Last Minute Halloween Treat Bag

Looking for a last minute Halloween treat bag idea? Just layer some die cuts onto a bag! I made this for A Jillian Vance Design today.

Halloween Treat Bag by Beth Pingry

I used a glassine bag, but this would work on just about anything. Just remember to vary the pattern on the die cuts. I also used 3D Foam Squares between the layers for more dimension and depth. Be sure to emboss the die cuts too, that adds a finished touch!

I used these supplies:

Broom Rides ~ A Shadow Box

My “Broom Rides” shadow box is up at SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Blog!  Here’s a quick pic of it:

The glass slides out, so I put the flying witch on the front of the glass, it makes her look like she’s really airborne!

Adhesives are by SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L, of course, and the die templates are from Spellbinders, and the stamps are JustRite Stampers, to name a few supplies.

And no, that’s not me on the front…but don’t go asking a certain teenager!


All Treats, No Tricks!

Spunky and Sparky celebrated and ate candy with their friends, we hosted a sleepover of Spunky’s 3 buddies. Wow, talk about a haul of candy! There was a wicked candy trading session upstairs, away from the sensitive schnoz of Cindy. I bought 2 bags of mini’s, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and a combo of Snickers, Milky Way, Twix and Nestle Crunch. Then we ate them. Then I bought a bag of Nestle Crunch, because I don’t like them anymore, and I did not let anyone open the bag. Then I caved and bought one more bag of Skittles and Starburst on Halloween day. We don’t have a lot of trick or treaters here so I had to buy something that takes a while to chew, unlike the chocolate stuff that gets inhaled. Trust me, I only eat chocolate for its medicinal purposes.

On Halloween I got the best treat of all, my Spellbinders dies came! Yippee, I’ve been as anxious as the rest of the world, but I already had 7 prototype dies I got in June, unlike the rest of you. But you know how you have tons of scrapbook supplies, then you get this brilliant idea that requires that one thing you don’t have?

So yesterday I released those dies into the wild, or the dining room table, that is. Yes, I do have a dedicated scrapbook room. At the moment, its all I can do to shovel a path to the computer desk. The work desk, um, there’s no room to work on it right now. I need about 2 weeks worth of time standing still to overhaul the room. Anyhoo, the point of this is to say I’ll be sharing how I have my dies stored. I’ll take some pictures and get that up this week.

Sorry about the lack of artwork, I can’t post recent stuff until I get the OK from the boss. A lot has been pulled for company use, and they get first dibs. I have not been creating regularly for a long time, but I finally feel so much better health wise. I expect to do more personal stuff to post here, bear with me.

AND in honor of Digital Scrapbook weekend, I have been doing my part for the economy at my favorite stores. One of my goals is to keep learning PSE, do more hybrid and all digi stuff, and eventually make my own kits. Can someone come over here and tag all my photos and digi stuff? It’s rather tedious and I just don’t have the attention span for it.
