Halloween Candy Bags for the team!

Hello there!  Haven't been posting much, but I have been crafting! 
My daughter coaches a junior varsity girls volleyball team and I wanted to make her girls a little something for Halloween.
I started with cute little bags purchased 3 for $1.00 at Hobby Lobby.  (Love these little bags, need to go back and stock up for Christmas)
Got my Stampin' Up supplies together. (Black cardstock, white cardstock, designer series paper, spider web folder, Lucky Limeade bakers twine, stamps, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/4" scallop circle punch, black stamp pad and adhesive and lime green tissue paper).  Came up with this cute little bag!  Filled them with candy and topped off with a little square of tissue paper and sent them off with my daughter today.

I have been only doing posts on projects lately, but I have to throw in a little bit of personal stuff today.  Please humor me. :)

First I have to say how proud I am of my adult daughter, She is a college graduate working 2 jobs.
One of her jobs is coaching the Salinas High School junior varsity volleyball team. She is a coach and a role model to these girls and that is just one of the things that makes me so proud of her!
Second good thing to post is that my husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary on October 9th. We had a wonderful little getaway and look forward to many more anniversaries and "little getaways".

I hope you have had a nice weekend and have a wonderful week!

Gift tags for a friend

 Hi there!  Hope you have had a good week and have enjoyed the cooler weather!  I sure have!
As a crafter there is nothing that makes me happier than when someone loves what I have made them, or someone asks me for help with a project.
These gift tags were made for a friend who had some thank you packages to put together.  She text me a picture of her gift bags and coordinating tissue and the sentiment she wanted.
I came up with these.  She really liked them!  That makes me happy!

Halloween Banner - Happy Fall!!!!

Even though Fall officially began last week, I had already decorated the inside of our house for Fall/Halloween on September 1st.
I didn't do any outside decorating until this weekend.  I didn't want to embarrass my son, who thought I was crazy decorating on September 1st.  Guess he just doesn't quite understand how much I love fall and Halloween! :)
I digress, I actually am writing this post to share with you a cute little banner I made for the mantle.
Of course I used all of my handy Stampin' Up tools for this project and I think it came out really cute!

Here is what I used:
Morning Post Alphabet Stamps
2-3/8" scallop circle punch
1-1/4" circle punch
Spider Web embossing folder
Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die Cut
Calypso Coral Bakers Twine
1/2" scallops dots ribbon Basic Black
Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper
(adhesive - dimensionals)
I love banners! Making this one was fun! 
If you want more info, want me to make one for you or teach you how to make your own, please leave a comment with the best way to contact you or send me an email.

Have a great week!
Be inspired to create!
