Paper Towel or Toilet Paper Core
Hobby Blade
Designer Paper
Basic Black and Only Orange Card Stock
Adhesives Glue and Mono
1/2" Circle Punch
1/16" Hand Held Punch
Cello Bags
Grosgrain Ribbon

1. Cut Core at 2" with Hobby Blade
2. Cut Designer Paper in 2" strips the length will depend on the diameter for your core.
3. Cut 1/2" strips of Basic Black and/or Only Orange for you handle and upper rim.
4. Punch out your base with your Mega Scallop punch and then I used the Culuzzle Cutting System for the Circle. One will be Basic Black and one Only Orange. Adhere them together.

5. Now wrap your core, put adhesive of choice on the Designer Paper and position around outer core then do the same on the inner core.

6. Take one of the 1/2" strips and position it around the top of the core.
7. Take the opposite color of 1/2" strip and attach to the core. (see photo) Hold secure with a brad. Use the 1/16" hand held punch.

8. Now your ready to adhere to the base. Put glue around the bottom of the core and attache to base.
9. I cut 3/4" strips of Designer Paper and wrapped it around the Hershey's Nuggets.

I used the sheet of sayings from the Designer Paper to make tags to attach to my basket after I filled and put them in Cello Bags. There you have it!

My Daughter Meghan

This is the same day Meghan my eleven year old. She came over to have her picture taken too. Just had to add one of her. I'll post some Scrapbook pages with all the rest of the bunch soon.

My Grandson Brandon

Just had to share this one, this is Brandon, just turned three last Saturday. He has Meghan's Witches hat on and is closely watching the others putting up all the Halloween Decorations in the yard. Giving his two cents worth where it show go. I was on the porch watching and he came over to tell me all about it.

Thanks for stopping by!


This is my first attempt at one of the frames that everyone has made. I'm a little behind. This was a frame that I had on the shelf in my stamp room now it's up on the wall.

List of supplies:

Assorted Designer Papers
On Board Simon Lower Letters
Assorted Ribbon and Punches

Altered Notebook and Gift Box

This is a Target Note Book and a Michael's $1 spot wooden box. I covered the box with Soft Sky Prints Designer Series Papers and stamped on the Note Book. This is what I gave to the other Demonstrators that I went to Convention with.

List of Supplies:

Stamps: Little Pieces and In the Spotlight
Soft Sky Prints Designer Series Papers
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel and Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Assorted Ribbon, Cello Bags and Ink Pen.

Batty for YOU Basket Tutorial

1. Cut your card stock 5 x 5 inches. Score each end at 1.5 inches

2. Cut on the score lines on the two top scores and the bottom scores lines. (see photo)

3. Cut your designer paper 2 x 1.5 and adhere to each center piece.

4. I used my scallop scissors to create a scallop edge, you can use your corner rounder with the guide off.

5. If you do the scallop, trim down the inside flaps so that they don't show through when you put the box together.

6. Now put the box together.

7. Add the large eyelets on two sides of your basket with your Crop-a-dile.

8. Add ribbon or card stock for your handle, decorate to your taste.

9. Assemble your peppermint patties with the decorated Circle Scallops and add 3 to your basket.

Enjoy have a happy, fun, safe Halloween!
