Have you guys seen Crate Paper's After Dark collection? It has some really great papers and embellishments, perfect for Halloween layouts and cards. The big die cut "BOO" letters are from the ephemera pack. They're outlined in gold for a bit of shine. The skull key adds a little bit of spookiness, but otherwise it's pretty tame.

What says "fall" to you? Is it hay rides? Apple picking? Changing leaves? All of the above? I wanted to capture the feel, colors and textures of fall on this card so I went with traditional fall colors paired with woodgrain, gingham and houndstooth papers. This card makes me feel like putting on a cozy sweater, sitting by the fire and enjoying a hot cup of tea (before heading out for a hay ride, of course). :)

Raise your hand if you remember boom boxes. Go ahead, don't be shy. I couldn't resist pairing this die cut from Simple Stories So Rad with the sentiment, "Tune In For a Great Birthday". I'm thinking this card would make a young boy really happy.

Today we're featuring Dear Lizzy Documentary on the Paper Issues blog. This is such a pretty collection! The mint green, salmon and fuschia drew me in (as you can probably tell from the card I made). Pop on over to the Paper Issues blog for more inspiration and to see what my fellow design team members created with this beautiful collection.
If you love what you see, and you absolutely HAVE to have this collection, you can use the code LISA20 to get 20% off of your order from the Paper Issues store.

Happy Tuesday! I'm back today with another teacher thank you card made with Echo Park Teacher's Pet. I added in some items from my stash to mix things up a bit. I really like how this one came out.

Round 2 of Paper Issues' How 'bout Them Apples linky party started today. Link your projects having to do with fall, apples, fall colors, etc. for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Issues store. You'll find all of the details on the Paper Issues blog today.
Here in upstate NY, fall is officially upon us and so is apple picking season. I see a lot of baking in my future — apple crisp, applesauce, muffins and more.
Do you have a favorite apple recipe? Please share if you have a link. Thank you!

Today I'm sharing a very simple teacher thank you card. This came together quickly using just two patterned papers and a 3x4 card from Echo Park Teacher's Pet. I love the cozy plaid paired with the stars and the overall color scheme.
