I was actually tired of all the 100 degree weather, so started in on fall cards. Well, it must have worked because it is so very nice and cool this morning!
On this card I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Four Seasons (126830), which is a hostess set. But did you know that you can place your own qualifying order to receive it? Or get with some friends and put your orders all together to qualify for hostess gifts. I am, of course, referring to online ordering, but if you are in my area, give me a call and we will set up a fun workshop. You will also receive a free catalog when ordering on line, if you need one.
I also used Teeny Tiny Wishes(115370), Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey, and Bashful Blue cardstock; chocolate chip, pumpin pie, and bashful blue inks; Large oval, Scallop Oval, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle, and 1" circle punches.
On the sentiment, I created the Chocolate Chip scalloped oval by punching the normal punch, then cut it in half and attached the halves to each end of the Pumpkin Pie punch. This gives the effect of a second, larger scallop.
And don't forget to decorate the envelope! ( I am getting better at this step :) )
Hope you all have a great day!!

DIRECTIONS: Create four matchbox (HINT: use a small piece of tape on the sides to hold together while forming the box) and attach them to a 5 1/2 " cardstock base with Sticky Strip (104294). I also used the corner rounder on the base (119275).
For the drawer pulls, I inserted eyelets, cut a 5" piece of Rich Razzleberry ribbon, tied it in half and inserted the two ends from the inside of the eyelet to the outside,pulling through to the knot and trimmed the ends at an angle.
I hope you enjoyed todays project and will give it a try. It really is easy and looks so nice. Have a great day!

I created this stationary folder after seeing one on page 147 of the current SU catalog.(You can view that one by clicking on the catty to the right.)
For the folder: Cut cardstock 12" x 8 1/4"; score with the 12" side toward top of Simply Scored Board (122334), at 5 7/8" and 6 1/8".
For the pocket: Cut cardstock 6 1/2" x 4"; score at 1/4" and 1/2" along the two short sides and the bottom. Cut out the two small squares formed in the corners by the 1/2" score lines. Fold along the score lines and apply Sticky Strip (104294) along the 1/4" fold. (HINT: I used glue dots (103683) to stick the bottom fold to the side folds then added the sticky strip around) Now stick the pocket to your folder on the right side with 1/4" space around the sides and the bottom. Decorate as desired and add your decorated stationary for a great gift!
Hope everyone has a great day!

Although my main plan for this venture is to share my love of papercrafting, I would also like to share another. If you love purses then check out my Miche site here ! We will have some exciting new products in August. Maybe I should warn those of you who have not seen this great product: It can be very addictive :)
