Ready for Fall

The crisp air is here. The cold and dreary, rainy days have made an appearance. And I swear, one of the bean fields near my house literally turned a golden yellow in a day! Lots of signs that fall is on the way are making their appearance here in the Midwest. Guess that means it's time to get out the pumpkins and start decorating!

All this fresh weather made me think I should grab some of my new Scrapbooking Studio Design Team supplies to make a seasonal banner. Wouldn't it be cute draped in front of some pumpkins?

Supplies from The Scrapbooking Studio: We R Memory Keepers papers; Tim Holtz Rosettes Dies, Martha Stewart Die Cuts, Colorbox White ink, Sharpie white pen. Maya Road Mist and Chipboard letters

I've been rocking out the rosettes lately. I love the texture and dimension that they add to a project. Plus, the Tim Holtz dies make these waaaaay easier to make now!

And did you know you can get two different styles of rosettes out of one die? It all depends on how you turn the rosettes when you flatten them out. Turned one direction you get a scalloped edge (as shown above). Turned the other way you get a straight pinking sheer style edge. One of the other great things about these dies... you can use them in the Sizzix Sidekick (in case you don't want to invest in a Big Shot).

Drop by The Scrapbooking Studio Blog for some more inspiring projects from The Scrapbooking Studio Design Team. Or, better yet, stop by the store and see the projects in person :)
