Great Pumpkin Patch...

Its a Great big pumpkin patch of TREATS for my co-workers.....HA HA HA
The treat holder is in the silhouette store and I shrunk it down to 7.170"w x 10.630"h. I cut the pumpkins out of "Wausau Astrobrights" orange cardstock 65lb (250 sheets) from Office Depot. I must say I LOVE THIS CARDSTOCK!!!! I've been looking for Recollections orange cardstock at Michaels for months...and months.....and months.......and NOTHING - sold out, I gave up and went to Office Depot. The face is cut out of Recollections Black cardstock and the sentiment is out of Recollections white. I made 50 treats so I still have plenty of orange cardstock left...HA HA!! I haven't done the math to see which is a better value but this is really nice cardstock.  I then added 20 pcs of candy corn to a 3"x4" zip bag. Why only 20 pcs??? I bought 10 bags but ate 3.....HA HA HA!!!! so I had to be a little stingy....
I can NOT take credit for the "pumpkin saying" I scraplifted it somewhere.....So whoever you are THANK YOU!!!

Halloween Envelope w/ mailing address

OK OK!!! "They" were right and I was wrong.....I know everyone has been bragging about the envelope bunch board...yeah yeah...I have the MS mini score board (envelope maker on the back) and its FINE for me.  I don't..uuhh..didn't need another envelope maker. BOY! Was I wrong!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this thing!!!!! I'm an avid card maker and I always make my own envelopes. I like using the cheapy pattern paper that Michael's or Hobby Lobby have. I couldn't use a paper with a distinctive pattern(polka dots or stripes) the envelope would come out lop-sided. It drove me crazy. A few weeks ago Custom Crops was having a sale and well.....for free shipping I needed about $15 more....OK, I ordered the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. SO GLAD SO GLAD I DID!!!! Look at the envelope....ALL those dots line up perfectly even on the back. 
Its an A2 envelope.

I make mailing address labels too, usually just plain ones but I saw this label in the Silhouette store and said -HEY, that looks like an address label....HA HA HA
I assembled it (no cut) and did an offset (cut) then shrunk it down to 3.815" w x 3.040" h
HA HA HA!! isn't it CUTE!!!! this is a sample..the others I printed out had family/friends address printed.
I'm looking thru the whole Silhouette store looking for more "address labels"...

Anniversary card

Here's an Anniversary card I made for my niece. I"m embarrass to admit its all printed from the silhouette.
I've been so busy at work I'm just too tired to be creative and it doesn't help that I waited to the last minute. It came out OK...Thank Goodness....

Halloween card

These are my halloween cards, the mummy is cut from the cricut "Paperdoll dress up" at 4.25" and I chalked it with my panpastels. The background and tag and sentiment were done with the silhouette. It's not exactly how I imagined it but it still looks cute.
