I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Autumn Fun - Week 1 Challenge

Here is my second project for my Cartridge Challenge. This time I needed to use Stretch your Imagination.

I looked through this handbook and struggled with trying to find a cut I wanted to use. Honestly I remember when this cartridge first came out I just HAD to have it, and while I was trying to figure out what I was going to make using this cartridge I kept asking myself exactly why did I need this cartridge so bad??

After much deliberation I decided on the Autumn title cut. I used the "stretched version" on page 42 of the handbook. It was cut at 7". The Fun was cut from Gypsy Font. I used my Gypsy to size the font to match the Autumn word, then I welded together the u and n.

The two leaf borders were cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 1".

All paper used was from My Minds Eye Simply Delightful stack. I just love this stack. The colors and patterns are so..delightful. LOL

I inked the edges of a few of the papers and around my photos with Colobox Chalk in Chestnut Roan.

I finished off the page with a few buttons, twine, and a giggle stamp from a set I bought at Archiver's.

I am glad this one is done. I hope next week's choices aren't so difficult to utilize.
