The Paper Girls blog hop

Welcome to my stop on The Paper Girls Challenge blog hop!
 I hope you are enjoying all the altered projects.
My post is brought to you today by the letter S!
Originally, this was a plain, boring wooden letter:
I painted it a fun golden mustard color.
Attached grey twine around the perimeter.
And wrapped some natural twine around a couple spots.
Then came embellishing.
On this bottom cluster I used an old SU paper pack called Autumn Meadows to fussy cut the leaves.
The Family bingo card is cut from Authentique's Splendid paper line.
The acorn I handmade with cork and paper (from EP's This & That Charming 6x6).
On this middle cluster I fussy cut leaves and acorns using the Crafters Companion stamp set called Autumn Leaves from the A Little Bit Sketchy line. I'm also entering this into their monthly challenge which is to use fall colors.
And finally, I added some floating wooden hearts cut from shelf/drawer liner (similar to contact paper)! I love that stuff - works just like vinyl but is much cheaper.
My plan is to place this on my fall-themed mantel. Hopefully I'll have it all finished next week to show you.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Your next stop on the hop is Judy's blog.

Thankful for you

It's Thanksgiving week over at SP and Company.
I used the leaf from the Vintage October: Falling for Autumn set to stamp my background.
I added a few strips of paper from Echo Park's This & That Charming 6x6 pad, some burlap ribbon, and this Orange Chevron twill ribbon. This twill ribbon is new to the SP store and is SOO gorgeous in person!
I clustered some fussy-cut leaves from Falling for Autumn and a homemade acorn. If you are not a fussy cutter then Sami's got you covered with some svg files for this set. That sentiment is also from the Falling for Autumn set.
And then I just loved the tag from the EP Fall Fever paper that I had to add it. It's not even part of the paper but rather the name strip at the bottom.
'THANKS' to all of you for stopping by today!

Owl Always love you

I am so happy to be using SP and Company's Vintage October: Falling for Fall stamp set. I love the cute little images and couldn't wait to ink up this little owl and sentiment:

I created my background by repeatedly stamping Hearty Hearts background in several autumn colors. All the stamps in this heart set just line up so easily. Please don't think you need to only use this set in February with red and pink!

I tied coordinating Twinery Twine in Marigold, Mandarin, Cappuccino, and Charcoal to match my inks.

I paper-pieced the owl and placed him on a branch. I almost put the sentiment on a banner but stopped myself. I'm trying to not use banners on every card! But I needed a way to make the owl say this. Then it hit me. A word bubble! Duh.


I am entering this into Young Crafters Unite Warm and Cozy Colors Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sweetest Halloween Wishes

I've got another SP and Company design team post for you. It's Halloween week over at the blog so here's what I created!
I used the notebook paper and lollipops from Winter Pocket Fillers along with the sentiments "Christmas Wish List" and "Sweetest Holiday Wishes" (with selective stamping) to create this little kid's candy wish list.
I colored 3 little pumpkins from the Vintage October: Falling for Autumn set and added a little Twinery twine in Peapod and some washi and that was it for the embellies.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Love is in the air

For my DT post this week I was hoping this little scene on my card would mimic a Polaroid shot.
What do you think?

I used the heart lollipops from the Vintage October: Winter Pocket Fillers set and turned them into balloons using twine for the string! I just layered them over some clouds and a blue background.

And I just LOVE that sentiment from the set! Even though this set coordinates with the All Zipped Up set, it can stand on its own without the pocket too!

Thanks for stopping by today!
