Halloween Prep - Day 1


Judging from the enormous section at Michael's and every crafty magazine out there, you'd think Halloween was tomorrow. Check out Paper Crafts magazine on sale 8/16, it's loaded with great ideas, including a card and an easy candle project using PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps from our own Kelley Eubanks!





The reality is that Halloween is more than 12 weeks away. But every crafty lady knows that your creations don't happen overnight and the really good projects take time, which is why I am dedicating a whole week to Halloween ideas in the summer! Use this week as inspiration for your September and October projects. Leave a comment any one of the days to be entered to win a PSA Haunted Shack Peel & Stick pack! Each comment is an entry to win, but please – limit to one comment per day. Now you have a chance to win and you'll have plenty of time to get your projects done!





First project for your Halloween inspiration, see these treat bags by Kelley Eubanks. She's stamped the Haunted Shack, Pumpkin and Cat from PSA Haunted Shack using Orange & Black, and Black & Orange inks. She's also stamped "Boo" from PSA Haunted Shack. Adorable & easy! Put candy inside these and pass out to trick-or-treaters. You'll be the envy of the mom's on the block for sure.







Since this project should only take you 10 minutes depending on how many you are doing, check back tomorrow for more great ideas!
