Moving progress and Halloween treat envelopes

Hi, all  Sorry to be MIA since the last post, things has been really hectic here.  I'm in middle of packing--this picture was taken last week of its progress. Today it is almost all packing up. alot of work, hard part will be unpacking at new place. lol My sis asked me to make some treat bags for her son's school. Well, with the move, I didn't have my cartridges out. I was reading thur my blog reader list and came across Becky (Fourth House on the right). She used envelope as treat bag and just decorate the front. I thought I can do that with old halloween stash i had (they came from walmart when they sold in paper pack). Spiders came last year project that I use up here, I used scallop punch for pumpkin, and I use my new cloud punch with witch punch.  Trick n Treak stamp came from October AE club.  I put gemstone beside it. it really turn out cute and quick to make.

 I'll be back to post more ongoing progress with move and some projects I haven't posted yet.

cards i made this past few weeks...

These are thank you cards I donated for school here that has major flooding damage.  I thought they could use it to send cards for whoever help them out.  I use my red scraps for border strip.  I stamp the distress background stamp using chocale chip (SU) ink then SU tag punch and double hole for twine. and here finished cards. I really love how it turns out.

 A birthday card for year old boy...again I use my distress background stamp (i think it from Autumn leaves). then elephant I had in my stash which i'm sure it came from cricut or sizzix.  the banner flag came from cricut too. I can't remember which one.

a thank you card--use my green scrap for this card.  martha steward butterfly punch add gem stone to middle. love how it turns out. so simple and pretty.

Thank you cards to send out to guests that came to birthday party for my little boy--I had this jungle ribbon in my stash for long time.. so glad to use them .  the green card was from a invitation box that was clearance out from somewhere. lol I use leaves stamp for around the edge to make it look like jungle leaves as I didnt' have any stamp like that.  I used CTMH alpha stamps for the sentiments.  Love how it turns out it was so cute..

Another thank you card--came from my stash--this was a little bag from SU stamp camp I made at one time. I just trim it away and use it as a card. love how it turns out. so cute.

I am trying to make cards more to mail out because I have gotten so many complaints on them.  As you can see, I've been using the kraft paper as my base which really help in creating these cards so much that anything go at this time.  Thanks for looking.  I'm hoping to work on few layouts tonite and get them postings. I'm sorry for poor quality as it has been rainy here. I'm looking into purchasing better lighting when I move and better way to photograph.  I have been researching and writing down tips.  As always, Thank you for all who do leave comments, I love reading them. I'm having blogger issues in leaving comments on some of my fav blogs and new ones as well. so always know i do read your blog.
