Avery Elle September Release Blog Hop

It is time for fun and inspiration with Avery Elle blog hop. Joining us this month is Kim Singdahlsen.

I used Thankful stamp set on both my cards. It is a small set with a big, cute acorn, a leaf and three sentiments.  Perfect for fall and thanksgiving. For my first card, I paper pieced acorn with some Studio Calico paper.  I also stamped the leaf in two tone. A couple buttons and a little bit hemp twine adds more color and dimension to the simple one layer card. This card is entered into CAS-ual Fridays #115 and CASology week63.

When I saw the big acorn stamp, I immediately thought about this cute squirrel from Happy Camper set.  So here it is.  A little guy with a big nut.

Here is the complete list of the blog hop.

You are fabulous

I got an opportunity to meet several fabulous and talented local paper crafters a few weeks ago-  Heather Campbell, Ashley Marcu, Jean Mannis, Karolyn LoncolnAmy Tsuruta, and Katie Brooks.  I had fun chatting with them, testing out different inks, stamps and dies.  I also got time to make one card using Heather's supplies.   Thanks, Heather for the fun get-together.    This card is for all the fabulous paper crafters.

Have a fabulous day!

School lunch note cards

I have a first grader now.  It is his first time goes school full day and has lunch at school.  I have been writing note cards to put in his lunch pack.  He loves to read it and some times share with his friends. Here I am sharing a few today. I cut 8.5 x 11 inch card stock into eight 2.75 x 4.2 inch note cards. I found it is a good size to stamp some fun and cute images, and still enough room to write a note for him.

In the first picture, all the notes are stamped with Avery Elle happy camper stamp set.

The notes from the second panel were stamped with various Avery Elle stamp set.

I am really enjoying this project.  I can stamp seasonal notes or with images he likes.  I will sure share more later.

AE: Home Sweet Home

I have two cards to share today.

For the first card I used the small images from Home Sweet Home set together with a small image from Texture tile: Be cool set and create a tribal pattern. Sentiment was a combination for Fill in the blank and Fill in the blank word die.  But I only used letter U.

The second card is a little scene I made with the cute teepee image.  The cloud is from Happy camper set. Love the texture of the cloud stamp.

Thanks for stopping by,
