Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - August

It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  I hear it from everyone, where has this summer gone?  It has been an incredible summer, is has been super hot here is Southern Ontario.  Records high temperatures all of July, in fact this has been the hottest recorded summer ever.  I know that most of the U.S. had a similar summer.  It hasn't ended yet, the temperature is still in the high 80s most days, we broke 90 on Friday.  My kiddos are back to school next Tuesday and are very fortunately that their school, which is only 3 years old, is air conditioned.

However, being the end of August fall is just around the corner.  Time for cooler temperatures, beautiful changing leaves and Thanskgiving on October 8th.  This month's Blog Hop which is Autumn Textiles.  My herringbone stamps and Impression Plate haven't arrive yet so I decided to work with burlap and tried stamping on burlap for the first time.  I really love the way it turned out.  Here are the inspiration photos.






All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: Ripe Avocado
Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Friend Jar Fillers Autumn
Ink: Ripe Avocado, Ocean Tides  
Dies:  Beautiful Blooms II
other: burlap, Ocean Tides felt, Ocean Tides button, button twine, foam dots
