Here’s a fun and simple craft to make for the whole office, classroom or neighborhood using yummy Starburst and Skittles!

You’re going to love how easy this is.  I used the print and cut function with my Silhouette Cameo to create these cute bag toppers.  You can find them in the Silhouette store as ID 65218 (witch), 65216 (pumpkin), 65213 (vampire) and 65215 (mummy).  Need help printing and cutting with the Cameo?  Here’s a tutorial.  Don’t have a Silhouette?  No problemo.  You can also get the toppers from Pebbles In My Pocket.com and cut them out yourself.  They are listed as  Pumpkin, Mummy, Dracula and Witch Treat Bag Topper.

Divide your Starburst candy by color.  I chose to use same or similar colors for each of my mummies but any color or color combo is fine!

I didn’t have a bag that was the right size for what I wanted to do so I simply folded the bag I had in half and taped it using double sided tape.  I added the Starburst candy and taped it again so that all the candy fit snugly.  It was that simple!

After folding and taping the cellophane bags I was using, I noticed that it made them rigid enough to stand.  That’s how my mummies are able to walk around doing mummy things.

I picked out all of the colors of Skittles that matched my toppers.  Don’t be afraid to mix and match any of the colors because they are all yummy.  I should know because I ate some from each of these packs.  That’s why there’s that hole present in the pile of Skittles on the right.  Hey, “Official Taster” is a real job, ok?  I take it seriously.  LOL!

After all of my bags were sealed and my toppers were on, I created my little “seeds” signs and printed and cut them out.

I’m going to grow a vampire for sure.  Then I’ll be sleeping in a garlic necklace every night.  Hmmm, maybe I should make a Skittles necklace too for some added color and yummy smell.

Knowing some spells could be helpful.  Maybe I’ll grow a witch too…but she can’t bring her spider with her.  I do look forward to riding her broom around the moon though.  Fun!

Yes!  Grow a jack o’ lantern!  Now you don’t have to carve at all.  They just show up that way.  Nice!

So I could make a bunch of monsters, witches and mummies, I bought the Skittles & Starburst 30 Pack from Sam’s Club.  I had the coolest experience while I was there.  I got to use the self checkout and scan all of my items myself.  It took no time at all!  I was out in a flash.  I’m definitely using self check out again.  Scanning things is fun.  Is it weird that I think that?

Because this pack is so large you can make a lot of treats.  Remember friends, neighbors, school staff and community helpers while you’re scaring up some fun treats!

Perfect Halloween Food!  Black & Orange Swirled TruMoo Orange Scream Cupcakes #HalloweenFood #TruMooTreats #ad

Making Halloween themed food is so much fun!  Today I tried something that I’ve never done before.  I made swirled cupcakes!  You’ll be glad to know two things: They’re not difficult to make and you can substitute milk for water in a store bought cake mix.  What’s the big deal about that?  It makes them more moist.  Today I’m using TruMoo Orange Scream Milk.  It’s perfect for Halloween AND  it’s low fat milk from your trusted dairy, which means it contains 8 essential nutrients. Each flavored milk is sweetened with just enough sugar and doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup, contains no artificial growth hormones, no HFCS.  Fun and good for the kids!

Perfect Halloween Food!  Black & Orange Swirled TruMoo Orange Scream Cupcakes #HalloweenFood #TruMooTreats #ad

I kept this recipe super simple.  I bought a box of white cake mix at WalMart when I picked up my TruMoo Orange Scream Milk.  Where the mix I was using called for water, I substituted TruMoo Orange Scream Milk.  It turned the batter a slight orange color but I wanted it to be more vivid, so I added some gel food coloring.  Gel food coloring helps you achieve vivid colors without diluting icings or batters.  I halved the batter into two bowls adding orange to one and black to the other.  Next, I dropped the batter in no particular order into a lined muffin tin.  Simply bake following the box instructions and you have swirled cupcakes!

How to Make a Shaker Tag http://joyslife.com/how-to-make-a-shaker-tag/ http://joyslife.com/how-to-make-a-shaker-tag/#comments Fri, 17 Oct 2014 14:18:38 +0000 http://joyslife.com/?p=37222 [...] ]]> How to Cut Craft Foam with the Cut N Boss & How to Make a Birthday Shaker Tag #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss

Hi friends!  Remember when I showed you how to cut felt with the Cut ‘n Boss?  Well, today I want to use the same “happy frame” die from the Teresa Collins Lifestyle Die Collection to show you that the Cut ‘n Boss can also do a great job cutting craft foam.  It’s how I made this shaker tag.  I love this versatile die because there are so many possibilities for using it and because it cuts so well!  Can you believe it can do such a good job cutting out felt, glitter paper and craft foam?  That’s just super cool to me.

How to Cut Craft Foam with the Cut N Boss & How to Make a Birthday Shaker Tag #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss

I want to start with this graphic that I made for you (and me) so we can remember the “sandwich” of platforms to make craft foam cut in the Cut ‘n Boss.  I’m using that super cheap foam that you find in the craft stores.  It’s inexpensive and available in a ton of colors.  I’m using white because it gives a nice clean look on most projects.  If you have a different color foam you can use that; however, strange foam colors show through…like they did on my fish shaker card here.

How to Cut Craft Foam with the Cut N Boss & How to Make a Birthday Shaker Tag #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss

Another quick note!  If you want to cut a specific area of paper using your dies, tape them down with washi tape or this Post It tape so they don’t move around.  Yep.  That’s just a roll of Post It note paper.  You tear it off to the size you need.  It’s sort of pricey but it works really well.

How to Cut Craft Foam with the Cut N Boss & How to Make a Birthday Shaker Tag #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss

Here are the layers you need to create a shaker tag or a shaker card…well, any kind of shaker.  Start with a piece of cardstock that fits the entire size of your die cut.  Optional: If you want to add more stability to your shaker card or just want to add a layer of decorative paper that is different from your backing add that in now.  Next, glue the craft foam layer onto the cardstock back.  Add your filler pieces.  I’m using sequins and stars from the Teresa Collins Lifestyle dies.  Cover the filler with a piece of clear acetate.  The final step is to glue your top piece over the acetate layer.  You’re done!  Shake your booty…or your tag/card…or both.

How to Cut Craft Foam with the Cut N Boss & How to Make a Birthday Shaker Tag #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss

I used Core’dinations Glitter Silk cardstock for the top layer (happy) and the stars.

How to Cut Craft Foam with the Cut N Boss & How to Make a Birthday Shaker Tag #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss

There are all the layers.  In this picture, you can really see how well that craft foam layer cut.  I glued everything together using Glossy Accents.  It dries clear which helps keep smudges and mistakes from showing.  I can use all the help available when it comes to that.  LOL!

How to Cut Craft Foam with the Cut N Boss & How to Make a Birthday Shaker Tag #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss

I love making shakers.  I think they’re so happy and fun!  If you want to turn a shaker into a tag just add a loop of ribbon to the back.  Want to make it into a card?  Simply glue it to a card base.  Sooooo easy!

Happy Crafting, my Friends!

New Silhouette Cameo 2014 http://joyslife.com/new-silhouette-cameo-2014/ http://joyslife.com/new-silhouette-cameo-2014/#comments Wed, 15 Oct 2014 21:33:41 +0000 http://joyslife.com/?p=37296 [...] ]]> Did you know that a new Silhouette Cameo was coming to market?  If you’ve heard the rumors…it’s true!

 

New Silhouette Cameo 2014 #SilhouetteCameo

So, what’s the big deal?  Well, so far I’m not seeing a lot changes…but I still pre-ordered one on Amazon.  Yes sir, I did.  I can’t help myself.  (The one shown above is from Amazon…and comes with more things than other offers I found.)

 

New Silhouette Cameo 2014 #SilhouetteCameo

New Silhouette Cameo 2014 #SilhouetteCameo

They added a Full-color LCD touch-screen for easy navigation and use.

New Silhouette Cameo 2014 #SilhouetteCameo

This Crosscutter feature is also new.  It’s on the back of unit for cutting materials fed directly from a roll.  I guess you’d mostly benefit from this if you’re also using the roll feeder, though you can use a roll of vinyl or other material without it.

silhouetteCameoNEWJoysLifeCutterCompartment

There is a compartment for keeping blades, the crosscutter or candy.  I added that part about candy myself but you could store other things in there too…like donuts.  No, that last part is also just my suggestion.

New Silhouette Cameo 2014 #SilhouetteCameo

UPDATE: Silhouette just released this .pdf about the machine.

It says the machine also has:

Steel Spring Rollers (a definite upgrade in my opinion)

USB Drive Port

Guide Marks for Alignment (for aligning your mat or other materials for cutting)

Power Saving Sleep Mode

Full 12 Inch Cutting

Are you going to order the new Silhouette Cameo?  It doesn’t seem to be a big upgrade to me but if you’re in the market for one or are ready to get a new one, why not?  Right?  I definitely pre-ordered mine.  I just can’t say no to a new machine.

I love this picture I took of my sons back when they were shorter than I am.  It looks like Iron Man should probably have slept with one eye opened.  LOL!  It was super fun making a frame for this using a bit of the ton of craft felt that I have on hand along with the Craftwell Cut n’ Boss.

Happy Halloween Photo Card with Craftwell Cut 'N Boss & Teresa Collins #Halloween #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss #SimpleStories #card

I made this easy to reference felt “sandwich” image so we can all remember the setup.  Here’s a link to a .pdf of more Cut ‘n Boss platform combinations.

Happy Halloween Photo Card with Craftwell Cut 'N Boss & Teresa Collins #Halloween #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss #SimpleStories #card

I’m using the “happy frame” die from the Teresa Collins Lifestyle Die Collection.  Can you believe how well that felt cut?  I am so impressed!!  It even cut out the tiny centers of the letters.  Now, just so you know the letter “A” is made as a solid in this die, so that’s exactly how it should look.  I printed out that photo of my boys, hand cut it and mounted it purposefully sideways to a black piece of cardstock.

Happy Halloween Photo Card with Craftwell Cut 'N Boss & Teresa Collins #Halloween #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss #SimpleStories #card

I used Simple Stories Frankie & Friends cardstock and a Core’dinations Kraft card base along with some sequins and the felt photo to make my card.  I cut a space out of the patterned cardstock for the felt frame to fit.

Happy Halloween Photo Card with Craftwell Cut 'N Boss & Teresa Collins #Halloween #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss #SimpleStories #card

I ran a black Memento pen around the edges of the cardstock and then cranked the whole thing through my Xyron Creative Station.  I glued sequins onto the card using Glossy Accents as my adhesive.  Then I attached the photo using the Xyron Mega Runner.

Happy Halloween Photo Card with Craftwell Cut 'N Boss & Teresa Collins #Halloween #Craftwell #TeresaCollins #CutNBoss #SimpleStories #card

Aren’t you floored at the precision of the cut felt?  I didn’t think it would cut but it did!  Now I want to make more things out of felt using the Cut ‘n Boss!  I’m going to use this same die and make a Happy Birthday card.  It’s cool that the “Happy” is so versatile.  Simply vary the word below it and you’ve got a whole different theme.  So cool!

I use Amazon.com all the time for everything.  Seriously.  Everything.  I buy food, clothing, electronics, cleaning supplies, books, gifts…everything from them.  It saves me an amazing amount of time being able to quickly find what I need, press a few buttons and get those items going where they’re needed.  A perfect example happened just today.  My daughter has been home from college for Fall break but headed back to school today.  She took toilet paper, paper towels, food and just as she was leaving she asked if she could take some K-cups for her Keurig.  Yes.  Absolutely.  Just not too-too-too many.  I could have a coffee emergency.  Instead, I had her just take a few and I sent her two more boxes from Amazon and finished shopping before she even pulled out of the driveway.  She’ll have them by Friday and I still have some on hand for myself.  College students.  LOL!

 Amazon Shopping Party & College Care Package Ideas #AmazonWishList #AmazonHasIt #shop

Honestly, I don’t mind sending her things at all.  I really enjoy it.  Plus, I know she needs things to make her dorm room feel more like home.  (That’s her tiny dorm from Freshman year.  It’s was so bare before she and her roommate moved in.)  She goes to school in a different state and it’s a long drive to see her.  Shipping things to her from Amazon is an easy way for me to do something for her, whether it’s a necessity or just a nicety.  #AmazonHasIt

Amazon Shopping Party & College Care Package Ideas #AmazonWishList #AmazonHasIt #shop

She’s worked hard in school and done well.  I’m really proud of her and happy for her.  So, when she started talking about how much she and her roommate use the Brita Water Pitcher we bought during the summer and how she’d been thinking about buying an additional one, I made a note to get her another one for Christmas.  It turns out that there’s a $2 off coupon for it right now too.  Easy!  Getting it.  She said that it makes such a difference to the way their water tastes that she pours it into their coffee maker, uses it to make ice cubes and even brushes her teeth using a glass of water from it.  I told you she loves it!

Amazon Shopping Party & College Care Package Ideas #AmazonWishList #AmazonHasIt #shop

The Brita Pitcher 10 cup water filtration pitcher comes with 1 filter.  It reduces chlorine taste and odor, zinc taste, copper, mercury and cadmium, often found in tap water.  1 filter can replace 300 standard 16.9 ounce water bottles!  It’s a BPA-free pitcher with easy-fill lid and comfort grip handle.  The electronic indicator tracks when to change the water filter.  Now that she’s got a dorm room with a full kitchen, she really enjoys cooking.  She uses water from her Brita Pitcher in her cooking too!

Sometimes after studying, snacking and binge watching SVU there’s cleaning to be done.  At our house we’ve used  Clorox Disinfectant Wipes for years and years, so that’s what my daughter takes from our house to her dorm so she can clean.  LOL!  When she runs out, that’s what we send her too.

Amazon Shopping Party & College Care Package Ideas #AmazonWishList #AmazonHasIt #shop

Clorox Disinfectant Wipes new and improved packaging contains a value pack of three 75 count canisters of disinfecting wipes in 2 scents: 2 Citrus Blend, 1 Fresh Scent.  It kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, including Human Coronavirus and Influenza A2 Virus and it also kills cold and flu viruses, E. Coli, Salmonella, Staph, and Strep.  The clear-drying formula works on a variety of surfaces.  Plus, the powerful cleaning technology fights kitchen grease and soap scum and the package is easy-to-open!

Having a hard time coming up with care package ideas?  Try to cover some basic needs first, food and warmth.  So add either some healthy foods, junk food or a mix of them.  Then throw in a blanket, socks, a shirt…something to comfort or warm.  Next, add in things that run out or wear out like earbuds, chewing gum, school supplies and cleaning supplies.  Finally, finish with something fun like a comedy DVD or something useful and unexpected like a Brita water pitcher.  I found all of these things at Amazon!  Woo hoo!  The #AmazonWishList feature allows me to keep a running list of things my college student needs and I can send them to her without ever entering a store!

This was sooooo good.  See that photo? I ate it.  Well, not the photo exactly but the breakfast for sure.  My favorite thing?  They’re frozen waffles.  That means that if you make the apples and roast the nuts the night before you can quickly put this together for your whole family even when you’re pressed for time…like I was today.

After a busy morning getting everyone where they needed to go, I still hadn’t had breakfast!  I only had a little bit of time before I had to get ready and go too.  I was super glad that I took a few minutes to enjoy my breakfast though because I ended up being gone a long time.  Yep.  Breakfast = important.  Thank goodness it was fast!  Check out the new Aunt Jemima waffles package.  The new freshness bag is resealable, which means the waffles stay fresh longer.  Plus, it now contains 14 waffles, up from 10.  4 free waffles! #4morewaffles
