Hi All! And a Very Happy Wednesday to you! It's Halloween today as we introduce Totally Tags Halloween, Fa-BOO-lous, Graphic Greetings Halloween ALC, Trick or Treat Word ALC, Spider & Spiderweb Dies, Spiderweb Border Die, plus Tricks & Treats Project Pantry Kit too! Wowie!! 8-)  Today I am sharing the Adorable New Trick or Treat Word ALC designed the Fabulously talented Taylor Vanbruggen! 

As some of you may already know, I LOVE all TE's Fabulous Word ALC's! 8-)  And this one is No exception! 8-) And since I Adore Halloween goodies as well, I thought creating a set of Fun candy bar wraps with them would be a match made in heaven, lol 8-)  I Stamped my Super CUTE Trick or Treat ALCs with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them up with my trusty Copics. I cut them out with the help of my Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals Nesties sets & added my Spooky clouds with a TE Clouds Border Die template, Dusty Concord, Antique Linen Distress inks and a stippling brush. My mats and BG layers were all created with Bazzill Basics Raven CS and the New Tricks & Treats Project Pantry Kit. My Fun little spider and spider webs were created with the New Spider & Spiderweb Dies and the New Spiderweb Border Die as well! To finish these all up I added a touch of Stardust stickles and some cute Polkadot Ribbon also from the Tricks & Treats Project Pantry Kit..

Here are the dimensions for my candy bar wrap, For those of you who have never made one of these like me, until now anyway, lol... Start with a piece of CS that's 5 1/5 X 6 and score at 2, 2 1/4, 4 1/2 & 4 3/4. And then decorate to your hearts content! 8-)

Also, don't forget to join us on Facebook for an early reveal for all the new stamp sets tonight at 6pm PST. And be sure to Check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has whipped up for you today! 8-)
