Trick or Tweet Scrapbook Page

I have one final project for you using the Trick or Tweet stamp set.  Now that you have all your treats and hopefully you have your costumes ready it’s time to take all your photos on Halloween.  And then you’ll need to add them to a scrapbook page! 

Today’s project is the scrapbook page that I designed for my October Stamper’s Club meeting.  I used the Trick or Tweet stamp set.  This is a 12 x 12 page and has spots for 3 photos on it.  If my kids were still little I’d have a photo of each one of them in costume on this page.  I may need to go dig up some old photos instead.

One little trick on here – it looks like the back has several layers of card stock with a very tiny border.  But in reality its a line drawn with the Stampin’ Write marker.  I cut out of thin cardboard (I used the pieces that come in the back of the Designer Paper Packs) an 11-1/2″ square.  Center the square on my 12″ x 12″ piece of Whisper White card stock and trace around it with the Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Write Marker.  It gives the look of the extra layers without the added card stock.

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Whisper White 12×12 card stock
  • Card stock: Pumpkin Pie, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Whisper White, Basic Black
  • Triple Banner Punch
  • Starburst Punch
  • 2″ Circle Punch
  • Memento Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody
  • Animal Outing Designer Series Paper
  • Animal Friends Thinlits
  • Large Letter Framelits
  • Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
  • Artisan Textures stamp set
  • Gorgeous Grape ink

It’s a little hard to see but the Gorgeous Grape strip across the top of the page is stamped with the Artisan Textures stamp set.  I didn’t have any patterned paper in that color like I did for the other two strips so I thought I would stamp it instead.

If you are local to me I’m updating my class schedule for November and December.  Adding Santa’s Workshop Bingo,  Christmas Stamp a Stack classes.  Be sure to check out my schedule.

Trick or Tweet Door Hanger

Today I have a cute project for you using the Trick or Tweet stamp set.  I designed a door hanger box that you can fill with a treat and leave on a neighbors door or even on your kids bedroom doors.  This box has lots of potential for more than just Halloween.  On my At Monika’s Place Facebook Page on Monday October 22, 2018 I did a Facebook Live where I showed how to create this door hanger.  Be sure to visit my page and watch it. 

I used a piece of Basic Black card stock for the base and my trimmer to score and cut to create my box.  The piece is 8″ x 8″.  Then score on one side at 2-3/4″, 3-3/4″, 6-1/2″, and 7-1/2″.  Now turn so the large section is at the top of your trimmer and score at 1″ all the way across.  Then move to the 4-1/2″ mark and cut starting at 2-3/4″ out to the end at 8″ – don’t cut through that large section that is at the top of the trimmer.  Next trim away the rest of the piece along the 2-3/4″ score line.  You will also cut your tabs at the bottom and remove the small piece on the end.  Here is a diagram to show you (and watch my Facebook Live too).  To create a hole for the door knob use the 2-1/4″ circle punch. 

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet Stamp set
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Best Route Designer Series Paper
  • Pineapple Punch ribbon
  • Memento ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate
  • Starburst punch
  • 2-1/4″ circle punch
  • Detailed Trio punch
  • 1-3/4″ punch
  • 1/2″ circle punch
  • 1/8″ Handheld Punch
  • Tear & Tape
  • Black Baker’s Twine
  • Mini Dimensionals

I used Memento ink to stamp my image and colored it in with the Stampin’ Blends.  A little trick for the tiny pumpkin use the 1/2″ circle punch to punch it out instead of cutting.  I popped it up on a mini dimensional.  Here is a closer look. 

 

I filled my box with a peanut butter pumpkin.  If my boys were still living at home I’d hang one on each of their bedroom doors for Halloween.

Bat Brownie Treats

Someone a while back told me about Bat Brownies that they found at the store – so I wanted to find them an use them to make a treat with the Trick or Tweet stamp set and the little elephant dressed like a bat.  It took me a while to find them but I did locate them at the big W store.  And now recently I’ve seen them in several stores.  I think I was just too far ahead of Halloween to begin with. 

I basically just created a box that wrapped around the brownie.  Our Grid paper is perfect to help create a box for a treat.  Lay what you want to cover on the paper and trace around it for the height and width.  Flip it on its side to determine the depth.  Be sure you include a flap that overlaps for the adhesive to hold it together.  I normally start with scraps to do my first measurements and then adjust before cutting for my final piece.   After getting the card stock sleeve set just right, add a piece of Designer Series paper around it and then add ribbon and a tag to finish. 

Supply List

  • Trick of Tweet stamp set
  • Granny Apple Green card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Nature’s Poem Designer Series paper (I used the Blackberry Bliss pattern)
  • Memento Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Smoky Slate, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green
  • Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon
  • 2-1/4″ Circle punch
  • Grid Paper
  • Paper Trimmer

Now go find bat brownies and make your own little treats.  Enjoy!

More Trick or Tweet

Hello Stamping Friends.  I’m trying to get back on schedule now. 

My little dog Aspen was very very sick and admitted to critical care in the specialist Animal Hospital. After two visits to my regular vet I had to take him there to the ER and they admitted him to the hospital.  He was there for 4 days and I brought him home for one night and then he had new issues and I took him back to the ER and he stayed for 11 more days.  He was one sick doggie. 

But he finally turned the corner and I was able to get him last Friday – which happened to by my Fall retreat weekend.  I brought him back to the cabin and took care of him there along with all the ladies that attended the retreat.  They were a great help to me and loved on him.  Now we have been home for a few days and he continues to improve.  

So now I’m trying to finish sharing all these cute projects with the Trick or Tweet stamp set.  I will try to pick up where I left off.

Today’s project is one of our Mini Pizza Boxes.  Inside I found snacks cakes that are little pumpkin shaped cakes – I’m pretty sure they are pumpkin pie flavored.  I’m not a pumpkin fan so I didn’t eat one.  But any round fairly flat treat will fit in these food safe boxes.   

To color the box I used my Sponge Brayer – I used two colors – Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody.  I wanted kind of an ombre effect so I used the Pumpkin Pie in the center section where the box folds and used the Mango Melody on either end.  Just roll over with the sponge brayer until you achieve the darkness you desire.  I did spray the box with plain hairspray – that’s what we used as a sealer in the old days and I still had a can in my craft closet.  Then decorate the box!

Scare up a little fun

I originally planned to do a FB live today (Wednesday at 3:00 pm) but my little Aspen isn’t feeling well and I had to take him to the vet this morning.  He is still there and I’m waiting on an update so I don’t want to tie up my phone with the live today.  I am now planning to do the live on Thursday at 3:00 pm.  Catch me on my FB Business page At Monika’s Place on Thursday afternoon for a Facebook Live showing you some other cute treat ideas with this stamp set. I’m planning to go live at 3:00 pm EST.

For now here is another little project in honor of my sweet little Aspen.  I wouldn’t call it fun but he did give me a scare – I’m still waiting on some news though.

The little dog on the Trick or Tweet set is all dressed for Halloween.  I found the perfect candy at the store to match – Lemon Lime Twist, Gorgeous Grape and Pumpkin Pie.  It was the Ghoulish mix from the M&Ms.  Since we don’t have a Lemon Lime Twist Blends I did use the Granny Apple Green to color in the cape and band on the hat. 

Supply List

  • Trick or Tweet stamp set
  • Mememto Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
  • 2″ Circle punch

Here is a closer look at the little tag.
