Oh the Insanity!

Today is the 2nd major release of Stamp Insanity, available exclusively at Stamp Happens

There are three sets being released today, Halloween Henry, Morgan’s Spell and Morgan’s Love.

All are fabulous and you can hop around to the DT Stampin Sistahs to get some inspiration before you fill up your shopping bag and get inky!

Here we go!

This project was created using the Halloween Henry set, which includes a main Henry image and lots of sentiments.  I decided to go a little non-traditional with this project and think back to my days of Trick-or-Treating.

I was inspired by my Dad. Yes, believe it or not ;)  See, he had a notorious habit of getting my sister and I to look away, and he’d lovingly steal food off of our plates.  It was just for fun, we certainly weren’t fighting over food at the dinner table. 

What holiday could be more fun to sneak some treats from the kids…Halloween of course!  My sister and I would come home from our rounds and separate all of our candy.  My Dad got the little packages of peanuts, my Mom got those caramel kisses candy (you know, the toffee like ones in the black and orange wrappers…the ones you love or hate!), and we, my sister and I, got the rest of our loot.

Since we had a Dad with a sweet tooth, and we were routinely told “if you don’t have your name on it…it’s fair game”…we learned pretty quickly to take inventory of our sweets. 

So when I received the Halloween Henry set and saw this sentiment, I knew exactly what I was going to create…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Halloween Inventory Cards!

I tried to think of the major categories of goodies and wrote them out ...with an “Everything Else” category at the bottom for good measure.

I stamped some bats from the set and added some Black Onyx glitter.

 

 

mmmmm Candy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Materials: Stamp Insanity Halloween Henry set; Bo Bunny Boo Crew DP; Black and Green American Craft cardstock; MS Black Onyx glitter; Sharpie and a ruler

Too cute! Love the story that goes along with it ;o) My dad used to tell us he had to try everything first and then say, "oh, you wouldn't like it!" lol
I love the little inventory lists - a great idea! A parent could even turn it into a fun little lesson on counting with the younger ones.

Thanks Jen- that means a lot coming from you! I used my new photo box I made with the microwave box. I used some old pillowcases to filter the openings. I'm still working on the number of lights to use, one OTT light, and two desk lamps with daytime bulbs in it, definitely makes a difference from before :)
