Batty for You Nugget Box

I used Stampin Ups Batty for You stamp set and a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers to make this little Hershey's nugget box. I used textured black card-stock and some old Halloween DS paper. The ribbon is just something I had in my stash that matched. I used the SU decorative label punch and layered it on top.

Witches Hat Treat Holder

This is a case from the very talented Sharon White. I just joined her virtual club which I think is a great idea for sharing tutorials. I used the petal cone, scallop, and circle dies. There is a little pull out at the bottom that conceals a hole to get the candy out. I used some old Halloween SU DS paper and greeting to complete this project.

Petal Cone Bat treat holder

I used the SU petal cone die and top not dies for the Big Shot to make this treat holder. It is my version of one I saw on Shelli Gardiners blog on the Stampin Connection. I embossed the wings and added a little smooch spitz for some sparkle.

Fall Rosette Wreath

I  made this wreath with my new Simply Scored scoring tool from Stampin Up. I used some Really Rust, Close to Cocoa and Old Olive cardstock as well as the DS paper SU sold last year to coordinate with the  Day of Gratitude stamp set. I embellished with the Day of Gratitude stamp set, antique brads and oversize Spice Cake buttons available in the upcoming SU mini. I used hot glue to make all the rosettes. I have tried making them before and nothing else holds as well.

Cover Page and Page 2/3 for my Cape Cod album

This is my cover page for the album I am keeping of our family vacations to the Cape. This photo was taken at Duck Harbor in Wellfleet at Sunset by a neighbor of my MIL. I used a sheet of Coordinations cardstock for the background and cut the circle with a piece of patterned paper from CTMH. I stamped the word family in glue with a Stampin Up alphabet set and put some Stampin Up glitter over it. The chipboard words and embellishments are Karen Foster that I received as a gift. I cut the large wave from the Graphically Speaking cartridge and the smaller ones are from Life's A Beach. They are Stampin Ups new color Pool Party. I used TH inks for distressing and embellished the waves with these Bead Dazzler things that look really pretty in the bottle but don't stick to the glue very well.
 This is my page two/three. I really showed of the new Stampin Up In Colors on this page. I used Pool Party, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral for the flags. I used some really pretty patterned papers from BoBunny. I only had scraps left so I punched and cut out interesting pieces  to accent my page. The background is two sheets of DCWV cardstock that I sanded around the edges. The Cape Cod title is from Stampin Up chipboard that I colored Calypso Coral and sprayed with Smooch Spritz for some sparkle. I used the Birthday Bash cartridge to cut the flags and hemp twine to string them. The ribbons and brads are from my stash.
