My Craft Spot Fall Release Blog Hop!!


It's time for the My Craft Spot Fall Release Party Blog Hop. If you've come by from the wonderfully sweet and talented Ally's blog, you are in the right spot! All week long, we have been sharing projects created with the FIVE NEW stamp sets and FOUR NEW sets of metal dies. They are ALL available for purchase now!! To celebrate, we are finishing things off with a blog hop - with a $10US gift certificate to the My Craft Spot Shop available to be won at EACH of the design team blogs!!


For my project, I decided to make a Thanksgiving-themed pillow box. I took a pillow box and made a few alterations, including the addition of an Elegant Edges window. Once the box was cut, I embossed it with a basketweave folder. I used a few metal dies to create my leaf spray. The maple and oak leaves are from the NEW Fall Border metal die set, the brown leaves from the Flowers - Daisy set and the swirls from the NEW Fall Wheelbarrow set.


The little ticket was cut using a Tickets metal die and the border and underline were stamped using Tickets stamps. The wonderful sentiment is from the NEW Fall Leaves stamp set.


I finished everything off with some Bittersweet jute string and a brass brad. Oh! Plus I wrapped some tiny Hershey chocolate bars and decorated them with leaves cut using the NEW Fall Border metal dies before tucking them into the box.

Here's a look at ALL the new products - each of which is available for purchase today!! (Click the heading of each NEW product to be taken right to the order page at the My Craft Spot Shop.)
