Hello, Rhonda Merry here with some Front Porch Kit Fun.
One of my favorite
things to create are mini albums or tag books adorned with fun
embellishments. I admit I have a lot of
great packaged items to break into but there is something extra special about
making your own. For me it’s not only getting creative but using up the scraps
from a project rather than throwing pieces away. Also, using the many stamps,
dies and punches I have picked up over the years.
This little book is titled “We Give Thanks”. Each page has a little journal area where
each of my family members will be able to write in what they are thankful for
this year. All of the embellishing was made up from the various scraps and
embellies that came inside the “It’s Fall Ya’ll” Front Porch Kit.
Here’s a look at each page.
The little pumpkin is made from punching out 3 ovals from
the orange patterned paper. I layered it
onto a 1’ chipboard circle to easily adhere the parts. Punched a little leaf sprig and free handed a
cork stem. I inked the edges if each oval and the leave with coordinating
inks. Once all of the pieces in place to
form your pumpkin and the glue is dried, adhere to your page, card or tag.
I used various dies to cut fall images from the cork sheet
included in the FPK.
So if you would like to get embellishing, go through your
stash, find those general shapes (circles squares, ovals, or labels) gather the
stamps with foliage, Thanks Yous and journal lines plus some specialty shapes
like stars, hearts, fall themed, etc. and start punching and stamping away with
your Front Porch Kit.
Happy September everyone! Although I'm pretty certain our cooler air will arrive in October, I get a little giddy when we can still have warm summery days with cooler evenings gradually making its way through this month.
And to start the fall season off in the right directions there are a number of things coming up to help us get creative. One of them being the Pinners Conference at the Arlington Convention Center. The Little Blue Hosue will have a booth so if you are planning on going, be sure to stop by and say hello to Miss Tracy and Kristyn.
I am also excited to announce that the Little Blue House will be premiering a Front Porch Kit this month! "It's Fall Y'All" is in the works!! Pre-orders will begin September 9th and a Full Reveal will be September 12th. We hope you will join us for sneak peak fun on the 9th. The design team members are working on their kits.
Plus, this month will bring a Little Blue House birthday. The Little Blue House turns 6. Yea!!
Stay tuned to see what creative things we have in store for you.
