2016 Treat Boxes

Couldn't resist trying these out this year ! The deisgn is not  scary and makes you smile.

Lost count but think I made like 16... There are two men in the office so it was nice to include them.  The box itself is nicely made and would be good to use in oher projects.  The back has a slit and the top has a pointy flap that slides into it.  I used a copic to shadow the face and the wart on her nose.  The nose is pop dotted.  

2016 Office treats

Halloween cupcakes are ready ...

Haunted House

Choosing the decorative paper and glueing the arched areas was the hardest part.  The Anna Griffin stripe paper here has black glitter on the black areas. I loved the criss cross patter paper by Martha Stewart for the roof. I embossed the shutters to create a textured look and added a touch of white ink.  Next came some Halloween tree's and mini figurines (mad scientist and gravestones).  The black xmas tree actually has some purple glitter which is hard to capture. The black twiggy trees are from the dollar store.  

The bottom panels of the house are embossed in a brick pattern.
I found orange flickering battery lights for inside that actually glow a redish/orange color - this made it a nice spooky glow in the windows.

Pumpkin Time in Vermont ! 
Love this time of year and all that it brings.  Apple picking, decorating with mums,corn stalks and hay bales.  Making a scarecrow for the yard.  Drinking pumpkin coffee and baking with pumpkin, zuccini, and smelling cinnamon.  Breads, pies and doughnuts with a glass of cider Being surrounded by friends and family and getting cozy.  Its been a whirlwind of a year for me -weddings,trips, and good times with friends.  Looking forward to a little quiet creative time before my next adventures. Turning 50 has been awesome!
Love this set of stamps..Everything you need is in this one set.  Several fall sayings with leaves, pumpkins, and acorn stamps. Couldn't resist some twine and stickles. Used a scalloped frame base style card cut from my silhouette cameo.

Gray sky day makes for a great crafty day !

A new sweater style embossing folder creates such a pretty texture.  Loved coloring with my markers, stamps, and adding that sparkle with stickles.
