Wait until you see....

what I have to show you today! These first two projects were made with Spellbinders dies. One would make an awesome page border, the other is 3-D and would be a great project to do with your kids.

Ms. Mary with Spellbinders was with us at the last convention conducting Spellbinders demos in the booth and she made this...

Isn't that great?! Ms. Mary used the limited edition nesting Pumpkins and the 12" On the Vine Border. After she cut the vine border, she left the cut in the die and shaded it using the Copic Airbrush system.Not only could you use this as a page border, but you could use a shortened version of it on a card front with coordinating envelope too!

This next project comes from our friend, Corrine. Corrine used her Scallop Circle Nestabilities to create this 3-D pumpkin.

You could make these up and use them on your table for Thanksgiving decorations. Or, you could go one step further and cut leaves and add names to them then tie them to the top of the pumpkin and use them for placecards!

A big thanks to Ms. Mary and Corrine for sharing your wonderful projects with us!

Even though they don't celebrate Halloween, Veroinca couldn't resist the ghoulish temptations and the new digital designs.

Veronica used her Silhouette to cut all the elements for her layout. She used a plain colored cardstock and misted it to create a custom background. Isn't it cute, oh, um, I mean spooky?! LOL!

Have you seen the Unity October Retailer KOTM yet? It's so darn cute! It is up on the site and will begin shipping to you this week. If you haven't snagged one for yourself yet you can get it HERE.

Our friends at Unity are having a Blog Hop this weekend showcasing this wonderful kit. It will begin on Saturday and if you want to follow along you can start HERE. Even if you're not really into stamping, I would encourage you to check it out. I promise you will get TONS of ideas and look at it this way, a stamped image is simply an element. If you don't want to stamp it, die cut it! It's so easy to substitute elements to make your project yours!

We sure hope you're having a great week and we appreciate you stoppin' by. We'll be back on Friday with more projects and an all new sketch! Take care and we'll see you then!
