2011 Holiday Catalog and Inspiration Guide

Brown Paper Bags; Cardstock: Sleepy Hollow, Pebble, Onyx, Paprika;
Web/Swirls Impression Plate; small zig-zag border die; Stamps: Too Cute to Spook, Haunted; Onyx Glitter

I've been working on some samples using new products from the amuse | studio 2011 Holiday Catalog and Inspiration Guide. Came up with this fun treat bag using all amuse | studio products. Love the small paper bags (and they're a great deal!). So many possibilities!! I used the small zigzag border die across the top of the bag, then cut a piece of Sleepy Hollow cardstock (trust me, you NEED this!). Distressed the edges with the new Pebble pigment ink pad. Cut a circle out of Pebble cardstock (you need this, too) and ran it through my Big Shot with the new web impression plate, then sanded to bring out the white core. Adhered that onto a scalloped circle, then stamped the large spider on top. Filled in his body with a glue pen and sparkly, sparkly, onyx glitter. Topped it all off with a spooky sentiment stamped on Pumpkin cardstock scraps. Can't wait to fill this one with some treats!

Any product used in this project can be securely ordered online through my website. Follow the amuse | studio link on my sidebar. Better yet, host a qualifying workshop to earn product for free! Amuseapalooza starts on the 22nd and there are extra benefits to be earned! Book your workshop soon!

As a side note, I updated my class schedules page with class samples. Don't forget to call the store to reserve your spot! Class is Aug 27th.
