CCC #007: September Challenge: Chevrons !!

Hey Stampers,

Well, its the beginning of another month - and that means another new challenge over on Catherine and Cathy Create !! The theme for September is Chevrons !! When I got down to my craft room to create a project for this challenge, I was surprised at how many fun things I had with Chevrons on it !! I have the Positively Chevron Background Stamp, the awesome Chevron Embossing Folder and lots of colors of the new 3/4" Chevron Ribbon. But one thing that caught my eye was the super fun (and easy to use) Tag A Bag Bundle !! These sweet paper bags are so cute, the ombre chevron pattern on the kraft bags is SO cute !! I decided to make fun Hallowe'en treat bags with mine, can't be too early getting a head start on Halloween right ??

Ok, isn't that wicked ?? I love the new Hallowe'en Bash stamp set - that "celebrate" image is so fun !! I colored it using my Stampin' Write Markers. The combo of Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Elegant Eggplant are the perfect Hallowe'en colors to me. I made some basic rectangles of cardstock in to a tag shape by simply cutting off the corners and adding the tag "hole" using the Chalk Talk framelits. Easy right !?! And a punch art pumpkin using the Small Oval Punch added the right touch of cute to the bag ! I cant wait to make a bunch of these to give to my son's little friends !!

Well, thats it for me today !! Don't forget to run over to Catherine and Cathy Create and check out all of the fun projects that the design team came up with !! And join us too, won't ya ?? Its super fun !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
