August Release Projects

We are wrapping it up today on the PTI blogs for the August Release. I'm absolutely feeling ready for fall after a few weeks of working with all these rich colors and fun fall products. Hope you are as inspired as I am. Just a few more weeks away.

I've shared a lot over the last five days. Got just a few more projects for you.

Birthday Classics: September and Leaf Prints Stitches Dies: There are some very defined lines in the main sentiment this month in Birthday Classics, which allowed for this strip treatment. And loving Nichole's Leaf Print Stitches dies. Makes this card so very special to have that stitched detail.

Happy Spooky Halloween: Fun, fun, fun stuff. :) A very simple card using just one stamp set. I thought the main images from the stamp set looked great stacked on top of each other.

Phrase Play #7: That die cut leaf detail is a crafter's dream. Adore it. I split up the individual elements in the die to create this card. The word "thankful" gets a gradient treatment courtesy of my Copics. The Center Stage Cover Plate was used for the burlap paper chevrons.

Tick Tock: I adore cuckoo clocks, so this was a treat for me. I created this card by bringing in elements from Embellished Elegance and Hands of Time. Very detailed and fun to create.

Autumn Adornments: What a delicious stamp set. The borders can be used for so much. I stamped the dotted one four times, in a square shape. Great background for a trio of cut scalloped rectangles from the Table Service die.

That's it for me. Time to rest! Whew!:) Remember all these awesome new products will be available tonight at 10 PM EST at I hope you consider adding some to your collection.

More inspiration below. Thanks for the fun this week! See you again in September.
