October 2017 Release – Day 4

Welcome back for even more holiday inspiration! The team has put together some amazing projects for you today!




The Psalms are filled with verses of thanksgiving, praise, encouragement, and comfort.  Each month, the Year of Psalms series will feature a verse set in a beautiful font combination.  October’s featured verse is from Psalm 96:11, and is perfect for the holiday season and beyond!  The separate “Christ is born” sentiment can be added for Christmas projects, or left off for year round applications.  This set is perfect for creating tags, cards and projects for Christmas as well as other joyous occasions all year long.

To the Point Edgers

Dawn is back with a second edition of her very popular To the Point Edgers dies! You already love how versatile the first set was, now you have even more designs to mix and match with the first ones! Of course you can always use them alone to add detail to the edges of your cards and mats. But you can layer two, three or more for lots of different looks too!

Now that we've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!



Stephanie Gold is joining me today, featuring Year of Psalms: October.


The simplicity of this card is just stunning and really allows the sentiment from Year of Psalms: October to shine. By restricting the embellishments and color to the spine of the card, Stephanie is able to have some gorgeous elements but maintain the crisp classic white card at the same time.


  • STAMPS: Year of Psalms: October
  • INK: True Black
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White
  • OTHER: Natural Twine, Wonderland Trimmings Kit


How clever is Stephanie to use a small Christmas tree as a repeat to create a large tree? I love how she was able to make it large enough to fit underneath the full Year of Psalms sentiment. The small stars stamped around the tree help to break up the geometry and fill up areas that would have looked a little sparse otherwise.


  • STAMPS: Year of Psalms: October, Travelers Journal: December
  • INK: True Black, Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Limeade Ice, Harvest Gold
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Watercolor


There is so much to love about this project! The background created with the Year of Psalms sentiments in a tone on tone look is just awesome. The way Stephanie singled out one portion of the sentiment by adding it to the tag is a great adaptation too. The black ink used for the sentiment is brought out with the addition of the black washi tape. That tiny pop of red with the scalloped trim really brings a festive touch.


  • STAMPS: Year of Psalms: October
  • INK: True Black, Fine Linen
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Kraft Cardstock, Big Bitty: Simply Chartreuse
  • DIES: Folded Tag Dies
  • OTHER: Black Dot Washi Tape, Wonderland Trimmings Kit, Seam Binding, Natural Twine



Michelle Leone is featuring To the Point Edgers II die collection.

Isn't this dreamy? One of the wonderful things about the To the Point Edgers dies is that you can take a card to the next level with so little effort! By layering a few different edges, and simply adding your favorite stamped floral or sprig, you have the perfect canvas to add a sentiment to the lower corner. I also love how Michelle mixed two contrasting patterns for interest, while still maintaining her monochromatic scheme.


  • STAMPS: Keep It Simple: Joyeux Noel, MIM Kit: Wonderland
  • INK: Classic Kraft, Spring Rain
  • PAPER: Classic Kraft, Bitty Big Spring Rain, Fresh Snow Linen 
  • DIES: To the Point Edgers II, MIM Kit: Wonderland 
  • OTHER: Stickles glitter glue, dimensional adhesive


Who would have thought to use the To the Point Edger dies on both the top and bottom of a mat? I love that! You could do the same on the top and bottom or different depending on your desired design. One detail that jumped out at me was the addition of the tiny pink button to her twine bow. Little details like that are what make a card fabulous and help bring out some of the colors from the stamped focal points.


  • STAMPS: Traveler’s Journal: December, Dash Away All
  • INK: Spring Moss, Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist, Classic Kraft
  • PAPER: Fresh Snow Linen
  • DIES: To the Point Edgers II, Travelers Journal: Accessories Dies
  • OTHER: Stickles glitter glue, Rustic Jute Button Twine, misc. button, polka dot embossing folder


This festive creation will make any recipient smile! I'm loving how Michelle got her three pops of red in with the twine, snowflake mat and the striped paper. With the balance of three it carries the eye around the project and creates visual balance.


  • STAMPS: Dash Away All
  • INK: True Black
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Bitty Big: Pure Poppy, Bitty Big: Simply Chartreuse
  • DIES: To the Point Edgers II, Silver White Winters die, Travelers Journal: Accessories Dies
  • OTHER: Misc. twine, misc. enamel dot
