Frolicking Squirrels with Franci

Franci joins us today with some adorable Fall inspiration featuring Let’s Go Nuts! Our Halloween/Fall Inspiration challenge will continue through Sunday, October 18th at 11:59PM ET.

Franci was inspired by the Fall leaves to create this falling leaf design! The squirrels are busy raking leaves and gathering acorns! Franci used just one of the trees from Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop for her lovely design!

Franci added some sweet homespun details to her card design! She stamped the background with Gingham Backdrops in Kiddie Pool ink and used Stitched Borders to give the focal panel a cute dotted design!

Thanks for sharing this delightful inspiration today, Franci!


We hope you will join us for the Halloween/Fall Inspiration challenge!

Franci’s Thanks a Bushel Card!

Franci joins us today to share sweet inspiration for our Back to School Challenge!

Card Instructions from Franci: I created my card out of white cardstock and I stamped the Gingham Backdrops on the front with the Kiddie Pool ink. Then I cut a panel of white cardstock and die cut the Stitched Border at the top before I stamped my sentiment on it. I also added a panel of kraft cardstock a little bit bigger in size at the back and I attached them to my card base with some foam adhesive. I stamped, colored and die cut the images from Thanks a Bushel and Jump for Joy and glued them down as well.

Thanks so much for sharing this brilliant card with us today, Franci!

The Back to School challenge will be open until Sunday, September 20 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your Back to School cards and projects!


Happy Crafting! Have a wonderful day, friends!
