October Blog Party Recap and YES–We Have a Winner!

We had an amazing turnout for the October Blog Party.  We were pleased with the variety of projects and we are thrilled that you took time to participate.  We know that there are many on-line activities that are available for your participation, and we are happy that you deemed the WMS Blog Party worthy of your time and creative talent.  If you haven’t had a chance to see all the fantastic projects, it’s not too late, they can all be found here.

Each and every project was truly fabulous; each one unique and creative in design. The following three projects really caught my eye.

Marybeth L.’s creative use of text on her leafless birch trees gave them real dimension and texture, and the bats from Gracie at Halloween were hung in their natural sleeping position. She balanced out the fun Halloween creativity with her elegant lace and bow and she even snuck in the purple from the color challenge with three purple beads. 


Sarah’s Pinterest inspired paper bag tree was the perfect backdrop for this spooky piece of home décor. Cicely at Halloween was the muse for the images hung from the branches as well as the wind blown Cicely herself. The attention to detail is fantastic in this project and with the gold shimmery mist sprayed on the tree, it gives the entire project a magical feel. Sarah’s wonderful creativity made this a real winner in my book.


Asha’s spooktacular version of a Concertina Fold Card is filled with wonderful Halloween imagery – from the witch flying across the full moon to the jack-o-lanterns peeking up from the tops of the card. She filled the panels with images from the Hocus Pocus and Gracie at Halloween sets to make sure she completed the eerie scene she was going for. Can you image the delight in receiving such an amazing creation in the mail?

Pretty incredible creations, yes? Thanks to everyone who participated. There is so much creativity among WMS customers, and everyone is a winner because they have shared their work and have inspired us, but only one participate can win the free set that WMS is giving away to a lucky winner today.  We used to select our winner this month.  Congratulations goes to:

Tracey McNeely
