Today, I am showing projects using "Nuts About You" set.
This furry fellow is sure to make your friends giggle!

Folded up, this card measures 5in x 4 in...and can fit into an invitation sized envelope.
I decorated the sides by using colored ink and the acorn image in various sizes.
Cut your paper 5 in x 11 in. Score at: 1.5, 3.5, 7.5, 9.5 inches...along the long edge.

Use a Repositional Glue Dot ® to secure the writing panel.
This way, you can write on a flat surface, and then reattach your message.

I used a supply tag to whip up a quick book mark. 
Every student is probably starting to feel the pressure of school now that we are back into the swing of things.  Here is a fun way to brighten someone's day!

Did you know that you can get SVG Outlines for Pretty Cute Stamps images?  If you don't like to fussy cut, here is a simple solution!  

All New Releases will be on sale through September 30 and you can save even more by purchasing the September 2014 Stamp Bundle!  Just think about it...Halloween, Breast Cancer Awareness, Fall, Thanksgiving, Birthdays, treats and tricks...all in one bundle!  That should make you squeal with delight!

Featured Guest Artist...Me!

Then, take some time to browse their site for cool ideas and new insights!


Something Bewitching...

 She comes by night, in fearsome flight,
In garments black as pitch,
the queen of doom upon her broom,
the wild and wicked witch...

Pretty Cute Stamps doesn't have ugly or old witches...
We have really cute, sweet, adorable witches!

With so many, many sentiments in this to be released set, you can create a subway art type background in shades of blues!

How does that make you cackle? 
This set is called, Bewitched, by the way.

Be sure to fly on over on September 24th for our blog hop
featuring a great new collection of sets that will get you through all the fall festivities.

Thanks for resting your broom stick here for a spell!  
For more sneak peeks, check out the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog!

Bling Strips, pearls and enamel stars can be found at The Eyelet Outlet.


Time to plan your boos!

The season to spook and boo is just around the corner!
You probably have some fun die cut silhouettes perfect for Halloween.
Use the amazing bling strips and brads from The Eyelet Outlet to 
jazz up your cards and creations!

Here, I took these two black bats to  Dazzing Dynamic Duo by adding
purple Bling strips. One small rhinestone adorns the Pumpkin brad...a little
glean on the orangy skin!  (Use a Mini Glue Dot!!)  And a few Mini Candy Corn (brads) 
never hurt a body during the Halloween season!

A ruffly bow ties in some more of the orange. 

Right off the brad line are these fantastic new Mini Spider brads.
Petite and cute, you will get a scream of delight from the recipient!
I electrified this jack o lantern by using bling strips and the Spooky Eye brads.

You can find both these terrific sentiments at Starving Artistamps.


World of Thanks!

I never have enough thank you notes.
So, when Pretty Cute Stamps came out 
with the darling The Write Stuff set, 
which included some words of thanks, 
I was delighted!

I used an old map for my background.
Don't you love the pops of red?

And the bling strips, from The Eyelet Outlet, just catch your eye...
as well as well as the smiling pen and globe!
Mark your way over to the Pretty Cute Stamps blog 
for more ideas using this amazing set!


Sweet As Can Be!

Hey there! Check out how Lovebug Creations' rumple ribbon
is as sweet as can be 
 is during the autumn season!

This set is from Pretty Cute Stamps: Bushels of Fun!
I love putting this smilie face on the happy apple,
because apples ARE FUN!

The 5 mm bling strips can be found at The Eyelet Outlet.
Be sure to add Micro Glue Dots ® to your craft shopping list.
They are great for securing your ribbon (or rhinestones) in just the right place!

Keep your eye on the blue, blue skies of autumn before the snow/rain/sleet/ grey start up!
But don't worry..there is also Basic Grey Rumple Ribbon for those days too!
