Halloween Lunchbox Notes

These cute lunchbox notes were running around in my head, distracting me from other work. I had to make them to move on. Of course, my offspring are past lunchbox notes, and I am not sure what I am going to do with these!

The little 2 x 2 inch scenes were on one sheet of Doodlebug Designs Brews and Boos paper. The finished cards are 3 x 3 inches square, and I even had the perfect size envelopes in my stash. (They do not meet minimum size requirements for the United States Postal Service.)

Supplies: paper – Doodlebug Designs Brews and Boos, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Pie, Taylored Expressions Grape Jelly.

Happy Halloween Note Card

doodlebug-te-halloween-note

Just received this CUTE Jack-o-Lantern tag die as a “gift with purchase” from Taylored Expressions. I had to use it immediately!

I die cut a smaller circle of black to back the tag – so the eyes, nose, mouth would be consistently colored.

I am thinking Offspring3 will snag this one quickly!  😉

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, paper – Doodlebug Designs (boos & brews), Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop-Tone Grape Jelly, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Only Orange (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders (circle), Taylored Expressions (Jack-o-Lantern tag), brad – source unknown.


Penguin Halloween Card

So, October has rolled in…

One might ask, “Do penguins really celebrate Halloween?” According to Offspring1, not only do penguins celebrate Halloween, they also get into heated arguments outside of the dorm very late at night. Heated enough that one can hear it, say, on the fifth floor of the dorm.

I thought I would throw this in a Halloween care package for Offspring1. Maybe some candy, maybe some M&M cookies.

Love the glitter chevron paper by Recollections (found at Michael’s)…the glitter is not flaking off, it is not overly heavy (some glitter paper is more glitter cardboard).

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Basic Grey Eerie Dracula, Papertrey Ink White, Recollections glitter chevrons, Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Pie, Wisteria Wonder, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, Stampin’ Up!, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
