Craft Hoarders Blog Hop for October

It's time again for the Craft Hoarders to share lots of projects with an anything goes theme
this month.  Each of us has created something special from all those crafty things we
have in our stashes to give you a little inspiration to create something for yourself.
Today i have a really fun project i made for me.  It's a Starbucks recipe book
with cards from all my friends and their favorite drinks and goodies they like to eat.
I have gone in so many times and listened to their orders but i can't remember
a single one... so an idea was born.


I used the Barista paper line from Basic Grey and it was perfect for this project.
The stickers had fun little coffee images and i filled the other in with some
letter stickers from Ruby Rock-it and bits of their Wood Veneers
with words on them.  So over the moon excited about this!!

Each of the pages is different and has places to slide the recipe cards in for
the coffee and tea ideas and some yummy goodies to bake to go with them.

The tiny letters were some of my favorite things to use and are from
Ruby Rock-it.  They have lots of sizes in each pack and are the perfect
size to use for cards and other fun things like this book.

 My Supply List is:
Pine Cone Press Calendar, Basic Grey Barista 6x6 pad and stickers, brads; Ruby Rock-it
Alpha Stickers and Wood Veneers; Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Dots
permanent tape; Really Reasonable Ribbons seam binding and twine; scissors, paper
trimmer and other little goodies i found tucked away :)

Crafty Secrets Challenge and Blog Hop for October

Welcome to the October Crafty Secrets Linky Challenge and Blog Hop.  Our theme this month
is Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart.  The design team was challenged to create a
Thanksgiving themed project or a project that expresses thankfullness and gratitude.  We
hope that you will join us for the hop, and then visit the Crafty Secrets Blog where you
can find a free download and details for entering the challenge yourself.

I have been doing lots of sorting in my craft room lately and found
this huge jar from IKEA that i had bought and got this great idea to do
a Thankful jar for Thanksgiving and before.  I have had this on my to do list
for a long time and finally got one done... i am so happy.

So for my jar i created a pretty band around the center using leaf papers from
 the Halloween #4 CD and lots of ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons.
The little Blessed and Grateful tags are from the CS and i cut them
apart and tucked them in the ribbons on the front.  On the top i used tiny
adhesive block letters and wrote 40 days of Thanks and Praise.  And now
i just have to make 40 slips of paper to write on and fill up my jar.  

Here is the order of the Design Team in case you want to hop along with us....

Fun little Halloween Banner from CS

Happy Tuesday and thank you for taking the time to stop over.  I am getting in the mood
here for Halloween and fall since we finally changed seasons and i made up another
cute little banner to decorate the house.  

It's always hard to get a good photo so i did a few closeups too so you can
see all the cute papers and other goodies that i used for it.  I mixed lots of 
Halloween prints and colors to match the little pictures and lots of ribbons
to tie on the tulle that i laced it with.  I wanted to make something bright
and different and i really like the way this came out.

All of it was done with the Halloween CD #4 from Crafty Secrets and i used
a few dies to cut the papers to give it a little more pizazz!!  The cute little images
are from the CS Creative Scraps that i cut apart.  Then i added lots of cute ribbons
from Really Reasonable Ribbons new halloween set and that was it.  I hung it
it up by the door with lots of other fun goodies to be ready for trick or treaters.

Hope you have fun making something for your house too and thanks
so much for stopping by... have a wonderful day :)

Fun Crafty Secrets Halloween Set

I love the fall season with all the gorgeous colors and everything else that goes
along with it.  And since Halloween is just around the corner i decided to make
up a few of the fun little treat boxes and a wall hanging from the CS
Halloween CD #4 that you can print out yourself for family and friends.

So my first project to share is the cute little pumpkin girl door hanger
that i created.  It's just layered paper and ribbons but it's a fun little festive
piece of art i can add to my house to make it more festive.  All the papers
and the image was printed from the CD i added a little bit of orange and
green stickles to make it shine more.  

And this cute little house is already printed with all those cute little
images on it and all you have to do is scor it and cut it out.  It's super cute!

And this little treat box is the same... and it was so easy to do.  The best
part is you can print lots of them so that you can pass them out to everyone.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge for September

It's time again for another fun challenge over on the RRR challenge this month.  This
time the theme is "Orange you glad it's Autumn" and it was super fun and easy
with all the amazing ribbons they have to sell in the store.

I used two of the new ribbons that you get in the September Ribbon club Assortment 
as my oranges and papers from Crafty Secrets Halloween CD #4.  It
was fun to layer all the papers and that cute little image i printed and
since i did my own papers i can make lots of them to send out this year.

Be sure and check out all the other cute samples up on the 
Really Reasonable Challenge this month and enter one of yours
for a chance to win some of these amazing ribbons too.

Have a wonderful day...Teresa

Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop for September

It's time again for a fun peek into Halloween this year with all the girls from the RRR Design Team today.  I have a cute little book that i made up for this year to put some fun photos of our adventures.

So if you are following the hop than you should have arrived from "Karen's blog"....
and now we can get started on my project for today

I dug deep in my stash for a few things to create this little book with these stickers
with Linus from the Great Pumpkin show.  I used papers from a We R  6x6 paper pad and
decorated each page to add photos in.  It's alot of different bits and pieces but the ribbons 
from the "Ribbon Club Assortment" really set it off on the side.

Here is a quick closeup of the clock and the stickers.

And here is a photo of the ribbons that we have this month!

All of them were so fun to use and I know that you will find lots
of fun candy wraps and boxes to use your extra ribbons up too...

Be sure and hop on over to "Jenn's blog" to see what she did and i hope
you get lots of fun ideas from our hop this month to do for your family!
