It might be a little warmer today than yesterday! But I'm enjoying the much cooler temperatures. Yesterday on Facebook I shared my projects that were a revisit of the past.
And the last project, which is the candy wrapper, was from an older project...I think I attended the event as a guest and made it! This also uses Howl-o-ween Treat and the Toil & Trouble DSP! I think my favorite part is the googly eyes on the Owl. So easy to make.
First, the measurements will depend on the size of the candy box you are wrapping. I purchased some M&Ms I found at the Dollar Tree.
Choose your wrap, I used 12x12 sheet of Basic Black CS. 3x12 on the 12' side score at 2 1/8, 2 3/4, 9 1/8 and 9 3/4.This will sit lengthwise on the candy box, it will not cover the whole top, we will create belly band.
Again the size of the belly band depends on the size of the candy box. I cut DSP to 4x9. Wrap the DSP around the box, gently creating score lines at the creases. Do not adhere together.
I used Layering Circles and Stitches Shapes for the embellishments. I stamped the owl in basic black and colored the eyes in with Daffodil Delight......do not add the googly eyes until you have cut the belly band.
I added to pieces of ribbon, folded in half to create a loop under my circles. This will allow your to pull the belly band open. Adhere your embellishment to the center of the creases. This will be the top of the belly band. Line up the DSP in your trimmer and cut in have to 2x12. I made sure to choose an image that would cut in half nicely. Then wrap each half of the band around the box and adhere.
Easy as that! Then I added the googly eyes and let them dry.
Here is the original project. Too cute right!! The googly eyes are the best!!!
I hope you try these projects too! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
Happy Halloween and Happy Stampin

WOW September is rolling right along! And here in Massachusetts it doesn't feel like fall is ready to make it's appearance yet! We've had record breaking temperatures with nasty humidity! I am hoping it cools done soon! I look forward to the cool crisp air, changing leaves...except when I have to rake them, and smells of fall like baked apple pies and pumpkin spices! I love to decorate and get into the spirit of Halloween for the kids! So, I am so excited to share my projects with you!
I want to welcome you and thank you for stopping by the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for September. My blog hop winner, from the August hop, is Barbara Welch! Congratulations! Barbara will receive 1 set of the completed projects I made in August. So be sure to comment on my blog for this month and I will send you a little prize from me!
Did you hop over from Kim Jolley's blog! Weren't her projects just amazing??
Let's jump into the projects!!! If you haven't notice, this month's theme is Halloween! I decided to redo a project I made before. It's a Halloween Countdown Calendar! OMG It's adorable!
I first, came across the idea either from Facebook post or something on Pinterest. But the information is all on Splitcoaststampers website. The project and directions are from Melissa Stout and you can find all the directions by clicking here.
I won't go in to much detail about the directions. I made a couple modifications in mine, I will share those. My first modifications are the supplies used. From the original project, the boxes, DSP and tools were discontinued and I wanted to make sure I used current supplies. Of course, you can use whatever supplies you have!
So..what I did was use the Giftbox punchboard and made a 3.25' box. I used 2 pieces of 12x12 cardstock and cut them to 10x10. I followed the scoring instructions on the punchboard. Now, if you are familiar with our punchboard, then you know it's going to allow you to have a box that will open out. Since I knew I wasn't use the box to put anything in, I just sealed it all up.
I put adhesive in each of the corners and then sealed the lid. Normally, if I wanted the box to be used but to stay square, I would have adhered the inside tabs to the sides so they don't get in the way of the contents. You can see in the pictures below regarding the tabs.
Because my box is 3.25' and the original project was 3'. I adjusted the paper size to accommodate. Melissa's directions was for 2 pieces of cardstock to measure 6 1/2x 8 1/2 and 6 1/2x10. I changed mine to 7x8 1/2 and 7x10. I changed the score lines on 7x8 1/2 paper to 3/8, 3 3/4, 4 1/2 and 8 1/8 and this work fine. I did not need to change the score measurements on the 7x10 paper.
I picked out 6 patterns of the Toil & Trouble DSP. I cut 2 of each pattern to 3x3. I adhered this to the sides of my box. I followed Melissa's instruction on what numbers to cut out.
I didn't have to do too much stampin with this project. I used the Cauldron Framelits and matched up the shapes on the DSP and cut them out. I did use the greetings and ghost from the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and the moon from the Spooky Treats stamp set.
To get the look that the moon and bats are floating and flying in the air, I attached them to thin strips of transparencies. I know I have window sheets somewhere, but I can't find them. But good ole transparency sheets worked perfectly. I love this project. It is super easy and really fun to make. Melissa's directions show a Christmas version, which I think I am going to have to add to my list!!!
For my card, I made a Simple Step-Out Fancy Fold. I love this fold. You can get 2 cards from one piece of cardstock which is perfect. I was also able to use some of the DSP bits leftover from my project. It was super easy to make and I found the directions from the website Song of My Heart. Lisa Griffin Zwolanek shared her tutorial on how to make the card here.
I used Pumpkin Pie CS as my card base. It gives nice pop to the Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green in the DSP. Lisa provides the measurements for the layers as well! I chose my layers first, then decided what I was going to use for images. I said this earlier, I did very little stamping with both the card and the project. I love that the framelits match up to the images on the DSP! When you're in a rush or time is limited this really helps complete projects quickly!! Love how Stampin Up thinks of everything!
I hope you enjoyed my projects, be sure to continue along to Melissa Thomas's blog you can fine her name below and continue from there.
Before you go, be sure to comment, and I will draw one lucky winner of a little blog candy by October's blog hop!
Thank you again for joining us
Happy Halloween and
Love it, live it, share it. Dive into the new holiday catalog, and fall in love! Once you’ve decided which new products you’re going to order, contact me, or click here to order online! Then start stamping and creating. Finally, share you passion for papercrafting by inviting your friends and family to join your fun!
First I laid the stamp do...stamp side up and the I inked it up using Cajun Craze. Lay the cardstock on top, and then I folded over my grid paper and rub the top of it evenly, then gently lift of the cardstock! So much easier than trying to get an even stamped image the other way!!
The truck image is from the new Farmhouse Christmas stamp set! I LOVE THIS SUITE. It was the first suite that made my list of must haves!! Even though this is a Christmas set, I think it works pretty well for Fall, just leave the sentiments out!
I stamped the image and then cut it out with the new limited Stitched Seasons Framelits. The leaf is also from this framelit set and I used Copper foil sheets
I colored the truck in with the new blends. I used Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Basic Black, Shaded Spruce, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate.
The banner is cut from Old Olive using the Triple Banner Punch. I crumbled it all up and then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze. I used the new Braided Linen Trim for the bow!! This can be found in the new Holiday Catalog in the Country Lane Suite!
The bag is basically the same layout as the card. I used a white craft back I bought at AC Moore! I am filling it with fall soaps to give as a gift!!
I hope you liked my projects, be sure to leave a comment. I will be drawing 1 lucky winner to receive this completed project...minus the soaps (oops)

Thank your for joining the June Stampin Friends BLOG HOP, where we are celebrating the first day of summer! We have an amazing Hop for you this month!!!
Be sure to follow each blogger to see all 12 of the awesome projects that have been created and shared for you! If you get lost a long the way, there is a list of participants at the bottom of each of the blogs!
Since today is the first day of summer and school is almost over, I decided to make some teacher gifts! All of my projects use current Stampin Up products! I hope you enjoy what I have planned for you!
My projects theme was from a Lemon Verbena car air freshener I came across from a local store. I was very excited to see the Lemon Zest was carried over to the new annual catalog. So it was a perfect fit for this month's hop.
The projects use some new and returning products. My color choice was the New In Colors Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Call Me Clover; 2017-2018 In Color Lemon Lime Twist. Stamp sets are returning Lemon Zest and Daisy Delight.
My First project is a large clothespin. I found them at AC Moore, pretty inexpensive. I cut the cardstock to 1 1x2 x 6 1/8, embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder. I stamped, punched and layered 3 daisies and finished the center with a Faceted Gem. I added a few strands of the Gold Mini Sequins Trim.
The books mark is 2x4 1/2. I found the sentiment online and printed it out on Whisper White. They can use the bookmark or keep it display in the clothespin. Finished with the Pineapple Punch Grossgrain ribbon and a bow made from Linen Thread.
My card was super easy. Pineapple Punch base layers are Whisper White and the coordinating new In Colors DSP 6x6 Stack. Then a banner cut from the Grapefruit Grove paper that was embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder. The sentiment was printed on Whisper White then stamped over with the Lemon. Finished off with the Call Me Clover Grossgrain ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed my projects, be sure to leave a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts. I appear to be the end of the hop, but incase you missed someone along the way, you can find all the hoppers listed below!
Hope you have a wonderful summer
Thanks for stopping by
and Happy Stampin
