French Foliage Folio

 Glad you could join us for some fun fall crafting with the Stampin' Pretty Pals! You've probably hopped over from Nicole Picadura at Scraps & Stamps . I'm stop number 7 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up! fall projects! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

I created this a few weeks ago, but decided to wait to share it when I heard that the September 
Blog Hop was showcasing Fall Flair.  I had bought these small legal pads in hopes of using them for another project, and was a little dismayed when it didn't work out.  So, I pulled out my Grid Paper and Simply Scored tool,  and set out to find another use for them.  Hence, my French Foliage Folio...


I thought that the perfect compliment to this beautiful set of leaves, was the 
bird and saying from the Language of Friendship stamp set...


Then, to put the perfect finishing touch on it, I used coordinating card stock 
and ribbon on the inside to cover up the binded edge of the paper pad...


Project Ingredients-
Paper- Night of Navy, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, and Very Vanilla card stock
Ink Pads- Night of Navy, Cajun Craze, and More Mustard
Stamp Sets- French Foliage and Language of Friendship
Punches- 2 x 1 3/8" Oval (XL), Bird Builder, and Decorative Label
Additional Tools & Accessories- 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon (More Mustard), Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Snail Adhesive, Sticky Strip, and Stamping Sponges

Now hop along for more inspiring ideas from Mary Fish at Stampin' Pretty, stop number 8 on the Pals Fall Flair Blog Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!
