Blog Hop with Gossamer Blue

So, an idea was presented at Gossamer Blue last month, where the entire design team would do a mid-month blog-hop sharing something that we made from this month's October kits. Since most of you know me and my love of tiny paperish things (and photos), I planned my post around a small collection of handmade Fall gift tags! Plus, this blog-hop idea also gave me an excuse play around out in the desert with some fun props.  Kind of the best of both worlds for me!

~ Fall is in the air! ~ 

I used remnants of the Main Kit as well as some things from my own collection; rhinestones, tags, fabric. I think the process of collecting little things to add to the tags is maybe the best part! 

I've made about 10 of these stuffed pumpkins, they are so much fun to make! I knew last year that I really wanted to make a few of them and so I saved all of the stems off of our pumpkins. Just leave them out to air-dry and then store them in a safe place for making some of your own pumpkins! 

Thank you for popping into here today! To check out what everyone else is up to, follow these links!

Tara, you never cease to amaze me! Each and every one of these tags is just as stunning as the one before. I love how you added just the right touch of bits and pieces to make each one. Plus, your photos are so beautiful! Great touch with the suitcases, pumpkins, and typewriter. I love it all!
