The holiday issue of Crafts 'n Things magazine goes on sale on October 12th (our wedding anniversary ) and is packed with great ideas! Here's a sneak peek of two projects I have in this issue. Check back next week for the full project photos, or better yet pick up a copy of the magazine!Let Crafts 'n Things® show you how to make the 2010 holiday season your creative best! Hand-crafted holiday cards and gifts, quick-and-clever ornaments and dazzling décor ideas abound in the December issue. Check out the Budget-Savvy Gifts section for a dozen handmade gift ideas that fit your budget and don't scrimp on style. Go directly to the top of Santa's "Nice List" when you give homemade decadent treats -- from heavenly cappuccino truffles to beautifully packaged chocolate chip banana bread, every morsel packs a dollop of holiday happiness. New this year, don't miss our special 30-Minute Ornaments showcase. Whatever your style, you're sure to find at least one special addition for your tree. Happy Holidays!

P.S. I'm wearing a new blinkie in the right margin with pride.

Here's my card to welcome the new designers. I embossed and sanded some fabulous Black Magic cardstock by product partner Core'dinations (my favorite of theirs!) and stamped the sentiment from Everyday Lines directly onto the ribbon. Add a few pearls, and you're good to go!

I am proud to introduce the very talented Cari Locken.

"Hi there! My name is Cari Locken and I live with my amazing husband and our three children in Langley, British Columbia. I started scrapbooking in 1997 and it has become a passion of mine! My family and surroundings are my inspiration and I love to scrap the everyday-type of events. I love teaching scrapbooking classes at conventions and various retreats throughout the area. My style is clean, classic with a touch of fun & whimisical details. You can find my work in Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, Cards, Paper Crafts, Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbooks etc (BH&G), and Creating Keepsakes. I'm thrilled to be a part of the myStampBOX team!"

Be sure to check out Cari's blog that's packed with colorful inspiration. Cari, we are lucky to have you join our team!!
