September Apple Harvest Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick end of the month project I created using some cut a parts and cardstock from the Authentique Calendar Collection (retired). So let’s get started!

I cut a 5″x10 1/2″ piece of patterned cardstock and a 4″x8 1/2″ plain piece of cardstock out. I cut off the top edges of both and punched a hole in the top of each tag. I also inked the edges with chalk ink.

One sheet of cardstock had an assortment of cut a parts which I cut and selected the ones I would use on the tag.

I inked edges and adhered the cut a parts to the tag. Next I diecut leaves and leaf sprigs from the Funky Foliage Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus and glued under the cut a parts.

I also decorated the other side of the tag by adhering the smaller tag slightly off center of the larger tag.

Next I glued the September, Apples tag and people picking apples cut a parts onto the tag.

I placed more of the leaves and leaf sprigs under the September and apples tags.

I finished off by adding cording and thread to the leaves on both sides of the tag.

Hey Friend Card

Hi everyone! As I’m slowly getting back into the swing of crafting, from a busy couple of months of things pertaining to family and all things summer, I want to share a card I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team! This month’s theme is cards and I used the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlits along with a few other dies, embossing folder and thinlits by Eileen. So let’s get started!

I originally was going to cover a per-cut card base with the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlit and do the usual decorating. But when I I placed the Thinlits onto the piece of glittered cardstock ( I ran the die through the machine two times) it didn’t cut through. Instead of tossing I decided I would fold in half and create a card base. I did back the inside with a piece of light pink cardstock before decorating the front.

Next I cut out the circle from the Ornament Box Diecut and embossed with the Woven Leather 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly inked over the raised areas before adhering to the card base.

I dug into my big stash of scraps and cut out flowers, wreath and leaf sprigs from the following thinlits: Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. I placed Foam Pop Dots onto the back of two strips of patterned cardstock and placed onto the card base.

Next I glued a piece of wood looking cardstock under the raised patterned cardstock along with the wreath die.

I shaped the flowers and leaf sprigs with a Stylus and adhered to the card base.

I added Glossy Dots to the centers of each flower. Also I printed, cut and chalked the edges of a “Hey Friend!” sentiment and placed onto the card to finish.
