Howl-o-Ween Gift Bag Treats — Monday Montage #53

Monday Montage Banner -- October

We have another Monday Montage Blog Hop for you this evening!  There are ten of us stampers who love to share our creations, and all you have to do to follow along is to click on the links at the bottom of each post.

I’m trying to get ahead of the game a little bit when it comes to Halloween, so I made some cute little treat bags with the Gift Bag Punch Board, the Happy Haunting dsp, and the Howl-o-Ween Treat stamp set and coordinating framelits.

Howl-o-ween Treat Punch Board BagsI tucked some candy in each bag and tied them up with some Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon.  Maybe I’ll be less tempted to raid the candy in them before Halloween since they’re tied up with a pretty bow.  Ha!

Hat Treat Owl Treat Bag Skull Treat BagThese were super easy to make, and my daughter is excited to hand these out to friends and teachers at school.

You’re ready hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog for some crafty inspiration.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can hop over to Wendy Weixler’s awesome blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all ten blogs.

Skull and Cross Bones Boo — FMS204

Another Wednesday already!  That means it’s time for another sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week the very talented birthday girl, Jennifer Timko, is our hostess and she has a great one for us.  Be sure to pop on over to Jennifer’s website, Stampin’ on the Fly, to wish her a happy birthday (it was really yesterday, but that’s ok).  I think this one is a milestone birthday (happy 39th Jennifer!).  😉

Because I love the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set and coordinating dies so much, I had to use them again for this sketch.  The Spider Web Doilies add such a fun “wow” factor, as does the black glimmer paper, that I had to use them too.

Skull and Cross BonesI added a little black glitter on the eyes of Mr. Skeleton and a few splatters on the focal panel.  The dsp is from the Happy Haunting collection.

We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch.  You can jump over to the Freshly Made Sketches website to gain some inspiration from the design team.

Howl-o-ween Treat — FMS201

Wow!  What a great week we had celebrating our 200th sketch last week at Freshly Made Sketches!  We had such a great turnout, and it was so fun to look at all of the cards in the gallery.  I hope you enjoyed it too, and I hope you’re ready for sketch number 201.  Our so-very-talented friend from Australia, Narelle Farrugia, is our hostess this week.  Narelle is the queen of layers, so it is no surprise that there are some layers on her fun sketch:

I have another sneak peek of some new products in the Holiday Catalog, which will be released on September 1.  There were two stamp sets with coordinating dies that immediately went to the top of my wish list, and I’ve used one of them today — the Howl-o-Ween Treat stamp set and coordinating Boo to You Framelits Dies.  I love Halloween, but I’m not a fan of the scary stuff.  I like cute Halloween stuff.  And this set is perfectly cute.

Howl-o-ween TreatI’ve also used some other fun new products — the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Black Glimmer Paper, and Happy Haunting dsp.  I also used the new Basic Black Archival ink pad, which I am loving.
