Blog Hop: Halloween Punches

I was excited to participate in this blog hop! Halloween is my second favorite holiday, next to Christmas. So, when I heard that Kim at Paper Punch Addiction was having a Blog Hop...I knew I was going to join in!

I decided to make some Halloween treat bags. These are all made using Stampin' Up!'s Fancy Favor Big Shot Die (item# 115965 $39.95) A supply list of the other items I used will follow all the projects.

The first bag I made was the ghost. So simple, but oh so cute!

Next, the Mummy. I just love his eyes poking out of the layers!

Third was the Jack o' Lantern!

This is the Frankenstein bag, so fun!

My absolute favorite, the Warewolf! I'm delighted at how great he turned out!!

Here is a group shot.

Wouldn't these guys be so fun to hand out candy in to your trick-or-treaters?!

Halloween Projects

I've made a goal to try and use EVERY stamp set I have. So, I have decided that I am going to do a Days of Halloween in September (it will be late Sept. though because I'll be in California in a week!), Days of Thanksgiving, and Days of Christmas. I'm going to carry this out through 2011. I can't believe I just typed that, let's not rush things!

Anyway, stay tuned for Days of Halloween in September, it will carry through to October. Then end of October and through November will be Thanksgiving projects, and so on.

Thanks for visiting!
