Pals Blog Hop: Trick or Treat!

Thank you for joining us for the Pals Halloween Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our virtual trick-or treat hop where you will either learn great tricks for your creative projects or enjoy a blog candy treat. 

You should have just left stop number 2 on the Pals Hop – Angela Curry at Kindred Stampers. If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Hello and welcome once again… today I bring you a sweet little spider that is supposed to be a black widow.  But now that I look at it… it looks like a round cockroach… I'm laughing so hard, I just spit on my screen (go ahead and laugh)… hahaha.

Either way, spider or cockroach… I hate them both.  The only cool thing with this spider is that it's a paper spider.  They are cute and not scary what so ever.  They are fun and easy to make too.

A paper snipped the legs in an L and just glued them to the back of the body.  The body was made with a 1" circle punch and for the red dot belly I used the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  Stampin' Up! punches are very versatile and have a gazzilion uses.  Is that even a word? LoL

I've Got a Treat to Give!

Pals October Blog Hop: Trick or Treat!?

Trick-or-Treat! It’s time for some fun and festive crafting with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals! You’ve probably hopped over from Shannon  Hokanson at My Stampin Blog, I’m stop number 20 on the Pals Hop and I’m glad you hopped in!  I’ll help you “hop along” from blog to blog where you’ll find great ideas for Stampin’ Up! Halloween projects along with some tricks and treats along the way! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you’ll be back on track.

Greeting Card Kids stamp set is one of my many favorites.  Why?  Because it incorporates Thanksgiving with the little girl sitting on the pumpkin, which can also be turned into an easy Harvest/Halloween card.  Can’t forget to mention Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and a cute boy and girl that remind me of our Story Time Designer Series Paper.  This stamp set makes the perfect pair with Teeny Tiny Wishes (did I mention a MUST have for every occasion?)

I’m giving away a TREAT! Lucky you!

Summer Smooches (6×12)

Comfort Cafe (6×12)
