A Million Halloween Bookmarks

At least that is how many it felt like I was making.  I must've cranked that PTI bookmark die through my Big Shot at least 100 times.

Bookmarks for my son's kindergarten class.  At first I was not thinking and I was using my circle nestabilities to cut out the circle one at a time.  Hello!  I do have a circle punch too.  So I used that and it's so much faster for something like this.  The bookmark is made from PTI cardstock on the bottom and then their Halloween paper on top.  I stamped some images using PTI's Tiny Treats Halloween set.  (I love these stamps.  And I can't wait for Tiny Treats Christmas).  The neat thing about the acrylic stamps is that I could bend some of the longer sentiments to be rounded so that it would fit on the circles.  Saw that on PTI so had to give it a try.  My son colored them and he glued everything together.  He helped with the ribbon and I tied on the beads.

My daughter's set of bookmarks.  She did all of the coloring and gluing and the ribbon and beads too.  I helped her with some ribbon tying.

So my 2 year old has to get involved too.

My son also colored in these stamps from TGF's Spooktacular set and cut them out.  He glued them on to the tags that I die cut from Spellbinders tag set.  I was able to cut the tags faster since they are just construction paper so I cut about 4 or 5 at a time.  The "to" and "from" is from TGF's Signature set.

These are the assembled goody bags for his kindergarten class filled with some snacks, Halloween rings, erasers, stickers, pencils and bookmarks.  No goody bags for my daughter's class.  I figure they have outgrown them by now.

That's what we did on some of the days of their one week long fall break.  I love that my kids like to sit around and create things too.  And I'm so happy to have the Halloween treats all done and ready to go early cause before you know it'll be Christmas!  Time flies!

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
