My Stampin' Up! Classes

The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop starts today with Toxic Treats


I'm so excited to kick off 13 fabulously freaky weeks of Halloween fun with The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop today.


My kids actually came up with the name. They love this Snoopy cartoon!

Each week, add your Halloween creation to my blog hop, along with the code near the bottom of each post. When you add the code to your blog while you are in the edit HTML mode, your readers can play along, leave comments, and view the samples right from YOUR blog!

At the end of 13 weeks, I'll be giving one person a $50 Stampin' Up! gift certificate! The more times you enter the blog hop, the better your chances of taking home the Grand Prize. You also get a ticket just for displaying The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop badge on your blog. Whoo hoo!


I used the Petite Purse die for the Big Shot to make this party favor out of Howlstooth and Scaringbone dsp. I cut off the top flap, and the rounded sides at the top. Then I added a Trick or Treat banner from Toxic Treats, a stamp set I earned for FREE as an award for my sales this past year. I stamped the main image in Jet Black StazOn and die-cut it using the Labels Framelits, cutting a layer out of Basic Black card stock. There are a couple of Basic Glimmer Brads on the box too. You've got to have a little bling!


I'm submitting my party favor to Hand Stamped Sentiments for their Anything BUT a Card Challenge #129. You have until noon (CST) Monday to add your project.
Now it's your turn! Each week's blog hop will end on Tuesday at 1 p.m. (PST).

These are so awesome! My clients had no interest in Halloween or I would have done this. If you do it again next year, I'll do it just for myself :)
