Hello Sparkle Blends Fans! 
Get ready, because it’s time to celebrate! 

That’s right, 
its time for our October Release Blog Hop!


We have 6 brand new blends for you this month, and our design team has been hard at work creating inspiration projects to share them with you! We went a bit more subtle with our two new blends for the Autumn and holiday season; plus we have 2 more Blends to add to our Birthstone Collection, as well as a couple of fun, bold Blends just for pets, as well as the teacher and students in our lives. Check out Opal, and Citrine (October and November Birthstones), Apple for Teacher, Penguin Party, Pawsome Pets, and Pumpkin Spice.

Our latest Sparkle Blends are live for purchase, right now, at White Rose Crafts & you can find detailed descriptions and direct links in our October Release Blog Post!
