September Card SKETCH!

This month,   Cassonda Tadlock has done a really simple card sketch for us.. which I think is perfect for the start of a busy school year! Plus the design is so versatile as far as what products you could use for the circles coming down the side of the card (buttons, brads, rhinestones, chipboard shapes, you  name it!).. lots of possibilities here! Thanks girl for this fun inspiration! .

  Remember to post your cards using her sketch in our NEW gallery! Yeah! I am so excited to finally have a members gallery.. so lets see your past and present cards from her sketches! See you over there :).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

so.. I don't know if you remember or not.. but a few newsletters back I mentioned I was going to make a Halloween Photo Carousel.. using the Photo Carousel Rounders from 7Gypsies (on that particular day my Sister in Law's website  www.peachycheap.com was having it as their one day item.. for only $19.99 and it normally retails for $40.00!  so  I purchased one of course! LOL ) and .. I had shared this idea to create a Halloween rounder, that included all of the past pictures from my children's Halloween .(and even old photos of my husband and I before we were married)...  along with stories of past memories and also fun tidbits about Halloween and scary Halloween ghost stories! I wanted it to be something just fun for them to look at through the month of October.. and just remember the holiday.. as the month went by..

So this past weekend.. I attended a local crop we had here in Idaho Falls, at I Scrap,  for all of our local Scarlet Lime subscribers (BIG shout out to all of you who came.. and made it a WONDERFUL time for me!!!).. and the project I worked on was the Halloween Rounder!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wasn't quite sure how to go about tackling it at first.. as I had over 100 photos that I wanted to use.... so I decided to first take each photo and paste it (along with a little bit of patterned paper) onto each index card (just photos and paper, no embellishments)..  I thought this would be easier, so I wouldn't have all of my embellishments and papers out at the same time.. and it seemed to work out great! I used papers from the new Chatterbox Artsylicious line, the  Cosmo Cricket Halloween line, and Teresa Collins new Halloween line (all so perfect for this!)   After I got that step done, I put away the papers and started working on embellishing each  photo card..
 

 

 

 

I had been searching the internet for the last couple of weeks trying to find the perfect products to use on this project, as I wanted a very "vintage" feel to it.. and so I was SO happy a couple of weeks ago,  when my SIL, Brooke,  at peachycheap posted this all in one Halloween kit .. which included ribbons, stickers, buttons, chipboard alphas, and more from Daisy's D's Vintage Harvest Halloween line.. it was their one day item and all for only $14.99! (the picture is at right).. of course I jumped on it before it sold out    and it ended up being PERFECT to use for the project! It had so much stuff in it! Plus it had the very vintage feel I wanted but some color as well..   I also mixed in more of the Artsylicious line from Chatterbox (that line is seriously so delicious! LOL).. and some "bling" from Heidi Swap.. and I love how the pages I finished turned out! Here are just a few of the ones I finished..  Colorful but still with a vintage feel..

 

 

 

 

 

I still have so much to do, I have only about 15 of the 100 photo index cards completely embellished.. and I also found these cute little vintage postcards from Daisy D's, as well as journaling cards from Teresa Collins and 7gyipes.. (you can see the picture down below at the right)..   I plan to use these cards to  journal on and place intermixing throughout the rounder between the photo cards.. I wanted the project to have a very mixed media feeling, with pictures, stories, journaling.. and more (I even have pocket folders, I plan to put recipe cards in with fun Halloween goodie recipes).. I hope to have it done by the first part of October.. I will keep you posted on my progress! 

 

 

Okay.. so the gals at the crop on Saturday night.. were SO jealous of the fun little Vintage Halloween Kit I bought from www.peachycheap.com  that when I was up at my SIL's house a couple of nights ago for my nephews birthday party, . I asked her if by ANY chance she had any of them left or could order more of them.. because I wanted to give one of them away in my newsletter tonight.. . I also told her there were several girls at the crop Saturday night that wanted some.. and so begged her to try and order some more.. well.. Being the WONDERFUL Sister in Law that she is.. she of course said she would get right on it.. but since their website only offers products once.. she said she would do a special listing of the vintage kits (as well as some of the 7 Gypsies Carousel Rounders) on her Etsy site.. www.tatteredtags.etsy.com .. she JUST listed them tonight.. and only you guys know about them.. but they are limited.. so make sure you jump right over and get them before they are out!  Remember, they won't be listed on her peachy cheap website.. ONLY her Etsy site.. which is www.tatteredtags.com .  Also.. normally they don't ship internationally.. but she said she gets so many request from our Scarlet Lime Customers to ship international as well,  that for this week only,  they are going to offer these (plus  some of their past peacycheap deals.. from the past month) to all my Scarlet Lime international customers.. PLUS  combined shipping...  So for international customers who want to view the past products you can purchase.. here  is the link

www.peachycheap.com/rss.builder.php

 They will combine shipping on any of these products, so to find out prices and combined shipping totals,   e-mail them at support@peachycheap.com .

 

Thanks Brooke for doing this! YOU ROCK!
