Game On!

With September comes a new release of fall products from the Eyelet Outlet!
Just in time for the holidays or any days!



 Moms of today's kids know that so many of them crave video games!
(Kind of like the way you crave new washi maybe??)

To create this star feature, I lined up blue glitter washi on a piece of cardstock.
Then I ran it through my die cutter with a star brad. Instantly you can create any glittery shape 
for your paper crafting projects!!

Here is a card for the gamer in your life!


Oh...and Glue Dots ® minis are great to have on hand when your enamels need a little extra help staying down. I also used Pop Up Relief Glue Dots ® to pop up the star feature!!
Ooh, I love those dots!

My son rolls his eyes at this sentiment from Pretty Cute Stamps.
 But hey...it's funny for us moms!

Supplies:
Washi...decorative and glitter
Enamel dots...various sizes

School's in session!!

YES!!
School is in session...Michigan starts after Labor Day...
so now, hopefully, I can get back to my thrice weekly swim sessions and oodles of time crafting!
Right? Right? haha

This card is a school inspired card...and I made it back in August as I was trying to get my kids registered for a new year of learning and growth!




So make this fall inspired set called Autumns' Calling by The Project Bin more schoolish, 
I merely added lots of school-like embellies!
Many of which can be found at the Eyelet Outlet!


Enjoy your day!

So Grateful!


Without a doubt,
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
I also try to show gratitude year round though.
I love that this new set from The Project Bin, called "Autumns's Calling," can be fall...
or general any day of the year.
B/c Gratitude is the right attitude!




To make it more "everyday," stay away from fall colors or themes.
Here I made a funky, whimsical card...and boy, what happiness this is going to bring!

The bling can be found at the Eyelet Outlet.
Glue Dots (R) are great for securing chipboard and large bling to your craft projects!
Try Craft Glue Dots.  I really like those!

Why Yes!

Who is ready to get their Haunt On?
You'll love this new set from The Project Bin called "Haunt It!" 



I must like this image b/c I just posted a card the last week using it...
But this time, I used washi and swirl bling from the Eyelet Outlet to create some Halloween magic!



Don't you love those large spider brads hanging down on yellow/grey twine?
Spiders are so nice when they are not real! 

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Directly to the Moon

I'm up as the Free 4 All Hostess on Splitcoast today.
My little team decided on "direct to paper" this week...and this is what I created!
The simple, main panel is one piece...and
I sponged, sponged, sponged...Using a mask...
to create this spook-tacular card!

Oh the challenge was "Direct to Paper!"


The image comes from a new set called "Haunt It" by The Project Bin. 
Embellishments are from the Eyelet Outlet...which incidentally have new product rolling out! YEAH!
I used Micro Glue Dots (R) to secure the violet rhinestones!

Honestly, it took me several attempts and experimentations..but the result is something I really like!

I hope you are all getting ready for fall and halloween and...MY FAVORITE...
Thanksgiving!
