Do you have a friend or loved one that lives far away?  What a perfect opportunity to send a handwritten note to say hello.  Sure, emails and texts are definitely quicker, but the old-fashioned elegance of sitting down to write cannot compare.

Cozy Fall Card

A cozy fall scene makes the perfect focal point on a greeting card.  For today’s project, I was inspired by the little house tag in Carta Bella’s Fall Break ephemera pack and wanted that to be a part of my card.  Since I was not doing any stamping, I wanted to add a stenciled layer and a leaf layer for the tag to rest on.

Halloween Treat Tags

I love making tags almost as much as cards.  They’re quick to make and you can still use all your fun scrapbook and stamping supplies—just on a smaller scale!  Halloween is always a fun time for tags because of all the fun candy treats you can attach them to.  In today’s post I show you ways to use up those piles of “googly” eyes you may have hiding in your craft room.  I know I have a ton and they seem to multiply.

When you see a floral themed stamp set, do you usually think spring and summer?  I know I do!  I love getting out bright markers or paints and creating bold blooms that “pop” against white card stock, but there’s no reason to tuck those floral stamps away when the cool, Fall air hits.  My project today shows how to bring a floral stamp you might have a tendency to use for more bright and Summer-y cards into Fall.

Donuts…..always a welcome surprise for breakfast!  This is especially true with school starting soon and crazy mornings where a sit down breakfast is not in the cards.  For today’s project, I used the Sizzix—Jen Long Donut Card Fold Along Die to create a fun card to attach to some mini donut holes for a quick out- the- door snack.  Add a happy and encouraging message, and your kids will start their day on a positive note.
