Halloween Frankenstein Treat Bag Toppers

Frankie is always ready to help you make those Halloween treats hard to resist!! But beware some will not want to open him up, because he is so cute! These adorable treat bag toppers were made using the Stampin' Up! Big Shot (#113439). The Bigz Die is called Top Note (#113463) and is one of my favorites. The eyes & nose were made using the 1/2" Circle Punch (#119869). Brushed Silver cardstock created the bolts (#100712). I saved a step by using my 1" inch Square Punch (#124094 featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog) by cutting the square in half. His ears were created using the Large Oval Punch (#119855). The smooth-rolling ink of the Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen (#105021) made it simple to add those adorable stitches.

While Stampin' Up! has long been recognized in the stamping and crafting industry for producing high-quality rubber stamps and exclusive images in a variety of artistic styles, being recognized by Creating Keepsakes is just another validation that when you choose Stampin' Up! products, you are choosing the best!

Hot Air Ballon Card

Just thought I would share a simple card that I made today using the Create a Cupcake stamp set (W 121915, C 121982) & matching Cupcake builder punch (121807). As always. the last round of my technique club means the girls & I partake in a fun card SWAP. Notice the clouds are the "top" of the cupcake. The cupcake liner or "bottom" was used to create the adorable basket.

Colors used:

Bashful Blue (105120)

Whisper White (100730)

Melon Mambo (115320)

Tempting Turquoise (102067)

Old Olive (100702)

The hot air ballon pieces were attached using natural Hemp Twine (100982). My Big Shot came in handy for the embossed dotted background (Textured Impressions-Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder 117335). I handcut each blade of "grass" using my paper snips (103579). I love the look of the Chocolate Chip 5/8" satin ribbon (124327).

BTW~Stampin' Up!'s paper snips are by far the BEST crafting scissors I have ever owned. They stay super duper sharp & always cut with a clean edge (including ribbon-so you won't struggle with any frayed edges!!).

My Top 10 Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog Favorites

Holiday Mini (Flash Version)
Holiday Mini

Stampin' Supplies

With the launch of every new Stampin' Up! catalog, I challenge myself to narrow the field of amazing new products to 10 "must have" favorites. I look for beauty, versatility and just plain, old FUN! The following is my list of favorites from the Holiday Mini Catalog to inspire and help you develop your own wish list. Click here for a handy wish list order form.

1. Simply Scored Scoring Tool (p. 6-7, 122334). This "groovy" new tool offers score tracks every 1/8", marker guides to help you "keep your place" and a quality stylus with comfortable grip. Create boxes and envelopes in a flash.

2. Hand-Penned Holidays (p. 15, W124310, C124312). A stunning font that brings classic elegance to any paper project. Glorious when embossed.

3. Gently Falling (p.16-17, W123802, C123804). Jump in the leaves! Gently Falling is the perfect stamp set for Fall. Part of the Spice Cake coordinating product suite.

4. Holiday Stocking Bigz L Die (p. 24, 124098). Oh the places this stocking will go! Card stock, Glimmer Paper (now available in Silver, 124005) fabric, felt, cork sheets (think fun coasters), even thin metal can all be transformed in seconds. Click here the Big Shot Materials List.

5. Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper (p. 28, 124002). Classy, plaid and wood grain patterns. This handsome (downright preppy) paper will go to work for you during the holidays and year round. Coordinates with Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Whisper White.

6. 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon (p. 30, Cherry Cobbler 124105, Early Espresso 124104). Glorious sheen and "ooh la la" texture. This ribbon takes paper art straight to WOW!

7. Stitched Stockings (p. 34, W123782, C123784). If it has a coordinating punch (NEW Stocking Builder Punch, 123095), it heads straight to my "must-have" list. These cuties are adorable for the holidays . . . but keep an open mind. What about cropped for baby booties, argyle socks for Father's Day . . . . now you're talking.

8. Lighthearted (p. 35, W120274, C121157). I love the mix of fonts and tiny image. This sentiment set is the essence of a clean and simple card.

9. Peekaboo Frames Bigz L Die (p. 36, 124587). Who can resist this die after seeing the jawdropping advent calendar in the catalog? Coordinates with the new 1" Square Punch (124094) and 25 & Counting Stamp Set (W123792, C123794). However, don't stop there. What about unveiling a birthday cake, sweet sentiment, heart or jack-o-lantern?

10. À la carte stamps (p. 43) . . . you can't go wrong with any of them. These single stamps deliver budget-friendly fun.

What do you think? Am I missing one of your favorites? Please leave me a comment below!

Brand New: Simply Scored

Stampin' UP! now has it's VERY own scoring tool called Simply Score...and let me tell you, you're going to LOVE IT!!! Scoring marks every 1/8" and MARKERS that can be moved around so that if you're making multiples, you don't have to keep counting lines. OH. MY. GOSH. Fabulous does not even BEGIN to describe it!

5/8" Satin and 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon Share:

These two ribbons are like the above grouping- important and much needed, even though there is not as wide of an assortment as others, so they are being combined!

Please email me to let me know which shares you are interested in participating.

Please Note: items ship once your payment has been received.

Important Ordering Information:

Orders for shares will be sent out as they fill. For example, most all ribbon shares offered are an even distribution among 5 people, ao as soon as 5 people order, the ribbon will then be ordered. Please keep in mind that it is a process for me to collect orders, place orders, get the orderes in, then cut and divide everything appropriately before mailing. I will move as quickly as I can, but it can take a couple of weeks for you to receive your orders. Thank you in advance for your patience!!

SHIPPING INFORMATION - Sorry, but all shares will ship to US addresses only!
All Designer Paper Shares will ship USPS Priority Mail due to the weight.
Ribbon Shares will go USPS First Class unless you order multiples and I will stuff as many as I can into a Priority Envelope. Prices posted above do not include shipping.
