Gossamer Blue October Kit

This weekend was the Crop Pink Crop at Scrapbook Island.  It is one of my favorite crops at the Island, as they auction off layouts, cards, and projects that have been on display at the store…  and that people have donated especially for the crop.

I had a great time, and was grateful that I had my new Gossamer Blue October kit with me.  I figured that I was going to work exclusively with this kit, because, well, I LOVE it.  I’m so glad that I decided to give the club a try.  So worth my time.

I started out by making sure I had some fall photos.  This kit just screams fall, and while I like to think I’ve been good at taking pictures all year…  It’s just not fall here yet.  We have had 2 whole days of weather that was cold enough to wear a long sleeve shirt.  I dug deep and found some photos of our Las Madres Halloween party from 2001.  What I love about the photos is that the more people who showed up, the more chaotic the picture became.  I love the typewriter paper from Lawn Fawn.  And, I’ve been so feeling my sew easy lately…  Everything just came together.

Once I got into the kit, I realized that I really wanted to weave again on this project.  The weaving just feels so fall to me.  I had this great photo of Sean munching on sprinkles…  It was just perfect.  I just love the snowflakes from the Jillibean Soup!  I love it.  And it worked so well with the fallness.

The best part... Sprinkles!


Finally, I realized that I had my Studio Calico mask with me, and I was feeling hex-ie.  I loved the pictures that I had of Sean pin trading at Disneyland last march.  It has a cold weather feeling…  And the one picture was taken by a Disney photographer, looking for a good shot.  It’s one of the first times a photographer there just came up and started taking photos of us.  Well, Sean.  I’m not sure it’s done.  I think it needs journaling.  but for now, it’s in the book, and I’m happy.

All in all, I’m pleased that I got 3 projects done.  Lets try to get some cards made with the left overs…  Those little Lawn Fawn typewriters are still calling me.  :)


  1. I have that same hex mask – I think I bought it at Scrapbook Island! Love what you did with it – the clean edges and the deep color. Seeing what you did with it, now you have me wanting to buy a sew easy, too! Great texture! But the budget for this month has been spent :-/
