Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a cute little banner that I created for Fall. The papers are from Doodlebug and all of the dies are from My Creative Time.
For the base of my banner I used the More Chunky Stitched Tags dies. I cut the largest tag from brown cardstock and then the largest stitched tag from Doodlebug paper. I added some fun solid leaves that coordinated with the design paper using the little stitched leaves die.
I spelled out the word FALL using the ABC dies. I cut the shadow portion with the solid brown and then the letters from some more of the Doodlebug design paper. I added a small doily behind the letters. I used the bunch of stitched doily dies which is one of my favorite sets of all time.
I used some fun brown ribbon to string the banners on. I decided to use the fun size holiday bow die a spacers between the letters. I just glued them to the ribbon with hot glue.
I added almost of the elements to the banner with foam adhesive.
There you have it! Make sure you check out the MCT blog for more inspiration.
Hello everyone! Today it’s all about cards over on the MCT blog. I decided to create a fall slimline card using the Tall Frame Dies and Tall Frame Layers.
This is an all die cut card. My pumpkin is from the Pumpkin lollipop holder die.I used the back portion of the pumpkin. I die cut some extra leaves from the little stitched leaves dies. Here is a closer look at the front of the card.
I used the ABC dies to spell out the word fall and the Happy die cut word came from the Tag Die Layers. I added a few extra leaves to decorate the inside of my card.
There you have it! Have a great day and make sure to check out the MCT blog for more inspiration.

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a fun tag that I created for the PDE Linky Party challenge. This week the challenge is All Tags. Here’s the tag that I created.
I used a really cute die set from Stephanie Barnard. It’s a cute pocket tag that will hold a gift card. I used some Stampin’ Up Early Espresso cardstock for the base of the tag and some design papers from the Echo Park 6×6 Fall is in the Air paper pad.
I used a cute little Owl Doodlepop for the center of my tag. I added a layer of green cardstock to create a little hill for the owl to stand on. I added some bling and ribbon to the top to finish it off.
I die cut the word enjoy, which is from a set of word dies by Tim Holtz,and added it to the back of the tag.
There you have it! That’s my tag. I hope you will join us at PDE Linky Party! Have a great weekend!
Hello everyone! It’s time for another challenge at PDE Linky Party! This time the challenge is “All Cards”. Here’s what I created.
I used a cute little stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn called “Thanks a Bushel”. I stamped the apples in the basket twice. Once on white cardstock and once on kraft. I colored in my apples on the white cardstock with my Zig Clean Color brush markers, then trimmed the basket portion from the kraft stamped image and layered it onto the white stamped image with foam tape. I used some solid brown cardstock for the base of my card. I used some plaid paper from Lawn Fawn for the background and die cut it with a cross stitch rectangle die that is also from Lawn Fawn. I used a stitched border die to create a little hill for the basf apples to sit on. Here’s a closeup of the front.
I stamped the sentiment in versa mark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added a few sequins and some twine to finish off the front of the card.
I stamped another sentiment from the same stamp set on the inside of my card.
I layered a strip of the plaid paper on the inside as well just to finish it off.
There you have my card for the challenge! I hope you decide to join us at PDE Linky Party!
Have a great weekend!
Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Today is the day for another challenge at PDE Linky Party. The challenge this time is “Anything but a Card”. I decided to create a fun FALL banner using a leaf chipboard mini album that I had in my stash. Here’s my banner.
I painted the leaves with a bunch of different paints from my stash. I did use the Tim Holtz copper paint and lots of distress ink. I used a wide black Copic marker to go around the edges of the leaves. I die cut several circles and doilies using the Graphic 45 Safari Adventure 6×6 patterns and solids.
I used some Lawn Fawn leaf dies and the Stampin Up Acorn Builder punch as well. I cut out the letters on my Cricut Explore Air using the papers from Graphic 45 Safari Adventure 6×6 patterns and solids. I used some gold thread to attach the leaves together and tied some bows with some May Arts jute string.
Here are photos of each letter.
That’s my banner! I hope you will join the fun and link up your project at PDE Linky Party. Have a great weekend!
Hello everyone! It’s time for a new challenge over at PDE Linky Party! The challenge is “All Cards”. Here’s the card that I created for the challenge.
I absolutely loved this cute scarecrow sticker and wanted to use it on my card. I used some of my new Lawn Fawn dies to create the base and the little hill. I also used a Lawn Fawn die for my leaves.
I wanted the scarecrow sticker to stand out from the background so I put him on some black cardstock and trimmed around him then popped him up with some foam tape. I added some more fun die cuts to set my little seen and the front of my card is all ready.
I stamped the inside sentiment using CardzTv Stamp Set Thankful For You and added another little die cut leaf.
That’s my card. I hope you will join the challenge over at PDE Linky Party! Have a great weekend!
Hello everyone! Today I want to share a card that I created for Mary’s challenge over at CardzTv. Here’s the challenge…
Cardz TV Sketch Designers Challenge #2
Create a card for Fall using Sketch #3 or #4.
For my card I used Sketch #3. You can get Mary’s sketches from her blog.
Here’s my card. I wanted my card to be a different size so I used the sketch without the measurements.
My fun design papers are from Lawn Fawn called Perfectly Plaid Fall. My little Pumpkin Owl is from Miss Kate Cuttables.
Here’s a closeup of my card.
I used my new favorite leaf die from Lawn Fawn for the leaves. I used the CardzTv stamp set Thankful for You for my sentiment. I left the inside blank but decided to add a few more die cut leaves.
That’s my card for Mary’s challenge. You should check it out and play along! Have a great day!
