Flashback Friday 4.0 & DT Round-up

Good morning! Is everyone ready for Halloween?
Any fun costume plans? Before you get the party started, I wanted to share some inspiration with you!

First a Reminder:

Now, a "Hello" from Amy:
Oh Amy! Don't you just love her fun use of the Sassafras Lass Count Me In Wee Bundle Papers and those SUPER cute In A Stitch Blossoms!? Click on the picture for more deets! Amy is the queen of commenting, so I bet if you commented on her blog, she'd return the favor!

Here are two clever cards from Jenn:
Jenn always comes up with fun things for this sassy girl from the Kawaii Day Rub-ons to say!

This card is SUPER CUTE with a fun eclectic mix of different papers and embellishments from one of our Sold Out Kits. But, don't be sad, all of our kits are 50% off! So if you you're looking for something Torendi and Eclectic to create with, one of our kits is your best bet!

Next up, is a cutie patootie of a CAS card from Courtney:
Courtney paired the super fun Cosmo Cricket Matilda papers with the ever-so-cute chipboard from the same collection! The papers are sold-out, but the chipboard is ON SALE at 50% off! Click on the photo for my deets!

Here's something fun for your Halloween Table Setting or a lonesome windowsill:
I created this fun little pumpkin decoration using various washi tapes (30mm Kraft Log, Black, and Purple Gingham), wooden skewers, Cosmo Cricket Lavender Bling Chipboard, and some fun Echo Park Happy Halloween papers! If you attempt to make these at home, I highly recommend hot glueing the rosette into place! I used an adhesive called Scrap Dots that worked, but hot glue is the best!

Happy Friday and have a fun Halloween weekend!!!!

Thanks so much Ann, this is fantastic!

Flashback Friday 4.0 & DT Round-up

Happy Friday Blogosphere!

Today, Torendi is sponsoring a SUPER fun challenge, Flashback Friday!

Amy Tsuruta, a current Torendi Setter, started a fun challenge on her blog to encourage bloggers to embrace their earliest creations and this week's challenge is to post your first blogged Christmas card! How fun is that? Click on the banner above to play!

And of course there's a cool Torendi prize up for grabs for those who play along:
Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type and Sassafras Lass Apple Jack stickers!
Hope to see your Flashback Friday posts!

Friday DT Round-up:
This is a work of art Jenn created for a craft show at her local coffee shop! How cool is that!? She used Bam Pop's H is for Halloween and various washi tapes! I love how it looks like a french memo board!

Amy created this ULTRA fun card and titled it "The Sassy Nerd" as it combines some pretty rad Sassafras Lass Nerdy Bird journal tags! Amy added patterned paper to the sticky side of the scalloped border so that when you open the card you can still see the coolness!

I must warn you... Jenn's video that she made for E.A.D. Designs is SUPAH cute! She always wears the coolest hat :) Here is a glimpse at what she makes in the video! Do recognize the wooden stamp set box? It's a Shinzi Katoh stamp set box that she's dressed up with some Copic Tria markers and E.A.D. Designs Stickerz! Check out the giveaway and video HERE!

Courtney created this owl fun-filled card using owls die cut from some Cosmo Cricket Pixie-licious paper! Isn't her design AWESOME! Do add some feminine frill she added a sweet Sassafras Lass Garden Bits chipboard flower!

For my card, I dug into some older Torendi Kits, like the Fresh Mix Kit, and took out this awesome Cosmo Cricket paper that is PERFECT for Christmas! The little clothespin is also from the kit and makes the perfect accent! I've fallen in love with incorporating embroidery on my creations and you can see that I'm embroidered the silhouette of the couples!
