Trick or Treat?

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Another week has passed us by. I hope you have had a fantastic week and even squeezed in a little crafting. This month is flying by, Halloween is less than a week away and that means the month is over.  Don't blink because it will be gone.

This week for Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing some Halloween treats with you. Be sure to head over to the blog to see what the others created. There are some cute projects.


Here is my sweet project. I don't particularly care for scary Halloween themes so I decided to go with a sweet little jack-o-lantern that anyone would be sure to love.  What did I make? I made a bag-o-lope. Say what? Yep, it's a bag made from an envelope. We all have plenty of envelopes around so there's no excuse not to try it. 


First, you want to stamp your envelope. Way easier while it's flat, trust me. 😉 For my envelope I stamped it and then took the black stampin' write marker to make additional plaid on the buffalo check. Once you have it stamped to your liking, you will score it evenly on three of the four sides. For this particular bag, I scored it at 1/2" on the three sides. I cut the envelope down to 4 1/2" and sealed the flap before trying to "open" the bag." 

I fold the scored edges back and forth a few times to make it easier to shape the bag. Then you will pop the sides and the bottom in. You will need a little adhesive on the triangle pieces that are extra from the sides to attach to the bottom of the bag.

Then just make a cute little tag and attach it to the bag with a dimensional. Oh, yeah, you need to fill it with some spooky crinkle paper and treats before you give it to anyone. An empty Halloween treat would be a not so nice trick to play.


This is the back of the bag. It's difficult to see in the picture where the flap of the envelope is but it's really there. It's between the third and fourth vertical black lines. I just wanted you to see that it totally doesn't look like an envelope any more.  Pretty neat, right? This is certainly an oldie but goodie. I made these almost 19 years ago when I first started with Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping for more Halloween treat ideas. You still have time to make a few treats for your little Trick or Treaters.

Smile, it's Fall


Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Hope you are having a fabulous Friday. I'll be honest, mine isn't so fab since I am not feeling well. You know it's bad when you come home from school and take a nap, a four hour nap! Hopefully that's just what I needed and I'm on the upswing now. I think it's sinus related.

However, it is Friday and that means fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping. Good thing my project was already made because who knows what it would look like if I had to create today.  (HAHA)


The theme today is a fall card. My card is "fallish." It's a bit untraditional, guess that is who I am right now being my last card was a little untraditional as well.  I love the ferns that come with the new daisy set, Daisy Lane.

I stamped the ferns in two different colors, pear pizzazz and garden green before cutting them out. Again, my color inspiration came from some designer series paper Garden Lane. Be sure to use your resources in that catalog to help you make beautiful looking projects.

Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more fall inspiration. Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon.

Welcome Fall Y'all Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

It's a great night to share some fabulous fall creations with you. It's time for a blog hop with the Stamper's Dozen. This month is all about welcoming fall y'all. I love the fall season for all things fall: leaves turning colors, pumpkins, hayrides, cornstalks, crisp weather, apples (not apple cider, though) and so many other things. However, I never really get super excited about fall coming because I know what is coming WINTER!!!!! And I will say, I do not love all things that come with winter because it lasts too long here in Northeast Pennsylvania. Once that snow starts it likes to stick around until March, so I will hold off as long as possible. Know what I mean?


I used a nontraditional fall look for my card. I didn't use a ton of orange, reds, browns and greens on my card. I went with a more elegant, subtle look by using more neutral colors and just a little bit of the pretty peacock. I know pumpkins are overwhelmingly orange but I have to say, "I love white pumpkins!" I actually have several around my house that I use to decorate with every year. You know me, I like to be a little different if I can.


Honestly, the paper was my inspiration to stick with a white pumpkin on this card. See those few white ones? I love how Stampin' Up!'s designer series paper can help guide my projects and I know I will love the finished look thanks to the both the designer and colors in the paper.

Don't forget to keep hopping through each of the blogs below. I'm positive you will find more great fall inspiration. Thank you for stopping to visit. I appreciate the love and support from you.
