  YouTube Tuesday-3D Pumpkins

Pin It Hello everyone!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with another YouTube video.

Earlier this month I shared a series of videos showing you how to make a pop-up pumpkin card.  Today I'm sharing two videos showing you how to make 3D pumpkins for home decor.

Here's the first, presented by Lawn Fawn.  It's similar to the card in it's contsruction so, if you tried that, you'll zip through this one:



Here's another video, this time presented by Graphic 45,showing not one but three very clever ideas for making pumpkins for holding treats or for home decor:


And here's one more because I just couldn't stop!  This video shows a quick and easy way to turn an ordinary roll of toilet paper into an adorable pumpkin.


So, I hope I've inspired you to make some pumpkin decor.  If you make any (or all) of these, be sure to enter them in our monthly challenge.  You have just one more day!  You can find all the details by clicking on the image below:

Next month I'll bring you more videos which I hope you'll enjoy watching as much as I enjoy bringing them to you.  If you've a mind to, please come visit me at Katydid Cards to say, "hello".

  Espresso Bunny- Kitty Bee DT

Pin It
Hello my crafty friends!
It's Connie here today to share a sweet card for a friend with all the Kitty Bee fans!

The Espresso Bun Digital Stamp is so sweet. This bunny loves coffee as do some of my friends and I! So this is perfect for tucking in a Starbucks gift card and sending it off. 


I used a doily, lace and pearls to make this card feminine. The stamped image and wood coffee cup are from Latina Crafter.
Paper is from my scraps and the pink banner is actually a post it note. Flower is from Prima.



Be sure to visit my blog, Connie Can Crop for more inspiration featuring these great stamps.
I can't thank you enough for checking out my blog today. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Give Thanks Blog Hop

Pin It

'Thank you' is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding. 
Alice Walker

Welcome to the Give Thanks Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from Amanda's Blog or if you are lost start at the beginning (Alicia's blog).  As we approach the holiday season, I think it is appropriate we should reflect on things for which we can be thankful.  We can be grateful for the little things and we should be grateful for the big things.  We should take the time to give thanks for all the persons and moments that make our lives so special.  

Sooooo, we would like to say a HUGE THANKS to our sponsor today.


Theresa is giving away a $20 Stampin' Up Gift Certificate to one lucky winner AND
take 10% off any order placed through her (not available on website) by November 30th. 
Email her at scrapsbygracie@gmail.com with your order. 

All you have to do to win this fabulous prize is comment on each of the blogs.
That's it! It really is easy.  
Of course, we would love it if you became a follower too. 

Comment buttons can be found at the bottom of the post (on most of the blogs).
Now on with the hop!

I am thankful everyday for my family and my friends. I hold them dear to my heart and couldn't live such a happy life if they were not in it! I am also thankful for this amazing hobby we share. It helps me relax when I am stressed, it helps me preserve memories of the people I love, and it allows me to reach out and inspire other people in the process! Crafting is good for the soul!!


I decided to create a Giving Thanks Layout using SVG files by Creative Kuts.
I have had this file in SVG stash for some time. It's adorable!! SO I am thankful I am finally creating this layout for you to see.



I will be saving this for this year's Thanksgiving photos. I hope I get some good ones. My silly family is the worst at taking pics when I want them to. LOL!




Up next is my talented friend for whom I am thankful...
