Halloween treats with googly ghouls …

I know Halloween was a little while ago now but I wanted to share these lovely projects made by my hubby!

This was his first attempt at stamping, and I think he made a pretty good job of it.

He started by stamping onto the labels, and once I showed him you could stamp onto the glassine bags too, there was no stopping him!

The kids loved the little sweet treat bags, and I think my hubby really enjoyed making them too.  Crafting was just the therapy he needed …

Creativity really is good for the soul.

And here’s a prettier use of the glassine bags from the kit…by my friend Michelle

I love the embossing Michelle did on the bag too – so pretty.

And the designer series paper she used on the gift card is lush!


Here’s what you need to make the Halloween projects – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

stamps: googly ghouls; ink: basic grey; accessories: ghoulish googlies designer kit, stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! event swaps …

Today I’m sharing photos of the beautiful swaps I received from members of the Pink Ladies team at the recent Stampin’ Up! event in Reading.  Swapping is a great way to share ideas and also to sample the lovely goodies from the new catalogues…

I got this cute little tissue holder from my upline, Michelle Last

Next is Nicole’s swap, using the perfectly preserved stamp set and matching die, so beautiful …

The little details Nicole added were stunning – love the glitter, and the tiny linen thread bow over the vellum … so cute!

Next is Sarah’s swap, using googly ghouls – love this little guy!

Peg’s swap – I can’t wait to get the new butterfly punch!

Catherine’s gift box swap, with a little bottle of Molton Brown shower gel inside …

Lynne’s swap using the new mitten punch …

And then I also received swaps from two ladies from other teams …

Marissa’s gift tag …

And I have no idea who made this ring as it had no name on it, but thank you for swapping with me, whoever you are!

I travelled to the event with Sarah – a fellow Pink Lady,

she made me this lovely thank you card and gift bow for the yummy box of mints she bought me …

I loved all the swaps I received.  I am so happy to be a part of the fabulous Pink Ladies team.

You can also see my swaps here.
