EEEK, don't be scared, it's not Halloween yet but I just couldn't help myself. These holiday designs from PSA Essentials are so fun and cute and kid-friendly! I used the Charcoal baker's twine to sew my spider web, using a needle for plastic needlework canvas, and placed this sweet Mummy image from the Happy Halloween set on top of the hand-sewn web. 

Baker's Twine Spiderweb Halloween Card |  iloveitallwiithmonikawright.com

I used a glassine envelope to hold my card that was tied off with more baker's twine and a circle punched mummy image. I used my long-reach hole punch to make my holes before sewing the Mandarin baker's twine through.

Since I'll have two kidlets in school this year, I'm going to be putting my PSA self-inking stamper to good use. Let's see 2 kids x 15 kids in each class...yep, lots of stamping and twine tying at our house! I first layered my 3" scalloped circle, then the pencil, which was topped with my stamped sentiment. I punched two holes, using  my Crop-o-Dile on each side of the pencil and tied both Mandarin and Charcoal baker's twine from The Twinery into a knot. I then circle punched out just the friendly witch image and adhered it to the top of my knot, which gives it a dimensional look and feel.

Here you can see the layers and how I then knotted the ends of each strand of baker's twine.

In case my girls aren't going to let me get away with giving pencils, here's a cute way to package those sweet treats. Instead of a plastic sandwich bag, why not use some glassine bags? It adds a touch of mystery.

Wondering what those stamped images inside the bag are? Just top your Reese's peanut butter cup with a stamped image from your favorite PSA Essentials stamp set and you've just added more fun to your goody bags!

Have an adult party you're planning? Wrap your punched scallop shape with some Charcoal baker's twine to mimic a spider web, adhere some pop dots behind your PSA stamped image and your party invite has just been kicked up a notch! The idea of wrapping the scallop-punched shape was shared by Stephanie, one of the Designers for The Twinery blog and I just adore the look.

We love holiday decor at our house and you'll often find our kitchen window adorned with seasonal banners. Punch your banner shapes, add your sentiments, string it all with 3 strands of baker's twine and you are ready to "boo-tify" your neighborhood. The two-color ink selection on each of my designs was accomplished in one quick, easy step, thanks to PSA Essentials' award-winning inks.

Halloween Garland Banner | iloveitallwithmonikawright.com

See the reflection in the glass? That's because I added images to the front of the banner garland so that it's cute from both inside and outside.

Be sure to hop along to the blog of Anothonette Chavez, where she'll be sharing more inspiration.
