September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Fall Favorites

Can you believe it's time for the September stamp of the month blog hop?  Even if it still feels like summer, our thoughts are turning to fall and this cute set, Fall Favorites.  (If you're already hopping, then you should have arrived here from Melinda Everitt's blog.  Hopping is easy; once you're ready to leave here, you'll go check out Krista Ritskes' blog.)

The Clementine paper pack seemed like the perfect pairing with the Fall Favorites stamp set, and I love how they work with my photos.  This beautiful sketch is from the new Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1 magazine.  If you're a scrapper and card maker, you're going to want this guide.  Best of all, it's only $7.95!

You can see the stamping better here on this close up of the left page:  After stamping the "fall" sentiment, I inked up "Favorites" only from the tag to stamp beside it.  Also, I repeatedly stamped the outline stamp to make a border along the bottom.

On the right page, I continued the border and then stamped the other sentiment and the pumpkin.  I used a combo of inks and markers with a blending pen to color the pumpkins.

Aren't my pumpkins sweet?  We are so blessed that the girls' cousins all live nearby!  If you'd like to create your own version of this layout, make plans now to attend my scrap class on Sunday, 9/23!  You'll be able to customize your layout for summer or fall.  Let me show you how!

If you have time, I'd love to know that you stopped by!  Now go see what Krista created!
