{So blessed} | Practical Scrappers Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop


Hello fellow papercraft-y people!!  Welcome to the October blog hop for craft hoarders!  :)  I adore using up my stash, and this month's hop is all about fall or Halloween.  You should have arrived here from Bobbi's blog.  Her tag is amazing!!  For this hop I'm sharing a fall layout called "so blessed" -- and I have a giveaway!  First up, the project:


I used Little Yellow Bicycle "Acorn Hollow" stash.  I started with the light brown paper with the striped edges and misted it with Heidi Swapp Bronzer Color Shine.  I fussy cut my own large tree in the style of the collection, inked the edges of the treetop, and sewed along the tree trunk.  I then stamped "give thanks" in the tree.  



I fussy cut a small tree and heart for the bottom part of the large tree.



Next I matted my 5x7 photo with canvas and distressed paper and framed it with a few border pieces including "Today is a gift...be ever thankful".  I tied bronze and hemp twine around my photo and included a button and wood heart.



***GIVEAWAY TIME!***
