PPP :)

I love Regina's printable stamps - she is the awesome owner & creator of the beautiful images at The Cutting Cafe. This week The Cutting Cafe is sponsoring the sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I chose the wording from the printable set called Autumn Days and made this Fall home decor project. I figured I could make something like this for every holiday and swap them out! Next up Christmas...watch this space :P

We still have a few more days left for our 2S4Y Design Team Call. Details are on the blog.
Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome Monday.

Tattered Angels Blog Relay

Spellbinders teamed up with Tattered Angels to bring you a Blog Relay extraordinaire.  Some of the Spellbinders Design team have made projects using Spellbinders Die-Templates and Tattered Angels Products.  Holly Simoni has a beautiful layout on her blog which you can see at Wild Wyoming Girl.   Next up after me is Karen Taylor who will be revealing her project on Oct 20th, so be sure to bookmark that on your calendar - her work is fabulous.
.
For this project I used the Spellbinders Die-Template S7-051, Holiday Lights Border Grand.  I love how versatile Spellbinders products are - Holiday lights are not just for the Holidays: This Dress Form was inspired by my love for Fashion and Project Runway!
Here is a summary of how I put this look together:
1. Using Tattered Angels divine Glimmer Mist products gently spray even layers onto 12x12 white cardstock.  I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Sand (61130), Candy Apple Red (02752) and Haunted Shadow (61180).  The combination of the three colors created this rosy pink effect with a glimmer of gold - yum!
2. Cut cardstock into 2.5 wide strips.  Run the die-template and sandwich plates through your Wizard.  I cut several strips to complete the skirt.  Starting from the bottom work your way around the torso by adhering strips with adhesive. 
3.  I wanted the bodice to match the skirt so I simply dipped my paint brush into the Glimmer Mist and painted the bodice directly onto the torso. I used all 3 colors and layered them, one on top of the other to complete the look.
4. Finish by lining the neckline with sparkly gems and tying a shimmering bow around the waist.
.
I hope that I have managed to inspire you to use some of your own products in a different & unique way.   Please let me know if you post something on your own blogs - I would love to stop by.  Have a fantastic weekend.   See you all Monday.

Take care

Bitten by the Bug Monster & Tattered Angels Sneak

This week I was super excited to participate with the other Designers from Bitten by the Bug in the Paper Dolls Monster Challenge.  It is such a darling little cut and fits in perfectly with the Halloween favors I got for Alex's school.  You can see the gorgeous little monsters that the other designers created at Bitten by the Bug
Spellbinders and Tattered Angels are taking part in a blog relay and this is my sneak peak for you.  I will do my full reveal of my project on Saturday.  Can I just say that Glimmer Mist is a fantastic product which I can certainly get slightly addicted too *wink*!

Have a fantastic easy slide into the weekend
