Fall Banner - #Simply G45

By Katelyn Grosart 


"The Summer here on the west coast of Canada feels like it's been here forever and I can't believe that I'm actually saying this, but I can't wait for Fall to arrive. Fall is one of my favourite seasons, so creating a project for Fall comes easily to me. By using the Kraft and Red Alpha Banners, along with some paper and fussy cut images from the ABC Primer and Place In Time Deluxe Collector's Editions, I was able to create this beautiful Fall banner.  I hope that you enjoy my project and learn some new tips along the way. Read all the way down as I also have a tutorial for this Fall Banner so that you can recreate it at home." ~Katelyn

Tip: Make sure to ink the edges of the Alpha tags using a coordinating colour of ink.

Tip: To make some of the fussy cut images pop on the Alpha Tag, adhere some fall leaves behind the images.

Tip: For the ribbon at the top of the tags and what the tags sit on, use the ribbon from the Alpha Banners, you get a ton of ribbon and will have some leftover for another project.

Fall Decor - Crate, Tag, & Jelly Jar

By Lena Astafeva


“Autumn is a very beautiful season, but it is a bit cold. So it is nice to drink hot tea with tasty jam in the evening. A nicely decorated jar of jam may become a pleasant gift to your close friend.

Today I want to show how else I use the Graphic 45 stamps .

We can turn the usual craft paper into beautiful paper with the stamps. We can create any picture. Then we can decorate any jar of jam with this paper.

Also, you can nicely decorate your home and create a cosy atmosphere. I’ve painted a wooden box and made drawings with stamps and now the box is nicer than it was before.” ~Lena
