Fall themed cards

Today is my day up on the Fancy Pants Blog and I have a set of 3 Fall themed cards.  I had fun making them with the Burlap and Bouquets collection.  I am only showing this one for you, to see the rest you are going to have to visit the Fancy Pants Blog! hehehe

I used my Silhouette to cut out the basket, the sentiment stamps are Technique Tuesday, the apples and 5 cent stamp are from PTI and finally my favorite Chicken Wire Background by MFT.  Finally of course tied off with a bit of Divine Twine.

Teachers Touch the Future

I had an enjoyable day here at home by myself.  Now there are a lot of things I could should have been doing but I chose to play in my scrap room as much as I could.  I used the Something Wonderful collection by Teresa Collins to create a school themed card.  Quite appropriate right now, we should have started school on September 2, but we are still in a labor dispute with the government with no end in sight for the near future :(

I used my Silhouette and a Kerri Bradford to cut out the letter background, the apple is a Silhouette cut, the stickers are of course SRM Stickers and the 'teacher' is a PTI die.

I am playing along with a few challenges. 

Enjoy Fall... I am ready to!

I am ready for some fall weather.  It has and continues to be quite warm here.  I am ready for the coolness of fall.  I used the Yes Please collection by American Crafts to create this fall themed card. 

The stamped sentiment is a Technique Tuesday stamp and of course all finished with some Silhouette cuts (the large sentiment is from Kerri Bradford) and some stitching.

I am playing along with the Paper Players challenge:

And I used this sketch from Studio Calico:
And also for the JUGS challenge:

Find Joy

I love the soft pretty colors in the Jubilee Mint Julep collection by My Mind's Eye.  I am also in love with all the bikes, especially the pink ones ;)

I cut the sentiment with my Silhouette and then stitched it on.  The bike is fussy cut from some of the pattern paper and mounted with foam squares.

Early start on Christmas Cards

I decided I better get busy with my Christmas cards since once the grand baby is born, I am thinking my crafting time will be limited!  I used the Tinsel & Company by Teresa Collins

I used my Silhouette to cut out the sentiment and the stripe die is from Papertrey Ink.  I don't use it much but I did tuck in a bit of ribbon, and finally a bit of burlap twine to finish it off.

Happy Moment layout - a puppy and his pool

I am up on the Fancy Pants Blog today with this layout.  I was inspired by a photo on Pinterest and used the Nautical collection and some Unity stamps to create this layout of our puppy and his love for water.

I love this Silhouette cut.  Also our puppy loves the water so much we had to buy him a baby pool!

For more details, information and the photo that inspired me, please check out the Fancy Pants Blog.

Back to School Teacher Gift

Have you checked out this month's Emag from Fancy Pants?  You should it is full of inspiration!  Today I am sharing the second project that I created for it.  I used the Be Different collection to create this little gift for a teacher.  I love the die cut on the front - perfect for a primary teacher! I made the pocketed holder out of a lunch bag (more information and detail in the Emag)

I used some SRM Stickers (I stuck the apples onto card stock and cut them out to use as clothes pin embellishments)  along with some dies from PTI

The 'clipboard' is made with a die from Paper Smooches.  A few little school themed items are tucked in the pockets along with a gift card to a teacher store (Staples or Wal-Mart are great alternatives)
