Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spooky Cat stamp set #144749, Cat Punch #144666, Spooky Night DSP #144610, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to, Joyce Whitman


This weeks project is perfect if you need a quick little treat for someone.  I used the Carmel Apple Pops for inside of them.  All of my attendees at my Stamp Camp classes this week received these. A couple of my ladies loved the black cat so much they ordered it right away.  Guess what? You can get the stamp set and punch as a bundle and save 10%!

To make this project you will need the following products:

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut at 2" x 2 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Spooky Night Designers Series Paper #144610

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 6 1/4" score at 3" and 3 1/4"

Fold and burnish (go over your score lines with a bone folder) your score lines, but be gentle as this is designer series paper, so it is a little thinner than our normal cardstock.  For the hold for the stick of the candy, I used our 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch.  I centered it between the two score lines.   

The sentiment is stamped with Tangerine Tango in and punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  I used snail adhesive to put on the cat and the sentiment.  I then put 3 glue dots on the top edge of the paper, put the candy inside and adhered the two ends together.

I made 15 of them in about 15-20 minutes.  These are very easy and fast to make if you need a lot of them.  



On Wednesday night Mr. Wonderful and I took out the old countertops and sink.  We weren't sure how long this would take or how hard it will be as we have never done anything like this before. Oh my goodness!! I don't know how my countertops stayed on!  My island was only attached with two screws, the section with the sink, two screws, but the little piece between my stove and refrigerator, it had 3 screws.  It was a lot easier than we thought it would be.  

What a crazy busy day we had yesterday though.  Early in the morning, I was hoping to sleep in, we had the plumber here to do some work for us in our upstairs bathroom.  Then about an hour later we had the carpet guy here to measure our upstairs as we are replacing all of the carpet on that level.  When that is finished we are done with the upstairs! Yay!!!

As soon as he leaves, we run out to get some lunch and just as we get our food, we get a phone call that the installers for our countertops are on their way. So much for lunch. It didn't take them too long to install them.  I love them!!!!

We had about an hour break and then plumber came to hook everything up.  It seemed like he took forever, even though I know he didn't.  I wanted to get in there and clean up my kitchen and get everything put back where it belonged.  Here are some pictures of our adventure.

The picture on the left is from yesterday morning, before they got here and the one on the right is with the new countertops in.  They are so pretty.  I had to wait 4 hours before I could put anything on them and make sure I washed them down a couple of times to get all the dust off of them.  

Here are the final pictures of my new kitchen.  



I am so happy the way it all turned out.  I just want to stay in my kitchen!  

I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!
