Many Thanks

I am so thankful for the support that continues to be shown and the kind and encouraging words I receive. Because of that, I'm able to grow the shop in ways I've been dreaming about. September has always been a month of milestones for the Feed Your Craft shop, and this year is no different. I'm so excited to announce that the first of many new products have hit the shop this morning!

The Many Thanks kit is now available, along with the ability to just purchase the new embellishments that are included in it. I'll be using the kit for documenting #mythankful30 in November, but I'm sure you'll be seeing pieces of it pop up in my projects before then.

In preparation for November's gratitude album, I assembled my mini album by simply cutting 8.5x11 card stock into quarters and using rings to assemble the hole punched pages. The size means I can easily pop a 3x4 card from the kit onto a page, get inky with the stamp set, and of course have fun adding dimensional embellishments.

For my cover, I layered several Distress Inks and then heat embossed the large pattern from the stamp set in white. I added a chipboard shape with a little gold thread underneath and now I'm all set for November's arrival. You can see my past albums here and find the prompt list I've worked with here. I'm not sure I'll use it again, though I have used it for multiple years in the past. I love seeing the differences from year to year, but for now, I'm leaving my options open.

I hope you'll head over to the shop and take a look at all of the new products and if you place an order, I'd love to see what you create! Happy shopping!

Summer Stories TN {Pt. 2}

Even though summer isn't officially over, it sure does feel like it's wound down. I'm glad to have just added the final spread to the Traveler's Notebook that I started back in June, and it was fitting to have the solar eclipse be the last entry.

I've shared a process video showing how I made those pages and then I walk you through my completed notebook. You can watch the video here, and if you'd like to see all of the photos, you can view them in my gallery. Below I've shared a few of the pages that I've made over the past several weeks. This has become one of my favorite projects to do each summer, probably because summer is my favorite. :)

If you have any questions about products or techniques, don't hesitate to ask!
