Sweater Weather...

I don't know about you, but it is certainly turning into sweater weather here. When I found a picture from 2013, I knew I wanted to capture the warmth of my family, with the new Pumpkin Spice Scrapbooking stamp set! 

Super cut images, adorable title and great accents for backgroubd stamping and more! The images in this set could easily be used for winter time too!

I grabbed my Pumpkin Spice paper and got to work. 

I stamp a variety of sweaters on pattern paper, card stock and even white daisy. 
In my Facebook group DanYellScraps and Friends, I gave some tips for creating easy to color sweaters in a snap. 

Here is my finished layout!

If you are looking for this stamp set, paper or any other supplies for you craft area,  please be sure to check my online store for all your needs! 

Thanks for looking and leave a comment on which sweater is your favorite! 



Give them in style...

I love gifting cards to friends and family, especially when they need a quick pick me up, or have done something kind. So I am sharing with you today a picture of how I package my cards up for them.

I always get compliments on how nice the card folio looks and holds the cards. 

For this particular set, I only have 4 cards and envelopes inside, however I could probably put 2 more in, one on each side, to make a total of six. 

I'd love to hear what you do when gifting a set of cards?

Add a little spice... pumpkin

Okay, so I am not making a latte or anything, but I am whipping up 16 cards from the new Pumpkin Spice Cardmaking Workshop from Close to My Heart. 
Check out all of the cards in this 7 min (well just under) process video. 

Have you ever noticed that little etched line on your ctmh blocks? I love that line, because not only can I line up my stamp evenly on my block, but I can also use it to line up my placement on my project... just check out those dots... pretty on point... pun intended! 🤣

The kit comes with instructions to create 16 cards from the supplies included. One of those supplies is a roll of Rose gold shimmer trim. OMGee that stuff is sooo pretty... check out how this banner just popped when RG shimmer was added. 

Fonts can make or break a Stamp Set. Honesty it can, so I was pleasantly surprised when the two style of fonts in this set, were paired together in an eye pleasing fashion. Check out the bold against the thin font, such a great contrast, that you don't notice my off center shimmer trim... well maybe you did?! 😏

This dotted background was actually soooo easy to make. Three inks, 2 rows of dots in each ink! Boom you have this gradient feel. However, what happens if you only have 1 dark color... dig deep into the old is new again technique, 2nd and 3rd generation stamping will work really well here. You can see it in my process video.... look quick it goes fast.🧐
I hoped you enjoyed the video, and some of my comments and tips. 

If you need a CTMH maker, I am soooo your girl. Catch me on Facebook and YouTube or place and order here any time. 
Thanks for your stopping by!
