Autumn Sympathy Card

This is my least favorite type of card to make.  I know it is at the bottom of the list for many people to make a sympathy card, especially if you were close to the person who passed away.  It is so hard to find your creative mojo when you have to create these types of cards.  The sentiment can easily be changed though to a birthday, get well, thank you or thinking of you card if you prefer.

The leaves were cut on my Silhouette Cameo with Autumn Spice cardstock from Stampin' Up!  I love how they came out. 

Thanks for stopping by!

School Pictures: Creative Packaging

Hello everyone!  Hope all is well with you.  I just wanted to stop in and share a little school picture packaging treat I created last month when Emma brought her school pictures home.  Things have been really hectic around here lately and I finally got a chance to sit down and create this post. 

I was really excited with how these turned out.  Hope you like them as much as I do!

The majority of the supplies are from Papertrey Ink.  The color inspiration came from the Oxford Collection by Basic Grey, love that line!  I used the Gift Card Greetings Die from PTI to create the base for this little treat.  The apples were made using some felt I bought from Michael's a while back and I used the Teacher's Apple Die Collection to die cut the felt.  A little time consuming, but well worth it.

Thanks for stopping by!
