"Joy to the World" Scrapping for Less October 2018 Flavor of the Month Kit!

Joy to the World! That song so reminds me of Christmas because as a little girl I was full of joy and glee waiting for Christmas to arrive. Of course though, what child isn’t? Right? Well, I feel the same way every single month when it comes time to reveal the card kit. This month is no exception because Christmas cards are my most absolute favorite cards to make! So let’s get cracking on those Christmas cards! Have you started yours yet? Well, if not here are some fantastic little collections to get you going. So run don’t walk to make sure you get your Flavor of the Month kit this month, it is packed full of JOY! 

I have one card for you today...stay tuned though cause I plan to use up this kit quickly and share! I used Collection 3 and made a shaker card using a very loose interpretation of Sketch #1.

I stamped the little caroling trio with Versafine Ink and then colored with my Zig Markers. I cut the bear on the left away and fussy cut him and the lamp post for the decor on my card. I then added some of the stickles in the Banana Split package to the top of the lamp post. I also grabbed a heart die and shaker pouch from my stash to create the shaker window and used those beautiful white sequins in the pouch. I think this card is super cute...and this kit is adorable! So make sure to grab one this month!

Thanks for hopping along. I am thrilled you are here. For my creations this month I decided to take 1 collection and do a card with each sketch. So you will only see 1 collection from me. If you want to see all the others...then join me over on our YouTube channel throughout the month as I branch out and begin adding more content to our channel. One of the ways I plan to do this is to bring you more card kit process videos amongst some other things! (This has been on my plate for way too long and it is time to do something about it!) 

So, jump in and take a look at the cards I have created this month:

On all of these cards I used Collection #2 and components only within that collection.
I used Sketch 1 on this card and  the Avery Elle "Be A Unicorn" stamp and stamped it on the focal element of the card sketch. I colored this with my Polychromos colored pencils. I also used as elements on my card the beautiful sparkly star buttons that came with the kit. 

This card was Sketch #2 which I rotated. I used the cut apart for my focal point and then used the "Over the Rainbow" doodlepop that was the extra embellishment in the Banana Split kit to embellish the saying. I then scattered the Kennedy Grace sequins all over the card. Pretty simple and easy this one was.

Sketch 3 was the most time consuming but only because it needed so many elements. I did change it up a bit from the sketch...You can find the sketches on the download page of the website. I used one of the sticker icons as my main focal point and then used the cut apart sheet as my sentiment on the page. I really liked how this one turned out!

Sketch 4 was the simplest of all...a circle, strip, and a focal image! I added that rainbow star for some interest in the top left and the extra sentiment at the bottom. 

Thanks so very much for stopping by and sharing part of your day. I hope I have inspired some crafty inspiration. Don't forget to check out our YouTube channel throughout the month and see the new content that will be going up. So, if you don't want to miss out be sure and go and subscribe!

Life Update: Warning Long Post

I just wanted to pop in today and give everyone a little glimpse into where I have been since August (YIKES!) my last blog post here!

I will take this little story all the way back to October of 2016...I decided to expand my business "Scrapping for Less" and open a website. I had been content with the business being a Facebook pre-order site until my sales rep at the time (thanks so very much for that push, Steve Vos) suggested why didn't I expand to the internet and with an online store! Well after some thought and much hard trying and figuring (with his help) I just pushed through and went for it.

Okay, so let's now fast forward to January of 2017...I took my then Product Assistant...more about her on January 1! And a Design Team member and decided if I was going to expand and grow this website I needed to go to the industry's trade show (Creativation) and get my name out there and just see how well I was able to mesh into this wonderful industry!

Wow! what a whirlwind...I went to Phoenix, AZ as a little tiny website (totally unknown) and was a sponge...learning, meeting, and looking at all the possibilities and ways I could grow this business. I was so thankful that I and my team members were accepted with arms wide open by some wonderful companies.

So how does all that pertain to where I have been since August you might ask? Well, I was fooling myself to think that I could single handed practically run a website, a Facebook group, start up a card kit, and be the orderer, packager, and shipper of everything. And at the same time continue to create all the time for all the blog hops, and posts in between!

I tried really hard but I will be totally honest it took its toll and I not only began to put out creations that I was not proud of at all because they had been created at the last minute and under a severe time crunch but it also manifested itself in my health and well being also.

The result was to take a step back from creating, get myself healthy both mentally and physically, focus on growing and expanding the business and strengthening those relationships with others in the industry, and focus on getting some much needed help with the business.

I am here now at the end of 2017 to say that I was able to successfully do all of the above (more about direction, goals, and moving forward on January 1) and then some! I, of course would never say that I feel I am finished but I do feel like I am back to my old self and am wonderfully happy to be back to creating with my team!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and look into my little corner of the world!
