Happy Halloween


CUTE!!  I used the Simon Says Stamp Halloween Limited Edition card kit (not the regular monthly card kit) and still had tons of goodies left over and some things I haven't even touched yet. The twine is from Trendy Twine - that's the only thing on these treat bags that didn't come in the SSS kit.

So for these goodie bags, I didn't put candy in them. Can you guess what fits perfectly in these paper sleeves? The parents are going to love me. LOL  Maybe not.  
Pop Tarts!
What kid doesn't love Pop Tarts?! 
They can eat the candy when they get home, and have Pop Tarts for breakfast. :) It's a well rounded sugar loaded couple of days that way. hahahahaha

Those spiders are actually clips! Can you believe that? What a great idea. I did add a little tiny glue dot to them just for the extra grip so the kiddos won't lose them while they are out piling candy into their pumpkins and bags. I love all of the die cuts that came in this kit. I think there were over 40 of them, and so you can image I have tons left to use for other projects.

I absolutely love the Simon Says Stamp card kits. Well, wait. Let me be more specific. I love them unless there is a lot of mixed media stuff in them, because I'm not at all interested in using paste and other mixed media things on my crafting. That's just my preference. I love seeing what others create with it, but I don't want to craft in that style. I like die cuts, metal dies, tons of paper, and embellies. But I know they have to include a little of everything to reach the wide spectrum of the crafting world. I get that. All that said.... I do love their card kits. :) 

Here's a look at all of the treats I've made for the trick or treat-ers.



Thanks for visiting with me today. 
I hope you enjoyed my projects.

Creep It Real


Oh my gosh! These treats were so fun to create!

I used the Simon Says Stamp Halloween Limited Edition card kit (not the regular monthly card kit) and still had tons of goodies left over and some things I haven't even touched yet.

These are one set of the treat bags I made. Tomorrow I'll show you the other set which is using paper sleeve bags instead of plastic zip top bags. Both are simple, and both turned out so cute!

For these bags, they were stuffed with Candy Corn, S'mores Candy Corn, and M&Ms. You'll notice a couple of the bags have an additional sucker in them. Guess where they came from?! Yep! Simon Says Stamp puts candy in your orders, and I never eat them, so they were used as extras in some of the bags. The kids will enjoy them.

Big hugs, everyone!
Happy Halloween Eve!
