Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!! As you all know, this month, I'm guest designing for Doodles Paper Playground and today is the October Release Blog Hop!!

Hello Sparkle Blends Fans! Get ready, because it’s time to celebrate! That’s right, its time for our October Release Blog Hop!

There are 6 brand new blends for you this month, and the design team has been hard at work creating inspiration projects to share with you! We went a bit more subtle for the Autumn and holiday season, we have the 2 more Blends for our Birthstone Collection, plus we’ve got some bold Blends for just for our pets, as well as the teacher and students in our lives. Check out Opal, and Citrine (October and November Birthstones), Apple for Teacher, Penguin Party, Pawsome Pets, and Pumpkin Spice.

October Release

Our latest Sparkle Blends are live for purchase, right now, at White Rose Crafts & you can find detailed descriptions and direct links in our October Release Blog Post!

The Designing Divas have once again created some amazing projects this month, so make sure you leave them some comment love for a chance to win one of the prizes listed below! Do you have a favorite blend from this release? Make sure you circle back to the Doodles Paper Playground Blog and leave a comment with your favorite blend for a chance to win a pack!

I used the Eternal Elegance Cut and Emboss folder from Crafter's Companion on a piece of yellow card stock. Isn't that design so elegant? Then I took an A2 card base and used a pencil to lightly trace the windows. I adhered foam tape around the windows and added the sparkle blend November Citrine. Then I adhered acetate over the windows and then the embossed card stock. I stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday from Sharon's Script stamp set by Brutus Monroe. I cut it into a banner and adhered it on to the card.
