Holiday Catalog Kick Off Gather Together Make n Take

It finally feels a little bit like fall here in North Georgia with some cooler temperatures, while it is still in the 80s there’s a hint of cooler weather coming our way. And after spending the evening last night with my daughter and her band, watching them and the other county’s High School bands perform their half time shows it feels more like fall to me too.

Check out this fun fall card that we make using the Come to Gather Suite of products found in the Holiday Catalog.

This suite is filled with those colors that make us think of fall and I’m loving the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack with it’s rich satin edge ribbon and linen thread – perfect for a range of products.

Today’s card uses the Brick & Motar 3d Embossing Folder to create some texture and interest in the background. Our embossing folders are perfect for this and make it quick and easy too.

Want to see how this card comes together? Check out my video tutorial and of course a printable PDF too.

Gather Together Mini Shipping Treat Box

Today’s treat box was created special for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off last Saturday and it will filled with some chocolate goodies. I had a lot of fun making them for my guests.

Any how here is the treat – a made with one of our Mini Shipping Boxes, so it will hold quite a bit.

Clearly I had a thing for caramel when I was shopping since when I started filling the boxes I realized I’d picked up 4 different kinds. Or maybe it was because I was looking at the color coordinating packaging! LOL! Do you ever do that?

I really love how these treat boxes turned out and I can’t wait to share the fun technique for creating these wonderful little leaves and stamping on the wood element pieces that I used to decorate the box. No inky fingers! Ahh….. the magic of stamping.

Why not check out my video tutorial? Not only will you see just how easy these treats were to make but I’ll share a couple of tips and tricks with you too.

#imbringingbirthdaysback in September with Gather Together

Ahh… the nip is in the air. Not – at least not for a while yet here in North Georgia. We’re having the hottest September in years. So it is kind of odd to watch all the leaves blowing across my yard when it’s in the 90s. I think mother nature is a bit confused this year.

The start of the school year and football season always makes me think of the fall color and cooler days, so I reached for the Gather Together Bundle to create this month’s birthday card.

What do you think? I used the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper for this card since I thought the texture was a great fit AND I love the fact it is part of our Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Promotion this month.

While this set has some lovely sentiments and images,

it didn’t contain a birthday sentiment which I wanted for this project so I reached for the Seaside Notions set since I thought the font was perfect for this card. What do you think? Of course you could use the “Wishing you well” sentiment also.

Check out my video tutorial to see how I made this card.

Want to make some too? Here is a PDF tutorial for you.
