Hello friends – it’s Sandy back with you to share a fast and easy project that will add fun and sparkle to your holidays. Yes, the holiday season will soon be upon us, whether we are ready or not. We like to entertain and especially during the holidays. I’ve made these fun little luminaries to decorate my dinner table and to use as place markers. They are blank at the moment but as soon as my guest list is final I will add names using a label maker or typing and printing them from my computer. The battery-operated candles last for a few hours so turn them on just before your guests arrive and they will last through dinner.
it’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create a wearable flower.
Hello, it is Christine here today with a card that I created for Breast Cancer Awareness as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This card is dedicated to our very own wonderful designer Susan Tierney-Cockburn in memory of her daughter Kelly and to all those that have been affected by breast cancer.
My idea for this card started with a local news report on a gentleman from a couple of towns over from us who grows a field of pink pumpkins each year and, once harvested, sells the pumpkins and donates all proceeds to Relay for Life. I started with a pinkish pumpkin using Susan’s new Garden Notes French Pumpkin and then added in a couple more of her new releases – Garden Notes Helenium and Feverfew 1.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Hot Chocolate Season Card. The inspiration came from one of Krista Schneider’s new stamp sets, Marshmallow Snowmen. With that element of my card figured out, I added more with dies from ModaScrap, Els van de Burgt Studio and Susan’s Garden Notes as well as a sentiment stamp from Joset Designs to finish it off. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Susan’s Garden Notes has a fabulous new release now available. Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson today and I have a card designed using two of the new die sets, Astrantia and Trevi Urn, along with a pair of of previously-released favorites, Maidenhair Fern and Primrose.
Hello paper gardeners !
Every fall I feel it’s hard to see the days get shorter, the warm sun disappear and the cold rain setting in. Than again Mother Nature puts on a great show with all the colors changing in the trees. We get inside to prepare some warm meal in the slow cooker with the many wonderful vegetables ready to be harvest and our home smells like happiness. I found a quote from an anonymous writer that capture my present state of mind: ” The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let things go…” It inspired this card and I hope you’ll like it.
Our Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team have again been busy throughout the month creating some fabulous cards using Elizabeth Craft Designs stamps, dies, etc. As most of these are posted on their personal blogs, there may have been a few cards you may have missed.

Angela here to share a birthday card with a fall theme. I had a lot of fun playing with Distress Oxide ink backgrounds the other day. One of them proved to be just right for this card. I have to admit to being particularly fond of fall colours and especially like a pop of purple, so of course Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Asters were just what I needed to go with her Chrysanthemums. Some purple berries, and voila! Joset’s Dream stamps provided just the right sentiment.
I’m Luciana, here to share with you a cute wooden blooming box.
