September POM Class

So often, I'm blog browsing and I see something just so inspiring. I always think to myself...I've got to try that. Then, life continues on and I never get around to it. Well, I'm forcing myself to take the opportunity by offering a Project of the Month Class (POM). This is a chance for me to try out some of the great projects I see others doing. Well, just a few days ago, I was looking at my new friend, Katie's blog. Katie is a wonderful papercrafter who lives in my town. Just recently we met up. It was fun to meet a fellow blogger, and one who's local at that. We hope to stamp together sometime soon. If you haven't browsed through her blog, off you go now to Katie's Paper Haven. Such cute things! Anyway, I saw an adorable set of owl notecards with a little faux tote. I was inspired to use that idea as my first Project of the Month. Here's a quick peek at the sampling of my cards, which use the new and yummy Hawaii Papaya paper and the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set. I created a set of eight 4x4 cards and custom matching envelopes using this tutorial by Cindy Lawrence. I will post close-ups of all the cards and envelopes this weekend along with the recipe.

Love these! I was just playing with my new Haiku and Hawaii Papaya papers yesterday. Love the colors in them...finally warming up to those new IC's. :) I think it helps to have some good DP to pair with them.
