It's Release Day!
Good morning, everyone, and welcome to release day! I am excited to share a bonus project with you, but first we have some very important business to attend to - we have winners to announce!
We have one randomly selected winner from each day of introductions.
On Day 1 I asked "Do you have a favorite apple variety? What about a favorite apple treat?"

On Day 2 I asked "What do you like to hand out for Trick Or Treat? A particular kind of candy? Crayons? Toothbrushes? Pennies?"

On Day 3 I asked "Do you enjoy crafting on the go?"

The release will go live today at Noon ET, but I thought we could all use one last bit of inspiration before the launch.
I wanted to pair the Statement Alphabet with the Harvest Pumpkin and Harvest Pumpkin: Jack-O-Lantern from the day my prototypes arrived. I could tell they would look great together and I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
It turns out that I now have a series of these vertical decorations to hang on this little wall in our foyer.
I used felt from the Trick Or Treat Color Story (plus peridot) to create this wall hanging. The Jack-O-Lantern is cut from Clementine, Inkwell, and Gecko. The leaf is Peridot. I embellished with a few sequins from the embellishment box.
I also used a slightly darker orange thread to sew the ribs of the pumpkin and make them stand out a bit.
The "B" and "O" are both cut from Inkwell felt. I used chipboard inserts in the core of each letter to keep them nice and rigid. I simply sewed ribbon between the layers of felt to connect the pieces. I think it turned out cute!
Thank you so much for joining me this week. It's been a lot of fun to share these new designs with you and I can't wait to see how you will use them to build special holiday memories of your own! The release is today 8/19 at Noon ET so set your clocks. Happy crafting and I'll see you again soon!
