Jocelyn’s 3rd Birthday


I made these treats for my oldest Granddaughter’s Birthday. She turns 3 on October 1st. Jocelyn is going to take these to day care and share with her friends. I had some Pocket Notes left over from the last mini catalog (I think) and I used the retired stamp set, Pretty Princess.  Last year at Halloween I found these candy corn that were pink & purple and thought they would be cute for our ginger bread houses we make every Christmas, so these are left over and they go perfect with the suckers and the pail that I found at Target in the $1 section. For the pail I used 4 large eyelets with the Crop-a-Dial and ran our new Pink Pirouette (I wish I could remember how to spell that color without getting out the stamp pad or looking in the catalog.) through each eyelet and tied a bow. Added some more ribbon on the handle. Turned out pretty cute, don’t you think? I tried to turn the 1st photo around, but it won’t stay turned around when I go to post to my blog.

Say it With Scallops Class


I had a class yesterday using the Ronald McDonald set, Say it With Scallops. Included with the class fee, each person received the stamp set and we made these 4 cards. We used all four stamps and several of the new DSP, In Colors and the yummy ribbon that matches. Then my 2 gal’s had to have the scallop square punch and the edge scallop punch too! The square punch just makes the stamp set “shine” if you know what I mean.

Spider & Bat Tin



I saw these cute spiders on Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts and then my friend showed me how to make these bats. Found these cute tins at Target in the $1 area and and idea took shape. Aren’t these so cute? Dawn has a video on how to make the spiders. The bats are made with the square scallop punch folded in half to make a triangle and then you cut at an angle about 1/4″ in on each side and then fold back the part you just cut to make the ears. Sounds way more complicated than it is. I attached both the spider and the bat to the 1 3/4″ Lovely Lilac circle punch and added the dangle, which is from the stamp set, Batty for you. This was attached to a Pixy Stick with a dimensionals. I put Kit Kat & Milky Way bars in the tin and stuck the spider and bat into the tin. The candy bars are holding up the Pixy Sticks. I just noticed that one of my spiders doesn’t look very good. I smodged the ink, and of course I already sent the tin with my Husband today. He starts a new job today (Yeah!) and I told him he would make great friends with candy on his desk. He agreed and took it with him this morning.  So I will make another one and post a better photo.
