September Release Projects

It's been a fun release, but it's time to put this puppy to bed. :) Here are the rest of my projects for the month. I hope you find them inspiring and don't hold it against me if your To-Buy List changes a bit. :)

"Snowflake Medley", "Happy Harlequin", and "Happiest of Holidays". There's just so much you can do with those diamond shapes:). 

Eyelets, a die cut, a strip of paper, and some silver cardstock make the most perfect little cookie cutter card out of "Gingerbread Lane". I imagine you can do this with lots of die/stamp sets in your collection. 

How about a modern take on a snowman using "Bits & Buttons"? I think the top hat from "Made of Snow Mini" tilted at an angle adds so much personality. I used "Peace, Love, & Joy" as well. This card is so easy to make. 

"Mistletoe and Holly" team up with the kissing couple from "Love & Marriage". From the buzz I'm hearing, I know everybody loves that striped tag from "Do Me a Favor Tags". Count me as a hug fan.

"Heart-2-Heart #8". I had the idea of using the tree tops with the previously released "Falling Leaves". Worked like a charm. "Heart-2-Heart #7" got called to duty too. Love how there's two different trees, but they have the same patterns for a cohesive look.  There's a few sets that have the sentiment "Falling For You". Maile's "Autumn Acorns" comes to mind. Might be a good fit with the fallen hearts on this card. I just didn't have the room. 

"Winter Snow Globe". The Lincoln kids would like to thank PTI for the opportunity to eat all the non-red and green M&M's in the package I bought in order to make this project. They very much enjoyed that.

Why not make a little candy wrap and have a circle cut out (Limitless Layers 1.75" Circle) to show some candy in the snowglobe? Stamp the inside back of the packaging with a sentiment and the globe. I made the tri-fold packaging to fit a small zip lock baggie I had. You can find similar items at Michael's. And goodness gracious, I've used eyelets twice this release. That's more than I've used them in like four years!

There's more goodies to see. Click on over. Thanks for joining us this month.
