I wanted to share a few pictures of the project this week for our subscribers.
Each page of the book is shaped like a witches hat, with a fancy embellished hat band. Love all of the glittery goodness.

Here are a few photos of another one of our projects for our Fall Workshop Weekend.
It is a great recipe book with hand folded pockets and wonderful paper and embellishments by Crate Paper.
The covers are acrylic and we had so much fun embellishing the book with the fantastic chipboard and button elements. This will make a great Christmas gift- or maybe you won't want to give it away!

Big snag. Our wholesale supplier is out of stock on the paper mache stand up piece- yes you know the foundation of the whole project! She estimates they will have them back in stock around the end of Oct. Hmmm, that doesn't work so well.
We located and ordered some from a retail site but we don't want to post anything for sale until we actually have them in our hands- should be Thursday.
We will have them this weekend at our Community Crop at the library in Issaquah, or to ship out on Friday. We don't want to break the library's rules and so we can't sell anything at the crop this weekend but can make arrangements to purchase and pick up kits from us offsite.

Okay I know it is still September but for this project you want to get started- so we are getting our "Spooky On" a little early.
It is another of our fantastic magnetic countdown calendars- this time with a bit of a twist.
The "calendar" is a stand up paper mache piece- it is 3 panels joined with hinges.
We added sheet metal behind the paper and each of the calendar pieces has a button magnet on the back so Voila! a new kind of magnetic calendar. The indivual panels are about 8 x 11 1/2.
We also decorated the backside with patterned paper and die cut large BOO letters from glittered cardstock.
The best part about this kit is that we did all of the hard work for you! You just need to do the assembly work- everything is die cut and ready to go.
We included LOTS of fun dimensional embellishments and many custom created pieces and die cuts.
