SPS October blog hop!




Welcome to Pumpkin Spice October blog hop!

If you've come here from June's blog, then you're on the right track!  If not, please stop by the Pumpkin Spice Store Blog to make sure you haven't missed anything along the way.

Today the Pumpkin Spice DT is kicking off October with a blog hop!  We're featuring Echo Park's line of products as well as sneak peeking the wonderful creations that Lenae created for her Kit of the Month.  Let's get started!

First up, a sneak peak of one of Lenae's Kit of the Month creations! She has put together a wonderful collection of supplies using Echo Park Apothecary and MME Mischievous.  It's definitely a great time to cook up some Halloween-themed creations :) 


Isn't the little guy on my sneak peak so cute?!  Make sure to head over to the Pumpkin Spice Store to check out Lenae's kit as well as explore the various other goodies that the shop has to offer.

For today's blog hop creations, I put together three quick Christmas cards using  Echo Park - Season's Greetings 6x6 Paper Pad and chipboard pieces from Echo Park - Season's Greetings 6x12 Chipboard.  Alright, so I love Christmas/holiday papers, but this collection is just a must-have.  I absolutely love the traditional greens and reds mixed in with blues.  Just so pretty!  And the chipboard pieces are great.  I don't do them any justice, especially the wreath (sorry for the bad photo of that one).  It didn't take me too long to put these together, either.  Cardmaking is so quick without having to color images, lol.
(for all cards) Papers: Echo Echo Park - Season's Greetings 6x6 Paper Pad ; Embellishments: Echo Park - Season's Greetings 6x12 Chipboard, May Arts ribbons; Tools: ATG gun, Spellbinder dies, Inkssentials ink blending tool, MS border punch
 




And of course, what's a blog hop without a prize? Denine was very generous and let us give away our choice of prize for this blog hop!  Since I love the whole line of Echo Park's Season's Greetings papers and embellishments, I chose to give away  Echo Park - Season's Greetings - Collection Kit - EP pre-package.  What a generous prize - thanks, Denine!  All the papers in this collection are so gorgeous and you'll be seeing it used a lot on my blog :)

In order to be in the running for this prize, please leave your name and email in InLinkz below.  You do not need a blog to enter.  The giveaway ends on October 9th and the winner will be announced by October 10th!



That's all I have for you today :)  Please head over to the lovely Carissa's blog to find more Echo Park inspiration!


And here's the hop order for your convenience:
