Here is a fun and easy way to Jazz up your Pop Rock Treats.
Angela Barkhouse was inspired by Beate's Pocket Card Tutorial to create this fun Pop Rock Pocket Holder. To create your pocket cut Halloween Word Pattern Paper (from Making Memories) 4 ¼” x 11”. Score at 5 ½” and 1 ¼”. Corner round all four corners of paper. Fold at the 5 1/2" score line.(Halloween words should be inside the pocket. ) Now fold down the 1 1/4" tab toward you and adhere the front of pocket to the back of pocket. Adhere ribbon to the tab (created by 1 1/4" fold). Now cut a 3 3/8" x 3 1/2" piece Halloween Dot paper from Making Memories and adhere to the front of the pocket tucking the print behind the folded tab. Adhere the tab in place.
Using the small letter set, snap the JB o7275 6 pt small letters in the outer ring of your JB 08310 Monogram Stamper. Design the message " Have A Pop Rockin’ Halloween ". Stamp on pale orange cardstock. Die cut using the Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles. Chalk edges with orange chalk. Die cut a slightly large black cardstock scallop using Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circle.
Stamp pumpkin on orange cardstock. Punch out using 1 ¼” circle punch. Ink edge with black ink. Assemble embellishments as shown in photo.To create the tag pull Angela used the Cricuit Cartridge - Tags, Bags Boxes. She cut out a circle tag from orange cardstock and a slightly smaller circle tag from the Halloween Dot Paper. (this cuts two circles that are still connected). Place the Pop Rocks Packet between the circles and attach using a nail head.

Box Cupcake (3-D) one size Crease was die cut using the GrandeMARKE Roller Die Cutting System. The die has 4 components to it. (Cupcake box bottom, an insert that holds the cupcakes in place inside the box, an acetate window for the box lid and the lid). For the Cupcake box lid cut two, place the acetate window between the two layers and adhere. To create the C-R-E-E-P-Y sentiment for the box top, Angela used the Harmony Classic Circle II Ensemble (JB-08120) block and one of the designer borders from this set with 50 pt Brayton Font Ensemble (JB-08100) to spell C-R-E-E-P-Y. She stamped it on yellow cardstock then diecut it using Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities. The purple mat was die cut out of fun foam using Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. Fun foam adds extra dimension to the project.

This is a really easy project to make with the whole family. First die cut the treat bag with AccuCut's Bag Treat Wrap (3-D) Crease Extra Long Cut Die. This die from AccuCut cuts and creases your project. Fold on crease lines. Add Orange and White Polka Dot Ribbon from Creative Impressions. Fill a poly treat bag with candy corn. Place inside the treat wrap to determine how much corn needs to be placed in your poly treat bag. Make any necessary adjustments. Fold over the top of the poly bag and staple twice to secure candy corn in the bag. Next place the corn in the bag treat wrap, ensure that it will indeed stand and staple the poly bag to the front of the treat wrap bag. Ensure that the flap from the backside of the wrap will cover your staples. Next place adhesive on the tab on the backside of the wrap and adhere to the front of the wrap. You have now assembled your bag treat wrap.
To decorate you bag treat wrap – choose a designer border from the 10 Designer Border and Centers Kit. Snap the border into your Harmony Classic Circle Stamper I. Next using Curlz 25 pt font (from Curlz Font Kit) design your desired message. Ink the image using Versamagic Tea Leaves ink and stamp on white cardstock. Die cut with a Marvy Circle Punch. Set aside. Next punch an orange piece of cardstock using the Marvy Scallop Circle Clever Lever Giga Craft Punch. Then using a Marvy Scalloped Circle Clever Lever Super Jumbo Punch die cut a yellow scallop. Dry emboss both die cuts using the Swiss Dot A2 Cuttlebug embossing folder.
To make your scalloped circles into flowers simply use scissors to cut between each scallop. Cut just far enough into the circle to make petals. Next fluff the petals of the flower and gently rub the edges of the flower with VersaMagic Red Magic Ink to highlight the edges of the flower petals. Now assemble your embellishment as shown in the picture above. Add 2 candy corn stickers to the center of your image.
To design your tag “It’s all about the candy corn”. Use the smallest harmony rectangular stamper and design your verse using the 25 pt Curlz font. Ink your stamp with Tea Leaves VersaMagic and stamp. Use the appropriate tag from the Spellbinders Double Ended Tag Trios and die cut the phrase. Mat with a scrap or orange cardstock that has been dry embossed using the A2 Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder. Add brads or Rhinestone accents.

My other circles are also punched with my nesties from Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss card stock, as well as my son's photo. Layer your circles as shown, attach to your chipboard base.

Welcome to Day 4 with Lisa Somerville. Today Lisa show's us how to design a personalized door plaque.The JustRite Stampers Font Sets and Stamper Sets make personalizing your projects a snap! I love the new Rectangular Stamper Set, it's perfect for adding your own sentiments to your projects, or personalizing projects like I've done here!
I picked up the wood plaque at my Michaels store, painted it with Gesso and let it dry. I then used my Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in Denim to add color, and let it dry. Before I stamped my image for my project, I placed my Times New Roman Font - size 25 onto my Harmony Rectangular Stamper Set. Then I inked it with Riding Hood Red using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped it on my image sheet so that I could use it for proper placement later in my project.
I stamped my image (Artistic Outpost - Route 66 Plate) in Black on vanilla card stock, let dry. I inked the sentiment I created earlier in Riding Hood Red, and using my Stamp-a-ma-Jig,
Once dry, I've created a great door plaque - perfect for gift giving!

Welcome to day 3 with Lisa Somerville. Today Lisa share's with us a great economical notecard set that you can make using the Luxe (c30 stamper) in a matter of minutes.
While searching through the dollar section at Michaels, I stumbled across some great 3" x 3" cards that also had matching A2 sized cards. For my project today I incorporated both of these items into a great Monogram Gift Set, using my C30 Stamper. (Luxe Stamper)
Because my cards were already made, the only thing I had to do was stamp my monogram, punch them out and adhere to my cards. I inked one side of my Stamp Pad with Chocolate Chip ink, inserted my letter of choice and Damask border and stamped my letters on Baja Breeze card stock, punched them out with the 1-1/4" circle punch, and layered them on a 1-3/8" Chocolate Chip punched circle, then onto my 3" x 3" cards. The C30 Monogram Stamper works perfectly with these circle punches, and makes personalizing gift sets a breeze!
The card you see on the front of my box was cut from the A2 card, and layered onto my box, before I assembled it. I also punched the holes for my Shaker Book Knob before assembling (trust me, it's easier to do that before you sticky strip your box).

Welcome to Day 2 with guest blogger Lisa Somerville. Lisa has designed this great Home Decor Project just in time for the Holidays. This would be a great teacher or secret Santa gift and is a fabulous way to use your scraps.
I found these 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" blocks at my Michael's store - they are relatively inexpensive, about $1 per block. I cut my Ski Slope DSP to fit my blocks, then stamped my letters with my Pre-Inked Uppercase Typewriter Letters, these pre-inked letters made stamping a breeze - I just centered them on my cut paper and pressed down. I edged my papers with brown ink and a sponge dauber and used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to attach my patterned paper to my wood blocks, sanding where needed once dry. I tied on various ribbons and used glue dots to attach some Making Memories Charms, Poinsettia's, and Felt Flurries (with Rhinestone centers) to my ribbons.

Welcome to Day One with Lisa Somerville. Today Lisa has designed a monogrammed bracelet and matching jewelry box. This would be a perfect Chiristmas Gift.
While I was at CHA this summer, I stopped by the Amate Studios Booth to do a Make and Take, they have great jewelry pieces you can alter with stamped images or your Melting Pot. I was also lucky enough to receive a blank piece for altering at home, and the JustRite Monograms are perfect for these pieces. I stamped my Flourish image in pink on vanilla card stock, then used my Luxe Stamper to stamp my "K" monogram in brown ink. I placed a dot of Ranger Glossy accents in the bottom of the jewelry piece to hold my card stock in place, then poured in some UTEE that I melted in my Melting Pot. Then left it to dry.
To create my monogram, I stamped my Flourish in pink on vanilla card stock, then used my Deluxe Inking Stamper to stamp my "K" in brown ink. I cut my piece to size, edged my card stock with a sponge dauber and brown ink, and placed it inside the shadow box lid. Now I've got a great gift - perfect for one of my nieces for Christmas!
I found my wooden box at my local Michael's store - it's neat - as the lid is a shadow box. To alter my box, I first painted it with Gesso, then let dry. Then I used my Radiant Rain Dauber in Pink Azalea to add color to my box. Once dry I stamped my Flourish images in brown, and edged my box with a sponge dauber and brown ink.
