I thought it was appropriate to kick off November with some great Christmas samples and I have some fun Halloween Photos and links at the end of this post. I’m also excited to tell you past DT member Anna Wight is our November Design Guest and Lisa Zappa will be returning as our Dec DT Guest! A big thanks to our Oct DT Guest Sheila Rumney!
Anna just received her goodies and whipped up some adorable samples today using our Christmas Creative Scraps. I love the way she used her Sissix tag die with vintage sheet music and added the glitter and Glimmer Mist!
Anna joined our Design Team in 2007 and for over 2 years we were lucky to enjoy her Crafty Secrets projects along with photos and stories of her life on the farm in Texas - so we are thrilled to have her back as a guest designer this month and I so looking forward to seeing what she creates with our new Down on the Farm set and Farm Chicks (not available yet).
You can see another wonderful Christmas Snowman Tag and get all the details HERE on Anna's blog and be sure to check out her photography and her line of Whipper Snapper stamps. See Anna's Crafty Secrets Gallery HERE!
Now look at this very adorable card DT member Pam Hooten created using our new Christmas Mail stamp set and the Dec month from our Calendar Scraps. I adore the way Pam paper pieced a colorful suit for Santa, gave him a nice white beard, a sparkly hat and all her other details! You can get the list and see a close up photo HERE on Pam's blog.
Check out these cute Christmas postcards posted on the blog for Create & Decorate Magazine! They also have some fun Halloween postcards that Bev and Isabelle created using our Halloween and Christmas Vintage Postcard Kits. I love the way they used the little chipboard embellishment pieces in the kits and added glitter wire, bells and distressed the edges. You can see more samples HERE on their blog and how they stamped the backs of their postcards
If you are looking for quick & easy Christmas card ideas I spotted this set that DT leader Vicki Chrisman created last year using images from our Christmas Image Booklet with assorted scraps of paper and ribbon. You can see each card and get the details HERE on Vicki's blog!
Look at the sweet card DT member Julie Campbell created with a post HERE for her mother's birthday. Julie used our Thinking of You Clear Art Stamp set with the little Dolly Dingle girl and her kitty. I collect these old antique drawings and we just released Little St Nick and have others in the works! You can also see Julie's beautiful friendship card HERE!
Okay, now for a few cute Halloween photos of DT members pets! Here is Michele Kovacks dog Skipper and you gotta love that fashionable hat! You can also see a sweet Halloween card Michele posted HERE on her blog with one of my fav little witches from our Halloween Image Booklet.
Here are Vicki's 2 partners in crime, Ally dressed up like a pumpkin
and here is Molly as a little lady bug.
And here are posts to more Halloween projects that I wanted to share
by our other talented DT Ladies!
Signing off I have a photo of our little devil and company mascot Otis. I'm happy to tell you he loves the healthy dog biscuits I've been making and a spoonful of pure coconut oil everyday - and he's lost over 10 lbs! Oops, this is last years photo because I was out and didn't take one but I will post one asap as everyone says he looks so much younger and he skips when he walks, which is not bad for an old diabetic doggie!
PS - I will be back this week with a Splitcoast Challenge and a Kewpie Post!
Wishing you joy & creativity!
