New Samples for Fall

Fall is a Wonderful season of changing colors
and the smell of freshly picked baked apples, raspberries,
fresh roasted corn on the cob
the chance to go find the biggest pumpkins
at the pumpkin patch to decorate.

It's a time for falling leaves,
cool breezes and
long walks in the Autumn Sun.
Let us inspire you with our projects today
to capture that wonderful feeling of fall
and create something fun!

Don't forget to grab your camera and get a
picture of your kids when all the leaves
are piled up high and ready for jumping in!

Autumn Splendor chipboard and
element stickers

This is a quick project to keep memories
of a fun trip to the pumpkin patch or an amazing
family outing or hiking trip!

To make it we cut a piece of chipboard up
tied it together with jute and covered it with cardstock.
We sanded it and inked it and
we added strips of our fall paper. We also added jute,
buttons, ribbons and stickers and a calendar.
The handle is made from sticks tied on …

It's the second day of our Back 2 School projects
and we wanted to make something fun
to keep all your child's report cards in!
(this idea was given to me along time ago)
but it took me until now to make a
really cute one!

For this project we just used a purchasedfile folder and covered the outside and the separate files inside.We punched out cute tags with the grades on them & added some cute black letters too.Now it's ready to fill with lots of amazing treasures from each school year!
The outside was GP 374 and then we
used scraps from each of the papers for
the inside pieces.

This would be a great gift idea for a special teacher made from little wooden frames.
Each one is covered in all the different school papers,
fastened together with ribbon
and sanded for a weathered look.
Isn't it so cute!!
