Global Stamping Friends - Halloween

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Halloween Blog Hop.  I am so glad you could join us.
You may have reached my by last visiting Chrisitina Walker and seeing her wonderful creation.

Are you a Halloween lover or a Halloween loather? Either way, you have to love the excitement that it generates in our children. And the memories they are making are priceless. From choosing the perfect outfit to go Trick or Treating in, to special school events and wondering what candy they will get. I remember one year, my daughter and a school friend planned to go Trick or Treating. They hadn't bothered to tell us and they were too young to go by themselves. So imagine my surprise when I received a phone call from the other Mum after school telling me what the girls had arranged. We both had a good giggle and arranged to meet shortly after. The girls had an awesome time and even though it wasn't something we had planned to do that evening, we made some wonderful memories.

You can make even more memories by creating some cute treat packages like the one below. Imagine the fun you and your children can have making these for your childrens friends, teachers and coaches.

Make these super cute treat bags with just a couple of supplies that you can get from here - -  Simply Stamping with Narelle

This was so much fun to create. I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies to create the bag. Then decorated a piece of Smoky Slate card stock with hand drawn spider webs and sponged around the edges in Basic Grey ink. The spiders were made using the 1/2" circle punch. One full circle for the body and then using the same punch, I punched out arcs of Basic Black card stock for the legs and glued them to the back of the red circle. Use White Gel Pen to draw on the eyes and Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker for the pupils. The lettering was done with the Labeler Alphabet Stamp set and Basic Black Archival Ink.

If you have more than one child, they could each be given an element to do and the treat bags would be done in no time.

I hope you have enjoyed my project. Now it is time for the next wonderful project. This time by the talented Marieke Bart.
