Sometimes when an artist keeps things simple, that is when they are most creative. This month we are sticking to the basics. A little twine, kraft paper, crisp black, sprigs of greenery, perhaps even a few pinecones. Mix and match these elements to create your own paper crafty project. Make a kraft tag to frame your sentiment. Use a mini clothespin to clip a die-cut in place. Finish a length of twine with a basic bow. Let the inspiration above be your guide and allow your creativity to flow!
-Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on September 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge".

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELCTED WINNERS:
Greta H. used the Monthly Moments Journal Card Pocket #1 paired with Turning a New Leaf to create this beauty. The combination of the kraft envelope, black and green makes for a sophisticated project with lots of pop.
Birgit made a sweet Christmas card with the new Christmas Critters and Winter Village stamp sets. The greenery sprig from Christmas Greens a great finishing touch and helped tie in the inspiration photo.
Teddra embraced a fall theme with her creation. I love how she opted to use an oval to frame the beautiful sentiment, it really helps to break up all of the right angles on the rest of the project. The leaf sprig is the perfect thing to create interest and a pop of color.
Congratulations to all of the winners! Please send a note to customer service and include your full name along with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thank you to everyone for playing along!
