Scandinavian Wishes

Hello!  Welcome to a new Stamp of the Month set for October!

This month we are showing artwork made with the new Scandinavian Wishes stamp set which retails for $17.95 or ONLY $5 with a purchase of $50 or more!

If you are coming from Maria's blog you are headed in the right direction.  If you are just joining the hop here on my site... no worries- it should circle around if you follow the link at the bottom of this post.

I had fun creating my card:

Supplies:  Chocolate, Cranberry and Sweet Leaf Cardstock, Babycakes Level 2 paper pack, scallop border punch, red glitter trim, mocha pearls, cocoa pigment ink, Cranberry, ponderosa pine and sweet leaf base markers.  I also used green glitz glitter gel.  I used 3-d foam tape to pop the house up, and Art Philosophy to cut the house from Colonial White cardstock.

For the house:  I inked the stamp in cocoa pigment ink, used a blender pen to pick all the ink up off the flowers, heart and tree, and used the markers to add color onto the stamp before stamping the image.

The babycakes polka dot paper actually has sunset (orangey) dots instead of cranberry, but because of the lighter colored heart and flowers it all sort of blends together.

Hope you enjoyed my little peek into my latest crafting endeavor :)  Now head on over to Laurie's blog to see what she came up with!

If you don't have a consultant (or I'm already your consultant ;)  you can head over to my site and shop online to pick up your supplies.

Here's a little video from CTMH on how to put together a new project kit offered this fall only!  This item is GREAT for gift making!  Your teens can express themselves by wearing great jewelry they create themselves.

Along with this kit we have a line of "wearables" like headbands, wrist cuffs, necklaces and rings that can be completely adorned with any of our fabrics and bling!

Trick or Treats project kits

I had a ball designing these treat holders for my club members to create in October.
I thought I'd show them off here too!

They are very simple- flat cardstock, patterned cardstock, glitter paper and a treat cup.  Easy access to candy without ruining the entire thing!

If you would like a kit- Please let me know.  I am waiting on supplies so these would not ship till October 12th BUT they assemble quickly because I'll pre-cut everything INCLUDING the circle for the treat cup.  You will also receive a guide with instructions and photos for the assembly.

5 treat holders for $11 including shipping.  You will need a super strong glue (like liquid glass), normal scrapbooking adhesive and some scissors.  Need more?  Here's the pricing:
It INCLUDES shipping so if you are local prices will be a little less.
5 for $11
10 for $20
15 for $27
20 for $35

Orders can be placed by clicking HERE before October 1st so that I can prep your kit in time.

If you are LOCAL to Kalamazoo/Battle Creek MI- TELL ME THAT when you e-mail me and you will save on shipping.  Club members- this is one of your October project kit options!

Orders will ship First Class so You should receive them no later than October 16th

**Candy not provided... m&m's work well***
