Notice that most were made using the Big Shot and the Top Note die. The BINGO card was one of our make n takes during the weekend, we used it on Saturday night to play Bingo for some great prizes.
This little gift card holder was made by one of the ladies I met at the weekend. Isn't it just too cute, It's a Jiffy pop popcorn maker that they turned into a snowman....the hat folds back to put in a gift card in it....could be for best buy for a movie, or movie tickets...what a great idea.
The directions for these great cards came from Lynn Pratt and she has some awesome instructions on her blog Stampndesign.blogspot.com.
Miss Chris Kolly created a little box to keep the birdies in, we added a sentiment from the All Holidays stamp set (itme 114916) and tied it all up with 1 1/4 Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.
Stop by tomorrow for more of our Get A Way Projects. Call me at 248-391-5978 if you would like to host a workshop to learn how to make projects just like this.

Rhonda and her assistant Melissa did an excellent job in coordinating 60 ladies including great meals, lots of games, make and takes, classes and plenty of laughter, Oh did I mention the chocolate yum!!!. Friday night they had a Halloween costume contest with lots of ladies dressing up in their favorite attire, Rhonda dressed up as a white lamb..
..I think it was a lamb LOL there were Red Hat witches, a baby, a great cow and the winner was a scarecrow. I will be sharing with you some of the great projects that we completed while there.
As a surprise for Nancy and I, Chris made us little gifts, to get the weekend of projects off to a great start. She used the Totally Tess stamp set to create a calendar and a new little box pattern to house 3 wonderful chocolate yummies....I had to take the picture before they were gone LOL
Stop by tomorrow to see some new pictures of projects that were made over the weekend.

The leaves are cut using the XL Two Step Bird punch (item 117191) from Cajun Craze, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I then ran it through the Big Shot (BS) using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (item 119976) and it really gives it an Inlaid look. The base of the card is More Mustard with a layer of Whisper White. I used the BS Movers & Shapers Curley Label die and the Curley label punch to set off the sentiment from Tenny Tiny Wishes (item 115370).
Here is a close up of the Inlaid portion of the card....You can do this technique with almost any shape such as hearts, stars or little flowers....give it a try and share your creations with me.
This little treat box has been making the rounds on the internet blogs and I knew I had to make some of these for my friends. It's a really quick and simple project to make I started with a basic mini pizza box 3 1/2" X 6 1/2" scored at 1/2", 3", 3 1/2" and 6" along the longest side and 1/2" and 3" along the short side. make your box and decorate as desired. For mine I used a Big Shot pumpkin sizzlits die (makes for a really quick project) decorated the top with designer paper and google eyes. On the inside I added the following poem that I printed on the computer...
"I started to carve a pumpkin with my carving knife and scoop. But the pumpkin got so scared, He took a little poop.
It looked so cute and funny-just like a candy treat. So I'm sharing it with you now, because you are so sweet."
I put a little pumpkin pie cardstock behind the poem to help it stand out and filled it with candy corn I found at Walgreens. I wanted the kind that was already prepackaged in small batches. Easy peasy!!
Hope you enjoy!!

This is my first attempt at a Flip Tag card. I saw this first done by Phyllis Strickland and decided I had to try my hand at it....and since it's close to Halloween I wanted to use that as my theme. I did use retired Designer paper but all of the stamp sets are current :o)
I used Dark & Dreary (item 121151 $14.95 for the clear set) and Batty for you (item 116576 $23.95 wood mounted)
The happy halloween on the front was stamped in black craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The moon is punched out of Daffodil Delight and I cut out the raven and attached to the moon. The pull tab is out of pumpkin spice....I really like how this turned out and now that I think I understand the mechanics (LOL) you might just see a few more of these in the months to come.
This is the card opened up so you can see the hidden panels.

The "happy halloween" comes from the House of Haunts in the main catalog item number 111574. Isn't the ghost just too cute, well that is actually an owl turned upside down using the Two Step Owl punch....using the large Bitty Bat punch makes putting these cards together a snap.

This is a card my friend and Upline Chris Kolly created for the Halloween season. She used Pumpkin pie card stock for the base and Whisper white cardstock using the spider web textured impressions embossing folder covered in glitter (love it) To create the little witch the new Two Step Owl punch (118074) was used the bats are also a new punch this year called the Bitty Bat (119279). The ribbon is one of the in colors for 2010 called pear pizzazz and the sentiment comes from the House of Haunts stamp set (111574)
Check back tomorrow for another little Halloween trick or treat....

For this project I used basic black card stock for the base of this little pocket sanitizer, as well as for the 1/4 grosgrain ribbon. The top is real red card stock embossed using the Spider Web textured impressions folder (120889) and then covered in dazzling diamonds glitter (102023). I love glitter on just about everything LOL!! I cut out the little spider from the Dark & Dreary stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog as the final spooky touch.
Here is the inside of this little project
The inside has the Happy Halloween stamp from the Dark & Dreary set (120837) This is a great set to use for your Halloween projects. The hand sanitizers came from bath and body works in various "flavors" ...This will also make for a cute Thanksgiving or Christmas gift, just change out the colors and the stamp sets and viola it changes for the season's.
