Fall Harvest Greeting Card


Hey there Peeps!  Well despite the fact that I am not ready to give up on summer yet the nights are getting cooler and the trees are taking on their autumnal hues. I created this card with thoughts of brisk walks in the crisp leaves and hot cider and warm doughnuts.


I chose the frame chippie to give a finished border to the fox image.

Once I decided to alter the frame with antique gold embossing powder I knew it would be the perfect base for the Fall Harvest sentiment. I pulled the chartreuse color from the beautiful leaves in the image and I think it makes a wonderful accent.

Netting and flowers and ribbon and twine create a generous arrangement and helps to bring the fall colors to the outside edge of the card.

I added more of the flowers to the top being careful not to cover too much of the chipboard frame.

Pearly headed stick pins in a warm pumpkin color and coordinating sequins add the perfect not too flashy finishing touch.

I used the Flourished Frame Marie in an antique gold embossing powder finish and the harvest sentiment from theFall Shapes Set in a rich chartreuse embossing powder finish and heat set them to create a warm and welcoming accent to this Fall-Thanksgiving Card.

Harvest Blessings Greeting Card

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in the the most falliest fall card I have ever made. 
I’ve got a very traditional turkey image layered over a cut apart tag and stacked on a pretty white doily and patterned papers.
I’m just going to call it right now….this taffeta ribbon is my favorite for fall 2017. It’s like orange…but sooooo vintagy. And it makes a lovely poofy bow.

I’m still working in the Autumn Harvest Ribbon Club selection and pulled out the gorgeous crocheted lace. A little twine wrapped around is the perfect finishing touch.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative!

Blessings Harvest Greeting Card



Hey there Paper Peeps! Well we are starting to have a few cooler days and a bit of crispness to the air. Fall is just around the corner and it’s one of my favorite times a year. Beautiful Fall wreaths full of richly colored leaves are an iconic seasonal decoration and is the inspiration for this card.
I started with a card base in the A2 size cut from chocolaty cardstock. I knew the leaves would create a lot of contrast and texture so I kept the background papers fairly neutral.

I used the Fall Leaves die to create a nice pile of leaves to assemble a generously filled in circle.  Inks and Stickles add detail to the leaves. This Blessings sentiment block is a nice contrast to the dark background.

I layered the wreath on to a French Pastry die cut from crisp white cardstock. An additional smaller French Pastry Tiny Doily die is centered over the wreath and given dimension  with chipboard spacers behind. It’s topped off with a metal rimmed mailing tag , wooden clothespin and beautiful bow of hand dyed silk.

Bending and shaping the individual leaves before securing gave the wreath a lovely full and dimensional look.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Fall Harvest Creativity Kit and Projects


Hey there Paper Peeps! I’ve been working on some new creativity kits. Always fun to have new paper and images to work with. With all the back to school goings on..I’m in the mood to work on fall projects. Not that I want the time to go any faster….it’s already hard to keep up with all the sport and scout activities. I’ve been playing with warmer colors and more richly patterned papers. And of course Fall images.   We are vegan…so I’m not using any images of cooked turkeys… but there are great Thanksgiving images. Makes me think of apple cider and pumpkin pie and cool crisp air. Here are the projects I created with the Fall Harvest Creativity Kit

fall harvest Creativity Kit 2I am having so much fun making these house tags.

fall harvest Creativity Kit 4Oh course I can’t resist making cards too.

I created these 8 projects with the items from the kit and bits and pieces from my scrap and salvage box.  I have several images leftover and lots of paper to mix and match….so I be sharing more projects from the kit soon. You can find the Fall Harvest Creativity Kit Here. Okay that’s all for me…we’re off to town to pick up a few supplies to work on the lil camper today..hopefully it won’t rain. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Thanksgiving Table Decor with Graphic 45


Hey there Paper Peeps. I know we’ve been on a bit of a Christmas project swing lately…but today we’re changing it up a bit to share a project I created especially for Graphic 45. They asked for some Thanksgiving Decor..and I admit as a Mom of two boys….the only table decor I’ve had usually starts with turkeys traced from their cute little hands : ) They are not little anymore so time for something a little more grown up!

Graphic 45 Fall Table Display 1This centerpiece started out life as a re-purposed  lantern from Bath and Body Works . I loved the shape..and a flameless candle can fit inside to light it up. This lantern is approx. 11 inches tall.

Graphic 45 Fall Table Display 2From the side you can really see how I layered on the dimensional flowers created with the Graphic 45 papers.The Ivory/Brown/Copper Plaid ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Graphic 45 Fall Table Display 3I incorporated some Dusty Attic chipboard and a few elements from a Fall pic from the craft store. You can see that I’ve even covered the top…..why did I do this I’ll never know because it makes it difficult to pic up…but it’s pretty so that what counts right? I’ve also added some tags from the Ivory Tag Album to brighten up the dark colors.

Falling Leaves Challenge at RRR


Yay it’s time for a new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. This time it’s Falling Leaves. So perfect for this time of year don’t ya think?

I created a card with pretty patterned papers, warm colors and fall inspired embellishments.

IMG_2413I think those leaves add a nice texture.  


I used the   Brown Gingham Ribbon to make this super poofy bow.  There’s a layer of Bakers Twine in Brown Sugar also and Faux Burlap. All the trims came from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I dressed up the bow with some pretty little leaf topped pins and a fancy shmancy covered brad.

IMG_2416The sentiment on this chipboard piece if just perfect for the Thanksgiving Holiday Season. Not everything has to have a turkey on it right lol????

IMG_2418I found these little velvet flowers in chocolate brown in the stash…score for me 🙂 They dress up the side of the painted and inked chipboard frame.

Well that’s it for my project….I can’t wait to see what you guy’s come up with. So get busy creating your Falling Leaves projects and enter them in the challenge!

Later today we’ll be announcing the winner of our Vintage Halloween Cotton Scraps Giveaway so be on the lookout for another quick post this evening.
