"Boo-tiful" Halloween Bags - September Paper Pumpkin

I'm loving the September Paper Pumpkin kit! If you're not aware of this subscription kit, it is a fabulous way to fit crafting into a busy schedule, with all the materials provided, pre-measured, and pre-cut. And clearly, the ideas and results are ADORABLE!!

This month was the perfect way to get excited about Halloween, with fun black, orange, and purple diecut cards, professional looking Halloween press-on shapes, orange sequin string, a full Halloween stamp kit with little stamp pad, and patterned burlap bags to fill with treats! I'm now in full-blown Halloween mode and can't wait to distribute my treats!! 

Don't worry, you can still sign up for this month's Boo-tiful Halloween Bag kit from Paper Pumpkin by clicking HERE!

Super Hero Stamps

If you have a son anywhere between the ages of 3 and ... well ... any age (!!), then you are probably having fun with super heros. With two little boys in my house, some days that's all it seems we play! Check out this photopolymer stamp set (Calling all Heroes) just for super hero fans!! 

Use the alphabet to stamp a custom POW!, ZAP!, or whatever super-sayings you can dream up. The Word Bubbles Framelits Dies can also provide great accents for your comic-themed projects (although they don’t directly coordinate).

DIY: Painted Glass Vases

I'm loving this painted glass idea from the Stampin' Up blog! Simply mix cheap white acrylic paint with Classic Stampin’ ink, pour into the glass and turn it until the paint covers the entire inside. Then turn the glass upside down to let the extra paint drip out, and then dry completely. So easy, and aren't these vases gorgeous!?! This would be the perfect way to paint mason jars with professional looking color as well!

If you're wanting the exact colors shown below, use Melon MamboPool Party, and Summer Starfruit Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills.

Did you notice that the flower in the photo was artificial? It looks so real until you take a second look! Here are the materials you need to make that yourself:

Lucky Limeade Cardstock; First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper; Blossom Petals and 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punches; floral wire - all found HERE.
