Make It Monday 137


Happy Wednesday, everyone!  The Kraft Journal has a sketch for us this week!  Here it is:

I had gotten a sweet little pad of 6x6 fall papers by Simple Stories, and I couldn’t wait to dive into it!  The patchwork and gingham made me think of the Perfectly Preserved set, so I mixed them all up and this is what came out:


It’s a little more “fussy” than I usually do, but I think it’s kinda fun!  Here’s some closeups:


And while I was at it, I made some mini cards; just a quarter sheet of Crumb Cake cardstock folded in half with some Gingham wheel accents and some small images from the same paper pad:



The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts….they make cute little notecards to tuck into someone’s lunch or gift bag!  When I get my Envelope Punch Board, I can make envelopes too!  It’s on my next order! 

Have a happy day!
