All About Fall Blog Hop







All About Fall Hop

Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons! I'm so happy you could join us for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts, and projects that are All About Fall!!  You'll find tons of ideas throughout the hop -- from decorations to gift ideas and more, and we hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!! This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to catch both days for maximum ideas (you'll find the entire line-up below my post)!! I'll just be posting today, but I'll definitely be hopping today AND tomorrow!  Before the leaves change color and fall... let's get hopping!!

If you've hopped over from Sandy's blog, then you are in the right place!!  If you've just stopped by to visit my blog and you'd like to join our All-About-Fall FUN, then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Lynda's blog. You definitely want to start at the beginning, because we have a WONDERFUL Grand Prize for one lucky hopper today -- A $25 Gift Certificate for Designs On Cloud 9!!  To be eligible, please visit each "Blog Hop Stop" and leave a comment!!  One random winner will be chosen on Wednesday, September 21st (giving you plenty of time to finish the hop)... For more details on what you could choose if YOU are the winner, please be sure to visit our sponsor:





Designs on Cloud 9


For the hop today, I actually decided to do a layout.  I KNOW!!! Crazy, right?  I haven't done a layout in quite a while, so I thought I'd try one for this hop.  Here it is:


What do you think?  Does it look Fall-like enough?  :)  


Here a close-up of the left-hand page.  I believe the Autumn title was a freebie from SVG Cuts, the tree came from the Lettering Delights Woodsy SVG set, the house, leaves, and rake came from the Lettering Delights Feels Like Autumn SVG set, and the deer came from the Lettering Delights Sweet Nothings SVG set.  I embossed the house with my Argyle Cuttlebug folder, the grass with my Forest Branches folder, and the trees with my Plum Blossom folder.  All of the "wood" on these pages was stamped with my Pink By Design Distressed Wood background stamp.  That long mat will hold some journaling...someday. :)


For the right-hand side of the layout, I used the Lettering Delights Feels Like Autumn SVG set to cut out the tree, the apples, and the bushel of apples.  The owl and branch came from the Lettering Delights Woodsy SVG set.  I inked up everything with my Fluid Chalk inks and added some doodle lines.  Then, I added some ribbon and patterned paper to finish up the photo mats and add balance to the page borders.  


Here's a closeup.  To add a little more texture to the leaves on the ground, I crumpled them up and then inked them...one by one.  Trust me, it took FOREVER, but I think it was worth it.  


Another closeup.  By the way, the grass was cut with my Martha Stewart grass border punch.

I'm entering this in Love to Crop's Happy Fall Ya'll Challenge.  You should check it out!

Well, I hope you like it.  It took me a really long time to finish it, but I really love it.  

Now, how about some BLOG CANDY????  YAY! One lucky follower will win a Pink By Design Big Thoughts stamp set.  


Here's what you need to do to have a chance to win:

1.  Be a follower of my blog and leave a comment letting me know.  Make sure you leave your e-mail address for me.

If you'd like EXTRA CHANCES to win, you can do any of the following.  Just make sure you leave me a new comment each time you do something extra so you get extra entries in my "drawing".
