By August 25, 2012Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the August 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge…

This month's inspiration is all about autumn patterns, textures & textiles.  Think warm & cozy woolens, houndstooth, tweed, burlap, felt, corduroy. herringbone and even argyle.  You can create your own custom patterns & textures with stamps or impression plates.  Or you can incorporate actual fabrics, felt, yarn and other textiles in a creative way. Have fun experimenting and perhaps stepping out of your creative box.

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (August 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!



Jen Gall used houndstooth and canvas as her autumn textiles for this challenge.  I love how the flower from The Sweet Life looks when stamped on the fabric.  It really brings a whole new style to the image, giving it even more possibilities!

Maureen P put together several different textures on her stunning card.  The layering is simply amazing and I love how the flower balances everything out.  The color combination is so beautiful as well.

Jodi E combined burlap with polka dots on her autumn project.  Love how she added a layer of it on top of the Notched Flower too.  Just a really pretty card that the recipient will surely love!

Congratulations to the winners!  Please be sure to send a note to customer service and provide the email address you would like your $25 gift certificate sent to.  And a big thank you to all of the other participants!  I think it is safe to say that we are all ready to officially begin crafting for fall now!  Thank you for sharing your creativity with us!
