Halloween Treat Bags

I just have a quick project to share with you today. I wanted to make up a few Halloween treat bags. I had these black lunch style bags from my blogging friend Maria of Crafty Cre8tions that I wanted to use.

Since I only had a little bit of time, I wanted to try to put together something relatively quick. I had these cute clip art images from Dover Publications that I printed out. (You can sign up on their blog for free, weekly samples.) I also used some doilies, embellies, and papers scraps that I had laying around my craft room. I added a Vintage Halloween Label from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff. With the shading on the image, it was a snap to color these and cut them out using Nesties.

Don’t forget you still have time to enter the Halloween challenge at Sentimental Sundays.

Thank you stopping by! Have a great day!


  • Images: Vintage Halloween Clip Art from Dover Publications, Vintage Halloween Labels by Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff on Mygrafico
  • Papers: Echo Park Apothecary Emporium, Georgia Pacific CS
  • Inks: Distress Inks in Antique Linen & Tea Dye
  • Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic markers
  • Embellishments: misc. doilies, twine, buttons, brads, plastic spiders etc.



Fabulous treat bags Cheryl, I like these images you have used and the doliy tops.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
