Are we really getting ready for Fall? Stampin' Friends Blog Hop

Where, Oh where did my summer go? School has started, but it's still summer people! And now we are gearing up for everything pumpkin spice! Before you know it we will be heading into the Holiday Season! Halloween, Thanksgiving Christmas, and New Year's celebrations will be here before you can say Jack O'lantern! This is really a good exercise for me because I tend to procrastinate and am always scrambling at the last minute. This year I will have Halloween done early! Well, at least planned early. So thank you for joining us on the Stampin' Friends Fall Blog Hop today. As always I know you will be inspired by the projects you see from this group of talented stampers. I hope you enjoy mine and keep on hopping! Please leave your comments along the way. It really makes us do the happy dance!
My granddaughter Cadie picked out this stamp set. She is an old cat woman at 11! She loved the Kitty and Dog in this fun Halloween stamp set. I used Basic Black, Granny Apple Green, and Whisper White cardstock. Add in a piece of the DSP and that awesome Black Foil.
 From the new Holiday Catalog-
Stamp set Treat or Tweet,
DSP Toil and Trouble,
Black Foil Sheets, Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy ribbon, Swirls and Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I used the new Granny Apple Green Blends pen in light, and the Smoky Slate Blends pens in dark and light.

For my 3-d projects, I did a quick candy bag using the 3 x 6 gusseted cello bags, tied with the 1/8" Black Cord and a 1 1/2" circle punch.

Love some candy corn! the bat and frog where cut from the Toil and Trouble DSP (Hint there is a matching stamp set and framelits!).
Cute, but want to take it up a notch or two?
I used a 6" x 11" piece of DSP and the Gift Bag punch board to make a cute little treat bag. Then created an adorable tag to tie on it using Mango Melody Cardstock, Toil and Trouble DSP, more Glittered Ribbon.  Isn't the little witch just the cutest thing. I loved her holding the frog over the cauldron. And in honor of Cadiebug there had to be a cat at her feet.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into the New Holiday Catalog coming soon. There are more Fall goodies for you to play with going soon! Please continue on to Katja Ettig's blog to see what amazing things she has created. Have a great day and be blessed and be a blessing to those around you!

Love stamping in Dixie,
