CTMH Thin Cuts Dies Without Stamping

Hearts Thin Cuts Dies

I have fallen in love with all of CTMH’s *NEW* Thin Cuts Dies.  Initially, CTMH only offered Thin Cuts that coordinated with stamps (which is awesome, of course!) but now they also have a wonderful variety of Thin Cuts Dies that are meant to stand alone.  Check out this short video to learn more.

Witch Shoe Treat Holder


Looking for a super cute Halloween candy treat holder?  Look no further than this fun Witch Shoe!

We made this at my monthly Technique Time Class earlier this week–it was a winner! =)

Jeepers Creepers Paper Pack

Combining the simply adorable Jeepers Creepers Paper Pack with any Halloween project is a recipe for success!

The embossed spider web from the Silly Spider Web Stamp Set made a spooky cute addition to the witch shoe.  Then we added in a little shimmer to the web using the *NEW* Clear Shimmer Brush.

Halloween Candy Kabob

Monstrous Halloween Candy Kabob

Today’s project is a fun one–a Halloween Candy Kabob I created using small sour cream containers.  If you’d like to create your own, you only need a few simple items.

  • patterned paper
  • bamboo skewers
  • adhesive
  • hole punch
  • stamps, embellishments and ribbon of choice

First thing you’ll do is create 3 sour cream containers in the size of your choosing.  If you’ve never made a sour cream container before, they are super easy!  Here is a video I made a few years back on how to make one to help get you started.

Before you seal up the ends of your sour cream containers, you’ll want to punch a hole through the center of each (to allow you to easily slide the skewer through them.)  Once you seal one end, be sure to fill it up with candy before sealing the other side. Continue reading
