Jumpin' Leaves!

The few leaves that remained on the trees in East Central Wisconsin were violently blown away by the excessive winds over the past few days. So, I figure we can recreate a few leaves of our own!

The outside of the card. . . pretty typical:

The inside of the card contains the "jumping leaves". Love it!

Here's the how-to video:

OK, your turn! Make one. Go jump in the leaves.

Settling into the Comfort Zone!

The Clubhouse was abuzz today with the release of our new Comfort Zone collection. I'm just lovin' how this all turned out. I've been busy uploading artwork to the galleria at Club Scrap, finishing up on instructions, and creating digi pages with this set of papers.

One of my favorite cards from the G2G set is this simple modification of the Tan cutapart

I cut out the pre-printed leaves with a craft knife, bent them down the center vein, and reattached them right to the card/panel with foam adhesive. No stamping required!

You can download the free instructions for all fifteen Greetings to Go cards right here.

I also played with the digital kit, using my favorite "Quick Drop Digital Layouts". I did a quickie video tutorial so that folks who don't know anything about digi can see how quick 'n easy it can be to learn. Here's the vid:

And, here's another video on making some fun leaves with the UM stamps in this collection:

Well, all this today, I'm settling into my Comfort Zone for October! I hope you all love it as much as we do!
