Treat Yourself for Halloween

Boo!  It’s Halloween in the United States!  I know this holiday isn’t celebrated all over the world, but today is Halloween all day long here.  I’ve never been a fan of the macabre side of the day – I don’t like to scare people, and I don’t like to be scared (please don’t get any ideas).  I do, though, enjoy the creative, cute and light side of the day.

Today I’m sharing a couple of fun Halloween projects, but FIRST I must share a couple of promotions that end today – I don’t want you to wake up tomorrow morning and regret passing up these offers.  I’m also giving you a heads-up about tomorrow’s exciting news.

Don’t Miss Out – These Promotions End Today

There are two great Stampin’ Up! promotions that end today – October 31.  If you love either of deals as much as I do, TODAY is the day to take action.

Designer Series Paper Sale (ends today) all love Designer Series Papers – the patterns, the colors, the super-fun images.  The opportunity to collect these papers at a savings is a reason to stand up and cheer.  Stampin’ Up! has offered Buy 3, Get 1 Free sales on Designer Series Papers over the past several years – they are always popular with my customers.  These are some of my favorite papers – and I’ll certainly be stocking up.  🙂

Here are the papers that are part of the Buy 3, Get 1 Free Promotion (you can click on the photos below to see these papers in my online store):

Merry Patterns (ends today)

In September and October, Stampin’ Up! has offered an exclusive stamp set – Merry Patterns – for individual orders over $300.  This is such a great set that would be a perfect addition to any stamp collection.  Here’s a look at the images in this one-time-only set that will not be offered after today (you can click on the image below for a closer look at the set in my online store):  Merry Patterns, Stampin' Up!You can earn this set by bumping up your Holiday Catalog order to $300 OR combining your order with a friend’s order to get to $300.  You could buy a boatload of paper with the Designer Series Paper promotion above – and earn this set at the same time (along with Host Rewards).  How helpful am I?!  Here’s a video to show you some great samples and great benefits of this amazing set:

Again, today is the last day to earn this fun set!  You want it, so let’s make this happen.  <3

Witch Hat Treat Holders

Now that you are up-to-date on the big promotions that end today, I want to share with you some treat holders I made for my coworkers.  When I sat down to make 30 of these on Sunday, I didn’t adequately budget my time.  While each one was easy, there was a lot of cutting, scoring and gluing to make all of these.  I still had a lot of fun making them, and I know my coworkers will enjoy them.  You know I love a good “infinity shot,” so here goes:

Witch Hat Treat Holders, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingMy project is a direct copy (not even an “inspired by CASE”) of a project shared by Julie DiMatteo that was inspired by Julie Davidson.  The candy goes right in the top of the hat – quite amazing!  If you want to whip up some of the witch hats for yourself, CLICK HERE.

Stampin’ Blends are on their Way

When you wake up tomorrow, Stampin’ Blends will be available to customers.  I’ve been sharing how much I love these new alcohol makers for weeks and will have lots more to share tomorrow!

Halloween Parade

No holiday is complete without a parade.  Here’s my parade of Halloween cards from this year – you can click on each of the images to see the original post about each one.  Enjoy!

PLACING AN ORDER?  Certainly you’ll be taking advantage of these super-fun deals, right?  I’d love for you to place an order more than $150 so you can earn Host Rewards (including the price-reduced Hostess Stamp Sets).  If your order is less than $150, though, I would love for you to add a Host Code – G44EWPPZ.  Just enter the code when the system asks if you have a Hostess Code.  The Host Code is always available in the right column of my blog (just under my super-handsome picture).  <3

Thanks for stopping by today!
