Witch Hats - YUMMY!

Here is a super quick Halloween snack - Chocolate Witch Hats!

Here's what you need -

Keebler Fudge Stripe cookies
Hersey's Kisses
Icing - Mine was orange/yellow stipped but any Halloween-ish color will do.

That's it! You turn the cookies upside down and use the icing to adhere an unwrapped Kiss to the cookie. Voila! A super cute and yummy Witches Hat!

I hope you enjoyed our quick, little project today! {{{ HUGS }}}

Frankly, Your the Best! :)

We made these for my 2 daughters to take for their teachers as a little Halloween treat - Giant Candy Bar Frankensteins.

These are so easy and fast to make - we took a 12 x 12 piece of patterened paper and cut one side down to 6.75" then wrapped the paper around the bar and eyeballed how where to cut so that there was enought to wrap around and glue. I found these Frankenstein face cards at Walmart for 98 cents for a pack of 8 - what a deal! We stamped the "Frankly, Your the Best!" sentiment from our SMS Bewitched stamp set. Ta-Da - a quick and easy Halloween treat!

Stop back tomorrow for another little Halloween craft that the kids and I are working on! :)

P.S. - The little bat and monster were painted by my daugher Emily at our local potter painting place. :)

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Doodlecharms

Happy Tuesday! For this weeks challenge I decided to use the snowman from Doodlecharms (a popular choice among us on the DT - LOL)! I also put him in a snowglobe. It's hard to tell but he's on a wobble - I just couldn't remember how to slow down my shutterspeed to capture the movement and need to get it posted.

I use Stickles to make my snow and reflection sparkel. I use baker's twine to make the scarf - that was the hardest part of the project! LOL The sentiment is from SMS A Holiday to Remember stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek! Have a wonderful week!

Buggy about Birthdays Hop!

Welcome! You should be arriving from the FABULOUS Techniques by Trish - wasn't Trish's project great! :D First, I want to say thank you to Corri for inviting me to join this hop for her Birthday!

My project was for my daughter's 10th birthday which was yesterday! She is an AVID reader and can NEVER find a bookmark. You should see some of the stuff she winds up using to mark her place... candy wrappers, paperclips, twist-ties, etc. LOL So I decided to make her some bookmarks and find a good place for her to keep them. I bought a slider pencil case from the $1 section in Michaels - I planned to decorated it but ran out of time, at least it's her favorite color. :)

I used paint chips for the actual bookmark - my kids love them and always have to get a few everytime we go to Home Depot. They are so colorful and easy to use! The bugs are from Create a Critter, Car Decals, and Everyday Paper Dolls. I also used a variety of sentiments from Scrappy Moms Stamps. Note: I wound up using embossing powder for the stamps on the actual paint chips as my ink kept smearing.

I hope you enjoyed my little project, your next stop on the hop its the WONDERFUL Bonnie at Pink BonBons.

Sneak Peek # 4 - Believe in Miracles

Happy Friday! This has been a BUSY week around here, the kiddos have been on fall break from school and today is my oldest daugher's 10th birthday!! :D

I just wanted to pop in and post this card I made using SMS Believe in Miracles set...

I cut the butterflies from 3 different carts and made sure they all had 3 layers (including the contrasting body) so I could bend the wings up for a 3-d effect.

Thanks for taking a peek at my project today - I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Wish me luck with the b-day party and subsequent sleepover! LOL :)

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Welcome Fall!

Happy Tuesday! Today's TTC is a very special one - our 1st theme/color challenge! The challenge is to creat a fall project that uses brown and teal!

I actually have TWO projects to show you today - mine...

and my oldest daugher, Emily's...

Didn't she do a FABULOUS job?! When I showed her my card she said, "You could also use that stamp with a tree and leaves with PKS on them!". So I said, "Go for it!" She used the tree from Everyday Paper Dolls - cut in to colors for the layers. The leaf is from Create A Critter and she used 5 different PKS face stamps. I'm so proud of how creative she is - I love that she has her tree above the top of the card! I never think to do things like that, I guess I just need her to show me how to think outside the box and do things "against the rules"!! :D

My tree and owl family are from Lettering Delights. I used some extra-mini gems, a touch of stickles on the leaves and some baker's twine to add a little pizzaz. The sentiment is from our new A Holiday to Remember set. :)

I hope you enjoyed our two takes on the Welcome Fall TTC, please come and play along with us!

Happy Fall, Y'all!

SMS Sneak #2 - Have Yourself a Cozy Little Christmas!

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I have a project using our new Scrappy Moms Stamps A Holiday to Remember set...

I made the fireplace by converting a coloring page and the chair by using a page out of a furnature owner's manual into SVG files. LOL Yes, I did say a furnature owner's manual! It was the only image I could find of the back of a chair. :D

I used my Distressed Strips embossing folder by Cuttlebug for the background and a little bit of Stickles on the fire and the stocking caps.

Here is a picture of the full A Holiday to Remember set...

Remember that we are having a FREE SHIPPING special thru 10/16 over on the Scrappy Moms Stamps blog!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Introducing TWO new Scrappy Moms Stamps sets!!

Hello, everyone! I am so happy to share with you two new Scrappy Moms Stamps sets being released today...

This set was created with fall and winter crafting projects!

This is a VERY SPECIAL set for us at Scrappy Moms Stamps! We wanted to create a set to help support those whose lives have been touched by cancer. My mother had both breast and kidney cancer and my husbands mom also has kidney cancer. It is aweful watching someone you love struggle with this disease! We hope to do some small part in the fight against cancer by donating $2 from the sale of each set to a nation cancer research and support organization. (Once we get approval to use their name/logo I will post the info here - but I'm sure you are all familiar this this "society")

My project today used Believe in Miracles...

I made the using MTC to turn clip art into an SVG file. :)

We are also running a FREE SHIPPING special from 10/7 (today) throught 10/16!!

I hope you enjoyed my little project! Please be sure to visit all of the SMS Design Team - including our October Guest Designer, Heather from House Built of Cards - all this week for new projects!

World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the World Card Making Day blog hop by Scrappy Moms Stamps! If you are joining me from Nicole's WONDERFUL project then you are on the right track. If you want to make sure you follow the hop order you can go back to the Scrappy Moms Stamps blog. :)

Here is my card project for the day...

I decided to try something I have never done before in honor of the day - a spinner card! It's not exactly what I envisioned and I can't get it quite balanced. LOL Still, I think it turned out pretty cute. :)

The owl and branch are both from Hoot 'n Hollor - the owl is cut at about 2". I used the narrow rectangle and 2 circles from George and Basic Shapes to make the channel for the spinner.

I added 2 large pink gems and a stamp from SMS Sweet Somethings set to finish the card.

I hope you enjoyed my project today, be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a SMS Game Day stamp set! I know that Blogger is having issues with posting comments so if you have difficultly you can leave your comment with a way to contact you if you win on my CBox on the right side-bar.

Your next stop is the FABULOUS Corri! :)
