October Stamp Club Projects

Today I wanted to share the October Stamp Club Projects with you.  We actually did 3 projects with a mix of Autumn, Halloween and Thanksgiving. 

The first project was the Day of Gratitude Treat Holder which I showed on October 13th.  (here) 
Everyone had a great time making this project.

The second project was a cute little twist on the Gift Card Treat Holder that I had done earlier and was Gretchen Barron's idea.  The twist is instead of a Gift Card there is a note pad and instead of the Treat Holder there is a Halloween pencil.  This original idea was from Terri Snider, a fellow demonstrator in my group.  Here's my Halloween take! 

This is the closed view of the Note Pad Holder.

This is the open view of the Note Pad Holder.

Pumpkin Pie cardstock  4" x 8 1/2"  score @ 4 1/4"   Fold on the 4 1/4" and then score 5 /16" on both sides of the center score line.  This will make the pocket to hold the pencil.  Find the center of the fold and then make 2 cuts up to the 2nd score line about 1" apart. You will push the center out and then pull the other 2 sides in.  I used the corner rounder punch on the corners.
Wicked Fun Designer Paper  3 5/8" x 3 6/8" an attach to the front.  I added some Bats with the Bitty Bat Punch.  5" of Ribbon tied around the pencil will hold the pencil in place.  Add your post it pad and you are done! 

The third project I found on Stampin' Connections and I absolutely fell in love with Mrs. Acorn!  This was done by France Martin on Stamp and Scrap with Frenchie.  She even made a video so that you can follow along with her.  (here)   Mrs. Acorn is just too cute!!   Thanks Frenchie for sharing this FUN autumn card.
