CC Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creative Charms Fall Blog Hop!

If you are hopping over from Laura’s Blog you’re in the right place.
If you are just dropping by and want to start at the beginning,
start at the Creative Charms Blog.

I have a Halloween project to share with you. I put together special gifts for my sons’ teachers and created these tubs to hold everything. Each tub holds some comfy socks, candy, popcorn and a Target Gift Card so they can pick up a scary movie if they like. I also included a treat for their puppy. I added some clear wrap, bow & a tag to package it all up.

a closeup:

Once again my fellow SVG Cuts DT member Thienly, inspired me. Check out her movie theme Halloween party here. I sized the popcorn tub down a bit to accommodate the contents.

I used Vintage Jewel Brads, Vintage Halloween Self-Adhesive Metal Frames, & Gradient Gems from Creative Charms.

I used SVG Cuts Summer Blockbuster SVG Kit to create the tub - cut on my Cricut using SCAL. Stamps are from Punkin' Patch Stamps. Papers from Midnight Spell by DCWV.

Are you ready for your Christmas Crafting? How about a giveaway? Please follow me and leave me a comment before Sunday at 6pm. Plus you’ll have a chance to win one of the random Creative Charms giveaways by leaving a comment on my blog.

This week and next Creative Charms is helping to raise breast cancer awareness. Now through October 31st all net proceeds of all sales will go to the Susan Koman Foundation in Chris Hertel's name. To help raise breast cancer awareness we are offering a pink kit in honor of Chris.

Chris was a dear friend and colleague with Creative Charms. She was our designer for the catalog and packaging. Last July Chris lost her battle with breast cancer. She left behind a loving and dedicated husband and two fabulous children along with her two dogs. Her family was her joy and inspiration. The net proceeds from all sales will go to the Susan Koman Foundation to help find a cure for this terrible disease so that no other families will lose their wives and mothers (Chris' wish).


I have chatted online with Chris but unfortunately I never got the opportunity to meet Chris in person. She lived in the next town over from me. I followed her blog and her wonderfully creative work. Thank you to Creative Charms for your generosity!

Introducing Stampables

So SVG Cuts and Punkin’ Patch Stamps are both owned by the wonderful Leo & Mary. They created the perfect combination....Stampables. You may be asked what are Stampables? Well I did a little project with stampables and here is how I did it.

Step 1 ~ I cut the candy wrappers from the latest SVG Cuts Kit ~ Party On Elm Street. I adjusted the size slightly to hold two Kit Kats instead of just one. Papers by DCWV Midnight Spell.

Step 2 ~ Got out my Trick or Treat Stamps from Punkin’ Patch Stamps and figured out which ones would fit nicely on my candy wrappers. Also got out my ink & blocks.

Step 3 ~ Imported my Free Stampable SVGs into SCAL and cut my AC Cardstock. I always cut extra - I am new to stamping and don’t have my technique perfected.

Step 4 ~ Stamped my paper.

Step 5 ~ Attached my stamped cutouts to my candy wrappers with some foam tape. And here is my final product.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sammie Could Not Resist Them!

Hey everyone - I have a fun Halloween Treat project to share with you today. I made these Halloween Crackers for son’s classmates. I was inspired by Thienly, my fellow SVG Cuts DT Member and fabulous crafter, here is her version. I made them slightly smaller to fit my candy perfectly.

I made little tags for each cracker and had a blast embellishing with Creative Charms. I used Vintage Halloween Self-Adhesive Metal Frames, Gradient Gems, Vintage Brads and Vintage Jewels to name a few.

Papers are from the DCWV Midnight Spell Stack and Stamps are from Punkin Patch Stamps ~ Trick or Treat. I created SVGs and cut on my Cricut using SCAL so the stamps fit perfect. I am new to stamping and loving it so far! Cracker file is from SVG Cuts.

My doggie Sammie, the soon to be one year old terrier mix, decided to partake on one my crackers - thank goodness I caught him before he digested any Creative Charms or Cow Tales (that is the candy inside). I do however have to make just one more before the Halloween party. Hope the kiddos like them as much as my four legged son did!

Thanks for stopping by today --- Please stop on over to my very talented friend Mel’s Blog In Love With A Bug - she is having a Creative Charms Giveaway today that you don't want to miss!

Happy Craftin'!
