Blessed and Thankful!

Blessed and Thankful!

I’ve been noticing subtle changes all around!  Temperatures are dipping at night and birds are gathering for migration.  Fall is in the air!  Even though I know I’ll be spending more time indoors, I enjoy the thoughts of baking and the family gatherings that fall brings.

If you love Fall too then you’ll ADORE the Simple Stories Fall Farmhouse collection!  It’s filled with gorgeous colors of fall.. orange, golden yellow, greens and navy.   The images are all you’d expect… beautiful florals, pumpkins, and leaves with some added comfy cozy to make you fuzzy inside!

All my cards start with pretty background papers from the 6x8” pad.  The smaller sheets mean a smaller print making them  perfect for cardmaking.  The pad even includes cut apart 3x4” journaling cards.

I love mixing and matching the prints and adding layers of card stock.  I start with a plain white paper cardstock base and top it with a slightly smaller solid print panel cut from the Simple Basics Kit.  The  papers are perfectly coordinated to match the prints.

There’s two different packs of Bits and Pieces in this collection.  The Iconic bits and pieces include mostly images like pumpkins, florals, leaves etc while the  Journaling set includes tags, sentiments, tabs and pieces to customize with handwritten notes.

I love the chipboard stickers for adding dimension.  They take a card from flat and ordinary to exquisite and special.

The collection includes color coordinated enamel dots and YES!  Washi in three different prints… orange gingham, colorful stripes, and floral!

It’s a feast for the eyes isn’t it?  I just cant get enough of the orange and navy!

There’s lots to be grateful for!  What a great way to let your loved ones know they’re in your heart today and always.
