*NEW* Sneak Peak

OMGOSH! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am for this day to finally get here! Do you have ANY idea how hard it is to keep secrets when the secret is as exciting as this?


This project started as a wooden recipe/picture holder I found at the local craft store for $1. I covered it with Prism cardstock and Doodlebug papers using white glue. Once the papers were dry, I sanded the edges using an emory board.

The adorable (and not so scary) house is from the new Spooky Sweets stamp set by Taylored Expressions. I stamped the house, grass and moon on Neenah white cardstock, colored each with Copic markers and cut them out. I used just a tich of chipboard behind the house to raise it up a bit and then glued it all into place.

This picture shows the holder without a recipe card. IF I hadn't already packed my paints (we're moving), I would have painted the inside, so please use your imagingation! lol



I colored the wooden peg (that the spring is attached to) with a Copic marker (ya! They even color wood!) and then wrapped it with a piece of delicious sheer swirly ribbon from Taylored Expressions.


The sentiment (isn't that just PERFECT for a recipe card holder? Especially when the recipe is for Red Velvet Cupcakes!) is stamped on orange Prism cardstock and punched out with an oval punch (SU!). The bat is from the new Frightful Night stamp set by Taylored Expressions. I stamped it on white cardstock with black ink, covered it with black glitter and then trimmed it out.
Remember, you can click on any of the images to get a closer look.

Tomorrow is the big reveal, so be sure to stop back! The excitement just about has me ready to burst! You'll also want to hop over to Taylor's blog to see even more exciting info!
