I made this the other day, filled it with candy corn and peanuts. I used the Close to my Heart Cricut Cartridge and cut out vinyl and stuck it to this jar! Fast and easy. I am really loving cutting vinyl with my Cricut.

It's almost Halloween...do you have those goodies for those special spooks? I created these little goodies recently. I found these clear boxes in my closet, filled them with M& M's, wrapped them with discontinued Washi Tape (yea) and made little tags. How cute are they!! I used Close to my Heart's Little Monsters (C1630) & Packages, Boxes & Tags (D1664) stamp sets. Then I put those cute little bow ties on the mummy and Dracula! TOO CUTE!
So quick, get out your supplies and get them done before Saturday!

So I thought I was done with the Nebraska stamp for a while, but I had another GREAT opportunity to use it again. At least you know I am getting my $2.95 out of this stamp!! Yes, it's only $2.95 (and we also have ALL the states)
I got these die cuts for my friend who is doing the Cars theme for her unit meetings..so I thought these would be a fun little gift for her. So I added a bag topper and a little scrunchie bag filler and created this cute topper. It took me just a little time, and I love how it looks.
I used out Packages, Boxes & Tags (D1664 $17.95) stamp set with this too. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stamp set!! I didn't realize I would use it so much, but if you like to put your "stamp" on little gifts, then I HIGHLY recommend this stamp set!
Then I got out my Jennifer's Hand Alphabet (B1484 $9.95) for her name and I was done! How cute is this. I can see doing this for teachers gifts, co-workers..etc
And since I had my team member Jen deliver this gift to my friend (in Denver) I thought I would make her a little something too. Instead of just giving a bag of M & M's, I added a little bit of packaging and a tag (again from the Packages, Boxes & Tags stamp set) and a little personal thanks!
So make sure when you are giving gifts, to add a little stamping to them!

I have created a travel journal for our trips this year. There are so many details that I forget, so I thought I should write it down as it is happening, so when it is time to scrapbook, I can go back to my travel journal and get all the specifics. There are so many little details that would have been forgotten if it wasn't for this journal. Now I didn't want to spend a lot of time decorating it etc. So I just stamped the title on the first sheet with a few other stamps. Nothing fancy.
Then at the start of each trip, I do another quick and easy title page. This one is for our recent Colorado trip. I even used Close to my Heart's new state stamps. I WANT THEM ALL! lol So I am slowly gathering them all as I visit them. So this isn't the best page to show you, I didn't realize that Colorado was such a rectangle...LOL but it was where I visited last.
Here is another picture of that page with our new Mini Stamp Organizer (Z3106 $12.95) perfect for all these state stamps! And all of our M size stamps. YEA!! Our little stamps are M size and are all $2.95. We even have monogram stamps this size too! See below.
Here is my Hawaii cover page...again...simple and I made it before we had these stamps, so I just added it to the top.
Here is the monogram stamp. These are 1 1/4" and are perfect for designing monogram cards for you or friends. All these stamps are just $2.95! How fun!
Time to start your collection of state stamps! Call me for details or check out my website at gottastamp.ctmh.com

I created these cute witches brooms using a tootsie pop and some extra cardstock! They are a little labor intensive, but they were so fun. I got the idea at convention, and recreated it.
So take a tootsie pop and I sponged the stick with a brown stamp pad. Then I took a 2 1/2 x 12 piece of Kraft cardstock and cut ever 1/4 of a inch. Make sure you leave about 1/2 of an inch at the top where you don't cut so it stays together. Then just wrap it around the tootsie pop and attached a tag.
I used Pumpkin Chevron Stamp Set (B1488 $9.95) for the tag. Tie it on with some coordinating ribbon. I used our Thistle Extra Thick Twine Z3040 $3.95.
It is time to start creating your Halloween decorations and treat!
