Fall and Halloween Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Pals Hop! This month, we're featuring Fall and Halloween inspired projects! Enjoy the hop and the amazing creations that the Pals have come up with.  You've likely hopped over from Barbara Chatzkel's blog, http://takeoutpaperarts.com, I'm stop number 14 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Fall and Halloween paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track!
Here are a few Halloween projects I've managed to put together.

This one is a CASE of Shellie.  My demonstrator friend, Kathy, saw it and brought me the pieces to put it together.  It uses the pennant die and the cone die.  I added the sparkles with the new Dazzling Details from the Holiday mini.  I love the dazzling details product!

Here are the new cellophane treat bags from the Holiday mini.  They are so easy to put together and look so cute with the Batty For You stamp set as the topper.  Just think about how cute it would be to have a vase or a treat basket full of these for your trick-or-treaters (side note, I'm so excited to put Saige in a costume for her first Halloween.  I promise to post pictures later)
Here's another option for your Halloween treats.  This uses the treat box die.  The orange one is the regular size and the green one is an example of how you can fold your paper to extend the die and fit a regular sized candy bar inside of it.  Aren't they cute?!  (another thanks to Kathy for helping me with these as well).
I hope you've enjoyed my Halloween projects today.  Please hop along for more inspiring ideas from Cindy Hall at http://www.prettyimpact.com, stop number 15 on the September Pals Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!

PPA110- A spooky CASE

I've managed to work ahead and get a few things together for my next Card Club (starting 9/18 if you're interested, there are 3 more spots open!).  It's nice to have stuff done and not to have to worry with it at the last minute.  It also lets me play along with challenges like this weeks' PPA Halloween challenge.  Here is a card that we're going to make at the next Card Club (Sunday 9/18 and Tuesday 9/20).  It's a direct CASE from the Idea Book and Catalog (proof that it really is an idea book and shouldn't be recycled just when the catalog year is over, he he.)  If you're looking for a hobby now is the time to try out card making.  We have a few more spots open in our card club and would love to have you join us!
