Back To School/Fall Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my Blog. If you hopped over from Marie, then you are in the right place. If you happened to of stumbled on my blog and would like to play along. Please do so by starting at the beginning with  Thank You Sylvia for putting this Fun Blog Hop Together.

Please make sure to stop by all of the blogs as there are some really talented ladies with Fabulous projects on this blog hop. And I am sure there are some offering up some Yummy Candy like me and I wouldn‘t want you to miss out.

So Here is my Project,

I decided to go with a Fall project.  I loved the sidestep card from yesterdays hop so much I thought I would try my hand at another.  the adorable files are Paper Piecings again from Treasure Box Designs.  This set is called Fall Boy and I just adore it.  The Paper I got from a K&CompanyStack I just picked up at Michael's.  It is great, the first half of the stack is all Halloween papers and the second half is all beautiful Fall Backgrounds.  So I used everything from the Fall Boy kit here plus I added the sign from another of their awesome files that I own called Camping fun.  I showcased some of that awesome set in a a hop I did yesterday if you would like to go check that one out click here.  There is Blog Candy there too up for grabs through Monday.

I also added the Y in Yall for my Title, I used my Cuttlebug die Baby Face for that.  I used my Cuttlebug embossing folders, Swiss Dots for the centers of the flower which are popped up on the foam squares just like the ones I am giving away today.  Also for the corn, and I love how it turned out, I used the tiny bubbles embossing forder for them.  Of course I did a lot of inking on all of the pieses to give everything depth.  My white gelly roll pen for the eyes is a must.  I cut a second pocket for the boy.  The crow, I love....came out so great using a white ink to highlight him.  The sign words HAPPY I did on my Cricut with my awesome Cri-Kits Gel pens, I used a black glitter pen. I used the edge of the bird as a template to draw on the boys mouth, as there was none and I am so bad at free hand on faces. 

Here is a side view of my card to show you how it works.  Also Dawn Griffith has an awesome video on how to make these side step cards if you are interested click here.  I think that about covers my project for today.
