Pumpkin Decor, SNEAK PEEK TIME & New Monthly Release

Hey everyone!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First, I want to tell you about some changes coming to SP starting this month. For our monthly release, we are going to start having the following monthly line up:
1st – 6th: Sneak Peek snippets shown on the SP Blog
7th – 9th: Full project sneak peeks
10th: Monthly Stamp Release & Blog Hop Day

I just wanted the monthly stamp release schedule to be a little bit more streamlined and easier to manage.

So here is your first sneak peek for the November Stamp Release! This month we will be releasing 6 full stamp sets and one single stamp. It is a HUGE release for SP and you are going to be so excited when you see all the new goodies. There will be lots of coordinating cut files released this month also!!

Notice that this sentiment looks an awful lot like one of the SP and Company sentiments that is already available. . . but it is BIGGER 🙂  That’s right! We’re adding some bigger sentiments to SP and Co!!! Many of the lovely SP and Company sentiment stamp sets have a I or a II beside their name, because I plan on releasing more, very similar style sentiments in that sentiment series.

Ahhh! Love new stamp time! Moving on. . .

Today, I am also so excited because I am getting to share my first ever Glue Dots® design team project with you!

 When I think of Glue Dots®, I naturally think of buttons because Glue Dots® work PERFECTLY to secure buttons to your crafty projects (and they are great for sooo many other things too!). I decided to create this adorable pumpkin frame as a festive Halloween/Fall decor project.

Instructions

  1. Cut pumpkin shape out of orange cardstock at approximately 7-8 inches tall. Cut a top out of green cardstock. I cut out the pumpkin here using a die cutting machine, but it could be pretty easily been cut out by hand since it is such a simple shape. Attach the stem with a Pop Up Glue Dot for some extra dimension.
  2. Tie Twine around the stem of the pumpkin.
  3. Using Mini Glue Dots attach a variety of orange buttons to the orange pumpkin. I tried to use a variety of shapes sizes and textures.
  4. Cut background paper to 8 x 10 inches.
  5. Stamp striped paper and cut into a banner shape.
  6. Attach finished pumpkin yo background paper using Craft Glue Dots.
  7. Attach banner using Pop Up Glue Dots for added dimension
