Papertrey Ink Blog Hop: Wreaths

Hello everyone! I just wanted to share a card I made for the Papertrey Ink's September Blog Hop.
I have been holding onto a bag that I got from a little country store and I loved the kraft and black combination!  I used it as my inspiration for my project.  The look is very primitive, and when I saw the blog hop theme was wreaths, I thought now is the perfect time to use it!

 The inspiration bag is pictured below.  I can already see some other possibilities!!

I punched out some prim stars out of black cardstock with a little punch from EK Success.   
The wreath is from a Close To My Heart stamp set called Remarkable Wreath.  I didn't have the wreath set from PTI so I used that one instead.  The PTI supplies I used were Think Big Favorites #24, Sew Simple Borders and Classic Kraft cardstock.

This card is very simple as it only has two colors but I think it turned out pretty neat.

Thanks for stopping by!

Homespun Gratitude

Hello everyone!  Hope this finds you well.  I just wanted to share a with you a project that I made for the Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #130 Challenge: Using Heat N' Bond to Make Fabric Die Cuts.  I had another project in mind, bought all the supplies for it, then found out my alphabet dies were too small.  So I went another route.....  This little bucket is what I ended up with for my project.  The Thankful die is from PTI's Counting My Blessings die set.  I didn't have a pumpkin or leaves from PTI so I used one of the primitive pumpkins from My Favorite Things stamp set.  I used some homespun fabric and also some Classic Kraft felt from PTI.  The canvas ribbon is from The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.  I topped off the pumpkin with a little PTI button threaded with twine.  Hope you like it!

Although it wasn't what I had planned, I am happy with the result.  This could be used to give treats away at Thanksgiving, a hostess gift, or let everyone at Thanksgiving fill out a little slip of paper saying what they are thankful for this year.  I am already thinking of how I could decorate the little cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
