Small Business Saturday at AudOnes Prims

Hello, hello, Crafty Friends!
Happy Black Friday.
Hope all of my friends in the States had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

custom_fb-cover-photo
Did you all have big plans yesterday? I went out to the most amazing seafood buffet with friends. So nice and simple, and such a peaceful way to spend the holiday. Today, of course, kicks off the biggest shopping weekend of the year. Now I personally am not one for the Black Friday crowds. As a matter of fact, looking back, I don’t think I’ve ever gone shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. No, I prefer the quiet at home. .. taking down the fall decor and starting to put up the tree. But I have been known to take advantage of a great online deal or two, though! 😀

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, and if you are doing some shopping, I’ve got some great deals for you! I am celebrating this special day for small shop owners with markdowns, free shipping, and a brand new holiday release at AudOnes Prims!

audonesprims-decembre25snowmanbasket
If you’re looking for truly unique holiday gifts, I hope you will come take a peek. This new release is filled with my favorites…. snowmen and gingers, and maybe even a Christmas mouse. And all are special handmade one-of-a-kinds.

Tomorrow only, enjoy:

  • markdowns on all remaining previously-released holiday prims
  • free shipping on all orders over $75 (shipping charges on orders over $75 refunded via PayPal)
  • a new line-up of one-of-a-kind holiday prims

It all starts at 10:00 a.m. EST

Happy Holidays!


Keeping Warm with Therm O Web

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

It seems like once Halloween is over, time just has a way of gathering momentum and zipping by. The holidays will be here before we know it. And if you are already feeling short on time, and are looking for holiday gift giving ideas, then be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog. All month long, the team has tons of quick, easy, last-minute, and do-able projects to share with you.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe
I don’t know about you, but that sweet little snowman face kinda melts my heart a bit. Love snowmen for the holidays, and all winter long, too. Such a fun way to add some cheer in the cold winter months. And better yet, this easy, no-sew project can be completed in under 15 minutes. A definitely plus when the rush of the holidays begin.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe2
I tend to grab up wooden frames whenever I get the chance, and keep them on hand for last minute project ideas like this. They’re usually readily available at second-hand stores for just a few cents, or can be found unfinished at your big box craft stores for very little cost, too. Then just remove the glass and add your favorite papers and embellishments. This is the Snow Patrol collection by Simple Stories and sequins by 28 Lilac Lane, and an adorable Therm O Web fleece snowman.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe2

I added vintage buttons and a big carrot nose. A little hand-stitching for the mouth. Therm O Web Fabric Fuse tape easily keeps fabric, even thick fleece like this, in place. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Or, you can find this holiday cutie ready-to-go in my AudOnes Prims Holiday Shop, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree & Sneak Peek

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

When I was off on my scrapbooking beach retreat in September, I started working on my Christmas cards for the year. I finished 16 cards at the retreat, all made with a favorite old holiday collection, BasicGrey’s 25th & Pine. I’ve been slowly sharing those cards over the past several weeks, and today I’m here with another, based on Reverse Confetti’s SFYTT #40.

Hello and Happy September, also know as Pumpkin Spice and Pumpkin Everything season! Around here it's SO MUCH NEW  AWESOME STUFF season!  If you opened your newsletter last week, you know that there are FOUR new PRODUCT LINES being introduced in September.  Not just 4 new stamps or dies (we'll have those and they:

audreypettit-bg-rockinaroundcard
I love playing along with sketch challenges, but don’t always get the chance to keep up to date. I thought it would be fun to bring some past sketches with me to the beach, and work my way through a bunch of old favorites. Really helps with the creativity when I get busy gabbing and blabbing.

audreypettit-bg-rockinaroundcard2
This sketch had the perfect focal panel for the large die cut tree I wanted to use, layered of course on one of those scalloped-edge Snippets pages I’ve been obsessed with. I added a gold star sticker to the top of the tree, and wrapped the panel with candy-stripe twine. The sentiment is a transparency strip, backed with a bit of white cardstock to allow the sentiment to shine.

audreypettit-bg-rockinaroundcard3
More papers from the 6×6 paper pad. And a few enamel dots to finish.

Anybody ready for another holiday sneak peek? Just two more days until my AudOnes Prims Holiday Shop opens!

audonesprims-holidayshop2016-sneak-peek4
Be sure to check out my AudOnes Prims Facebook page for even more fun peeks! And I hope to see you all on Friday at 10:00 a.m. EST for the grand opening!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs, America!

2016 Holiday Inspiration Series with Tim Holtz

Happy Monday, Friends!

Did you all see the fun news? Tim Holtz has just launched a month-long Holiday Inspiration Series on his blog, and I am so honored and excited to have the first project up! Throughout this special series, we hope to share lots of amazing new products from Tim’s new 2016 Holiday Release, and project ideas to jump start a whole season of holiday crafting and creativity.

audreypettit-timholtz-dec25thgiftset

For my project I have made a card and matching tag set featuring lots of fabulous goodies from Tim’s new holiday collection. I’ve used some new Tim Holtz Alterations dies and embossing folders, along with new holiday papers, glittery deco sheets, and Idea-ology ephemera bits to create an elegant and traditional holiday look with a bit of a vintage feel.

audreypettit-timholtz-dec25thgiftset2
I just love this new Enchanted Doves Alterations die. And since this is a Bigz die, that means you can die cut any number of surfaces, including the fuzzy fleece I used here. I really love how the soft fabric of the bird adds a whole new layer of texture and detail to the design. Makes you want to reach out and touch it.

audreypettit-timholtz-dec25thgiftset3
Isn’t the new Holiday Deco Paper beautiful? Adds an instant sense of glamor and sparkle that is always so welcome at the holidays.

audreypettit-timholtz-dec25thgiftset4
I really love the vintage nostalgic feel to this set, and the bits of holiday shine mixed with lots of natural rustic touches. But my favorite part is the little surprise element to this otherwise traditional design. The card is a spinner. Open it up, and the dove twirls around. A fun touch for whoever opens it. And looks kinda cool as a decor piece, too.

I hope you enjoyed this peek at the new Tim Holtz 2016 Holiday Collection! I’ve got the full step-by-step instructions for today’s project over on Tim’s blog, if you’d like to learn more. And be sure to stop back there often this month as the Holiday Inspiration Series continues.

A 25th & Pine Happy Holidays

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!

When I was off on my scrapbooking beach retreat in September, I started working on my Christmas cards for the year. I finished 16 cards at the retreat, all made with a favorite old holiday collection, BasicGrey’s 25th & Pine. I’ve been slowly sharing those cards over the past several weeks, and today, I’m here with another.

audreypettit-bg-happyholidayscard
When I left for the retreat, never did I think that I would end up focusing on just one collection, but that’s exactly what I did. Once I got started, I realized just how many leftovers I still had, and then it hit me all over again…. paper collections used to really come with a whole lotta loot.

audreypettit-bg-happyholidayscard2
So this card is once again my attempt to use up as much of that loot as I could. I used three different 6×6 patterned papers to piece the background, and then added in a couple of scrap strips cut into banner flags.

audreypettit-bg-happyholidayscard3
For the main panel, I used some pieces that I noticed I used to tend to shy away from…. the transparency die cuts. Love how they look, but you do have to be a bit strategic with the adhesive. For this card, I disguised my tape on the large transparency frame with the sentiment sticker. And a small glue dot just behind the berries to attach the holly leaves hardly shows. I’ve been loving the scalloped edges on the Snippets booklet pages, so I added a bit of that to the bottom of the frame. Tied the whole with twine, and popped it onto the card with a bit of foam adhesive.

One more card knocked off the holiday list! Can’t believe I’m this far ahead of the game. How about you all? Started on your holiday projects yet?

And speaking of holidays, it’s just about time to open my new shop!

Sneak peeks start on Monday! Can’t wait to share!

Happy weekend, everyone!

Happy New Year

The last of my CHA boxes are finally out the door, so I’m starting off the new year with a clean slate and a feeling of peace. Hopefully I’ll have something new to share soon, but for now I’m just enjoying the time I have with my parents and kiddos. But before I say goodbye completely to 2015, I do have one piece of old business from my AudOnes shop.
