Since getting the puppies and going back to work I have not had much time to stamp or play in my studio. Both  seem to occupy most of my time. It seems that when there is time to squeeze a craft in, something else occupies that time. I found some time in small spurts today to complete a simple project that could have been completed in less than an hour but, not in my house.
MY FIRST HALLOWEEN PROJECT OF 2012 was totally inspired by the cover of Paper Crafts magazine. I found these bottles at the Dollar Store and  dry brushed painted them  with black acrylic paint. I made the corks out of rolled corrugated cardboard and hot glued them in bottles. I used the LABELS COLLECTION FRAMELETS #125598, APOTHECARY ACCENTS FRAMELETS #127003,  and the new FESTIVE PAPER PIERCING PACK #127857 (ALL in which I am totally in love with!)
I ran them through my BIG SHOT machine, pierced using the fabulous templates, ran purple layer through machine using spider web embossing folder, glued layers together (middle black using pop dots), and attached 3D jack-o-lanterns (Jolene's) sticker embellishments with added hot glue for stability.  
Total cost for both bottles is less than $5.00.
I will use these for decorations or possibly give one away at my next stamp workshop/ camp.
