Planning A Halloween Party...Check Out This Fun Idea On Labeling The Food Items!

I thought today I'd share a cute idea that the CTMH's Art Department made. It would be fun if you are planning a Halloween party...you could use the pumpkin to "label" the food items or put a funny face on the pumpkin...


...and you could use the idea again in November... if you are planning to have Thanksgiving dinner at your home. This is one of the reasons I love CTMH's products...there are just so many great projects you can make to jazz up a party!

Planning A Halloween Party? Need A Few Ideas? Center Piece, Banner, and Party Favors!

I thought today I'd share a few cute projects using the "Scaredy Cat" paper pack (X7185B) that the CTMH's Art Department made. The pencils are a great idea if you want to make something for your children to take in to school. These days the schools don't want parents to bring in food snacks (candy or cupcakes)...so these are great. And, I just love the cute Halloween hat too! It would make a great center piece if you are planning a Halloween party!

Scaredy Cat ~ Halloween Or Fall Projects ~ Scrapbooking, Cards, Tags, And More!

I thought I would share the paper pack "Scaredy Cat" (X7185B) with you today. It's great for Halloween projects or fall projects (since most of the paper pack has neutral designs...not theme specific).   

 

If your not really into stamping you can buy the paper pack (X7185B), Scaredy Cat Complements (X7185C) and/or Scaredy Cat Assortment (Z3011) and make your own designs up. Or, try out one of the How-To Publications: "Make It From The Heart, vol. 1" (9035), "Make It From The Heart, vol. 2" (9042), "Reflections" (9037), "Cherish" (9038), "Imagine" (9039), "Magic" (9040), "Wishes" (9041) or "Originals" (9036) to get ideas. 

And, if you are into stamping...we have a few sets that go great with this paper (there are others that go too if these don't work for you, just check out the catalog)..."Halloween Greetings" (D1605), "Trick or Treat Sweets" (B1460), "Frightfully Fun" (B1453), "Eek & Shriek" (B1429), and "Creepy Creatures" (C1522). 

No matter which way you want to go...you're going to want to order this paper. So, check it out and get to work!
