The spiders and witch hats are made using punches. The spiders are so easy my 5 year old and neighbor girl made some the other day. Here is a picture of what my son made ( I laugh at the eye placement).
Besides halloween type crafts I also wanted to make a fall card. This card uses the Loads of Love stamp set. I cased the layout from www.renaestamps.blogspot.com/ on her 5/28/09 Scenes from a Garden gift set.
I love the versatility of this set and the Loads of Love accessories. It covers pretty much every holiday and it is so much fun to use the people in the truck.
http://www.stampinbythesea.com/ (her 10/15/08 posting). I think these two have so much character.
The other project is another treat holder. I got the idea from http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1059608?&cat=14761. I cased it almost exaclty except for I textured the paper and added a scallop punch. It was super easy to make (which is great when you are making seveal gifts for people.) I am very excited to have our workshop.

I may even try to make a small chalk board with the chef for my kitchen (so I can let my family know what we're having (or not having) for dinner. Thanks for looking.

For this box I used Real Red and Whisper white cards stock. The ink was real red and craft white.
It doesn't show up very well but I added some sparkle with dazzeling diamonds glitter to Santa's hat and coat.

The tiles below are using the Embrace Life stamp set. It is one of my favorites. It is a good thing I have purchased more stamp sets or this stamp set would be used at every craft workshop.
For the Embrace Life I used Perfect Plum and Orchid Opulence craft ink. I also used black craft ink. This one makes a great present especially if you don't know the colors of someone's house decor.
I have seen these next tiles on various websites, particularly http://www.stampinbythesea.com/ (I think in May 2009). Again I used craft ink, sponge daubers, and the Kind Thoughts Stencil sold by Stampin Up.
An inspired by nature tile:

My good friend Jodi purchased this stamp set for me to borrow. It is one of my favorite Christmas sets. Thanks Jodi I love it!!!!! Maybe someday I will return it to her. It puts me in the mood for Christmas. By the way there are about 12 weeks to Christmas. Maybe I should stop making samples and get to making some of my Christmas presents. I think I will make a set using the snowman next.
I am also working on some new projects inlcuding some Christmas projects for our craft night. It should be a lot of fun. TFL
