No Tricks, Just Treats!

Happy Halloween! I have several treats to share with you today! First, I have a winner from yesterday’s post where I asked you to leave a comment telling me what you would like to see under your tree this year.  I always enjoy reading everyone’s comments. The winner is…. Carmen! She said, “Anything that is a surprise”.  Well, Carmen, I have a surprise for you!  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will ship your gift to you!

Here’s a really special treat that I was the lucky recipient to receive. Liza Stucker made this Halloween sampler and I am in complete awe!  I had to display it in a place of honor as it just brings me smiles!

Here’s a close up of each of her mini works of art.

Here’s the thing….I have never met Liza and I am so humbled by her generosity.  She follows my blog and reached out for some help getting some of the products she needed to put this all together.  I never expected to be one of the recipients of this awesome creation! She truly embodies the motto, “Share Handmade Kindness”!!! I say it all the time but it is worth repeating…don’t ever underestimate what you do when you create from your heart and share! The simple joy it brings is priceless!!!

Here’s a super treat for everyone (and a great gift idea for someone on your list)…

Envelope Punch Board Projects

Yesterday I shared a fun treat holder for Lindt Chocolate balls made with the Envelope Punch Board and Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  If you missed that post you can click HERE to view.

I promised to share with you some other projects made with the Envelope Punch Board. Last week I had a class with several local gals who wanted to make “crackers”. The Envelope Punch Board is so versatile and useful for so much more than just making envelopes!  We made crackers plus 3 more fun projects…a Ghirardelli Chocolate treat holder, a Santa gift card holder, and a “Peppermint Patty” standing snowman treat.  I found so many ideas on Pinterest and just “tweaked” them to use what I had.  Here’s a few pictures from the event.

**If you purchase the Envelope Punch Board from my online store I will email you the directions to make each of these projects and send you the “kit” in the mail.

Have a wonderful day!
