Before the leaves change color and fall... let's get hopping!! If you've hopped over from Janet's Blog , then you are in the right place!! If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our All-About-Fall FUN, then please  to start at the beginning with Lynda's blog because... Starting at the start is always SMART!! :) We have a WONDERFUL Grand Prize for one lucky hopper today -- A $25 Gift Certificate for Designs On Cloud 9!!

Designs on Cloud 9

For the hop today, I've created two cards that are completely circutless.  I totally went old school, back to stamps and cutting designs out of patterned paper.

The first card is Falling Leaves.  I love this time of year because of the rich colors.  I love to go out and take picture of the leaves changing color.  In Alaska, we don't have all the colors you see in the States, but it's beautiful.

This card I cut the leaves out of some paper I had laying around my craft area.  The stamp is from Close to My Heart.  One thing I love about this card is that it was totally made from things I already had so nothing had to be bought.

My next card is one I made for my granddaughter. I call it "Nuts about you"

It is so cute, I used a sticker I had on hand along with stickles. I got this paper from Joann's and found a great glittered button.


This is a 862 Piece K&Company "All Season" Scrap Kit.  All you have to do is leave me a comment with contact information, you don't have to become a follower, but it would be nice if you would.  I hope you enjoy and I will utilize Random.Org to select the winner on Sunday, September 19th.
Thank you again for checking out my project... Now hop on over to Pam  and remember to visit all the stops for more chances to WIN!!
