Mad for Plaid

 10 days!?! Seriously, how do 10 days go by without me being here!!? I've thought of you, trust me! Missed you even! But time has just been flying by like crazy! I've been working, creating, working around the house, kicking my to do list's butt, but I just let time slip away from me here. I'm here now, and that's what counts, right!?! Even better, here with some great projects to share! So, if you follow me on Instagram @danaleighlewis you know that I am MAD FOR PLAID!!! Plaid scarves, plaid dresses, plaid, plaid, plaid, gimme all the plaid!!!! :) So of course, I had to carry this over into my crafting world, and create with plaid. Lucky for me there is an AMAZING plaid print in the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper. Only one problem right? Halloween is O-V-E-R!! So I thought, how can I work this into Fall or Thanksgiving!? Gold Foil to the rescue! So I paired the two together, and perfect!

The DSP is Basic Black & Tangelo Twist, but I put the base on Cajun Craze. It worked great! I decided to add a little more gold, and used the Winter Wonderland Vellum for a little more Fall-y look. I used the gold pine cone print over Very Vanilla, and that worked great for the look I was going for! 

I topped everything off with acorns from Acorny Thank You, and a sentiment from For All Things. I added a bit of embellishment with Linen Thread, and love how that tied it all together! What do you think? Are you going to go dig out your Halloween & Christmas paper to create Fall cards!? :) I hope this inspires you to think out of the box!
There's some big news happening around here too! Stampin' Up! has, for the first time ever,  announce a retiring list for the Holiday Catalog. So we are getting a heads up on what current Holiday products will be offered in the future. This also means, we know what will be long gone in no time! So, if your must haves are headed for retirement, better catch 'em before they're gone!! Shop the retiring products here. Thank you so much for stopping by. Can't wait to share more fun with you!
