Some New Holiday Tags

Hi Everyone!

I'm finally getting a chance to get these posted. I made them over the last few weeks but life has been crazy, including having 2 wisdom teeth removed this past Friday, so here I am.

I really like how these turned out. This is my first holiday season doing paper crafting so it's been fun to say the least. The top 2 pics are of large tags and the rest are small.

Sugar Creek Hollow Autumn Yummyness!

Good morning (or afternoon or evening depending on where you are) everyone! Happy Saturday!

Today's card for Sugar Creek Hollow (SCH) is one I made using a layout sketch that was provided to the Sugar Creek Hollow Design Team. I really enjoy creating cards from layout sketches. It's a great way to think more about the different elements you are going to use in a card instead of focusing on a layout. I highly recommend using layout sketches for any level papercrafter.

Along with the Design Team being asked to use the layout sketch, we were also asked to use any of the SCH Fall or Holiday digis. What an amazing, creative assortment!! While you are out and about on the 'net today, head on over to the SCH store and don't forget to visit the blogs of the other Design Team members. The ladies that are on this Design Team are incredibly talented and generous. Why not head on over to their blogs and leave them a comment. It will make their day, just as it has made mine to have you stop by here!

We also have a new Design Team member. Her name is Dawn and you can visit her wonderful blog here. Welcome Dawn!

Last but not least, if you are on Twitter, head on over to SCH's Twitter home and become a follower. I'll be posting some fun and interesting links up there.

Here are the details about the card:

Stamps: (SCH) Shabby Owl with Baby Punkins', Lord of the Harvest Tag and Autumn Goodies sentiment.
DP: Graphic 45 and Basic Grey
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink in Antique Linen, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo
Misc: Prismacolor colored pencils, Copics, ribbon and gold gems

Here is the sketch layout:

This is my card and a close-up below it.

I hope these cards inspire you to be creative in any way you enjoy. Whether it be paper crafting, needlework, knitting or any kind of hobby, ENJOY IT!
