Let's face it... no one gets excited over one pixy stix. However, if you turn it into a witch broom with a diamond bat, it suddenly becomes something to get excited about! :)

I decided I need to use my Tee Hee Hee stamp set before Halloween comes and goes. It's one of those sets I thought I had to have and now I just can't figure out how to use it. :(

I saw projects made with these mouse traps last year, but didn't get a chance to make one. They're kinda gross, in a fun sort of way. :) I have a package of Reese's Pieces tied to the bottom of mine. A little gross and a little sweet make for a great Halloween treat.

Guess what I used to make this cauldron? The labels collection framelits. Fun huh?! A little snip off the top and bottom and it's a cauldron. Who knew? :) The green drippy stuff is made with a Martha Stewart punch and the little greeting is from the tee-hee-hee stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! holiday catalog.

I knew I had to have the Merry Everything stamp set, specifically for this stamp. Imagine how excited I was when I found this gross, but oh so cute treat, at the dollar store! :) They are perfect together!!

Instead of indivually wrapping each Hershey Miniature, I wrappped several of them and tucked them into the bottom half of the matchbox die. The trick or treat stamp is one of my favorites. I think the glimmer paper and ribbon give it a bit of glamour. :)

Here is another treat box made with the top half of the Stampin' Up! Hamburger box die. I knew I wanted to make another one specifically for Halloween, so here it is. I can't wait to fill it with Halloween treats!

This is what you get when you use green and black paper and turn the Sizzix food jar die upside down, a bewildered Frankie :) Because of my obsession with Halloween, I usually imagine everything as a Halloween project. I'm so excited to start making Halloween things!!!

It's back to school time, so I created a quick and simple matching pen and notepad. I used a small package of sticky notes and made a cover with the scalloped tag topper punch. The hardest part of this project was putting a rolled piece of paper into the pen.

I found a package of gummy candy, shaped like fries and hamburgers, at the grocery store. My original thought was to use them with the hamburger or fry box dies. Then I noticed it had a gummy pizza, so I used that instead. :) It fit perfectly in my Sizzix shaker box die. Cute huh?! Of course a pizza needs a pizza cutter. I used a circle punch and word window punch for part of the cutter. The black handle is a random piece of paper I cut to size.

This sweet little candy box is made using the largest flower in the floral frames collection framelits. It holds 3 Hershey Miniatures perfectly. I found the instructions on karteundkunst.blogspot.com. I believe it's written in German, but she has pictures, which are easy to follow. You'll find it in her November 2013 archives. Thanks for sharing Sabine.

I prefer to make 3d projects, but you always need cards. So for this card, I punched out a circle and held it in the middle of the card while I sponged around it with orange ink. I used the banners framelits, perfect pennants stamp set, petite petals punch, petite petal stamp set and the envelope punch board to make the matching envelope.

Becky Roberts showed these cute little key ring notepads on her blog. I liked the idea and wanted to try my own. It's made with the scalloped tag topper punch and lined notecards, which are found with the school supplies. I used the hearts framelits to cut the heart in the center of the cover. The binder ring is wrapped with ribbon.
