Vampire Coffin Halloween Treat Pouch: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Today I'm very excited to share these super cute Vampire Coffin Halloween Treat Pouches, created with the Gift Envelope & Trims Thinlits Die.  
Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies135854
Price$40.50
This is the very same die that I used for the fall cutlery holder I shared on the Artisan blog hop last week.  This die is a hidden gem and can be used for SO much more than just a gift card envelope. You need to get it asap.  Check out my latest invention:
Super adorable, and inside you can fit a few small candies, a mini chocolate bar, or some fun Halloween pencils!
Want to know the best news?!  It's VERY easy to put together.  Seriously!  Watch this video to see the very simple alterations I made to this die so it can be transformed into the Vampire Coffin Treat Pouch.

Easy right?! I hope you'll be inspired to make a few for some special kiddos in your life.  To see all the supplies I used, please scroll to the bottom of this post.  

Now let's see what the amazing Barbara has created this week.  Her creations are always fab, so click on over to her blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a fabulous day!

Stampin' Up! Getaway Vacation to Washington, DC

Hi friends!  Greetings from Washington, DC!  I am having an absolutely amazing time with my friend Melody!  
This city is fabulous.  Today we walked over 15 miles….yes, miles.  Do the math.  Ouch.  To say that we were ambitious is perhaps an understatement.  But wow we saw a lot.  Check it out:
This was actually taken on the night we arrived.  We were eager to see the White House so we headed down there pretty much as soon as we were finished dinner.  I even saw Obama.
We are buds now.
Then we walked down to get a peek at the Washington Monument at night too.  So pretty.
Today we were up bright and early as we wanted to do SO many things.  First stop was some food.  Check out this amazing room Stampin' Up! has booked for our breakfasts.  Whoa!
This whole hotel is stunning actually.  Stampin' Up! spoils us.
Then we were off.  Here's our day of sightseeing in a nutshell:
Washington Monument
The Archives
Sculpture Garden 
Sculpture Garden
Natural History Museum
Elephant in the lobby of the Natural History Museum
Hope Diamond
Hey look!  This guy must be a relative of my dog Chapman.  Same amazing ears.  :)
World War II Memorial - with the Washington Monument in the background.
Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool
Inside the Lincoln Memorial
Washington Monument and Reflecting Pool
Korean War Memorial
Sunset at the Washington Monument, looking back at the Lincoln Memorial
Capitol Building
After the Capitol Building we were STARVING and went on the hunt for food, and what a hunt it was.  Let's just say that we walked a heck of a lot more.  

We are off to soak our feet.  So much more to see tomorrow.  Thanks so much to Stampin' Up!, my customers, and downline for this amazing trip!

Happy Stampin'

For All Things: Fall Table Decor - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  I've got a quick and easy project for you today, so let's jump right in!

I love decorating my table for the holidays, and I'm SO excited because this year my Dad and his wife will be joining us for Thanksgiving!  Here in Canada, Thanksgiving is only a few short weeks away, so I thought I better start designing my decor.  
These are very easy to put together.  I used the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies to make the pouch.  Here, check out this video to see how:

Super duper easy.  You can see that I just added a few simple embellishments to make it pretty.  You can find a full list of supplies I used at the bottom of this post.
All of the images and the sentiment are from the For All Things stamp set.  A newbie from the 2014 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.  I know I'll get a lot of use out of this one.  
For All Things Clear-Mount Stamp Set135155
Price$21.95
I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy little home decor project today.  Now head on over to see my friend Barbara and what she's created!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and stay tuned!  I'm headed to Washington, DC for the Stampin' Up! Getaway Trip so I'll be posting to my blog when I can!
