    Spooky Hot Chocolate Peeps Ohhh, I sure hope that you guys like this one… It is my turn this week for 3D Thursday. I do feel that I need to share a story first. Why??? Because I think it will help you to understand why I wanted to make this. Here goes… I remember as a kid my mom making a HUGE pot of Chili on Halloween. Keep in mind that I am the oldest of six kids. We would go trick or treating with friends. Yes, as a the oldest I would have to watch over some of the younger ones. Anyway, I remember stopping back at home to…

    Spooky Wonderfully Wicked Tombstone Treats

    Would you think to use vellum to add some SPOOKY?? I almost did not. GASP, right? The Tombstone “wrapper” is all vellum 1 1/2″ x 7″, with a 3/4″ x 6 1/4″ of Basic Grey and some scrap Whisper White. Tombstone wrapper starts with the Everyday Label punch (144668). First score your vellum 3 1/4″ from both ends. Then from left to right… first, slip your end section through just far enough to carefully pull out just the scored end. After pulling that end out, join the pieces/ends together. Pulling the scored end out just far enough to punch off “the end” for the “Tombstone” look. You could also do…
