Good morning and....

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a fabulous week so far. Wednesday, as most of you know, is known as "With us Wednesday" here on the Scrap-Mart blog. I have some great projects to share with you today that were created by our readers.

First up is this awesome Treat Caddy PJ created.

And here's a view from the top...

There are hundreds of possiblities when it comes to this treat caddy! You could make and stuff it for a Baby Shower, Wedding Shower, Christmas present or even a Birthday present. PJ stuffed it with treats and gave it to her daughter's coach as a thank you gift. I DO have the directions for this treat caddy in a PDF file so if you are interested email me and I'll send it to you. It is super easy to make and I promise you'll really love the finished product!

This next project I'm going to share with you was made by Pink Paislee design team member, Carole.

Carole used the awesome Pink Paislee Twilight collection to create this "boo-tiful" project. She used various sizes of wooden letters for the 'boo' and the ghost was made out of one of their new canvas tags. For the 'welcome', Carole used the Expression Glitter Alphabet in Limeade. You can read more about how she created this project HERE. I just love the wiggly eyes poking out from behind! We carry Pink Paislee products in our convention booths so

I believe I promised to share another project with you from Eva today as well. Remember, Eva is a guest designer for Unity Stamps this month and she has been kind enough to share some projects with us as well. This project doesn't use any Unity but it does showcase Spellbinders Nestabilities.

Eva created this card by folding her piece of background cardstock before cutting it and placing the die so the cutting edge of one side extended just beyond the fold. That way, when it passed through the machine only 3 edges were actually cut leaving the folded edge in tact, therefore, creating her card base. Eva used the Curved Rectangle Megabilities to make her card base. Then cut two more of those shapes to use as mats on the front of the card. Isn't it pretty? I'm thinking this would make a great Christmas card! Here's a video Jenn did a while back to show you how easy it is to die cut on the fold.

Thanks so much for stoppin' by today! I hope you've enjoyd the projects we shared. We will be back on Friday with reader layouts from last week's sketch and an all new Friday sketch. Enjoy what's left of your week and we'll see you then!
