Cards using October collection – Steph

September 29, 2008

World Card Making Day is coming up on October 4. Many scrapbookers often start and hone their paper-craft skills making cards. They’re always good to have on hand, and are quick and easy to make (they’re something I actually have a chance of completing).

Here are some card ideas made using the latest Paper Pesto October kit. This was such a versatile collection – I was able to put together 3 very different looks in no time at all.

In honour of World Card Making Day we’d like to put a little challenge forward to you. Make a card (any sort) and send us a photo to be in to win a spot prize. You can either link to your blog from this post or email Kate at

Rounding off the kit this month is a board book for decorating, this cute Imaginisce Snag ’em flower stamp, and shades of vanilla and antique rose cardstock.

Just an update on the October kits available for sale: there is one kit available.

October Sneak Peek #5

The wonderful team at Kympatti Bears have put together a cornucopia of beads, ribbons, flowers and other embellishments in individually presented packs this month, especially for the October collection. In them you’ll find everything you’ll need to put that special finishing touch on your layouts.

The October kits have now all been allocated to subscribers and we’re effectively SOLD OUT. If you’re a subscriber and you do not wish to receive this kit please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the kit available to others. Thanks for your help with this. We have tried to increase the number of kits we’ll have available next month, but as you can appreciate because we order the kits in advance in order to ship them in time (that’s the aim) we often can’t anticipate demand.
