I’ve got fall fever! Yesterday I spent the day shopping around for a few items to add to my fall decorations. Today I am going to clean the house and start putting the fall goodies in place! I love this time of year because I the humidity and heat start subsiding just a bit and I know we only have another month or so until we can shut the air conditioning off! I love the colors of the decorations and even though the outside is still sunny/tropical, no leaf changes etc… I don’t care. Inside, it feels like fall! I found a few really cool pumpkins at HomeGoods and a pumpkin platter that I just absolutely LOVE! I probably won’t use it for Thanksgiving serving but rather keep it on display. Seriously, it’s my new favorite piece. When I get everything done and set up I’ll take a few pix and post them here.
I have a layout and cool technique to share with you today. I used the Webster’s Pages Nature’s Storybook collection, except the base paper is from the Winter’s Wings collection. I took some of the vellum and cut it into very thin little strips then curled it with the wrong side of my exacto knife, just like you would do curling ribbon when wrapping a gift. I added these little curls in with my flowers/leaves etc. I am really loving how it turned out. What do you think?
I love working with lots of different patterned papers. I’ve been thinking of ways to pare down my stash and streamline my stuff. My go-to’s are usually BG and WP. I also love Collage Press, Graphic 45, and MME. They are the easiest for me to work with. I acquire some of the other products at times and then they seem to sit there because I just seem to go for these 5 manufacturers most of the time. It’s not that I don’t love some of the other stuff, it just doesn’t get used as much. So, my question… should I sell some stuff on ebay or etsy. Is there some other where/way else to sell it? I’m open for suggestions… so if you feel like it, share with me what you think?!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a magnificent Monday! ~Amy Tara~
