~Precious Remembrance Blog Hop…Halloween Treats!~

Sunday, October 26, 2014

 Good morning, everyone!  I have a fun treat for you today!  Dyane of Precious Remembrance is hosting a bloghop full of fun Halloween treat containers!!!  And we were given a bit of a challenge in creating them in that we were to use certain images from the new Beware set.  One requirement was the beware sentiment...

 another was the Trick or Treat border…

…and 3 different circle images from the set.  #1…

…on one side of a little decorative tag…and, #2...

…on the other side of that little tag…and, #3...

…in a bottle cap for a cute embellishment for the front of my little container.

All these cute little images were adhered to rectangle of paper rolled into a tube…just a little larger than a tissue tube...that was adhered/closed at the bottom.  Some more of that confetti trim I made and used on my card on the previous post dressed up the top, and black ribbon was threaded through two holes for a little handle.  Fun, fun, FUN!!!  And I couldn't quite stop there.  My friend, Susan, found some cute test tube style containers at the dollar tree.  So I had to add one to my treat bag.  
The only problem with these little tubes…no stopper.  But a Reece Cup  with just a dab
of adhesive on each side did the trick, and another circle image with a little clear dome on top finished it off nicely...

 One more look...

Remember, the rest of the designers have treats to share also, so head to Precious Remembrance to see them all and leave them some love!!!  And by the way…the Beware set is on sale this weekend…for $12.99!!!  A bargain indeed!

Thanks for hopping in!

~Festive Friday and Precious Remembrance Halloween Fun…~

Friday, October 24, 2014

Hey, everyone!  I have a card up at Precious Remembrance using the BEWARE set.  My card features this fun embellishment made using an image from the set, a bottle cap and some homemade crepe paper trim.  Lots of fun to make!  Check it out HERE if you'd like!!!

And now for another festive card…  Festive Friday introduces a new challenge today…

And my take…something fun and whimsical…

I obviously got my inspiration from the red gift with white hearts.  I love hearts, and Christmas is as good a time as any to use them.  It's all about the love, people…all. about. the. love!  Got my Lawn Fawn friends (Winter Sparrows) out again for this one…along with my Simon Says Falling Hearts stencil and a heart from the SS set, Plenty of Hearts.  (The tiny hearts here are covered with clear glitter, although it doesn't show in my photo.)  I shortened the little branch from the WS set to make it fit the heart a little better by masking the end of it with a piece of tape before stamping...then trimming.  The holly is just a random stamp I used to add to the Christmas feel.  It was a fun card to make, I'll say that!!!  Since Mr. Simon is hosting an 'anything goes' challenge, and almost everything on this card was purchased from there...I think I'll link up! 
The inspiration from Festive Friday never disappoints…check it out!!! 
You have almost 2 weeks to come up with your own festive creation!
And I thank you very kindly for your visit!!!
