Memory Works Fall Blog Hop

Hello ~ Welcome to the Memory Works Fall Preview Blog Hop! Teamworks members are sharing fun projects featuring some of the newest products from the Fall/Winter Catalog! If you are just joining us, go back and start at the Memory Works Blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a Blog Hop Map at the end of this post :)
I've chosen to work with Lily Bee Design's Allspice collection.  I love the earthy colors in the papers from this kit. Unfortunately, I don't have any of my fall photos printed out yet, so you are going to have to imagine some amazing photos on these pages :) Let's get to it.....

We are Family:

I cut the circles from papers from the 6x6 pad.  This was perfect, because I have a hard time cutting shapes out of whole pieces of beautiful paper :)

Not only that, but using a miniature version of the paper to cut shapes from allows you to get in more details in a small area.

One Fall Day:

I have some great photos of my kids swinging on their tire swing for this page :)

I die cut some leaves, and stamped/cut out some acorns to go along with this cardstock sticker. 

Give Thanks:

Of course any product with a Thanksgiving theme, makes a perfect thank-you card!

Again, using the 6x6 paper really works well for cards so you can get in more of the pattern from the gorgeous paper. I topped it off with some twine to give it even more of a 'harvest-y' feel. 
I hope I've given you some inspiration for your fall projects.  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a prize sponsored by Memory Works.....now you're off to see Rosann!

CAS(E) this sketch #2, Dynamic Duos #25

This sketch from over at CAS(E) this Sketch:

Plus these colors from Dynamic Duos:

Equals this card from me:

This was my first week participating with CAS(E) this Sketch, and when I saw the sketch, I knew right away that I had the perfect stamp. Which is good, because I hardly ever use this one :)

The combination of these two challenges made a perfect clean and simple card. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Ok, here is the very short supply list....

cardstock - Stampin' Up! (Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White)
ink - Stampin' Up! (Basic Black)
stamps  - Stampin' Up! (Finest Flourishes, So Very)
other - Stampin' Up!(rhinestones); unknown (button)

Thanks for looking!
