Jar of Haunts - Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop

Hello friends!  Thanks so much for swinging by today!  You're either starting here with me, Shannon in Calgary, Canada, or you're coming from Rachel in France; either way, get comfortable and take some time to enjoy the blog hop!  We are featuring the fabulous Jar of Haunts today, just in time for some halloween creations!  

Halloween is kind of a big deal in our house.  We don't really "go big" for many holidays, but on Halloween, we are all in.  The house is decorated, we have family costumes, and deciding on candy to hand out is a major negotiation process.  We both want it to be the best!

Usually dinner is quick, since we have limited time to eat before the trick-or-treaters start showing up and my son is ready to run out the door too, but we like to make it special and festive.  

A really easy way to make a table setting special is with a festive place marker - and since Halloween is all about the spooky and the candy, why not make it both?!  These adorable little boxes make a great treat for the whole family. 

The boxes came together in a flash with the Gift Box Punch Board - it's one of my favourite tools for quick and easy treats!  A quick stamp with Ghoulish Grunge and a sponging in black ink gives them a spooky finish.  Eyeballs in a jar?  Why not?!  Blender pens make your colouring easy.

The Labeler Alphabet makes personalization easy; with multiple vowels, it's easy to just line up your letters and stamp your names in one fell swoop!  No more stamping individual letters... well, except for all of those Ns in Shannon!  Haha!  

Thank you so much for joining us on our blog hop; make sure to click through and join Steffi in Germany.  I'm sure she'll have something wonderful up her sleeve!
