Give me something good to eat

Wow, it's been awhile since my last post. I've been busy cutting kits for all the make & takes that we've been doing. In the midst of all that, I made this shaker box using the Sizzix XL die called ornate box.I had a really hard time finding Halloween paper in August so I made my own using Hero Arts dot cling stamp which is one of my favorites. All the stamps used are Dandelion Designs. The glittered candy corn is a new Sizzix die that was just released and these were extras from cutting kits.
This past Saturday we did 2 make & takes and the first one was for Ben Franklin Crafts Pearl City's paper party. We made a candy holder using the scoreboard cupcake holder die and a new tombstone die that was also just released. And I can't believe that I forgot to bring the die so the ladies could cut out the letters.
The 2nd make & take was at J's. We made a Halloween scrapbook using a new die called fanciful album. The cover is actually black fabric and if you look closely, you can see the design on the material. We also used a new embossing folder with spiders.
It really added to the background. We used chunky white glitter on the candy corns which gave it a different look instead of using 3 different colors of glitter.
Still cutting kits for this weekend's make & takes. Thanks for hanging in there while reading this long post. Have a great week and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again this weekend!
