September Blog Hop Inspiration

You know autumn is in the air as cooler temps arrive, leaves begin to fall and the beautiful colors of the season emerge in all aspects of our lives.  I just fell in love with this inspiration piece, and I hope you do too!  Why not give Betsy's Faux Chalk Art tutorial a try?  Of if it isn't new to you, bring it back again!  This will give you an excuse to use one of your very favorite sentiment stamps!

 

Play around with fall colors and images to surround your faux chalkboard like the wreath in the inspiration photo.  Most of all, have fun with it and feel free to experiment!  We look forward to seeing your creations!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

Random-numbers

Colleen F

Colleen F. added touches of gold to her gorgeous project.  Loving the Ocean Tides background with the chalkboard-like stamping in white.  A great interpretation of the inspiration piece!

Michelle W

Michelle W. used black for her card background which echoes the chalkboard look from the inspiration piece. Love how she used Doodlie Do for her leaves, such a nice touch!

Rema T

Rema T. used Twig Wreath for her beautiful fall creation.  Her color selections are spot on and the contrast of the clean & simple sentiment provide a nice contrast.

Congratulation to all the winners!  Please email customer service and provide them with your full name along with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to.  Thank you to everyone for sharing your beautiful creations with us!
