A Halloween Treat

I have had the best intentions of posting more often but you all know how it works with the best intentions.  In fact I am already re-doing this post as somehow I lost it once already.  My big plan was to sit down Sunday night and set up my posts for the week.  Well that plan ended as soon as it started as I sat down to download my pictures only to find that the battery on the camera was dead.  So we shall start off the week later than expected.

Well on to my project….

I decided to make some quick treats for my daughter’s work.  Nothing fancy but these girls are going to have them open and eaten in record time anyways.

Guest Designer – Peggy Sue from ICrea8Cards

Hi! It's Peggy Sue from ICrea8Cards and I am so honored to be a guest designer at Creative Craft Corner! Karey has some awesome projects on her blog so be sure to check them all out!! I made this mummy treat bag to hold a few special treats for my own "mummy". Oh how she loves her chocolates!!

 

Mummy
I used cream colored paper and the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to make a treat bag. I took the left over scraps of paper and ripped them into several long pieces. I then inked the edges with Tim Holtzs gathered twigs Distress Ink and adhered the strips onto the bag using my ATG gun. Next, I cut black circles for eyes and attached a googly eye to each. I tucked them into one of the strips so they were just peeking out. Instead of attaching a tag, I stamped the bottom strip with a sentiment from Pink By Design stamps. So easy, so fun!
 
Thank you Karey for having me today!!

 

Guest Designer – Alyssa from My Thoughts Exactly

Hi it's Alyssa from My Thoughts Exactly!! I made little matchbook Halloween treats!  I used a kit called Put a Spell on Me from Shop Pumpkin Spice (www.shoppumpkinspice.com).

I stamped the cute little guys on white paper and colored them in with colored pencil then cut them out by hand. I used my Big Shot and the Spellbinders Labels 8 die (the second size) to cut the fancy shape. The directions for making the matchbooks can be found in the Put a Spell on Me kit at Shop Pumpkin Spice. I stamped directly on the matchbooks using MTE stamps and white ink. (Little bags for treats also come in the kit).

Recipe:

Paper:

Black – Recollections

Pattern – My Minds Eye Michievous

My Thoughts Exactly – Fright Night Phrases and Ghostly Greetings

Inkadinkaclings – Cute Ghouls

Boo!!

I was playing with some of the cuts on the Holiday Cakes Cricut Cartridge and wanted to try out this pumpkin cut since one of the pumpkins matched some pattern paper I had.  I also used My Creative Time's Small Talk stamp set.

My Cricut Craft Room’s Would You Ever Guess Wednesday!

Would you Ever Guess Wednesday

 On Wednesdays the design team tries to show you different ways to use your cartridges. We might use a cake cartridge in our regular Cricut and show you how to make a paper creation with it. We might use just the feature keys on the cartridge to show you some extras that people forget about.

If you look at the back of the cartridge it shows you all of the 'put together' images. But there are always bonus 'features' they may be a font or a phrase or even a tag, card or icon. We just like to keep you guessing what will be next on Wednesdays.

Today I used the Holiday Cakes cake cartridge to make this Halloween Card.

Guest Designer – Sarah Pink Cricut

Hi everyone! Sarah, here from Pink Cricut– and I am so honored to be guest designing for Karey today!
 
When she asked me if I'd help her this week, I was more than happy to help out such a caring, sweet and talented lady.
 
Today, I have a fun Halloween treat idea- that you can easily do for a classroom of children, your work friends or your neighbors.
 
The best thing about these little bags- is that you can get them pre-made at the Dollar Tree, and 10 come in a package! You can't beat that!

I decorated each bag with Teresa Collins Halloween paper, a Scalloped punch, Pink by Design Stamps, We R Memory Keepers embellishments, and Divine Twine.

I used embossing powder on the pumpkin, spider and hat images. Since, I didn't have orange embossing powder, I just mixed yellow and red before pouring it on the embossing ink. I think it turned out a fun marbled orange. 🙂
