Fall ~ Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop

Welcome to the 3rd in Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  I am delighted to be taking part  again.  You will have noticed a change to our ‘livery’ but we are the same group of international demonstrators sharing our ideas with you.

You will have either arrived from  Jo Blackman’s post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME .   This month’s theme is  FALL  ~ we are just about to start fall here in North Texas, the weather is so unpredictable that it could last until next spring or we could get a a viscous winter with ice storms.

Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice but also because they have the 12 x 12 Page Protectors and Albums.

Today I am sharing my craft room, how I have set it up and some ideas for storage.

Pop of Petals and Thankful Thoughts

I have become addicted to cards with a Z fold of some kind, this must be the 8th or 9th one I have created in the last couple of months!  This one is in landscape format and I used the Pop of Petals Stamp Set to create my own Designer Series Paper.

I really love the clean lines and fresh colors of this card, but it would work in just about any color combination you can think of – why not give it a go and create your own DSP!

We are just coming up to the end of the first month for the 2018 Holiday Catalog, I am not sure if you are ready to start your Christmas cards just yet but the Joyous Noel Suite on pages 28 and 29 is a really good place to start.  A lovely stamp set, decorative paper, embellishments, glimmer paper and the cute Sprig Punch.

For You with Graceful Garden

The Graceful Garden Stamp Set is perfect for making a really peaceful and elegant card.  The ‘for you’ sentiment can be used for just about any occasion, birthday, anniversary, thank you, thinking of you, or simply ‘just because’

I have paired the stamp set with Mint Macaron and Sahara Sand which are peaceful colors as well and then a scattering of Basic Jewel Pearls to give even more of an elegant touch.
