August Papertrey Bloghop

Hello Everyone...time for another Papertrey Bloghop. Thanks for stopping by!! While you are here why not check out the rest of my postings. Unfortunately I cannot post to the PTI Gallery. I don't have a photo program to resize my pictures, so the gallery wont let me upload any. :(


My inspiration for fall was a kraft gift bag and remembrance of twig frames created as a kid.


The sentiment reads "Nuttin' is better than saying thanks so much".
All I did for this gift bag was cut the DSP down to size; Stamp the PTI Guide Lines background stamp in Chocolate Chip ink; stamp the tree then cut it out; stamp the images and cut them out; punch a fence; print off the sentiment; find some twigs and twine the ends together and voila my simple yet cute fall gift bag.

Ingredients:
Stamps: PTI My Punny Valentine; PTI Guide Lines; PTI Mega Mixed Messages; SU Season of Friendship
Paper: SU Kraft; SU Chocolate Chip; Martha Stweart fall DSP
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip; SU Summer Sun; SU Pumpkin Pie; SU Really Rust; SU Ruby Red; SU Old Olive; PTI Lemon Tart; PTI Fresh Snow
Accessories: Martha Stewart Fence punch; kraft gift bag; twigs; computer font sentiment; twine
