Halloween Treat for Nacho Average Challenges

The theme challenge at Nacho Average Challenges this week is to make a Halloween treat. I poked around on Pinterest and saw some super cute witches’ hats to put on Halloween candy. I tweaked it a bit to use the tools that I had on hand.

Kit Kat Witches Hat by Yapha

Stamps: none
Ink: none
Paper: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper
Other: Star Framelits, Layering Circle Framelits, Banner Duet Bunch

I used the point of the largest Star Framelit to create the pointy part of the hat, and the second largest circle framelit folded in half for the base.

They were super quick, super easy, and super cute! (And you know what, now that I am healing myself with Plexus, I’m not even tempted to eat that KitKat!!)

Rosh Hashanah Tag for a Honey Bottle

14480515_10210531368750791_7253878450176022832_o

I am super excited to be participating in a Rosh Hashanah blog hop! A huge Thank you to Miriam Permut for organizing this! You may have just come from Miriam’s blog, or Jean Fitch’s blog, if you are going backwards.

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, starts on October 2 this year. The most common theme is apples and honey, and that is what I have focused on with today’s project. The Hebrew words say “Shana Tova U’Metukah” which means a sweet new year.

Rosh Hashanah Tag by Yapha

Ink: Delightful Dijon, Real Red
Paper: Delightful Dijon, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Red Glimmer Paper
Other: 2″ Circle Punch, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Tree Builder Punch, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Festive Embossing Folder, Real Red 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon

I used this video tutorial for the shape of the apple. The stem is the trunk from the Tree Builder Punch turned upside down. I printed the greeting out from my computer. Here you an see the tag tied on to a bottle of honey. It could also be tied on to a bottle of wine to bring with to Rosh Hashanah dinner.

Your next stop on the blog hop is over at Jean Fitch. I can’t wait to see what she made!

Water Bottle Hanger for Plexus Slim

The Stamp Ink Paper challenge for this week is to make anything but a card! I thought it would be super fun to make a little hanging tag that could go on a water bottle and hold a packet of Plexus Slim. (Plexus Slim comes in individual packets for ease of use.)

Plexus Water Bottle

Stamps: Sunburst Sayings
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Emerald Envy
Paper: Mint Macaron, 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper
Other: Layered Circle Framelits, Simply Scored

In addition to the theme from Stamp Ink Paper, I also used the colors from Pals Paper Arts.

Plexus is a health and wellness company with an amazing line of natural supplements that have me feeling better than ever! Their flagship product is Plexus Slim, a pink drink that helps balance blood sugar among other things. They also have the best compensation plan that I have ever seen from a Direct Sales company (and I have been with a few!). It’s a great way to get healthy and/or earn some extra income. If you have been thinking about trying Plexus, you can find more info on my Facebook Page, or message me privately. I’d be happy to send you a sample.

Here’s another view of the bottle:
