Art Freckles October "Go Coastal" Kit Creations

Here are all the goodies I made with the October Art Freckles kit. I made 6 cards, 2 layouts, an altered gift card holder and a mini album. This was such a fun kit to use, and I don't have too much left...5 pieces of chipboard, a few Kaiser pearls, tiny scraps of cardstock and about four 1/2 sheets of paper.

The MME papers are just gorgeous! They are really thick and have a beautiful embossed glitter to them, not super sparkly, just perfect! It's hard to see in photos, but in real!!

There are a few kits still available for sale, you can get them here!

Halloween is Coming!

Well Saturday DD & I were at a fun Halloween crafting get together. It was so nice to spend the afternoon relaxing, crafting and having fun! DD & I were spoiled rotten and here are some of the crafty goodies I came home with (not to mention lots of Halloween candy!)

And...after I got home I finished off this Halloween tree I have been putting together for a little while. I had been looking everywhere for something to put treats in to hang on the tree, so I snagged a couple teeny treat boxes off Shannon's table!

I am also working on some glass jars to fill with Halloween candy and treat bags for the kids, but I'm not done yet.

Oh and I had a great mail day today! I got a big box and a big envy of scrappy stuff, so I spent the afternoon putting everything away. Today I also got my prize from the SavvynSassy online crop. Purple is not really a colour I use often, so I am going to challenge myself to use it!! And I got 10 yards of yummy SNS ribbon for playing Deal or No Deal, so I am spoiled!!

Thanksgiving Weekend

Well it has been a busy, but fun long weekend. Saturday my Mom and the kids and I went on a shopping trip to the States. It could have been a lot more fun if my poor daughter had not been so sick, but we managed. We did lots of shopping and here's all the scrapbooking goodies I bought:

Last night I started working on my October's "Go Coastal" Art Freckle's DT kit. What a delicious kit! It's hard to see the coating of sparkle/glitter on the MME papers in pics, but IRL wow!! I had such a productive night. Got a layout, a card and a gift card holder made with the kit, but you'll have to wait til I'm all done before I reveal them!! The kit is available for sale already, so go check it out!

I also altered these 2 Halloween pails for the kids last night. Of course it was a big argument this morning, they both wanted the orange pail. They were able to settle it by flipping a coin though.

In other news...WeScrap is having a Wicked Halloween online crop October 24-26. Should be a lot of fun!! They are also having a contest for a DT spot, for someone who has never been on a design team before. Check out WeScrap's Next Top Designer info here.

And on the Art Freckle's blog it's week 3 of giveaways already!! You can enter by grabbing an Art Freckle's blinkie and leaving a comment with a link to where you are using it. PLUS the winner of the week 3 draw will be entered into a draw for a free November project kit!! Wowza!! So go get your blinkie!

Cards, Sneak Peek and an Awesome Sale!!

Well I spent about an hour today sorting my paper scraps out. I have a 12x12x6 drawer just full of scraps!! So I am challenging myself to use up some of my scraps by making cards. I am a page layout kind of girl, so making cards is a real challenge for me, takes forever. I actually made 3 Halloween cards today, though I think I would have to make cards non-stop for the next year to use all my scraps up LOL!

The October kit sneak peek for Art Freckles is up right now, so go check it out! I am getting my October kit tomorrow night and I cannot WAIT to start creating with it!!

And tomorrow is the very last day of Kristeena's Crafts going out of business sale. There are not too many products left, but you should definitely check it out. I love a sale!! I have put in 3 orders since she started her closeout sale a couple weeks ago. Her shipping prices are great and she ships quick, though I think she is a bit backed up with all the orders right now.

Chipboard Christmas Tag

Shannon gave a little mini tutorial on how to make these cute swivelling chipboard tags on Art Freckles blog. I had to make one as soon as I read it! I used a plain Bazzill tree chip, added some rubons, a die cut greeting and some ink, then attached it to a green chipboard tag. Too cute! You can check out the instructions here, and when you make yours add it to the Art Freckles gallery for everyone to take a look at.

Don't forget week 2 of giveaways is going on right now, just leave a comment on this blog post.
