The Stamp Review Crew: For All Things Edition

Thanks for joining us for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop!  This week we are using one of my favorite fall sets of all time, For All Things.  I used this set SOOO much when I first got it that I needed some help with ideas to use it this time around! :) I found inspiration for color and layout at Fusion Card Challenge

I've never used traditional Halloween colors with this particular set, so this was the perfect choice!  I used Tangelo Twist, Basic Black and Soft Suede.  You can't really see it in the photo but the black circle is embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder for some extra texture.  My leaves are fussy cut and my final touch was some gold thread in a jumble in front of my top leaf. :)  

I hope you enjoyed my  card. Thanks for stopping by!  Click on the links below to continue on thru the hop!

The Stamp Review Crew: Happy Scenes Edition

Welcome to our first Stamp Review Crew blog hop for October!  It sure is starting to feel like fall here in Northeastern Indiana. Last week we wore shorts to the football game. This week we wore winter coats! I don't know if I'm quite ready for fall because it means that winter is right behind it and I loathe winter. lol

I'm really excited about the stamp set we are sharing with you today, Happy Scenes. I am using this stamp set along with my new Project Life kit, Seasonal Snapshot 2015, from the Holiday Catalog. I will be doing this as a Stamp Camp class and I can't wait to get started! I am using the Variety Pack 2 Page Protectors for this class, so some of the pages are not as wide and you can see the next pages in the book. I really love the look!  The scrapbook will start with Back to School, head into fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, and finish off with Christmas and winter.  Happy Scenes was a great set to start off my album, almost like a title page so you know what the scrapbook will be about. Here is what the first page will look like.

And a close-up shot of each of the 4x6 cards:

I had so much fun creating the little scenes behind the window panes with the Happy Scenes stamp set.  I sponged on extra color over my scenes for the sky and ground, and on the bottom card I used our new Fine-Tip Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds to add some little snowflakes. LOVE that glue!

I hope you enjoyed my scrapbook page. Thanks for stopping by and make sure to click on the links below to continue your way through the hop!
