Album made from the 6″ X 6″ Kraft Cards and Autumn/Winter 2011 – Dreaming Paper Collection.
Colors used are Kraft Card and Envelope, Cardstock – Autumn Terracotta, Chocolate and Colonial White. Inks – Coco, Chocolate, Olive and Autumn Terracotta. Ribbon – Colonial White, Twine – Colonial White. Buttons – Autumn Terracotta. Other embellishments – photo hinges, brads and swirls are Autumn Terracotta.
Special details: I stamped the pumpkin three times and cut the desired segments into layers, using chip board I stacked them to give the appearance of a round pumpkin.
A cute spin on what we can do with a 6″ x 6″ card, this little mini album was created to be part of a workshop for my up-line Brigetta Jiles “Brigetta’s Creative Trends”. It might be small but it is packed with lots of places to place picture memories and journal your story. It’s a great way to showcase that visit to the pumpkin patch with your little ones, that Thanksgiving dinner with the family, or A great little keepsake for your guest to take home with them after a visit over the holiday event.
Fall is a beautiful time of year filled with color and prepares us for Thanksgiving. A time to remember all our blessings throughout the year.
I loved making this card and playing with different ways to Embellish it.

I used the For Always Paper Collection from 2012, Stamp Sets – B1343 Beloved and C1524 Words of Comfort, Inks – Black, Desert Sand and Slate, Ribbons – Black and Slate, Sparkles – Brown and Tan. Stamping was done on Colonial White Cardstock. I also used a stippling brush and applied stippling in Desert sand and slate to the Colonial white pieces and the envelopes.
For for this last version I used the Avonlea Paper Collection, Smokey Plum and Colonial White Card Stock, Grey Organza Ribbon, Clear Sparkles and the Stamp Collection from the Avonlea Cardmaking Kit.
Heart Valentine Basket and Cards Color Dare Challenge #178
“Take the Color Dare Challenge” It was great fun to play with these colors together. I know you will love creating something with these beautiful colors. Take the challenge here. http://colormyheartcolordare.blogspot.com/2016/01/color-dare-178-thistle-pixie-glacier.html
This VALENTINE BASKET & CARDS was created for a color dare challenge using Glacier, Pixie, Thistle and White Daisy.
I used Cardstock and Ink colors of Glacier, Thistle, Pixie, White Daisy, and the Pink striped paper from the Kaleidoscope Paper Collection. I also used the S1601 January SOTM set, White Organza Ribbon, Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Thick Twines – Glacier and Thistle, and mini Brads. I created my cuts in Cricut Design Space using several of our CTMH Cartridges. Art Philosophy – images #M46CCE, #M3F851, #M3ED9A – Soiree Lettering to add the word Valentine, and sentiment inside one of the cards. Artfully Sent – #M10677A, Artiste – #M3Dad5, M3ABFC.
Creating the files required using the Cricut Design Space tools – slice, weld, attach, group and UN-group and contour. This was a fun challenge that took me out of my comfort zone of colors. It was a little challenging for me to combine these colors, but are very cute together. It was a great experience and pushed me to try colors I don’t usually prefer or use. I decided to make three different card designs while I was creating my cut files. I tried to keep this project simple which is another one of my struggles. My desire was to try and create something that would apply to different style preferences and taste, I hope you like them.

This is one of the boxes from SVG Cuts. I just love their files. I really embellished this one with a lot of layering, fussy cuts on the butterflies, added words and phrases and a lot of distressing. It brought out the colors in the paper collection so well.
