Stamping and the Great White North

DT alumni Lynda Benden made this coaster using our Geese stamp.  It’s time to start thinking about those hand-made gifts you promised yourself you’d make this year – this is a great idea!

And the great white north?   Well, lately I’ve been listening to my Itunes music as I work, trying to weed out those songs that make me wonder “What Was I Thinking” when I copied it?   I’m something of a hoarder when it comes to songs on Itunes.  I hear a song I like, on the radio, in a movie, or I’ll admit it – on The X Factor,  and I get the CD from the library and to save time I just copy the whole CD.   So, I’m weeding.   But this also gives me a chance to hear songs that just bring a big grin to my face or have me dancing around the shop.   Today it was “Take Off” – remember?   Doug and Bob McKenzie?  Beauty eh?  Here’s a link in case you need a reminder…if you’re a child of the 80’s I dare you not to grin and sing along!

Halloween Candy Pouch

Halloween projects are a great way to break out of the card-making “box”.  So many great projects that are just a step away from what you’re used to doing on your cards!    Here’s an adorable candy pouch that Miriam Napier created for the SS DT Halloween challenge this week.     She simply added a tag made using the new Ghost With Pumpkin.

All Halloween Stamps and Dies are 20% Off Through Sept 26th.
