Support West Valley School PTO!

I am once again, doing a fundraiser for my son's school -- this time with a fall theme! :)  I love fall colors, so coming up with some trendy fall projects was easy AND fun!  Here there are!

The stamped candle uses two of my favorite stamp sets -- French Foliage and a new set from the Holiday Mini -- Hand Penned Holidays.  The script in this stamp set is so elegant!  For all the details on making the stamped candle, visit this link:  For the top of this candle, I applied sticky strip around the top and dumped the Champagne glass glitter over top.  Then I rubbed it in real good to keep it from flaking off.  (Use gloves and a sheet of scratch paper to avoid cutting yourself. :)
The pumpkin card is super simple, yet I love the way those pumpkins pop!  Stamp the vanilla panel with the swirl stamp from Baroque Motifs, then emboss some strips of pumpkin pie card stock with the square lattice and the snow burst embossing folders -- rub your pumpkin pie ink pad across your card stock to ink up the embossed design.  Punch out three ovals from each design -- using the large oval punch and the (now retired) small oval.  Layer the pieces to make a cute little pumpkin!  To make the stems, first punch a small oval out of some chocolate chip card stock -- now center the larger oval over the top of the punch out, and punch -- so you have an oval "frame".  Cut the oval frame into sections to use for stems.
AND, the wine tag has also had it's debut in "blog spotlight" -- see all the details here:  For this one, I used Pumpkin Pie card stock, Old Olive 1 1/2" striped ribbon, and the Medallion stamp set.  I used the Boho Blossoms punch to add some little flowers to the center of the Medallion, and the Blossom Petals punch for the leaf.  Finally, I added some sparkly Dazzling Details glue to the edges of the Medallion to give it that extra pop!  It's really beautiful in real life.

So, save the date for Sat, Nov 5th at 10 am to make these beautiful projects and support West Valley School!  The class will be held in the library at WVS, and the class fee is $15.  See my meetup group for all the details: All class fees as well as any profit from SU merchandise purchased, will be donated to the school.
