The Cutting Cafe Blog Hop...Pumpkin Trio

This post is bitter sweet.  This will be my last post for The Cutting Cafe' for a while. (sniff sniff)  I have done two terms and it's my turn to sit out for a while.  I can't begin to tell you how much being a part of the design team and helped improved many aspects of my life.  Not to mention making new friends that will hopefully last a life time.

This is also my first BLOG HOP.  I hope that I'm doing it right!  After reading my post, hop on over to Melisa Waldorf's blog, Paperlicious Designs to see the next project.  Leave a comment here on my blog for a chance to win the set that I used.

For my last project (and Blog Hop), I used the Pumpkin Trio.  I love fall and I can't wait for it to get here.  I love the colors, the pumpkins, the smells and the cooler weather.  I decided to only use one of the pumpkins from the set. 


I love using craft cardstock.  The polka dots were designed in the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition.  I designed  it with two layers so that you can change the color polka dots if you want to.  You can get it here.
  Just click on each layer to change colors.  I haven't tested it, so I hope it works

You can see the layers here.  Regina already has made the file where you can print the
 extra layers.  She has made it so easy for us.  I love this lady.  I'm so going to miss being a part of the team.  Let me grab some tissues...(still sniffing!) 


PUMPKIN TRIO
Here is the sentiments that come with this set.

This card was made by Regina Easter, owner of The Cutting Cafe'.  Isn't it waaaay cute?

  23. I have never really used this type of file before. I love the card. Bad thing about fall though is it ends and leads to winter.

    1. Thanks Denise. You don't have to have a cutting machine to cut them out. Regina, makes it so easy to use her files. You can print it and use a pair of scissors. Another thing you can do is print it on scrapbook paper or cardstock. I know how you feel about winter....UGH! It's not so bad if we don't have a lot of snow.

  29. Love this, the kraft is perfect for Autumn, and the polka dots are great, but the thing I like most is the circle sentiment. That was a great way to use it.

    1. Thanks Sue! At first I thought I had made it smaller. Then I realized that it was too big to hang it off of the stem as a tag, so I just stuck it there until I could think of what I was going to do with it...I ended up liking it there, so I just left it.

  36. LOVE your pumpkin card!!! The orange and kraft are wonderful together. Quick question ... I'm wondering how you are able to reply individually to each comment and if that comment is emailed to them. I have blogger ... but I dont' see a way to do that. Hope you are having a fun Labor Day weekend!

  37. Okay...I think it's Design/settings/post and comments. Under the comments, the only thing I changed is under the comment part, pick embedded. I THINK that might be it...let me know if it worked. Still learning. :)
