Amazing Paper Grace October Kit Revealed!

It's Amazing Paper Grace Kit time again!!!  I love this time of the month when we all get to see Becca's new release in it's entirety and let me tell you her October Kit is unbelievably gorgeous!  I was able to create my card using Becca's exclusive JustRite stamp set called It's Sew Vintage and her exclusive Spellbinders die template set called, Vintage Frame Label and Spool Topper!

Becca's kit is filled with so many goodies to make the most stunning projects ever.  You can find all the details of the Kit and pricing here:

Of course once you have used the pretty paper and embellishments from the Kit you still have those stamps and die templates to use over and over again.  The JustRite design team have teamed up to show you additional ways to use those stamps and dies

Thank you so much for joining me today.  It's a little cooler in Colorado so I think once I get the girls off to school I may just put on a pot of fresh coffee and enjoy some Me-Crafty-Time :) Hope you can do the same!

Fall Decor Project: Stamped Candle

Fall decor adds a certain warmth and comfort to our home as the temperatures drop here in Colorado.  I thought today's project is not only perfect for our home but would make a wonderful hostess gift too.  It is really so easy to make and the end results look totally professional!  

I created this gorgeous decorative candle with a new stamp from JustRite Papercraft called

The trick here is to not stamp on the candle itself but rather onto white tissue paper.  After heating the tissue paper onto the candle with a heat gun the layer of wax under the tissue paper melts into the tissue creating the illusion that the candle has been stamped on ;)  Here's how...

Supplies: Autumn Damask Background Stamp, Ink, Tissue Paper, Candle, Fall Floral Embellishment from Michaels, Ribbon

1. Stamp background design directly onto tissue paper.
2. Trim the paper
3. Add a dab of glue to the corners and lightly adhere it to the candle (I needed two panels to wrap around my candle)
3. Heat the tissue with a heat gun.  The layer of wax under the paper will melt into the paper.

Once again the JustRite Team has provided a host of gorgeous projects using this stamp set...

Vintage Inspired Trick-or-Treat Bag

We are definitely feeling the effects of Fall here in Colorado and that means Halloween is just around the corner.  I love making vintage inspired Halloween projects so when JustRite Papercraft revealed their September release which includes this Lace Background stamp I had my mojo on!

To make my vintage inspired Trick-or-Treat bag I stamped the Lace Background onto white cardstock and then hand cut the center panel out to form a window for my image.  I embellished the bag with patterned paper, glitter, chipboard, ribbon, feathers and Want-2-Scrap bling.

The JustRite Design Team have come together with ideas to use this stamp in a variety of different themes.  Love the versatility of this baby :)
