Santa Sack

Hello, Friends!  Marilyn here with a Saturday Project.  Today I made a "Santa Sack".  I found multiple examples of Santa Sacks on Pinterest and then made my own.  Santa Sacks are usually used to put your child's gifts in that come from Santa.  The sack is placed under the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve and is found by the child on Christmas morning.

My Santa Sack will be used as part of a classroom Bingo prize in an upcoming school carnival.

Santa Sack

To make my project, I first purchased the canvas bag at Hobby Lobby today for $8.99 before using
my 40% off coupon.

Next I went to the Silhouette store and looked through Christmas images before deciding upon this little Elf.  I added some snowflakes and a Naughty / Nice check box.  All the images were designed and printed using Silhouette Cameo and Square1 Iron-On.

Once everything was print and cut out, I layed out my design and heat pressed it onto the canvas bag.

Square1 Iron-On can be applied using a regular iron as well as a heat press.  If heat pressing, set your temperature to 325 degrees and press for 10 seconds.

Thank you for stopping by!  ~ Marilyn

SBC October Card Kit

It is our monthly card kit reveal time. Scrapbook Blessings Club is joining up with Scrapping For Less, and we are bringing you affordable Mini CARD KITS!!! 

Here is a quick peak of this months kit

Check out the projects I was able to do with this great kit!

Card #1
Cute little squirrel stamp that I water colored.  I took some of the designer paper and cut out leaves for my embellishments.  The squirrel image is mounted with foam tape.

Card #2:
Here's the squirrel stamp again along with sprinkle enamel dots and a die-cut fall saying.

Card #3:
This fall card uses several of the designer papers included in the kit.  The leaves were cut using scraps from the kit's papers.  The die-cut is mounted with foam tape.

Home Decor # 1:
This is a decorated 3.5" wooden block decorated using items from this month's kit.

It is perfect for all levels of scrapbookers! So whether you are a newbie or an experience scrapper, these kits has everything you'll need to create fast and easy projects. All you need to do is get out your scissors, paper trimmer and adhesive.

Why card kits? A couple reasons, one is getting fabulous papers and embellishments from popular Scrapbooking Companies, without buy a ton that you never use and letting it all just sit in the drawer.

  The second is cost. I am a frugal scrapbooker and affordability is always high on my list.  It is not always easy to spend $30- $50 on a kit. 

Our kits will be $15.00 which INCLUDES shipping!

And lastly is convenience, with these kits, there is no guess work in getting papers to coordinate along with embellishments and fabrics, etc.

 Who doesn't love fun and affordable--papers, flowers, chalk inks, brads, chalkboard, stamps, buttons.. more!! Every month you get something a little different!
