Fun at the Nook

The last week I have had so much fun getting back into the swing over at {{ the Nook }}. For some reason, I never stuck around when I first registered there in 2007, but thanks to the wonderfully wickedly funny {{ Zarah }}, I found my way back there. I think I found an online home again after the loss of Scrapmuse earlier this year.

What is even sweeter is that lots of my old online buddies from all across the globe are hanging out over there too, which makes it even sweeter. So, I got suckered in, loving it and intending to stick around for a loooooong time to come :)

First things first, I just had to take part in Dani's {{ Card Colour Challenge }} for October. Those of you who don't know {{ Dani }}, let me tell you, you have missed out BIG time. She is my card-queen because no one makes cards like her. She is a card-making machine but every single one of her creations is awesome and inspires you to get crafty. 

I thought that the colour combo for the challenge would work well with one of the new {{ Some Odd Girl }} releases, my fave of the lot the {{ Pumpkins }}. I tried to re-create the colours for the challenge with my ProMarkers and I think I haven't done too bad.

Cardstock - Bazzill ** Papers - SEI ** Digi Stamp - Some Odd Girl ** Sentiment - Creator's own ** Other - ProMarkers, Embroidery Floss, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Ink

I also managed to get another layout done with my {{ October Kit }}, which brings the total to four layouts so far. But again, I am totally not done - I's day there are at least another four layouts in this Kit.
Cardstock - Bazzill ** Papers - Scenic Route, 3ndypapir ** Stickers - Sassafras Lass, Dymo ** Other - Cosmic Shimmer, Pearls, Rhinestones, Uniball Signo Pens, Embroidery Floss, Punchinella, Vinatage book page

Speaking of Kits, even though I am officially on a "do-not-sub-to-a-kit-until-you-used-your-stash" freeze, as soon as I have managed to scrap a significant dent into my old stash I am so going to be all over {{ the Nook Kits }}. They are gorgeous and if I wouldn't have such willpower, I would have gotten this baby already:

Watcha think, yummy or what? I am not joking, but I look onto the Kit section every freakin' day thinking "shall I?"...I think right now I even want it more than {{ Vivian Campbell }} and that is saying a lot for the Kit, because lookey:


  1. so glad you found a new crafty home :) i haven't had one for a few years now and i miss it! very cool you jumped right in, love your projects!

    I agree, though. The Nook rocks. The kits are fab and it's just such a friendly, nice place (not to mention the amaaazing talent, that you add to by being there, by the way!) and I'm so glad you think so too!!
