I have said it before but Fall is my absolute favorite time of year! And these cute new fall products are among my favorites as well!

First up are our handmade embellishments...

How about adding these fall leaves to a scrapbook page or a pretty Autumn card?

Or creating cute, scary or crazy pumpkins with the Build-a-Pumkin Pak?

Pretty Pak Halloween Build a Pumpkin

Each of these Pretty Paks are only $1.00 each and are now available in our Shop! Also check out the coordinating Fall Journaling Spots, Embossed Paper Buttons, and Halloween novelty buttons - also only $1.00 each. What a great value for such sweet and unique embellies!

With Halloween coming up next week, check out our new "Happy Haunting Page Pak".

Happy Haunting Page Pak contents

All our Page Paks make at least two 12 x 12 layouts and are only $5.00 each!  This Pak features fun patterns that aren't TOO spooky, a versatile double sided solid paper and basic black cardstock. You'll also receive a "Boo!" word art die cut, 2 pumpkin die cuts (with 2 sets of face components), 2 3" round journaling spots and a 12" length of Halloween words ribbon.

Here's what we made with the Pak:

In addition to our tools and the products in the Pak we used some basic white cardstock, a little more black cardstock and a white pen. (And we still had some leftovers!) These Page Paks are a great value, especially when you only need a few sheets for a thematic project instead of a whole kit! Check out more Page Paks as we add them to the Shop!

And remember, if you use one of our Page Paks or Page Plans, we'd love to see what you create with them!

Finally - Some Products Are Up!

I thought I was somewhat computer literate - I mean I have created and updated several websites and blogs and I knew enough HTML to get by. But I had no idea what would be involved in getting e-commerce/shopping cart software ready to go. Althought I have been sick with a sinus cold and sore throat, I have been working every night to try and get our products online but I kept running into problem after problem!

Anyway...I have had success and you can finally see a few of our products on our Shop Our Products page. I still have lots more to add and to tweak the shipping and handling modules, but that should go a little faster now that (I think!) I know what I am doing!

Off to bed, perchance NOT to dream of software problems!
