Pumpkin Cuteness

Edited to add: Bob Evans has it's annual Pumpkin Bread in stock now! Get thee there and say yum yum! Having Bob's Pumpkin Bread made me realize I had not titled this post. Funny how the mind works, yes?

This might be my favorite set of notebooks so far! At least it won the "most colorful" award! The little pumpkin stamp is from Papertrey's Vintage Picnic Baskets, one of my fav fav fav sets! Once I got that set out of the package, that baby was inked. Now my next latest fav fav fav Papertrey set is the Heart Borders and Corners. Yes, I know I'm one of the last people on the planet to own this sweet heart (get it?!) but since it is a sin to covet I thought it best to order it! I've paired it with the medium Marvey heart punch, and delicious pumpkin colored button.

When choosing paper patterns to mix on the same project, I like to be bold enough to see a definite difference in each paper which, believe it or not, makes it easier on the eye. When I "play it safe" and try to be subtle (not my best quality), then I usually end up having to add a thin solid paper strip for accent. Since this was a mass-making project, I went bold!
Back of notebooks ... I used a funky tree stamp from Michaels $1 bin (yay!) and stamped it as a background, using Groovy Guava SU ink which almost gives the effect of Versamark, only more definitive on Kraft Cardstock. I hope you enjoyed your weekend! And that your week ahead is simply the best!

I'm loving your little decorated note books. They look really fun and fast. You colouring fab too. I don't have copics and it's best if I don't go there. I need to use my coloured pencils more since I've paid a swell price for them already, LOL.
