Tags, Labels and Papers, Oh My! ***GIVEAWAY***

As you may or may not know, September 22nd was the first official day of fall. Kris has been at the drawing board and has come up with four new sets plus a set of papers that would be perfect for a fall themed project or any time for that matter. We're going to showcase most of them now but we'll be back later today with one more. 

First up is a great new set of digi papers that features a few woodland characters you might be familiar with...

Lisa Lynn has created this sweet card using papers from this set along with some other IT! DS goodies...

Also used: Acorn Bunny & Squirrel Currently a freebie) and Sweet Patels Digi Paper Pack
The next set we're featuring is a blank tag and label set that can be used for almost any occasion. Whether you leave the tag blank to add a handwritten personal message, or you choose to add a digital sentiment before printing, it is completely up to you. You could also paper piece them to add a little colour and / or pattern. Those of you with a cutting machine may even be able to make them into full size cards or add them to other projects. They can also easily be fussy cut and added to gifts. The ideas are endless and totally up to you!

Donna has created this sweet Christmas card using a label from the set along with some other IT! DS goodies...


Susan made this lovely tag as part of a set (the rest you'll see below) using elements from the Tags & Labels set along with a paper from another set...

The next two sets contain several pre-made tags and labels featuring some cute little critters.

What is your favourite woodland animal? 
  I would have to say I'm a fan of many woodland animals but my favourite is probably the chipmunk. There is just something so sweet about those adorable creatures! Especially when there little cheeks are completely stuffed!

Farewell to our 3rd Quarter Designers!

Hello to you all! It is the fourth Tuesday in September and that means it is time for the final Guest Designer Showcase for this third quarter of the year. Very soon you'll be seeing two brand new faces joining us but for right now, Hélène and Julie are here one last time to share their creations with you all as Guest Designers. Let's see what they have in store for us, shall we?!


Hélène has two projects to share. One made especially for today's post and the other,
a recent make that is already on her blog. First up, check out her newest creation...

Hélène created this festive fall tag using the pumpkin and sentiment from

She has also used a paper from the Fabulous Fall pack (link & preview above),

You can find the direct link to this particular card by clicking HERE.

Julie created this bright and colourful card using several items from...


Julie's based her card on the Easy as 1, 2, 3 theme we have for our current challenge. Julie's 1-2-3 items include: one die cut branch, two birds and three designer papers. You still have until Friday night to enter the challenge! For full details and the link up, be sure to click HERE!

It has been an absolute treat to have Hélène and Julie as our Guest Designers these past three months. You can find more lovely creations from these talented ladies by visiting them on their personal blogs. Simply click the respective blog siggies found above in order to find them. 

Interested in being a Guest Designer during an upcoming quarter? Leave us a comment, contact us using the contact form found at the bottom of the sidebar, or simply add GDT after your name if you join us during a challenge!

Now you are going to notice some changes around here starting in October. One of those changes is that for the most part, we will no longer be having dedicated posts to the Guest Designers. Instead, we'll be adding their projects to a weekly inspiration post. We do have two new guests scheduled to join us in October so I hope that you'll check out their work at that time.

Oh and heads up...we've got some new sets being released later today so be sure to come back to check them out!

For now, happy crafting until we meet again!

Pterodactyl Happy Birthday

Here is another sample of a 
soft & simple card that I made using the
pre-colored image of Pterodactyl Banner.
This can be for a child or a time-worn adult.
I just love the pastel colors and put them with some metallic papers.

Watch for some new releases tomorrow - YIPEE!  And remember with the new releases to leave comments for a chance to win.
