Paper Made Bakery September Release Blog Hop

It's a new month for Paper Made Bakery. This month does not disappoint. Check out this awesome photo of all the goodies in the kit for September!

I think what impresses me most each month is the colors. They are an inspiration all on their own. Kind of sets the mood a bit. ready for my creation?

  • I cut strips of paper in different sizes and overlapped them onto a piece of card stock, kind of washi tape-ish but with the pattered paper. 
  • Then I inked the edges to give it a uniform look (Betsy Veldman taught me that, not personally, but I read it on her blog. And if she says it, I do it)
  • Next I cut a die cut shape out of the patterned paper
  • I traced the shape with a pencil lightly onto the golden card stock base so that I could see where the image was going to be
  • I then stamped the image and sentiment in black versa fine ink and erased the pencil lines
  • Lastly, I popped up the patterned paper with pop ups, and YOU ARE DONE!

Michelle McClure is next!
