Spooky Sweets

Here are some things made with the Spooky Sweets with some pieces from the Toil & Trouble Suite.

This card was made by Lynn Hart.  The background was made by starting out with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  A circle was punched out from a post it note, placed on the Whisper White cardstock, then sponged Night Of Navy, and then sponged with Gorgeous Grape.  The post it note was removed and glittered the moon with Wink of Stella.

Event of the Month – Calligraphy Essentials Kit

Decorative lettering is popular in crafting, but it can look intimidating to re-create. With the calligraphy kit and stamp set you can create gorgeous lettering with ease. This kit is perfect for teaching yourself calligraphy and how simple techniques can take your  cards from whoa to wow!

The calligraphy kit (146783) is a fun activity you can enjoy by yourself or with others so let’s get together for an afternoon or evening of lettering.  All we need to do is plan your event by picking a date and time and ordering your kit ($19) and markers.

Our time together will provide you and your friends an amazing opportunity to learn and practice lettering. There are practice sheets so can build your skills and confidence before creating the samples.

Once you have learned the lettering, you will be able to use the stamp set for future projects. And you should keep the practice sheets to keep practicing and perfecting your new craft.

Please use Host Code (see front page left corner) for orders less than $150 when shopping online and your order will come directly to you.

Toil & Trouble Suite

Last week was the 2018 Holiday Catalog launch which means it’s time to feature a suite.

Since Halloween is next month I thought I would start off with this wonderful suite which can help make your Halloween cards and treats holders quick and easy.

Please stop back to my site later this week where I will show you a few cards made using this suite.

T&T1

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Yes, it’s Halloween, let’s sing!
(Not-Quite-Shakespeare)

Suite Details

Here’s all the great items in this suite.  It even has a bundle which say you 10% off the stamp set and framelits.
