Dress It Up

Welcome to the long Labor Day Weekend!  I hope everyone gets to take a break from work to enjoy this final weekend of summer.  The good news?  Autumn is just around the corner and that means fall foliage, apples galore and warm fuzzy sweaters!

This is our final post of August and we're wrapping up our regularly scheduled programming.  :-)  We sure hope you've enjoyed spending time with Paper Made Bakery and our Fresh Baked Kits.  I've loved every minute -- and just wanted to tell you that.  Another BIG thank you to our guest designers this month:  Tenia Nelson, Niki Garcia, Melissa Shea and Jenn Shurkus.  You ladies ROCK!

We'll continue to offer our past Fresh Baked Kits until they're gone, so think about making one a special gift for a crafty friend or relative, or maybe you'd like to put a couple onto your own Christmas list!  We can work out all the details of getting them shipped to just the right person (just about anywhere in the world!)  All of our design team samples, inspiration, and fun ideas will be right here so come on back and enjoy.

So, here's a little card I made with the One Scrappy Dame kit.  I made the origami dress by watching this video and found it to be a fairly simple creation. I've several of these dresses and thought they'd be fun to use for a variety of occasions, depending on the color and patterned paper you chose.  Here I've used the sassy black and white chevron patterned paper for the dress, some ribbon and a little button, then layered it all onto the bright yellow honeycomb card front.  All of this, as well as the clear stamp set, is included in the kit!


The tiny red rhinestones are from my stash.  On the inside of the card I included a white insert layer and then used the fun polka dot border stamp from the You Said It, Sister set with pretty red ink to make a splash -- that's a great border stamp to jazz up any card!


So, that wraps up August!  Have a relaxing weekend and we'll see you at:
