Morning, y’all! Happy Tuesday. I’m not going to tell you about my Monday – the morning in particular – cuz…you’ll decide I’m cray cray and unfollow me! Let’s just say that Monday started at 5:30 when I set off the alarm in the house even as I stared at the big sign that’s been on the door for three weeks that says “STOP – disarm alarm before opening door” and…it was for sure Monday all the rest of the day! So…I am very happy that this is NOT Monday!
I thought I’d give you a peek at the latest Paper Pumpkin kit – since the deadline for signing up for the October Joy To The World kit is fast approaching!
The September kit – called Hello Pumpkin – was a Treat kit. Everything you need to create 20 treat crackers – decorated for Fall, Thanksgiving or Halloween!
Like every Paper Pumpkin kit, it has an exclusive stamp set – the 11-stamp Hello Pumpkin set – and an ink Spot – this one is in Cajun Craze!
And – it also provided all the pieces and parts you’ll need for your treat crackers – including all sorts of cool die-cut flowers, vines, witch hats, pumpkins, doilies and sentiment labels!
Now – we live down a very long – and dark! – driveway. And we have a gate at the end. So….in the umpty-billion years we’ve lived here we’ve not had one single solitary trick-or-treater. Not-a-one. And parties aren’t really a thing for us. If that sounds sort of like you – and treat crackers aren’t really up your alley – let me show you some alternate ideas!
These used one of the scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut the centers out of the treat boxes to then adhere onto Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes card bases.
The sentiments are stamped onto the die cut banners and adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and the adhesives included in the kit!
A little die cut pumpkin from the kit finished the inside of each card, too.
It made 12 note cards – with plenty of leftovers to make even more!
Here are a couple more alternate project ideas from the clever minds of Stampin’ Up!
Now – just in case you do need Treat Crackers – this is a fun way to make a bunch! Here’s the quick video showing you how to put them together as planned! 🙂
Good morning, y’all! Well – it’s back to the real world and the grind and all that yada yada that is life-outside-an-inkin’-krew-retreat.
But – we’re already making plans for the Second Annual Inkin’ Krew Retreat – YEAH! – AND we’ll see a lot of these wonderful ladies in November at OnStage (plus some team members who weren’t able to attend this weekend). So…whoo-hoo!
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate it and hope you enjoyed the time! If not, but would like to watch the almost-but-totally-not-instant replay….here ’tis!
