Fall Projects

I've at a retreat at the Covered Bridge Inn in Weatherford and I'm actually being productive! Here are some of the projects that I've been working on. I am in love with the colors in the Autumn Meadows Designers Series Paper. The color combination is Taken With Teal, More Mustard, Really Rust, and Chocolate Chip.

I've been wanting to make the pumpkin basket with the Pillow Box die for some time now. It is fun and easy to make. It will make a great hostess or thank you gift.

I thought you might get a good giggle about what my set up looked like for the above photos. I had to make do with what I had. Another good example of how cropping can really enhance your subject matter!

Happy stamping,

Sharon Cheng
