I would love for you to pop over to the Maya Road Blog and check out a couple of my projects for the upcoming Quilt Show! I had so much fun creating hoops and wreaths, and I have some great ideas for simple and elegant decor!
This month some of the design team at Carta Bella made projects for the digital issue of Create Magazine. It was so much fun working with their sketches and combining the beautiful lines from Carta Bella! I made a card and a tag. Here is a link to the issue. Its free!
The latest PRINT special issue from Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine is now available! Cool Tools Vol. 2 is such a great issue! Incredibly creative ways to use the tools that you have sitting in your crafty space right now! Just look at the cover! Who still has a paper crimper hidden in a box? Be honest. :) That EAT wall hanging would be perfect in anyone's kitchen!
This is one of my projects in the issue. I love the flower on this card. I used a set of dies from Sizzix and Susan Tierney-Cockburn, called Sunflower. Her line of dies is gorgeous! It creates all sorts of flowers, but look at how realistic! Combine the dies with her Garden Tool Kit and you will be able to create works of floral art! The Garden Tool Kit is essential for people who die cut. All the tools help add heaps of dimension and interest with ease!
And while we are talking about publications, I want to encourage you to submit. Yes, you! Right now Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine has a call out for stamped projects. The PRINT special issue will be called Stamp & Ink. They are looking for amazing stamped projects. Projects with techniques. Awesome techniques!

One last look at the fantastic October release from My Favorite Things! The design team is showing off a last few projects to inspire you while you wait for your order, or maybe just convince you to pick up that one last item!

Still thinking Christmas tree ornaments from yesterday's projects, I got to thinking about the small chalkboard ornaments I began creating for my tree last year. Die-namics Stitched Rectangles works perfectly to create the look!
By placing both dies onto my Wild Cherry cardstock, securing them in place with low-tack tape, I passed them through my manual die cutting machine at the same time. Once done, it created this great little pocket! When you adhere this to your card, be sure and only place the glue or foam adhesive around the edges, allowing your gift card to fit.
