More for Fall
With Thanksgiving a week away, there's still plenty of time to get those creative juices running. Let these great Fall products inspire you to create projects for everything from the changing of the leaves, Thanksgiving, and don't forget Football and tailgating!Nothing beats dressing up a project with a quick border! Try adding one of these Leaf Borders (Product # 521, 522, 523) to a quick mini-album or card, or try what I did by making a quick Name Card for your Thanksgiving table! A simple pocket design with a slide out tag will allow each of your guests to write down what they are thankful for this year and will allow you to preserve those memories easier than ever!
One of my favorite new designs has to be this elegant Autumn Leaf Round Border, it's simple yet stylish design couldn't be easier to use. To embellish this one, try using an ink pad in natural colors to add a rustic feel. Feeling extra creative...venture into new territory and liberally spray with one of the new spray inks for an immediate transformation (we've tried Glimmer Mist, Walnut Inks, and Maya Road-all with EXCELLENT results!); embellish with glitter, bling, or try adding a little "Smooch" (a pearlized accent ink) to bring out the leaf details!
For all you crafters looking for a little flair, try adding our new Modern Leaves Chipboard design, it's perfectly sized for just about any project and couldn't be more versatile! Use it as a border, an embellishment or even as an oversized photo corner for that big family post-turkey portrait (don't you LOVE that idea)!
We're also very excited to introduce you to our newest chipboard alphabet design! Our new Script Alphabet measures just about 2.5" tall and 1.5" wide (depending on the letter) and so far is an all capitals alphabet. I love this design particularly for something special, like holiday celebrations or weddings; I can't help but think it's perfect for monogram designs and titles for a special layout!
Okay folks...are you ready for some FOOTBALL?! Where I come from Fall means Football; and Football means Friday nights at the High School game, tailgate parties, time with friends, and maybe a quick pick up game with the kids! So grab your favorite team sweatshirt, put your game face on and celebrate your love of the game with a quick mini album embellished with a few of our Mini Footballs. Aren't they cute...no wait, football can't be cute...aren't they're AWESOME (insert manly grunt here)! Cheer your favorite high school team on to victory with our Megaphone Mini Album combined with your school's monogram for a truly unique project!
Now how is that for some school spirit...each of our Chipboard School Titles are designed to work perfectly with the Megaphone Album as well as the 2" tall die cut varsity letters too! Somebody blow the whistle and let's play some football!
