October Flavor of the Month Card Kit Blog Hop Reveal | Scrapping for Less








Joy to the World! That song so reminds me of Christmas because as a little girl I was full of joy and glee waiting for Christmas to arrive. Of course though, what child isn’t? Right? Well, I feel the same way every single month when it comes time to reveal the card kit. This month is no exception because Christmas cards are my most absolute favorite cards to make! So let’s get cracking on those Christmas cards! Have you started yours yet? Well, if not here are some fantastic little collections to get you going. So run don’t walk to make sure you get your Flavor of the Month kit this month, it is packed full of JOY! Also, you could win a past kit if you head back to the SFL blog and join in by participating in our rafflecopter!

I'm super thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Scrapping For Less!  You are going to love the October Flavor of the Month Card Kit!  You should have arrived here from Jenn's.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is the Scrapping For Less blog.



I have five projects to share with you so let's get started!  First up is the Double Dip Sundae which features a super fun image:



I had so much fun coloring it!  I had to have a VW Beetle when the kids were younger and actually was able to shove our Christmas Trees in it...This is a super clean + crisp card design and wonderfully postal friendly.  I wanted the image to be the star of the show.

Collection Two Ingredients, for this card I used Sketch #1 as my inspiration:


Don't you love those ornaments?  The Rose Gold embossing from my stash give it great shimmer and texture.  The button is from my stash, otherwise all the papers are from the kit!  I love the mix + match colors and patterns and I'm super happy how this one turned out.

Collection Three Ingredients + Sketch #2:


Yes, this is my favorite out the the bunch.  Such a fun stamp set and paper!  Can't go wrong with green + plaid.  I rotated the sketch to be able to accommodate as many of the images as possible.  I layered that wood veneer (holly) right on top of the twine from my stash.

Collection Four Ingredients + Sketch #4:



A traditional looking card with a fun peek-a-boo Santa.  Love the boldness of the strip pattern teamed up with the pale aqua tag.

Banana Split and Sketch #4:


The stamp set in this kit is super fun, love it layered with the pretty paper and ephemera.

That's it for me!  Next up is Christine!  I can't wait to hop around and see all the wonderful projects!
