This is our project for this month, a super cute ornament! And I have to share that I adore the coordinating stamps for this set...so pretty! I used Tim Holtz embossed kraft paper for the bottom layer of the ornament and then created the top layer by stamping in red ink and coloring with green Copics. The sentiment is embossed in gold. The designer paper is from Kaiser Craft. I could imagine making a bunch of these ornaments in all kinds of colors and designs - fabulous!

Today I'm sharing a project that I'll be demonstrating at an upcoming Wholly Scrap! class. I found a tutorial for this darling drawer and gift card set on Splitcoast. Although I will be forever template challenged (I seem to always make measuring mistakes...please tell me I'm not the only one!), I found the drawer template easy to create and assemble. And I managed to measure and cut right the first time! LOL!

So today I'll share a happy Halloween page that I created for PSA Essentials. My October assignments included using the UBU Happy Halloween stamp set. Since we don't do much for Halloween and both of the stamp sets I used for this month's assignments screamed girl, I had to put out a plea to my friends for girlie Halloween pictures! A dear friend of mine offered up photos of her sweetie girl for my scrapbook pages!

A huge thank you to everyone who left comments during the Operation Julie's Smile blog hop. I'm hopeful that the small donations along the way will help Julie fix her emergency dentist issues. I also wanted to mention another hop that is taking place today for Katie Renz. For those who do not know Katie, she is battling cancer. It's a heart breaking situation and the entire family could use your support and prayers. You can read about the hop and Katie's story here (the hop is sponsored by I heart Papers.)
Enjoy! And thank you again for all of your wonderful comments. Please be sure to check out the Katie Renz hop as well...

Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight! Because she is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job of organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of ‘working overtime’ for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an outside job to pay for the work to be done. It is the goal of all of these generous friends & sponsors to help make this situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon. If there is anything you can do to help with a financial donation, there is a donation button ready for you to click. Any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500.
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit, I hope you enjoyed your stay! The next stop is Monika's blog. Make sure you leave a comment here before you go so that you can have a chance at the amazing prizes up for grabs!!

I started with a tree silhouette stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy, Love is Like a Tree set. I used white embossing powder to emboss the image on white cardstock. I then covered the cardstock with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. Once the piece was inked I used a cloth to remove any extra ink from the image and then misted the entire paper with Perfect Pearls. In the photo you can see the shimmer, love it! I used a blending tool to add a bit of black ink to the edges of the paper. I then used the Light of Christmas background stamp to add the script. (Even those this is a Christmas set, the text is small enough to work for any card!)
The side panels simply contain two pieces of designer paper and some velvet ribbon and bling. The sentiment was stamped on a white circle, mounted on a black circle and then I added some faux stitching. The added a few dots of liquid pearls to the paper banner. The finishing touch was a tiny pink butterfly! I really liked this challenge for this week...why don't you check it out!
