Halloween Treat Bags

This year for Halloween I really wanted to use my cricut and create something fun for my daughter's treat bags using mini monsters, however after giving my daughter the book and letting her pick out two monsters (she picked out at least ten), I realized I needed to par down my ambitions and do something easier. As you can see from the photo we chose a few different things to cut and I love how they came out. Ava signed a few of them but realized that signing her name on 31 of them was going to be a little too hard, (she is 4). Luckily, I have a stamp that says "made by Ava" so I stamped that on the back of them. Technically she filled the bags and I just made the tags:-).

My Little Crafter

My daughter has been getting more and more into crafting as she gets older. It remains to be seen if she will be into like I am but I do love the times she wants to do a project with me or on her own. The other day we went to Joann's (so I could use my 50% off coupon of course!) and she saw this cute sunflower that she could paint herself and she had to have it! At one point she almost picked out a smaller one with a princess and a castle on it but she decided to go with the sunflower in the end. When we got home we got out the paint, went outside, and got to painting! I was so proud of her for doing such a good job!

Throwback Thursday

Today Emma over at My Creative Time released her latest Throwback Thursday challenge. The challenge was to make a "shape" card and use some orange in the card. Since I have a special birthday coming up this weekend for a little four year old princess I thought it would be fun to use my newest cart, Disney Happily Ever After, and create a real princess birthday card using my gypsy. Hope you like it!

Minnie Mouse Halloween

Today I finished a layout I had been thinking about for a while and finally cut out. I designed this all on my gypsy and got the idea from this months Creating Keepsakes magazine. I love how it came out so I thought I would post. I cut the scalloped border from Plantin Schoolbook, the Minnie Mouse and the Minnie Mouse wording from Mickey and Friends and the Halloween and the Mickey frame from Mickey font. I also searched high and low for some ed and white polka dot paper, after finally giving up on finding some I created my own! (how creative of me right?LOL!) I have an old SU polka dot stamp that worked well to create the dots on my red paper.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Stampin UP! Polk Dot (retired)
Ink: Stampin UP! White Craft
Paper: Stampin UP! Basic Black, Whisper White, Green Galore (retired), Sahara Sand, the red, cream and the pink are out of my scraps
