This pretty pumpkin die cut is made using the Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set and the Beautiful Branches Thinlits.  I adhered the pumpkin on a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock which is embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder.  To add a little more dimensional look, I sponged the embossed image with a touch of Crumb Cake Ink.  I love how it turned out:)

CPC Put a Lid on it!

 Happy Friday everyone!  I am so excited to share another great project from Craft Project Central.  Today's project is designed by Buffy Cooper.

Craft projects using Mason jars are so trendy and fun. But sometimes your craft table gets littered with lids and jar rings that you didn’t need for projects. In this tutorial, you’ll learn two ways to use those lids and rings for adorable home décor and gift items. The jar ring banner is perfect for Christmas, New Year, or even a birthday or other celebration. And the jar lid coasters can be a fun, useful, yet inexpensive gift for friends on your gift list. These projects would be a nice stamp camp if offered together, or two separate classes.

Craft Project Central Holiday Framed Art

Happy November everyone!  Today is the DAY that I get to tell you about my new adventure!  Recently I was asked to be a guest designer this month for Craft Project Central.  It is an incredible honor and I am so thrilled to be working with Craft Project Central throughout this month to share sneak peeks of ten amazing projects and one bonus project, each designed by a different designer.  My project will be featured a little bit later this month.  

The first project this month was created by Regina Andari


It’s time to think about holiday décor, and you’ll be off to a great start with this tutorial.  Create a festive framed work of art comprised of six individual panels that are easy to make and possess enough interest and detail that will have your guests taking more than just a quick glance.  Since you’ll probably be going to some holiday parties or dinners, go ahead and make a few of these framed projects so you’ll have a fantastic gift for a hostess (or two).  This tutorial even includes a coordinating card!
