Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is going well so far, we are still harvesting but I am fitting in a little crafting time before work and in the evenings. Yesterday our weather cooled down a lot and I was cold all day, takes a bit to get used to when it comes in so quickly like that, although compared to the day before it was much nicer for working in, all in all I just want to get it done so I can work on the holidays. So much to craft and so little time already, lol.
Today I have a video of my quick and easy Reeses treat favor, they would also hold the large peppermint patties or even 2 hersheys minis placed side by side, I love that they are really easy to make, they are also a great craft project for the kids. I still have 2 daughters in elementary school and we are making a bunch of these for them to take to their Halloween class parties. These would be awesome for showers and parties of all types of occasions. They can be made quickly and take a very small amount of supplies to create. ( I apologize for the lighting, I had to film the video at night)
You will get 3 from a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cs, then I just used scraps of cs and dsp to create the tags, then you'll just need some ribbon, a little glitter and some adhesive, it's mainly some cutting and stamping!
Enjoy the video!
Stampin'Up! is still celebrating their 25th Anniversary....there are new items on sale today at my SU shop check it out- http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=1634
Tomorrow I have a Halloween greeting with a peekaboo window!
Thank you for stopping by,
Have a wonderful day!

Happy Monday, I can't believe how fast October is flying by, Halloween will be here before you know it, so over the weekend I took my girls to town to do some costume shopping, my younger two are going to be Monster High ghouls, lol, and my teen is going to be working in a local haunted house as a zombie :) Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, I've never stopped liking to play dress-up, lol, I think the only time I didn't was for a couple of my teen years, ever since I always dress up, Halloween is as much fun for adults as it is for kids, maybe more, lol.
This week I will be sharing Halloween projects, today I have a greeting card, on this greeting I added some glitter paper that I made myself! I used the new glitter from the holiday mini and the heat and stick powder, oh my this is so cool, now I can make glitter paper in any color of glitter that I have, if you haven't tried this technique out yet you have to try it, it's easy and fun and you will love the results.
Here is my card:
To make the pumpkin I use a circle punch and an oval punch then pieced together, although I trimmed it a bit to make the pumpkin more slender, the stem was hand cut.
On the inside I used a sticker from some steampunk stickers I have........
Tomorrow I have a video to share featuring a favor, you will love these little favors, they are quick and easy and fun to make! So be sure to stop by,
Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful spooky week, hehehe :)

Happy Friday! I am so happy the weekend is here, life is so busy lately that a little down time is much needed. I'm currently working on some Halloween goodies and getting ready for a November Glitter Queens Hop- the theme will be Christmas and will be sometime the first week of November.
Today I have a quick share, I want to get back to my craft room while I have some time this morning. I used some retired dsp and stamps to create this greeting, even though this stamp set is retired I still love it, the witch that I featured in this card is a favorite of mine.........today I ordered our new polymer set 'Bite me'.....I love the spider web in this set can't wait to try it out!
Here is my card:
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Well I am a bit later than I had intended on being with this post, so my apologies, but according to my husband harvest has priority over my papercrafts, go figure lol, men just don't understand the importance cardmaking and blogging, :-) while we are not completely finished with harvest one of the most exhausting jobs is done, the rest of the harvest will be part-time hours for me :-) so I will have time for my crafts and videos. Yea, with the holidays coming up I have lots of crafting to do and share!
I did manage to get todays video made this morning, I uploaded while I was working, but I'm just now getting it posted before bed, where does the time go. This video is of my peekaboo slider window card that I featured during the blog hop. (As I stated before this is a case of a card by Julie Davison) Thank you Julie!)
It's easier than it looks, I'm thinking of doing a Halloween version......how cute would it be having some spooky bat or witch or whatever behind the window, yep going to try that! :)
Here's a photo of the card:
I noticed that in the video I forgot to stamp the acorn on the tag that pulls out, you can see it in the above photo, sorry for that mistake, I'm still new to videography and make a lot of mistakes, lol, it's a learning process, thanks for you patience.
and here is the video, Enjoy
Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed the video, I will be back with another episode soon, so hurry back!
