Sunflowers and Pumpkins Blog Hop

Its pumpkins and sunflowers time!!! What a great representative of fall. The Design Team's challenge this month was to choose a color - orange or yellow??? With that being said, they had no idea why they were even being asked what color had to do with their project ... hee hee!!! They then each got a file to think outside of the box with the color. HMMMM, guess its time for the reveal, huh???

Our wonderful Design Team for this hop consists of:

Lisa W.~ http://mycraftyspaces.blogspot.com

Edwina~ http://edwinascreations.blogspot.com/ keep me on the bottom. thank you.

My choice for color was Orange and I received a cute file to create a Pumpkin Shaped album Very cute album but of course we are to "think outside the Box" a little . I totally lost track of time and the hop was for tomorrow and I hadn't even started, had only a vague idea what to do. So I plunged in and printed the file(at 1/4 it's original size) on plain white CS and went from there. Here is my project a sort of gate fold card.

 I traced the pieces onto some patterned CS by  Color Bok  and cut them out I then measured the size of the pumpkin and cut a piece of textured CS to double the width + a hair more and as tall as the pumpkin not including the stem.glued the inside one to the cs after scoring and folding the sided I then trimmed the base to the shape of the pumpkin.did the same with the front flaps. Inked all the edges with brown ink The inner sentiment mat was cut from the "Art Philosophy" cartridge twice once in brown and a second slightly smaller in off white. The leaf was done the same way traced and cut then backed with green CS and cut around the original put a paper twine bow on it added the sentiments and done, The sentiments are from
 Pink By Design's "Bountiful Blessings" stamp set!

I hope you enjoyed our little hop for this month. With feature attractions, The Design Team will be asked to do a project with the "theme" "Come Sit a Spell" for October 16, 2012. So, with that being said, mark your calendars and plan to "sit a spell" to see how we think outside of the chair for next month.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my little project! Love to read your comments!
Big Blog Hugs, Janet
