October Hoarders Hop


Hi everyone!  We are back with the Hoarders Hop after a summer break.  Woohoo!  We will now be hosting the hop once a quarter.  There will be inspiration along with some great prizes along the way! 

Welcome to the October Craft Hoarders Anonymous Hop! You should be coming to my blog from Wendy Robinson's blog.  To start at the beginning of the hop, and for the full list of Bloggers, go to Gloria's Blog!


We are being challenged this month to create something for the upcoming holidays so I decided to create this fun pocket card using products from Fun Stampers Journey.  I stamped three leaves from the Autumn Days stamp set with Dark Roast ink.  I then colored them with my new Pan Pastel sets.  I also added some Splatters of the Bronze Silks to the leaves.  I then added Journey Glaze to them and set them aside to dry.  In the meantime, I die-cut the Double Pocket card die out of Dark Roast cardstock.  I adhered it together and added a piece of patterned paper from the Harvest Days Prints pack to the front.  I then tied a piece of Candy Apple Satin Ribbon around the bottom and tied it in a simple knot.  Once the leaves were dry, I popped them up on the front of the pocket with foam squares.  I then tucked in two notecards made from Cranberry Bliss and Butter Cream cardstock.  On the top card I stamped the Thanksgiving sentiment from the Annual Celebration set in Dark Roast ink.  I tucked both cards inside the pockets.  To add a final touch, I added several enamel drops made from my red and gold glitter Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I just love these products so much I had to offer some of them as a Fall prize bundle.  One random lucky winner will be chosen from comments left on this blog post.  You have until Wednesday October 12th to leave a comment.  I will chose a winner that night at 8pm.  I will announce the winner.  The winner must message me to claim the Fall bundle within 48 hours.  Fall Prize Bundle now closed!  See the end of my post for the winner!


I hope you enjoy the fun Fall Pocket card and have been inspired to create something fun for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.  Now head to Teresa Goblirsch Horner's blog for the next stop on the hop.  Have a wonderful day!

The winner of my Fall goodie package is Mcstamper!  Please send me your info to mmycomedtec316@yahoo.com by the end of Saturday October 15th to claim your prize.  Thank you to all that left such lovely comments!
