Papertrey September 2015 Blog Hop

Papertrey's Monthly Blog Hop is here and I love this month's inspiration photo.  It's warm and inviting and rustic...all things I love about home. 

September Blog Hop Inspiration

I have to admit, this was so simple to pull together but I am giving myself a bit of a pass.  I hurt my neck about two week's ago (in my sleep, no less) and it's killer to lean my head down and stamp.  I am going nuts because I can't craft as much and it provides me with so much sanity! Oh a lighter note, you should see me changing my little guy's diaper.  I have to look straight ahead which is quite interesting with a squimy 13 month old :).  I do believe it's getting a bit better but still trying to be careful. 

I love the chalkboard look combined with burlap...

and a sweet little doily.

Thanks for stopping by!

Papertrey Create Along with Us: September 2015

Hi!  It's time for Papertrey's Create Along with Us Challenge and you know what that means...all kinds of new goodies for us to play with! There are so many lovely new releases this month so don't forget to stop by and check out what the ladies over at PTI created for us!

I was inspired by pretty much everything the DT created this month but for some reason, those sweet little wreaths from Deck the Halls keep sticking in my mind.  That said, I cannot wait to get my order in of the minute to make tags Nicole created so I thought I would combine the best of both worlds and pull together a quick wreath tag.

I decided to follow Nicole's example and try out Perfect Pearls . I love how she used the shimmery gold on dark cardstock.

Papertrey Ink: Make it Monday #225

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend planned. 

Today's project was created for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge.  This week's challenge is to create a camouflaged pocket insert.  Dawn provided us with a great tutorial so don't forget to play along!

After seeing PTI's upcoming holiday release, it put me in the Christmas spirit so I decided to pull out my Love Lives Here Holiday Stamp set.  

The tag and pocket were both cut from PTI's stitched tag and pocket die.  I trimmed off the sides of the tag so it would fit into the pocket and then adhered two doilies around the pocket.

The angel acted as the 'camo' for this project.
