Welcome to the October
We present to you the October kit called
Above you see the contents of the Deluxe kit.
We share with you all kinds of different projects,
like scrapbook lay outs, cards, mini books and more
to inspire you to use the papers and stamps.
I hope you arrived here from
seen her inspiring project and left her some love.
You know, one can never start reading early enoug!
The twins already love reading their books.
This page is made with the digital Literature kit.
(btw. my first digital scrap page!)
And now let's see what else I made for you:
This month we were asked for the Artist Team challenge to
share some gift ideas for the December month. I had so many ideas,
that here are some more gift ideas. My idea for everything is
books and coffee a perfect combination!
So my first project is a box of coasters.
I found some plain looking wooden coasters in the $$ store
that needed to be decorate. Six coasters came in this cute
holder. Everything ready for decoration!
I started with giving all the coasters a layer of
white gesso, which makes stamping so much easier
When the gesso was drie (and that is real quick) I colored
all the sides with brown ink.
Next step is stamping. I stamped with the same brown inkpad.
Not wanting to make all the coasters the same but
all there own look. I used the rubber stamps that came
with the kit. You can see all the stamps HERE.
After everything was stamped all in brown,
I used a blending tool to add some color.
Here a few finished coasters.
I really love the finished look
and will for sure use them (or give them as a present).
My other project for today is the one you can not only
use for December, but all kind of occasions. I found this idea
on pinterest and here is my version of it. On one side
there is a pocket for a pen and a post-it block
of 3 x 3 inch. It can also be a great teacher gift.
On the other side there is a pocket, which
can hold a gift card or a little note.
You can also leave out the pocked and add
a calendar on the other side.
Here is the template with the measurements
of this post-it note gift set.
This is how it looks after the cutting and folding.
Here some more views of how to construct this.
I used the red tape for strong construction.
Of course there are many ways to decorate this
fun little gift, so my way is just to inspire you.
On one I use a ribbon and on the other I used
some of the cut apparts. On the right one I added
the clip that came with the kit, that is perfect for a book clip.
I also found some pens, that I could decorate
with matching paper. For this I printed some
of the papers from the digital Literature kit.
And now for even more inspiration
head over to
and see what see has in store for you.
