Get Ready for a Blog Hop!!!

Good Morning fellow cropstars! I’m just here today to give you heads up about a special blog hop starting on August 29th.

My friend and fellow teammate at both Party Time Tuesdays and (formerly) Paper Makeup Stamps, Jen Scull was diagnosed with cancer some time ago. It has been a long and often difficult journey for Jen and her family thus far – with much left to go.

So, all of us here in crafty blog land who are friends and teammies of Jen have banded together for a blog hop full of fun, PRIZES and lots of support for our crafty friend in need.

I was so inspired by Jen’s continued strength and sweetness that I drew a special digital stamp entitled “Fighting Lyla” for the occasion.  It will be offered as a PRIZE along with lots of other awesome stuff donated by some wonderful businesses.

The hop starts on August 29th at Paper Makeup Stamps’ blog!

I hope you till join us! Also, if you want to help support Jen and her family, please go over to The Paper Makeup Stamps Store and buy Jen’s Digi set – the proceeds all go to her family. : )

Thanks so much everyone! See you on Hop day!

Good morning! Here again to bring you some more DCWV inspiration for this month! I had a great time playing with some of the non-traditional Halloween colors in the Bewitched Stack!  Take a look:

Bewitching Place Setting–DCWV

Hello! Here today with another DCWV post featuring The Bewitched Stack , new to DCWV for the 2012 Fall season!


I made this placemat using two coordinating 12x12 papers and weaving them together, then I bound the ends with strips of paper that I had left over.


This tag could include the menu for the party, a name, or just a cute saying as I have here. It just sits on top of the mat until chow time and can then be removed and taken home as a favor. : )


There are two pages of tags in this stack that can be cut out and used to create embellishments.  Here I have used one of those tags to embellish the napkin roll. A bow and some bling make a truly special home for your silverware.


Here I used an inexpensive plastic martini glass, some paint and stickles to create a matching spiderweb cup, accented with another tag from the stack.  The candle is easily put together by rolling pieces of cardstock from The Bewitched Mat Stack and glueing them around a plain flameless candle.  Complete the look with a sweet and spooky bow.
