Happy Halloween

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a super fun Halloween card! Did you know that yetis go trick or treating? This little yeti didn't even make it to the front doorstep before it was spooked by a group of ghosts. This haunted house was just too scary, luckily no candy was lost in the frantic running.

Materials Used:
Critters in Costume
Happy Haunting
Hats Off to You
Yeti Set Go

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

FIT Design Team Call Update

Laurel here!  HOLY COW!! Can we just say, HOLY COW! What a response we got!!!! So many submissions, which is a great thing but it sure makes it hard for us to pick!  It will take us some time to sort thru all the submissions, so we will be back as soon as  we can with our decision.

The term will start in January and will run 6 months.  After 6 months, we will say goodbye to our current designers and welcome in six new designers and continue with the 6 month terms going forward.  So there is lots of opportunity here in the future....

With that being said, while we are looking thru the submissions for the available spot we have now, we will be making note of the 6 designers we would like to invite for our next term. Yes, it is silly because it doesn't start until July of 2015, but since we have gotten so many submissions with this call,  we won't be doing another FIT Team call again..... Of course, we understand that you might not be available or even interested in July of next year which is totally understandable, lol!  We Lawnscaping gals like to plan ahead I guess!

You guys are amazing. You rock! And your talent is outta this world awesome! Thanks to ALL OF YOU who submitted! :)

Oh!!!  We will also use this call to pick our monthly guest designers from!!! :) We have openings beginning in January.

Halloween Shaker Card + Video


I love to make shaker cards, so I thought the current challenge would be the perfect excuse to make one!  I used the Monster Mash stamp set along with patterned paper from the Into The Woods collection.  You can check out how to make your own shaker card in my video below!

I die cut the hexagons out of the patterned paper and glued acetate to the back.  I then added foam squares to the back and poured in my sequins.  The background is just a piece of purple card stock.

I colored in the "monsters" with my Copic markers and added a few sequins to the front of the card.  I can't wait to see all of your creations from the current challenge!

Have a great day!
