No Tricks...Just Treats and Some Exciting News


I'm super excited to share with you that my Single Place Test Tube Holder is the feature this week in the SCS Weekly Inkling and can be found in the SCS Resources.  I started creating these fun little test tube holders back in 2008, when JustRite Stampers was running a contest.  I bought them on a whim at Michaels, thinking I'd be able to come up with some type of container to put them in.  The larger/longer test tubes on the left are made by EK Success and can be found in the Martha Stewart Halloween section, if you're lucky enough to find some at your store, you can always pick up some extra sets and send them my way for future projects!  The smaller/shorter test tubes on the right are from Eclectic Paperie.

These Test Tube holders are great for other holidays or birthdays and fun to fill with small trinkets, bath salts or baking sprinkles.  The ideas are endless!  Additional directions for holders can be found on my sidebar as google documents.

For those of you with cutting machines, I'm thrilled to share with you that Adela from Creations by AR has adapted my template into a cut file - you can find it here.  I just love her templates, their not only wonderful to use with your cutting machine, but they are also available as PDF files, so anyone can create using her templates!  Speaking of cutting machines, my other exciting news is that I am now  Designing for eCraft.  Be sure to stop by their blog for tips, videos and projects featuring the eCraft.  The eCraft design team is being introduced this week, next week we'll start posting projects and tutorials using the eCraft.

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Halloween Treats
Card Stock - Black, Orange, Vinyl
