Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop: Is it Sweater Weather Yet?

Welcome to the Sweater Weather stop for the Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop.  You may have come from Kim's blog using the Thankful Tablescape Kit-weren't they AMAZING? Or, perhaps you're traveling backwards and came from Yapha's Harvest of Thanks post. Either way, you are lucky to be here at my post!

I enjoy summer. Don't take me wrong, but I love fall and winter. Bundling up, brisk winds, and moody skies get my heart a-singing. Stampin' Up! Must know this because they designed another fall Designer Series Paper set just for me. I'm so lucky.

Project #1

When I opened the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper Pack, I ohhed and awwwwed and realized that this paper was not just for fall. My first card is for not fall, but my dad. (Shh! Mom, don't tell him). I might change that to a birthday sentiment so I can give it to him in February.  I used the Sweater Weather Designer Paper as a background here in two layers. The deer head is from the stamp set Remembering Christmas, also in the Holiday Catalog. I just had to use it for my dad, though.

Project #2:
A fall quilt. This paper made me want to curl up under a quilt and read all day, so I decided to make a quilt card:

More details will be on my blog about this card, including a how to video next week, but for now, know that I used the Hexagon punch for my arrows. See the little dealy-bop on the tag? I took a scrap of paper, fringed it, and folded it fro an accent. Easy and fun.

Projects #3 and #4: Seasonal Treats.

The Trick or Treat is from Tags 4 You and I used the Label Bracket Punch for the focal point, which coordinates perfectly with my Sweater Weather Belly Band on my envelope framelit treat holder. (again, come back next week to see how to make it).

The snowman card isn't a fall project. I know. I know. need to get started on your Christmas Cards early, right? Plus, the Sweater Weather Paper is so versatile! I had to show you how to use it for Christmas!  Plus, this card has a secret:
"Warm wishes," from the Sweater Weather Paper!

Cool, huh? Well, there's many more cool projects on this blog hop to view and drool over! Click on over to Yapha's post featuring Harvest of Thanks or go backwards to Kim's Thankful Tablescape. Either way, hop your way through 11 blogs of great ideas!

Happy Creativity!
