Tag Tuesday: #2 – Fall blessings


Hello and welcome to Tag Tuesday. For my second installment, I thought a fall theme. Although the temperatures here lately make me think of winter.  I used a digi from The Paper Shelter and colored her up with my Copics. I bought this image because it reminded me of my love hate relationship with fall. I am a big fan of the fall on the east coast.  I love the crisp air and smell of wood burning and am still in awe of the vibrant colors when the leaves change.  The relationship typically sours when the leaves start to fall. Because then I am faced with raking and bagging them.  So this year, I got on board and we have hired someone to do this for us so we can use those hours doing something we enjoy and my back is also grateful.


I used Crate Paper ‘Farmhouse for the paper on this tag.  The deep rich colors make me happy.  I pulled a coordinating ribbon out of my stash and then topped it with this fun wool-like flower from Recollections. For the words I used a Jillibean Soup label from my Project Life stash.

I hope you are having a great day. Today is election day and I will be heading out to vote this morning with my boys and then treating them to the movies.

Have a blessed day!


Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder…#2

Hello everyone, happy Friday!

Welcome to my new blog series, “Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder“. If you haven’t already, please read The Intervention so you can understand the inspiration for this craft project.

My first project I created with my September kit is a Thank You card:

Thank you card.

Thank you card.

Card ingredients:

  • I used the Parfait cardstock and cut out a 6×6 card base.
  • A sheet from the AC Everyday paper pad from my personal stash
  • A piece of the gold vellum that was included in the kit.
  • White cardstock from my stash for the die cut.
  • I colored up this gorgeous MazyArt digi to match all the rich colors.
  • I also added some gemstones from my stash for additional accents.
  • A sheet of yellow paper from my stash to make the envelop. (I got to use my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board)

I love how vibrant the colors are on this card. They make me feel happy.  It feels good to use somethings from my kit so far. I have the other half of that Parfait cardstock and will make another 6×6 card. I have only begun but I can’t wait to make another card.

I will post my next card very soon.

Happy crafting!
