Boy Loving Fall By Emilia van den Heuvel

Have you ever tried Stickable Stencils?  If you haven’t, then you need to!  I can’t tell you how much fun they are, they are the kind of thing you need to try yourself.  You are going to love this adorable layout created by the fabulous designer Emilia van den Heuvel.  Sometimes you may not know how to get started or where to begin.  Emilia shows us how to build from the foundation up using Stickable Stencils and a variety of mediums, along with chipboard and embellishments.

Boy Loving Fall

This layout is a great way to use up some of those leftover embellishments you have laying around, along with your stencils, inks, paste, and mists to give it a unique and outstanding flare.  Today you can learn how Emilia created her layout as you follow her step-by-step tutorial.  Let’s pop on over to the BoBunny blog where you can see more details of Emilia’s layout.  Step out of your comfort zone and see what you can create; you will be amazed how much fun you will have using Stickable Stencils. Have fun creating, my friends!

Autumn Blessings By Jeanne Jachna

The leaves have been very bright and radiant the last few weeks here in Utah.  When I came upon this card it reminded me of the beauty I have seen lately and got me inspired to make this card.  I always feel so blessed to live where I do; to enjoy the different changes of the seasons.  I just love fall!  This beautiful card created by Jeanne Jachna shows the bright and vibrant colors of fall.  I love how she gave some of the leaves a little extra dimension.

Pull out your inks and have some fun with the stamp Fall Foliage by Reverse Confetti.  The Fall Foliage stamp along with the Fall Foliage Confetti Cuts really make the perfect combination for an autumn-themed card.  Let me escort you on over to A Kept Life so you can see how this fun card all comes together.  You will also find many other wonderful projects created by Jeanne.  Handmade cards are such a treasure to receive.  Who will you send this one to?
