Colouring with DSP | Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to the October edition of the Fancy Friday blog hop!
This month's challenge is to use Designer Series Paper (DSP)!
For this card, I did some paper piecing to showcase and remind you to use DSP as colour on your stamps!!  You need to stamp the DSP and then cut out the image by hand.. Yes, its a little tedious but the effect is awesome!

You have a chance to win by commenting on this blog post and telling me how you like to use DSP.  I will be giving out a sample pack of 4x6 DSP current DSP papers to the lucky winner.  You have until midnight, November 6th MST to play along.  The winner will be announced on November 10th.

Hop along to see what one of my favourite Artisans are up to-


PS. There's still time to join up for my Project Life by Mail PDF kit for November.

My Paper Pumpkin: Sweets & Treats Project #5

It's almost here!!
Halloween... I can. not. wait.

This year will be different.  It's the first year that my little family will focus on trick-or-treating rather than attending parties and visiting family.  There's gonna be bags and bags of candy.  No.  Probably not.  My little boy (2) will be immersed in what's in the bag and wanting to taste every jewel immediately. And I can't blame him...  His sister (4) believes that there's no greater gift than candy.  Let her choose from a castle, a trip around the world and a pack of skittles.  She'll pick skittles any day.

This project was created for the My Paper Pumpkin Challenge.  You only have two days left to link your project up!!  So, get those links ready!
Happy Halloween!!Cathy

This project was created for the My Paper Pumpkin Challenge.

I wanted to move away from the Halloween a little bit and inspire you to use those burlap bags for.. well, something sweet and feminine.

 You still have time to play in the My Paper Pumpkin Challenge so make sure to link up your challenges!

Have a great day!

My Paper Pumpkin: Sweets & Treats Project 3

That kid is CUTE.

He wasn't sure about that wig.

But this was hilarious!! My oh my, how one year as passed!

This is the My Paper Pumpkin for October 2014.  It came with burlap sacks but of course, I had to cut that sucker up and create a background for this pic.  I used some stamps from past kits to stamp behind it as well as the ink pad itself.  Some machine stitching and stickers finished it off.

You still have time to play in the My Paper Pumpkin Challenge so make sure to link up your challenges!

Have a wonderful Sunday! 
I'll be travelling back to Newfoundland from lovely Minnesota.
See you soon kiddos!
