Papertrey Ink AUGUST Blog Hop / Mojo 101

THE CHALLENGE:

August is the month that Papertrey celebrates all things autumn! What better way to get inspired for the upcoming season change than each other! Our challenge to you is to create a project inspired by any aspect of fall. How about texture like fabrics, burlap, courduroy or stitching. Then there is color with hues found in autumn leaves, fall berries and other late season delectables. Patterns or motifs such as leaves, pumpkins, wheat and more. Try to use these attributes in fun and interesting ways that may be a little out of your normal comfort zone. We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

I have been a closet Papertrey Ink junkie for a long time . . . but I decided that this month I would take my purchases and put them to use for my first ever blog hop with Papertrey.

Stamps: Vintage Picnic (Papertrey Ink) Paper: Retro Mod Squad - Vintage Collection (Core'dinations), Sugared (Basic Grey), Recess (Basic Grey), Solar White Classic Crest (Neenah) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine (Tsukineko), Vintage Sepia Versafine (Tsukineko),Creamy Caramel Classic Ink (SU!) Accessories: New Leaf Vintage Buttons (Papertrey Ink), 5/8 Dark Chocolate Swiss Dot Satin (Papertrey Ink), sewing machine (Singer), brown thread (Sulky), nestabilities circle dies (Spellbinders), sponge, white crochet thread.

Feel free to scroll to the next post to see another project using Papertrey Ink stamps! Thanks for visiting!!!

I love the Vintage Picnic set. And your cards make such good use of it. The bitty dotted ribbon adds just the right touch.

Super job!
