Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Boo Thank You Treats

Hi Everyone!
Tomorrow I have 12 ladies coming to my house to make cards for Operation Write Home. EEK!  I have been so swamped designing, cutting and prepping everything for the event.  I knew it would be time consuming going in, but then when I actually started doing everything, I'm thinking  maybe I will prepare farther in advance next time.  Well, being gone for vacation, and then coming home sick really didn't help things either. 

Anyway, I was really glad to make these quick treat bags as favors for everyone to take home, and once again I'm using an image from my favorite Lindsay's Stamp Stuff set of the season, Vintage Halloween Labels
I stamped my glassine bag using a traditional stamp in Stazon.  My skull image was sized on the computer to fit my punch, so after copying and pasting it multiple times, I printed it out on orange paper. Hurray, no coloring required! (I CASED this idea from my teammate Cheryl...Thanks, Cheryl!)

Here they all are in the basket, ready to be taken home.
How's that for an easy peasy idea? 

I know I've shown this set before, but it deserves all the the glory...So here it is again :)


Make sure you see what Lindsay and the rest of the design team has to show you for this week....
