Welcome to the Scrapbook Place Fall Blog Hop-iversary

Welcome to the ScrapbookPlace Fall Blog Hop-iversary!  If you have arrived from Pammie's blog, you are right on track. If you are just happening by, you will want to start at the beginning at the ScrapbookPlace blog

Fall is here in full force – crisp, cool air, leaves on the ground, Halloween has come and gone.  What a beautiful time of year!  Well, would have been if the Superstorm didn't rip all the leaves from the trees (see posts below) and as I write this I didn't have an early Nor'easter that put at least 8" of snow down for us to shovel. Calendar wise though, it is fall....a very beautiful time in New England. 

A Hop-iversary you say… You’ve never heard of a hop-iversary.  Well let me tell you what it’s all about.  Not only are we celebrating fall BUT we are also celebrating the seven, yes SEVEN, years that ScrapbookPlace has been on the net.  In seven years, we've made lots of friends and shared lots of memories.  More importantly, we shared our passion – paper crafting!  You want to join us, click here.  

We have a wonderful sponsor for our hop, Floppy Latte Digital Designs
The images used in the creations you see in the hop today are from FLDD.  Check out the site, they have great digi images and great deals!  Run on over to Floppy’s blog and leave her some love too when the hop is over! 

For my project I used used the digi "Fall Lamppost". I was loving the first of Tom Holtz's  "12 Tags of November" and thought I could combine the two to make a fall tag. Although I used the same technique as Tim used to make the tag I had a few extra steps to take so I could use the digi stamp. 

First I had to bring the digi into my photo program and size it, I also colored it there and gave it a sort of yellow/gold background. I printed it on a piece of Georgia-Pacific Cardstock. Then I cut it to the size of my tag and used Scotch Quick Dry Glue to glue it onto the tag and trimmed any overhanging edges. I used my Copic Marker E81 to color the sign as I didn't want it snow white but rather a tad bit darker and with an old/aged look since the lamp post reminds me of the ones I saw in the past. I then covered the complete sign with clear embossing powder. From this point I did exactly what Tim Holtz did for his tag except I didn't use the stamps he used. I won't repeat it all since you can go to his site and see his tutorial complete with photos. (Tim Holtz's12 Tags of November).

Leave some love at each blog and the main blog and you will be put in a drawing for a $10 gift certificate to Floppy Latte Digital Designs!
