Neat & Tangled Day 3 – Maple Leaves

Hello & welcome back for Neat & Tangled release week. We are already on day 3 and today we are featuring a gorgeous stamp & die – Maple Leaves. This journaling card stamp is perfect for scrapbooking, cards, mini albums, Project Life and so much more. I adore these 3×4 stamps – great for a quick focal point on a standard size card.

Iย took out my handy Distress Markers for this one -the easiest and quickest way to watercolor! I chose some pinks, oranges and yellows and colored away. You really can’t go wrong here with such a gorgeous image. I took a strip of watercolor paper and added a splatter for the edge to tie all the colors together. I popped the journaling card up on foam adhesive over a strip of burlap and added a button to finish it all off. I was feeling very autumnal when I made this!!

That is all for me today and this is also my last Neat & Tangled Release week for a couple months. We are due for baby #2 in the next few weeks so I will be taking some time off as we adjust to life as a family of 4!

Neat & Tangled Release Week – Day 2

Hi there! Welcome back for more Neat & Tangled release week fun! Today’s sets are amazing!!! Bible Journaling & Bible Journaling Companions. The lettering in these sets is seriously swoon-worthy. I personally don’t do any Bible journaling, but the uses for these big words is endless. I fancied up some cheap Ikea notebooks for my projects today.

JOURNAL2

I stamped a row of inspirational words along the right side of the journal and then balanced it out with the heart from Heart of Gold on the left. I colored in some random triangle with a black gel pen, white gel pen and a gold sharpie marker. I anchored the bottom with some gold washi, white striped washi & black twine.

Next up, a simplifiedย version of the journal above. I wanted to focus on the words and the message on this cover. I incorporated the script-style font from Bible Journal Companions and let the lovely words shine. I anchored the journal with a strip of washi.

Neat & Tangled Release – Day 1

Hello! Can’t believe it is time again for another Neat & Tangled release. This release is packed full of gorgeous sets for the autumn that you are going to love. I adore today’s set – Pumpkin Everything – which is also this month’sย You’re So Neat incentive stamp.ย I love this time of year – pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cakes, pumpkin carving – it’s the best. It is really starting to feel like autumn here in Zurich too, so this felt very appropriate!

I created the card background with 4 sheets of patterned paper from an old Amy Tangerine paper pad I had lying around – I love these colors for fall. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of rustic white cardstock, fussy cut the image and inked the edges before popping it up with foam adhesive. Really simple, but lots of fun!

Make sure to check out all the amazing DT creations today over on the Neat & Tangled blog and don’t forget to comment for your chance to win a stamp set!

Have a great Monday!
