Prickley Pear Monday

Hi all! Happy new Week! I’m here to share my Prickley Pear project of the week. I made a layout for a change. I love using my stamps on layouts and many of the clear stamp sets and dies are perfect design elements for scrapbook pages. Like the Oak and Maple Leafs Clear Stamps Set and Oak and Maple Leaf Die,

The photos are from one of our Sunday walks this fall. I love fall when the air is chilly and the sky is high with a sun shining from a blue sky on all the yellow leafs. This was one of those perfect fall days.

I heat embossed the leafs and cut them out with the die and then I went over them with some distress inks: Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge.

And I finished it all off with some beautiful Leaf Flourish  in the corners.

All the products used apart from the stamps are from the Cocoa Daisy October kit. It’s yummy! :) And I based the design on this week’s lovely sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:

The Prickley Pear blog is jammed with inspiration from the Design Team. And we will be back tomorrow with a new sketch challenge. Stay Tuned! :) :) :)


P.s. When ones team wins one of the competitions in the First Lego League one gets this happy!


Go Gold Caps!!! ♥♥♥
