Mushroom Family!

Hello everyone!  Sarah here today with a super fun post for you.... I can't believe that tomorrow is Thanksgiving for all of us here in the US!  and I also will put in a shameless plug that it's my birthday tomorrow as well.  So I thought I'd steer clear of Thanksgiving, Fall and birthday and I bring you this adorable card... well ok... I think it's adorable.  I am in love with these mushrooms-- seriously-- I LOVE when you come across a cut file that just makes you smile!  The sentiment is from Unity Stamps.  

Love this stinkin' adorable 'shroom

Happy Harvest Apple

Hello PPPR Friends!

It's Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, and today I am sharing this cute "Smiling Apple" shape card.
With Thanksgiving in just a couple of days (for our USA friends), I wanted to make and share one last Fall card before all the Christmas crafting and blogging begins.

PPPR "Smiling Apple" from the "Apple Picking" cutting files
To make it into a card, I made a duplicate layer of the apple and added it to the back at the top to create a folded back.

Thanks for stopping by and have a Great Thanksgiving Holiday week!

You Are The Bacon To My Egg

 Hi friends! This is Leah Schaeffer today sharing a fun little card I created for my bacon loving husband. LOL! This was actually his birthday card this year, though not exactly birthday themed. Either way, bacon is totally appropriate for any occasion. Keep that in mind next time you need an idea! =)
 The sentiment banner, toast, bacon and egg were all cut using my Silhouette Cameo and utilizing the print and cut feature. Even though, all those tiny pieces were all cut individually (yep, even including the tiniest heart, maybe the smallest thing I've ever cut before!)

 The other banners pieces were hand cut and were a quick add. Along with the sequin and tiny gems (gosh, I need to do that more often, such a pretty element to add!)

 Well otherwise a short post from me today since this was an easy project to put together. I was really just posting this to get you all hungry and your tummies rumbling for Thanksgiving this week! LOL! 
 Thank you so much for stopping in today, hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Time for school!

Hello! Ruth, here, and I hope you're having a great day!
Fall is definitely back to school time and with that comes school portraits when you've got kids. My layout today has a realistic portrait, but not necessarily the best. My 13 year old son is satisfied with it, though, so there will be no retakes.

What could be better for scrapping a school picture than the look of  cork? I just love that I can print a full page of cork for a background and even use it to fill a font for my projects.
I'll show you what I mean.
Perfection! A piece of notebook paper attached to a cork board and a cork title, too! And you better believe that you can find them in the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store! You know what else you can find?
The texture of the ruler : Pumpkin Spice Out West Patterned Paper
The journaling star : School Titles Cutting Files
The speech bubble : Speech Bubbles Cutting Files
and the school papers are in the School Days Chalkboards and School Days Pattern Pack

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you'd like to see more detailed pictures of my layout, feel free to stop by my blog Paper and Musings.

Be sure to link up your fall projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files for the current challenge (follow the link in the side bar on the right.) I can't wait to see what you create!
