Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

I'm excited to participate in this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  For this month, we are to create some Christmas tags, and Nichole challenged us to use something different for the base of the tags.  I decided to use corrugated paper for the base, die cut with Papertrey Ink's tag dies.

Here are pictures of the tags individually:

The paper pad I used is Norland by The Farmhouse Paper Company.  It is the perfect companion to Melissa Phillips' Love Lives Here: Holiday stamp set.  Other Papertrey stamp sets I used were Celebrations and Stylish Sentiments: Holiday.  I also used various Papertrey Ink dies. 

Thanks for stopping by!

October birthday

Time for me to make another birthday card for a coworker turning 50.  I turned to the Cardabilities sketch #84 as my starting point. 

The paper collection is Teresa Collins Memories.  Stamps by Papertrey Ink.  Added a handmade flower, ribbon, and a pearl spray. 

Here is the sketch:
Thanks for taking a look!
