Papertrey Blog Hop: August 2016

Hi, there.  I have a quick post today with some projects created for PTI's monthly blog hop challenge. I love the combo of blush and neutral in this month's inspiration photo:

Here's my take on the challenge:

I used Sweet Blush, Fine Linen, Canyon Clay, and Memento's Angel Pink Ink to create my background.

Those sweet little acorns and sentiment are from PTI's new Give Thanks stamp set.  Love it!

Another take on the challenge:

I used Papertrey's Water Color Wonder paper and the sentiment is from their 2016 Anniversary set

The butterfly is from PTI's Life is Beautiful.

Make it Monday: Cover Plate Tags

Hi, there!  I hope everyone's week is off to a good start.  We are moving this week so my house is in a bit of disarray right now...ok, a lot of disarray!

Today's project was created for PTI's Make it Monday.  This week, Laurie shows us how to create cover plate tags.  Don't forget to stop by the blog and check out her tutorial.  

Here's my take on the challenge:

I decided to use my Candy Corn Collage Die to implement this technique.  I suppose it isn't technically labeled as a cover plate but to me, this die is just a mini version of a cover plate so I wanted to try it out.

I began by cutting out my candy corn and then placed the Tag Sale #10 die over the candy corn die cut before running it through my machine.  

I love this little handsome fellow from Polka Dot Parade. He always makes me smile.

Happy Spooky

Hi, there.  I am playing along in Papertrey's Create Along with Us Challenge.  I am so impressed with each and every project created by the DT this month.  I cannot get enough of their projects created with this month's new releases.  For this week's challenge, I drew inspiration from the following creation by Kay Miller:

Isn't it the cutest?  I cannot wait to get my set in the mail :).  Stop by and check out how Kay's dream of creating this little set came about.  I know all of us Papertrey Fans are extremely happy for her!

Here's my take on her card:

I used Papertrey's Happy Spooky Stamps and Dies to create my card.

I just love this little bat...such a cutie!

Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday: Sentiment Strip Grounding

Hi, there!  Today, I am playng along in Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge.  Lexi has showed us how to create clever little cards using a simple techinique called sentiment strip grounding.  I always enjoy watching Lexi at work.  She makes her images really pop using CAS layouts.

Here's my take on the challenge:

I used PTI's Pumpkin Patch to create my card.  I can't get enough of this sweet set right now.  I love playing around with different patterns and colors.

Ocean Tide, Canyon Clay, Terracotta Tile, Autumn Rose, Scarlet Jewel, and Dark Chocolate were all on my supply list.
