Shabby Pumpkins

Sorry folks.. forgot to take a photo, but I'll link up the tutorial I found on making the shabby pumpkins we made today at the make 'n take.  Check out the tutorial here... by MsLiberty25.

Here's the basic instructions:
1.  Cut 12x12 cardstock in half so you have 2 6"x 12" pieces.  You can make 2 pumpkins with one sheet.  You can also adjust the size of your pumpkin by cutting it to desired length.

2.  Then cut the sheet into 5/8" strips.  You should get about 19 strips.

3.  Punch holes on each end of the strips.

3.  Using long brads, stick all strips through the brad and secure by opening up the feet.

4.  Fan out strips and select strip closest to the brad head.  Starting with that strip, stick the other end of the strip through another brad.  Select a strip on the opposite end.  Then repeat, selecting strips on opposite ends.

5. Close up brad and decorate!

You can see pumpkin samples at the shop!  Great for housing goodies like Halloween candy and other small gifts!

Happy Valentine's Day

Is everyone enjoying their Valentine's Day?  We hope you are!  
We did receive an order from Hero Arts that is just perfect for today or any "LOVE" card or scrapbook page you want to create. I love hearts because they can be used for any occasion. There is also great new Hero Arts Fancy Dies that are a must see.  Check them out in the picture below.

I can't wait to play with that butterfly.  I love the detail and the  Art of the Card Stamps from Hero Arts are always my go to stamps.  They are really easy to use with the Distress Inks and Stains!  Those tags you see have matching dies. They are the perfect size to hang off of small gifts and treat bags.

So much to come and look at.  The ideas are always endless.

Also, the Class scheduled for Saturday with Tracy is full and she is offering to have the class again on Saturday, February 23rd 10:30 - 12:30.  The class will show you the techniques used to make these cards (shown below).  We will be using Spellbinders, Distress Inks, and embossing powders.  It's a lot of fun.  Call the shop to reserve your seat!

We are still awaiting a couple of orders. Life Style Crafts is due in any day.  Watch for their wonderful new dies and embossing folders. Also,coming soon is new Lawn Fawn and Sizzix!

Don't forget to like us on Facebook!  You never know when we will post a daily deal.
