Imaginisce's "Happy Harvest" Release

This week Imaginisce releases the new Happy Harvest collection (make sure you check out the Imaginisce blog for giveaways!)...and here's a couple of projects I made with it...

This layout is for my's her driveway in the fall.  So pretty!  

I used this sketch to make it.  I like the clean graphic style of it.

To create "Home" I just used my Silhouette Studio and the Biondi font and had my Silhouette cut it out of the same color of Bazzill cardstock I'm using for my background. Then I just adhered it right to my page.

I popped up my photo and the flag banner (Silhouette shape: "2 layer banner border") with foam adhesive and added some gold i-rock studs to the green die cut (Silhouette shape: "vintage flower stem") and up by the owl.

And then I made this card...

Erin Bassett - Imaginisce - Fall CardThose canvas stickers are so fun! I removed the sticker part by just picking at it until I just had the canvas...then I frayed the edges and sewed it to the front of the card.

I also embossed the orange patterned paper with my Cuttlebug "D'ving Swirl" folder and then used my favorite Powder Puff chalk ink to emphasise the swirls.

Pin It! {Pinterest LA Meet Up}

Pinterest LA Meet Up 11 Last Thursday night Pinterest had a L.A. meet-up at Urbanic Paper Botique in Venice.  Such a cute shop!!  Seriously.  A dangerous shop to go into if you're a paper or stationary addict!


Here's the first stop when we got there...a name tag table just outside the store.
