Fall or School Project Blog Hop Sept 10th

Sylvia from Bella Scrapbook Designs is hosting a blog hop today featuring either Fall or School projects. I decided to do a Family Fall Card that I hope you will enjoy - so if you came from Sherri's Scraps then you are hopping in the right direction but if you just came by to see what I am up to I would encourage you to go back to the beginning of the hop and start at Bella Scrapbook Designs. I am sure you will be inspired by all of the projects, find some amazing tutorials and maybe a little blog candy along the way. My card is made using a 5x7 card base and Pink Paislee Amber Road Harvest Hayride paper and rub ons.

The tree, border and sentiments are all from the same rub on sheet. I know some "Love" rub ons and some don't; BUT here is a tidbit on using them. Whether you use a rub on tool or a popsicle stick the main thing is to take your time lifting them up. So first, start rubbing and as you rub start lifting the paper up slowly and continue to rub, if you notice that the rub on isn't staying behind just lay back down and continue to rub, they should lay down. Most people just rub and "when" they think it is good enough the lift the whole paper up and guess what a lot of times the rub on is still attached, so just be patient and go slow. I am sure you will come to love rub ons also. I hope you enjoyed my little tidbit and if you have something else to add about rub ons I am sure my readers would love to hear. Please continue on the hop by visiting Simple Crafty Creations with Sandy.

***Make sure to bookmark my blog in your favorites because I have been very busy making Fall, Halloween and Christmas projects. I am hoping to have a morsel everyday to share with you. I would also invite you to follow my blog I would love to have here.

  15. Very pretty card. I have to laugh. When my husband saw my project for tomorrow of the blog hop I am participating in this weekend, he asked if it is a rub on. Come tomorrow and see what I did.
