Today I am super excited to be guest designing for American Crafts! They are celebrating a week of gratitude and are sharing several of my projects on their blog today. I got to work with the Autumn Crisp collection, which is one great fall line! The colors and patterns were really fun to work with and I LOVED the buttons and photo overlays. Check it out on the American Crafts Studio blog!
Look at that cute little fox! ^..^
I sure have a lot to be thankful for and really enjoyed documenting some of the little things I have a lot of gratitude for in my life with this line. Thanks for having me, American Crafts! xoxo!
So, first I will share the fun news I got last week. I will have a layout on the cover of the January issue of Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking. This is the first issue of this magazine since Paper Crafts and Creating Keepsakes merged. I am really looking forward to it! You can read more about the issue here.
Thanks for stopping by today! Later this month I will be sharing some Halloween fun with The Twinery and I'll have some projects with American Crafts next month. Enjoy this beautiful fall weather we've been having!
The Twinery is hosting a sewing themed challenge starting this week! Yay! I love to sew, even though I don't have a lot of time to do it lately. Making a sewing themed card was enough to tide me over for a little while...
Head on over to The Twinery's blog to see the card with a little how-to and then head on over to link up your sewing projects for a chance at one of The Twinery's awesome prize packs!
Time was just about up for the latest issue at Paper Issues, and I got this one in just in time! The current issue featured a sketch from Simple Scrappers. I love sketches... why don't I use them more often?! Here's the sketch and the resulting layout I linked up...
This was a fun one- I dug deep in my stash for that Coordinations/Jenni Bowlin cardstock & my two-year old had fun helping me sand it. I mostly used the Sweet Girl line from Echo Park, which they so generously sent me. Love Echo Park! Some wood veneer and gold foil hearts and stitching and this page was done super quick! Well, the journaling from my daughter wasn't quick- she's not one to enjoy sitting down to write- so not like her Mama in regard!
You can go link up at Paper Issues, too- use the sketch and link up by tonight right here!
Welcome to day six of the PaperHause Fall Issue blog hop! We are celebrating the release of the new FALL edition of PaperHaus Magazine and also celebrating the 1 year anniversary of PaperHaus Magazine. Haven't checked out the fall issue yet? Just click on the cover below to be taken straight there!
To get into the spirit of fall, I pulled out last year's Halloween photos. I used the traditional orange and black, but added in some turquoise to match my daughter's peacock costume.
Cardstock: Bazzill, patterned paper: Echo Park, Basic Grey, alphas: Pink Paislee, twine: The Twinery, mist: Maya Road
Those alphas are from Pink Paislee years ago, but I still had a full pack and a half of them in black because they are the epitome of the perfect Halloween alpha! (I also still have them in green and blue because they are just perfect in so many ways! And if anyone knows the Pink Paislee peeps, please tell them to make more in other colors, because I could potentially single-handedly buy them out.)
The Fall Splendor event is filled with inspiration from PaperHaus and the blogs, so make sure you click through every blog for inspiration. Comment on every blog for a chance to win a daily prize! The Fall Splendor Blog Hop runs from September 1st to the 15th so plenty of time to be inspired!
The latest issue of PaperHaus Magazine is here! This fall issue is just packed full of gorgeous fall projects.
