Stampin' Up! Happy Haunting Washi Tape Halloween Card for the First Ever Blogging Friends Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the FIRST ever "Blogging Friends Blog Hop!"
Up until one month ago we were a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada whom had never met before.  Well, actually, we still haven't met yet (in person)... But, through our common bond of Stampin' Up! and a shared love of paper crafting we have created a fun, new blog hop!  Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!

I want to welcome all of you new visitors to my blog!  Thanks for following along our Hop!  Be sure to Subscribe by clicking on the right hand side of my blog so you don't miss out on our Blog Hop next month!  I hope you have been enjoying the Hop so far.  So many fun ideas from so many talented ladies!!!  Please leave a comment below.  I always love to chat with other crafters!

This month, our Blog Hop theme is Halloween and Fall.  I have been having so much fun creating Halloween crafts the last few weeks!  My absolute favorite Halloween product has been the Happy Haunting Washi Tape!  I have been using it on everything!  If you follow my blog, you already know that :)

Along with the Happy Haunting Designer Washi Tape, I used a scrap piece of a Spiderweb Doily that I had left over from this Halloween card that I made a few weeks ago.

I used the two largest "splatter" stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Tangelo Twist and Basic Gray inks.  I just love breaking out this stamp set!  It is so fun to use!

The "Spooky" stamp is from the Among the Branches stamp set.  I stamped it in Whisper White Craft ink on Basic Black card stock.  I love how the white on black makes it look like a full moon!

Here you can see the fabulous sparkle from the Black Glimmer Paper!  Oooo I love this paper!  In my video below I share a little tip to stretch your precious Glimmer Paper, too :)

September 2015 Stampin' Up! My Paper Pumpkin Wickedly Sweet Treat Kit - Alternate Treat Bag Idea

I am love, love, loving my Paper Pumpkin Kit this month!  This month's kit was designed to create the treat bags in the photo above.  I loved the design and wanted to use them for my Son to give treats to his friends in his toddler preschool class.  My only problem was that the applesauce pouches I wanted to use as the treat inside didn't quite fit.  So, I played around a bit and I'm loving the alternate design that I came up with below!

How cute is that?!?  I love the kraft fringe!  And, because the bag is open on top, you have a lot more possibilities with the treats you can include!

In the side view above, you can see that I just added the fringe layers to the front of the bag.  The top layer of fringe goes all the way around because I just folded over the top of the bags included in the kit.  So easy and so cute!  And, just about everything I used was included in this month's kit.  I really just added in the washi tape from the Happy Haunting washi tape set.  I have been loving those washi tapes recently!

I made another video so you can see how quick and easy these little treat bags are!  I promise it is one of my shorter videos :)

I am having so much fun with this month's kit!  Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you don't miss out on all of the fun alternate projects I will be sharing!  I would love to see what you create with your kit!  Please leave a link in the comments so I can check it out!
