Happy October Papertrey release day! All of the new goodies have been added to the store and I know many of you have already placed your orders and are anxiously awaiting their arrival on your doorsteps!
To tide you over until they get there, I've got lots of projects to share with you. Today I'll share the projects using the sets I haven't featured here yet. And then I've got quite a few extras this month that I hope to share over the next few days, so stay tuned! Complete supply lists for today's projects can be found in the Papertrey Ink gallery.
First off....Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers. I decided to continue on with my tradition of filling the jars with crazy things...last month it was button eyeballs...this month is pom-pom snowballs. Such fun things Miss Mishie has created, this jar series.
I just used plain old white pom-poms and rubbed a bit of liquid adhesive, then sprinkled them with micah flakes for a bit of snow-dusted shimmer.
Next, I combined several new sets on this card...the tags are from Fillable Frames #9, the snowmen from Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers and the sentiment from MSS: Journaling Circle.
I chose a sentiment for the inside that is from Holiday Wishes...I thought it went perfectly with the family theme of the card!
Next is a set of gift card holders using Holly Jolly....
The gift card holders are created by adhering a Tag Sale #1 diecut to a small glassine bag. There is a window cut through the tag and the bag using the circle from the new Limitless Layers die set.
In this diecut window, I suspended diecut snowflakes and stars on baker's twine...I think it gives them just that little extra touch of fun. There is a stamped piece of cardstock inside each bag that the gift card can be adhered to, or attached using a slit punch.
Next up is On Ice. I just love this set and have a few more ideas rolling around in my head for this set...can't wait to use it some more!
Next is Merry Little Christmas. I had such fun playing with this set...I created a tree swing for the little birds and added musical notes from Birds of a Feather...
I added red pearls to the tree to give it some pops of color and bits of micah flakes as snow....
And last, but not least is Year of Flowers: Marigolds with the vibrant, fallish card. Marigolds always seem to give that vibrant burst of color to gardens and flower pots and I wanted to convey that feeling with this color saturated card.
The marigolds in the background are stamped and shaded with chalks.
