Fabulous Fall

Today I am sharing my Gecko Galz projects for September. First up is a tag, which was sprayed with Tattered Angels ink sprays. The ear of corn image is from the "Harvest Time" collage sheet by Gecko Galz. The turkey is from the "Thankful for Fall" Jewel It sheet. The brown leaves are die cut from Gecko Galz paper. The rest of the items are from my stash.

Next up is a Thanksgiving card, using Gecko Galz papers from the Autumn Colors pack and the Gypsy Market papers. I cut the paper into 1.5" squares and attached them to a card base. The image is from the "Thanksgiving Memories" collage sheet. Final touches were a flower with a button center and the word Thankful which was cut from the "Thankful for Fall" Jewel It sheet.

My final project is a pumpkin card. The pumpkin was die cut with the "Montegue" paper (from the Star Crossed paper pack). The background paper is from the "Autumn Harvest" paper pack and the large leaf is the "Thanksgiving" paper (from the Mayflower paper pack) The small leaves were punched out of paper scraps from my stash. The word sticker is also from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today! Check out all the fabulous fall collage sheets and paper packs at Gecko Galz.

Eiffel Tower

The Paris theme is on at Tag Tuesday for another week. Once again, I used the Eiffel Tower on my tag. I cut a large tag from free paper received in a Stampington publication, which had the image on it. I also added a large die cut heart, bit of lace and a blue rose. The word love was die cut in blue.

Thanks for stopping by!

Back to School

I made another tag for Tag Tuesday's new theme.... Back to School. This tag was covered with Prima paper and then a die cut of the alphabet was layered on top. The image has been in my stash forever. I added a star and pen nib, as handwriting is his favorite school subject!

Thanks for stopping by. Please visit the Tag Tuesday blog to see lots of wonderful school themed tags.

By the Shore

The Gecko Galz customer challenge this month is "By the Shore". I made two cards for this theme and I'd like to share them with you.

The first card uses an image from Sea Side Icons. The image was sized, fussy cut and layered over a background oval, which I die cut out of "Beach Front" paper (By the Shore paper pack). I cut a second image of the girl and pop dotted her over the girl in the shell. I added a small doily behind her head first. The word "love" is punched from a Teresa Collins punch. I also added two small blue flowers above the word love. The card base is white.

The second card uses an image from the "Cuties by the Shore" collage sheet. The background paper is "In Marble Halls" which was embossed with a bubbles embossing folder. I added the Hello word sticker and some die cut seashells to the card. The card base is blue.

Next I have two cards made with images from the "Paper Lanterns" collage sheets. Background papers are from the Gypsy Market paper pack. Both card bases are white.

Use Your Scraps

I made another tag for Tag Tuesday's theme of Use Your Scraps. I have so many scraps that I keep them in a ten drawer cart. The drawers are organized by color - pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black and gray. The drawers are pretty full because I love to keep even the tiniest bits of paper!

For this tag, I made a grid style with the paper scraps. I added items from my stash and used colored pencils on the flowers and to outline the bird.
