All In A Day

I decided to stay home this weekend because of the weather forecast.  Because of that, I set my mind to do my halloween goodie bags for Friday.  I'm actually looking forward to this year's Halloween and I hope we get to have more trick-or-treaters. 

This project made me love my Cricut machine more.  It was easy for me to make the goodie bags because I have the Bags, Tags & More Cartridge.  I Sure wish that I have the Cricut Expressions so I could make bigger bags, but right now, I'm still very happy and contented with my original "Bug".  To decorate my goodie bags, I embossed with the Cuttlebug Spider Web and swiped Tsukineko Brilliance Ink Pad in Lightning Black over it.  I also stamped images with the bunch of halloween stamps that was PIFed/RAKed to me by Amber of SplitCoastStampers.  For embellishments, I just used all my leftover ones from the past years.  To see more photos of the goodie bags, click here.

Since I still had lots of candies, I decided to just make halloween tags for plastic goodie bags, also leftover from back when we were still in Japan.  I just punched cirlces from the leftover cardstock I used for the goodie bags, then adhered left over stickers.  I'm actually proud of myself because I only spent about $12 for this project - and that's only for the candies!

I was still in my ol' creative mood, and I thought I still had time to make cards for another card swap I joined in SplitcoastStampers.  There is no specific rule really.  All we had to do is make festive Christmas cards.  The inspiration started from the background paper from the DCWV Christmas Stack.  In this card, I used 2 corner punches:  slit corner punch by EK Success, and corner punch by All Night Media.  I love the "Happy Holidays" image by Inkadinkado, embossed with Kodomo No Kao embossing powder.  The over-all design is simple, and I like it.
That's it for now, fellow crafters!  Till next blog :)
