We want to wish all of you a happy first day of Fall! We hope that you are enjoying at least a slight cooling of temperatures, changing leaves and crafting for the holiday season! We have such wonderful things to share with you today from crafters all over the country. We love seeing your Halloween, Christmas and every day crafts on our social media channels. There are lots of fun, 3D projects all over today’s post. We are so inspired by the wonderful, creative paper projects that you came up with and shared this week!
Come take a look!
Cynthia said, “Grab a broom and sit a spell. I’ll pour you a cup of Toad Tongue Tea while we discuss what’s brewing on my Halloween Hearth.”
We love how you used the Holiday Hearth Dies for Halloween, clever!
Janice posted, “Jack’s favorite time of the year is coming up, Halloween puts a hop in his step and a twinkle in his eye!”
Dayle wrote, “Treat pouch from the finishing school class Halloween tricks and treat class and a matching card. I had to go spooky as it is for my 10 year old grandson. So hard not to add flowers. All Anna except for glitter.”
Barbie shared, “So I shared this two-page spread yesterday but I needed to add something! This is a Valentines Day card to my mom from my grandpa! (From 1952!). I wanted to add it somehow so I bought some flip flaps. I attached ribbon tabs and also had to make an extra slit in it so each flap would move. Isn’t it just too cute?!!”
Thank you for sharing such beautiful memories!
Yadyra wrote, “Yesterday I made 4 more “card albums”… they are so much fun to make, I love looking at the cards, sorting them and assembling the books. Many more to go but I’m currently working on just the bday cards from 2020, 2021 and 2022.”
Nancy said, “Finished my 2nd box. This time it’s lighted. This is the first time I have put lights in my project. I’m happy with the way it came out.”
Beth shared, “I had been contemplating on transforming the Antique Train Easel Die into a 3D project . After watching FS Live on Friday and watching how to piece the treat box together, I used the same technique on the engine and caboose . For the center car I constructed an open box to house little 3D presents . I decorated all 4 sides of each train car . Using my Cricut I cut out train tracks small gift boxes and a tree from One of Anna’s image sets . Dies used in this project : Antique Train Easel Die, balcony from Castle Easel die , door frame from the Haunted House, door frame from Holiday Open House Craft Box. Stickers used: Mini Snow globe Stickers, Celebration Chest Stickers , Open House garlands , Mini House tree Garlands, Christmas Banner Sentiments.”
This train is amazing, Beth! Your attention to detail is unparalleled!
Mary wrote, “I love the 3D butterfly dies, and insect specimen displays have always been a little bit creepy to me, so that seemed like a good idea for Halloween.”
Great work, everyone! Keep up the great work, and keep posting your projects with us on our social media channels, and we could feature your projects with everyone next week. We want you to be the first to know that we have a very special live show on AGTV planned for Friday, September 30th at 12pm. There will be new product launches, special bundles, a sneak peek, demos and so much more. We hope to see you there!
Bye for now,
