I am so fortunate to be working with a wonderful woman in the library this year! She is amazing, and really went above and beyond to make the library a festive place for Halloween. The students loved it all month, and yesterday was a fantastic Halloween celebration. I used My Digital Studio to whip a quick scrapbook page commemorating how great it was. If you look closely at the top right hand corner of the picture, you can see some of the 100 witches’ hats that were hanging from the ceiling.


I’m going to print this out and give it to her on Monday. Have I mentioned how much I’m loving My Digital Studio? Don’t worry, I’ll keep telling you!

You know what I love about My Digital Studio? Well, I’ll tell you… I love that not only can I make amazing scrapbook pages, not only can I make fabulous cards, but I can make a huge assortment of other digital items as well. Case in point, I made a super cute flyer for my Halloween buddy at work!

I told you last week how we are doing buddies at work, leaving fun little treats for each other. Well, I knew I couldn’t stamp anything for her (or she would know it was me), but I sure could print something on the computer! So I put this together in about 10 minutes, printed it out, and left it on her desk with one of those little pumpkins. So cute and easy!

We’re doing Halloween Buddies at school — each teacher has a secret buddy that they give treats to for a week and a half before Halloween. It is so much fun! The bummer though, is that I can’t give anything stamped, because then my buddy would know that it was me! Arggh! Talk about frustrating! I f I could though, I would definitely give her this adorable Halloween matchbox.


It was Sarah‘s fabulous idea to put the little pumpkin faces on the Hershey’s nuggets. How cute are they?


Stamps: Holiday Blitz
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper
Other: Pumpkin Pie 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Matchbox Bigz XL Die, Big Shot, Hershey Nuggets

I really liked the color’s for last week’s Stampin’ Addicts Color Challenge. The colors were So Saffron, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Not Quite Navy. I wanted to make a fall card, but everything I thought of needed some shade of brown.Then I remembered that there was Old Olive in the Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper, so I decided to make a Halloween Card instead! This is what I came up with:

CIMG8511Stamps: Batty for You, All Holidays
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron, Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, 1″ Circle Punch, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch

The cute little Batty for You circles are actually attached to the inside of the card. I used my 1 3/8″ punch to put holes on the front so you could see them through it. Here’s what the inside looks like.


Halloween’s getting close! Are you ready?

I love making this card. It makes me so happy every year at Halloween to make my little spinning bat card. We made this yesterday at our stamping get together at work, and everyone loved it. What’s not to love really? It’s fun, it’s cute, and the bat moves along the track and spins! (Oh, and it also works for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge of Old Olive, Perfect Plum, and Pumpkin Pie.)

I’m on the social committee at school. We plan events where we can hang out and relax as a faculty — things that don’t involve school work. So of course I volunteered to host card making in the library. Our big tables are just perfect for stamping! Today was our first get together, and we had a lot of fun. We made a few different Halloween projects, and one of them fit perfectly with today’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. (Actually two of them did, but I’ll save the other for another day.) Throw in a little black, and these colors are delightfully spooky!


One of the Halloween treats that we made today was this great little bag. Look familiar? Of course it does! I have made them for Hanukkah, Valentine’s Day, and  St. Patrick’s Day. I just love the way two peppermint patties look covered with scalloped circles and Top Note Die Cut on the baggie! Here is my Halloween version:


Stamps: Batty for You, All Holidays
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Basic Black. Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper
Other: Top Note Die, Big Shot, Word Window Punch, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Small Cello Bags, peppermint patties

How cute would these be to hand out at Halloween parties> Or for very special Trick-or-Treaters?
