If you are looking for a set of sentiments that are more religious,
be sure to check out the set called Luke 2.  It has all the scripture verses that will bring in the spirit to your Christmas cards this year!



Touches Your Heart

Blog Hop With Glue Dots!

Welcome to the Glue Dots ®/Card Maker Blog hop!
We are celebrating this glorious fall season with inspiration and creativity!!

You should have been directed to my blog from Kelly's blog!
If you have stumbled upon my blog and want to see the entire line up,
jump on your broom stick and start at the CardMaker blog!  

This year I was invited to a Witches' Tea.
While I have no witchy wadrobe items, creating a hat was a cinch with simple
items that I purchased from The Dollar Tree and Glue Dots ®.

Glue Dots ®: Craft, Pop Up Relief, Mini
Witch Hat
Spider Ring

Wire cutters

If you want your hat to stand up, fill the point with polyester stuffing.
I am thinking of adding a hankie to hold it in while I were it to the luncheon.

Flowers are great!
Wire cutters help you cut off the wire stems.
But think about using those flowers on the stems for added interest and color. Simply trim off the edge using scissors before adhering them to your hat.
Use Pop Up Relief and Craft Glue Dots ® to secure the fall foliage.
One hint:  Arrange the flowers and embellishments around the brim. Once you find the perfect look, 
take a picture. Then refer back to it as you glue it down.

Use wire cutters to clip the plastic ring off your spider.
Mini Glue Dots ® will secure the small spider feet nicely!

Maybe Christmas

Have you been making plans for your Christmas holiday?
It's a fun time of the year for kids of any age!

Another reason why I love these stamped sentiments from The Project Bin is because you can make them have any tone or style...just by changing out the colors and embellishments.
While this sentiment, from Maybe Christmas, could be somewhat serious...
here I made it playful with fun, holiday brads from Eyelet Outlet.

Life is better with a smile...
a laugh, a good friend...a happy note...

and maybe a bit of spunky sentiments from The Project Bin
and great embellishments from Eyelet Outlet.

Eyelet Outlet has new washi tape in its store and in the booth!
Don't you love this textured foil!
The new, large enamel dots are fun punches of colors...
and the focus is kept on the message of the sentiment!

Keep smiling!!


Be someone's Cheerleader!!

I love that the ignaural set from The Project Bin is this cheery set called "Awesome Sauce!"
Be someone's cheerleader by bringing a smile to their face when they open this card!

And...don't you love these large, bubbly enamel hearts that are from Eyelet Outlet's new fall release!
With so many styles of washi tape, you are bound to find some patterns that fit your school/team colors and spirit!

Haunt It!

Okay..some how...
blogger is haunted and did not post this card last week!

But don't be afraid...those spiders are brads from Eyelet Outlet!
No fangs there!

Now that the weather is getting a little cooler...
and the days are getting shorter...

It's time to start strutting our fall/autumn stuff!

The Project Bin has some sentiments that will put a little skip in your step!
