Don’t you just love how easy the Want2Scrap Overlays make designing the perfect layout? Talk about instant gratification; just add your precious photos, some Want2Scrap bling, a handful of embellishments, and you’re good to go. Linda added some fun texture to her overlay using Spellbinders Grate Effects Die and Creative Medium which was added around the pre-cut moon.

Pinecone Fire Starters

I currently live in southern California and today’s the first really chilly day of the season. Maybe that’s why these festive Pinecone Fire Starters caught my attention. There’s nothing better than a cozy night spent by the fire and even if you don’t have an indoor fireplace, they work great for those campfires.

It’s not too early to begin crafting for the holidays. Wouldn’t these make a wonderful holiday gift? Who wouldn’t feel all warm and fuzzy after receiving a basket of these fire starters sitting on top of a really snuggly throw blanket with those cute tags. Just an idea! 😉 I hope you’ve been inspired to give this project a try; they smell amazing just sitting in the basket even before you use them.
