More Halloween ... School Treats

I have two small kids who are both in School so this year I went simple and gave pencils to my oldest daughter's class and Rockets (in the US they are called Smarties) to my youngest daughter's class.  Below are the toppers I made using an old retired stamp set from SU called Booglie Eyes! I love this set and they were so fun to color with both pencil crayons and Copics. 
I also used some punch art using the owl builder punch from SU! I love punch art!

Happy Halloween!!

We love Halloween at our House!  Not only is it my oldest daughters birthday but it is fun and spooky and full of costumes and candy! We have our yard all ready for the trick-or-treaters on Monday and now we just hope it does not snow. 

Every spring and fall I go on a Paper Crafting Retreat hosted by my good friend Amber Chapman from Wildrose Paper Creations.  This past weekend I spent with some good friends, crafting up a storm and two of my favourite projects from the weekend are Halloween related.  The first was inspired from the "Village of Cuteness" class we took at the Stampin Up Convention this past Summer.  I have seen so many cute Spooky versions of this, that I had to make my own. 
I used the Pick Your Poison DSP from the SU mini.  I love this spooky paper, I got lots of ideas from some of the other Stampin Up Demos who have made these great little villages and I put my own spin on it where I could.

I added some Spider web to the roof of the orange house to look like smoke and some to the flower bed on the purple house along with some small spiders I found at the dollar store.  My favourite part is the skull in the window on the orange house! Hope you like them.

One of my other favourite projects from this past weekend was an idea I got at the SU Regional's in Edmonton last month.  Again I am using the Pick your Poison DSP from the mini and the Piece of Poison Stamp set which I WON at Regional's!!

This Spooky Banner was so fun and so easy.  I bought the Pick your Poison Quick Accents and it made things very simple.  Enjoy :)

New Blog ...

If you followed me on my Shaw webspace account (and not many did) then I hope you will enjoy my new blog here at blogger.  I looked into a few different blogs but this one was the easiest for me and had no cost! :)  Anyway my old posts are still at so please feel free to check out some of my older stuff. I have really enjoyed sharing my creations with my friends and I am hoping with this new blog I can share this fun hobby with more than just my friends.  So welcome and enjoy.
