Halloween Goodies!


Only one more week until chocolate, um, goodies, Halloween!!!  Now that I've officially joined the ranks of the "vintage" (I had a dreaded milestone birthday two days ago) and my kids are all grown, what I want to know is....whose trick or treat bags do I get to raid?  It's SUCH a bummer!!  Oh well!


Join me over at MFP Speedy TV this week for my Purple Passion column!  I look into ways and ideas to help you use purple (my all-time favorite color) in your projects.

A few weeks ago, I was at my sweet friend Becky's house.  We did a card-making class of sorts.  Each person there made up card kits to share with the other scrappers.  We all walked out with lots of cards made from the kits.  It was fun and such a great idea!

One of the cute things we made were these adorable treat boxes.  Becky had the box already cut out, along with the pumpkins, the vinyl for the pumpkin's faces, and the ribbons for the boxes.  I took home all the rest of the leftover kits since we're one of the few people in this area to get trick-or-treaters each year.


I decided to replace some of the green ribbon in the kit with purple ribbon, so that I could get some of my fave color in there!  I also used the adorable Mark's Finest Paper stamp set, I'm Going Batty, to stamp some of the labels on the front side of the boxes.  The little images fit perfectly on the pre-cut labels. Yay!  I love it when a plan comes together!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
