Hello Friends,

First our winner for Challenge #31

Big Shout Out to....... Saundra of Luv Scrapping Together

Here is her fabulous project

Thank you so much for playing along with us EVERYONE..

Saundra.... Remember to grab your "Winner" Button to the right!

Here is Challenge #33

Colored project
 (pencils, crayons, chalk, marker, etc. whatever you like)

Today I have a quick project to share with you.... for Pumpkins pre-school teachers.  Friday was her last day and we will both really miss seeing each of her teachers cheerful faces every day.

She is headed to the BIG GIRL school in 2 weeks.

Are these adorable or what? I purchased the cut file from Silhouette online store... I am addicted.   I added the little pieces over the pen holder area just to add more color.

 I also utilized the print feature by making a cut file into a digital stamp... oh how I love that feature. (Teach, encourage. ... is a cut file)

I also ink all the edges to give them a little more dimension.   I usually skip that step, but it really makes a difference.

I used Echo Park - For the Record 2.  I love this paper line.  So pretty and the designs can be used for pretty much any project.

**Notice my CRAYON** hehehe

Remember, voting is open for Challenge #32

Happy Crafting,

Today's Daily SPS Inspiration with Marlene - Card

Hi Shop Pumpkin Spice Followers!
This is Marlene from ScrappinCookie! Thank You for joining me here today at the Pumpkin Spice Blog!
Today I have a quick and simple card I put together using my NEW FAVORITE My Mind's Eye 6x6 Paper Pad - Kate & Co. Cambridge Court! You can find the MME Kate & Co Cambridge Court 6x6 Paper Pad at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Ebay Store.

I'm TOTALLY loving this Paper Pad, its FILLED with GREAT colors - Pinks, Aquas, Light Greens, Yellows, etc. Its easily going to become my GO TO Paper Pad - I better pick up another pad before they get SOLD OUT at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Ebay Store.

Please Excuse the Bad Photos - it was very late when I took these. I will be replace them in the morning. Sorry.
For today's card, I started with some Carta Bella Ultra Felt White Cardstock as my base. I used my Spellbinders' Classic Scallop Squares and Tim Holtz Paper Rosette to focus in on my sentiment.

I tied some White Ribbon around the card and layered it with some "Caribbean" Baker's Twineavailable at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Store - which matched PERFECTLY with the MME Kate & Co. Cambridge Court Paper Pad. I also added a small Pink Prima Rose on top of the twine.

I hope you have enjoyed my ShopPumpkinSpice Inspiration! ALL products used in my card can be found at the ShopPumpkinSpice Store and/or Shop Pumpkin Spice Ebay Store.

And don't forget to join in on this week's Shop Pumpkin Spice Challenge #32 - VACATION. You have until TODAY - Friday, August 16th 11:59pm PST for your chance to be this week's winner.

Today's Daily SPS Inspiration with Missy ~ Card

Good morning everyone!

This is Missy here with you today!  My sweet mother in law had a birthday this week, and I made her a fun card using some great product from Shop Pumpkin Spice!!

I cut this cute little purse card using my Silhouette Cameo and the purse card by Lori Whitlock.  I used some cute floral and polka dot papers from October Afternoon's Woodland Park paper pad.  I added a button I had in my stash, and tied it off with some Honeydew bakers twine from the Twinery.  I hand cut the flag for the sentiment and stamped it with a sentiment by My Pink Stamper.  Here's another view!

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Happy crafting!!

Today's Daily SPS Inspiration with June - card

 Hello!  This is June Houck with a scrappy birthday card.  I still have bits from this My Mind's Eye collection called Indie Chic "Nutmeg."  It is my go-to collection for masculine cards with these wonderful patterns in shades of blue.

  My card evolved from a small scrap of the blue tone-on-tone circles paper.  I rounded opposite corners and inked the edges.  Then I coordinated three other patterns in blue.  Even the grey-ish banner is scrap piece from in the collection.  I stamped the sentiment and added twine.  Tip:  to keep my twine from unraveling, I dab a tiny dot of glossy accents on the ends.   They end up looking a little bit like shoe laces.

papers:  My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Nutmeg" Boy CheckerFamily Laurel Burst (both sides), and Memories Tapestry; XPEDX navy linen card stock
sentiment:  My Pink Stamper "Birthday Doodles" stamp set
twine:  The Twinery charcoal

Happy Tuesday!  June
