Papertrey Septenber 2012 Blog Hop

 This month’s Papertrey Blog Hop focuses on fabric and felt. Ugh! was my initial thought. Not that I don’t have some fabric and felt to play with but the reason I have it is that I always struggle to use it so it tends to sit around.  But a change of attitude and inspiration from all of the gorgeous blog posts already posted made me go for it.  Of course I didn’t start until this morning west coast time.

 I started with my new pillow box die that just came yesterday.  I used my woodgrain impression plate to give it some texture.  I then tied fabric around the middle and used the fabric to accent my tiny tag.  Well that’s it…enjoy the blog hop linked above!  Details are at the bottom.


Hope you are having a blissful day! Thanks for stopping by….
