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!

In the meantime we have received a shipment of NEW product.  Mr. Barnes happened to be here as the order was checked in and couldn't resist getting the Create A Flake Snowflakes Die from Spellbinders.  He was very quick to bring us samples of how beautiful they really are once they are cut out!  Look at the new Icicles die too! (Thanks Mr. Barnes) Great for Winter Holiday cards or gift tags.

Also, the New colors of Tim Holtz Distress Markers are now in and on the shelf.

It's a must to come in and see all the new product that has arrived.  Just a few things pictured below!  Look how cute those penguins are and those flowers are just beautiful.  You really should see them in person.

 This is the final sample of Jenny's Non Envelope Class using the Envelope Punch Board.  Its a candy box!  It's so cute.  This box and two cards are being made in this class.  The two cards were pictured in a previous post.  If you want to see them better just come on in.  They are sitting on the desk for everyone to see.  This Non Envelope Class using the Envelope Punch Board is being offered on November 2.  Call and reserve your spot today.
