Create Along With Us October 2016

Create Along with Us--October 2016
Hello everyone! I hope your fall season is cool and crisp. We are somewhat cooler in Texas, but not by much. Today's card is for Create Along With Us at Papertrey Ink.


The release this month had a Holiday theme, so I used Danielle Flander's card as my inspiration. I adore the patterned paper background and the Holiday tag as the focal point.

Danielle Flanders-Homespun with Heart
I had grand plans to combine this project with a video in order to enter Papertrey Ink's Star Search Video Contest. I have never produced a tutorial video, I don't have the lighting to produce one, the set up, on and on. However, you never learn anything unless you try, right? So in my first attempt at producing a video, I give you the details for the products used and a hint at the process. The video lasted longer than the 3.5 minute time limit, and it's just as well. I attempted to film yesterday, but I only had a few hours to accomplish the task. I didn't make the deadline, but I certainly learned a lot!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Products used are all Papertrey Ink, unless noted:

Paper: Berry Sorbet, White, double-sided foam adhesive [amazing!]
