Special Guest Dana Kirby

Hi THD fans!  Today we have another amazing guest designer joining us on the blog.  Ms. Dana Kirby!  She was the winner of Challenge 15! and she has some holiday inspiration to share.


This first card features Lawn Fawn's Pumpkin Spice Latte set as well as some Echo Park holiday paper.  It is so fun, in love with the colors and layout. The scalloped edge is so sweet. 


She also created this fun card and gift card holder!  The embossing folder is Echo Park and the stamp set is Lawn Fawn Love you a Latte.  The black is just so bold for a holiday set but it works so well!  Perfectly cute Dana and thank you for joining us with these amazing creations!

You can find more of her fun creations on Instagram here,

Thanks for you visit!

For You



Seriously, what's not to love about squirrels and acorns?!  Hey, this is Amy here with you today sharing a fall inspired project.

I've been wanting to ink up the Neat & Tangled - My Favorite Nut stamp set.  I combined it with the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags stamps.


That little baggie is from my stash.  I was digging around and found it all by its lonesome and thought it matched wonderfully with my color palette.

Don't forget about the current challenge, there's still time to join in the fun!



Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome week!

Stretching your dies!

Hi Friends!  Katie here with another fun card for this month's THD challenge!  Here is our fun and hilarious inspiration board as a reminder: 


Here is my card: 


As you can see, I honed in on the green and black from the inspiration photo.  Some of these DPs are quite old, but I've held onto them for a long time and it worked out perfectly.  I used the SugarPea Designs stamps and colored them with my Copics.  Now how fun is the use of the Lawn Fawn Wonderful Window Die?!  You wouldn't think to use it in black for something spooky but it works so well.  I simply covered the little heart with a Doodlebug star to set the mood right. 

Do you celebrate Halloween?  If so, what are you doing to get ready for it?  

I hope you enjoyed this post and hope you will join us for this challenge!

Snail Mail RULES!



Kimberly with you today with some FUN mini card and envelope decorating.

I had to ink up the Waffle Flower Snail Mail Stamp Set and paired the cuteness with the American Crafts 3x3 Mini Card and Envelope Set in ombre lime green.  Stamping in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloring with copics after hand cutting the images, they sure are sweet on the mini card. Decorating an envelope adds a sweet touch when you send your mini card!

My colors are based on the Challenge #17 FUN images and ghoulish colors.


 I look forward to seeing you join us in the Gallery!!
