So here is my first project sample this month's kit - "Hello Fall".  It uses some of the FUN components of the kit - the wood acorn and the gold button. 

 Here it is with the envelope - if you know me -  you know I'm all about a cute stamped envelope.  I love getting "stamped" mail.
 Here's another quick view from the top so you can see how the linen thread is threaded through the button, and the little acorn tied on.  You can also see here how the leaves were curled up a bit with a bone folder before attaching the top to the card with a glue dot.

Also used Cajun and Artichoke Inks and two SU punches that you can see in the supplies below.  Just think of the amazing creations you can come up with.  Remember to sign up and pay by the 15th so you can get your own kit to play with the end of the month.  There will be two more blog hops coming up on the 7th and the 14th to give you great ideas.  Plus subscribers will get 6 additional, EXCLUSIVE project ideas sent to them by PDF when their kit ships.  Let me know if you have any questions by dropping me an email at  Now continue on to the two other blogs for additional ideas -
