Halloween Treat Holder using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits

Fall is sure in the air here in Minnesota! There are a few leaves changing color already and some on the ground. It is nice that the weather is a little cooler!

I thought I would show you an idea using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Dies. You can make your own Treat Bag out of any paper you want! The set I used is called Spooky Fun and is in the just released Stampin'Up! Holiday Catalog!

The Designer Series Paper I used is retired. There is a new awesome package of halloween paper in the new Holiday Catalog and it will be posted in the supply list. It is fun to make treat packaging for the little Goblins that come to the door on Halloween.

Here is a video by Stampin'Up! home office on using the Mini-Treat Bag Thinlits


In my sample, I scored the top of the bag and folded it over using the Scoring Tool. I simply made a belly band to go around the bag.

Thoughtful Branches by Stampin'Up! Lets make a Thank You Card

Happy Friday everyone! Bring on the weekend! Time to relax and rejuvenate and more importantly CREATE! It has been very hot and extremely humid in Minnesota the past week! Can't be outside anyway unless you are at the lake or pool.  So, you have the perfect excuse to make some cards! So here is an idea for you.

The base cardstock is Early Espresso and is a very rich deep color of brown. This card has a fall vibe to it with the yellow leaves. I have already seen signs of fall with a few leaves on the ground so it is on its way! Yea for cooler weather!

The yellow color is called Crushed Curry and the blue bird is stamped with Marina Mist Stampin'Pad. I stamped the "Thank You" in Early Espresso for a tone on tone look. I just love the tree trunk in this set!! It is stamped with Early Espresso Stampin'Pad on Very Vanilla Cardstock.

It is great having matching Framelits with the stamp sets! Makes cutting out the images a breeze!

I hope you all like my card idea and it inspires you to CREATE!

Thoughtful Branches Limited Edition Bundle by Stampin'Up!


This is such a terrific Stamp Set and Framelit Bundle, you just have to have it! I know you will not regret owning it. This stamp set and framelit bundle is only available until August 31 while supplies last. Here is a card idea I came up with today.

The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock and I added a strip of Always Artichoke Designer Series Paper to the middle. 

The tree trunk and branches are cut out of Early Espresso cardstock and the leaves were stamped with Always Artichoke Stampin'Pad on Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the bird with Marina Mist Stampin'Pad and cut it out with bird die and the Big Shot.

I will post more samples I made using this set in the next few days. There is a lot you can do with it. So much fun designing with this stamp set and framelits collection.
I will post a supply list at the bottom of this post. Just click on the image to view this bundle in my online store.

Fun with the Foxy Friends Stamp Set and Upcoming Holiday Catalog

Isn't he cute! I made this card for the Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew Design Team Challenge. You can view all the projects for this month here. We were supposed to pair our favorite color with a neutral we rarely use. I had just bought the Smokey Slate Cardstock and Stampin'Pad so I decided to use it in this challenge. The color I reach for a lot is Pool Party. I use it all the time! I used a strip of the A little Foxy Designer Series Paper which coordinates with the cardstock and Foxy Friends Stamp Set. The Pool Party panel is embossed with the Woodlands Embossing Folder using the Big Shot.

I don't know if it is a good idea to send a card to someone that says "For You" and it has a skunk on it! LOL! But I already had him cut out and laying on my desk so I used it. 

These supplies are from the A Little Foxy Suite on page 56 and 57 of the Annual Stampin'Up! Catalog. I recommend buying the products in the Suite. You will have everything you need to create some great projects. This suite includes ribbon, cardstock, a stamp set and punch (can be purchased as a Bundle for 10% off) and Designer Series Paper. All supplies will be listed below this post.

I used a greeting from the Crazy About You stamp set but another one that would be great is called Here For You and is on page 48 of the Annual Catalog.

Coming Soon


The sales period for this catalog is September 1-January 3. If you have purchased product from me in the last year,you will receive a Holiday Catalog in the mail.
If you do not have a Stampin'Up! Demonstrator and would like a copy of the Holiday Catalog I would be happy to send you one. Just send me an email to

I hope you like my project and it inspires you to CREATE!
