Fall Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Fall Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from the very talented Lavendergal.  If you've just happened to stop by my blog, please check out each of the blogs of the talented ladies who are participating in this blog hop.  To start at the beginning of the hop, please visit Kristen.

For my project, I have made this Thanksgiving card.

Outside of Card

Inside of Card

I used my Cricut Expression 2 Anniversary Edition and Gypsy to make the cuts.  The base of the card is from a pack of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock I have in my stash, all other cardstock is Bazzill.  The patterned paper backgrounds on the outside and inside are from the Creative Memories Primary Autumn Additions Power Palette.  The sentiment is from the Holiday Headlines Wood Stamps set by The Paper Studio.

The turkey was cut from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge at a height of 4 1/2 inches.  Here is a picture of my Gypsy screen, as well as the paper placed on the mat.  (Please disregard the "Happy Thankgiving" on the Gypsy screen and long strip of orange cardstock on the mat.  It was cut at a height of 3", but was too long to fit my card so I didn't use it for this project.)




I used Elegant Edges for the background on the outside and inside of the card.  I used the Oblong feature and cut it at a height of 6.75 inches.  I also used Hide & Contour so the bird would not cut.  Here is a picture of my Gypsy screen and the paper placed on the mat.

Now on to some blog candy!  Even though this is a Fall Blog Hop, I have a Summer mini album chipboard kit to give away.  All you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you.  I'd love for you to become a follower if you aren't already, but it isn't necessary to win. I will use random.org to draw the winner around 7:00 pm EST Sunday (8/28) night.  Here is a picture of the blog candy.


Your next stop is the talented Madylyn.

Here is a full line up of the blog hop participants in case you get lost.
