Paper Pumpkin Thing July Blog Hop - Summer Nights

Good Morning, Stampers!

So glad you can join us for the 
Paper Pumpkin Thing July Blog Hop - 
Summer Nights!





There is so much variety in this month's kit!
Combine it with the optional add-on and the 
possibilites are truly endless!


My favorite thing about these monthly kits is
the coordination with all the other amazing products - take a look:

Here, I combined it with the 
Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper.


Here, I added it with a touch of silver accents
and the Playful Alphabet dies for a fun New Years card.
Because who isn't ready for a NEW YEAR??!! 😉

I created the box from the card and added
some addtional Whisper White Crinkle Ribbon

Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #387

Good Morning, Stampers!

The Paper Craft Crew is back with another 
triangle sketch challenge this week! We had so many
fabulous ideas last week, I know we will
see plenty more this week. I am always amazed
at the ideas and interpretations - the talent
and inspiration is amazing!


I was happy to have the Gather Together stamp set
and coordinating dies return to the Fall mini catalog!
The new addition is the Brushed Metallic cardstock.
I used copper here with the leaf die. It's hard to see from 
the photo, but there is a slight brushstroke across
the metallic that gives it a bit of an aged or worn look. It's so pretty!

SU!pplies
Stamps: Gather Together
Ink: Whisper White, Bunblebee, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Epsresso, Pumpkin Pie, Copper Brushed Metallic
Accessories: Gathered Leaves dies, Tasteful Textile embossing folder

Little Wooden Boxes Take 3

Good Morning, Stampers!

I'm back with another fun idea featuring the little wooden boxes I shared a few weeks back. These little boxes can be used for so many fun projects!! You can see the previous projects HERE and HERE
I found these in the wooden craft section - pick some up and try one of these projects out!

Here is the unfinished box again:



For this project, you will need (4) boxes. The best part is that you can get (2) projects out of these! Make one for yourself and give one as a gift OR make them for different occasions! I will have a Christmas one to share in the coming weeks!



Pull the drawers out and use them as one set and keep the boxes together for a second set. Here, I added the Guilded Autumn designer paper and the Gathered Leaves dies along with the Playful Alphabet dies.
Just a few embellishments are needed as that paper is gorgeous with the gold and copper foil accents!

SU!pplies:
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Copper Foil, Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, Guilded Autumn DSP, Early Espresso
Accessories: Greenery ribbon and trim, Playful Alphabet dies, Gathered Leaves dies, Stitched Shapes dies, Tasteful Textile embossing folder

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Playing with Patterns

Good Morning, Stampers!


The Create with Connie and Mary
Design Team is playing with patterns this week!


This is a fun way to use up any left over scraps
of designer papers you may have. I simply cut my center
rectangle and added the strips on a diagonal.
Once added, I trimmed the edges and adhered it to the 
embossed card front. Then, its easy to add any
additional elements! 


SU!pplies:
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, Shaded Spruce, Forever Greenery DSP, Early Espresso
Accessories: Whisper White crinkle ribbon, Greenery embossing folder, Forever Flourishing dies, Layering Stitched Rectangle dies
