Parade of Papers Blog Hop!



Welcome to Stop #23 in the Stampin' Addicts Parade of Papers Blog Hop! I am showcasing my absolute favorite paper of this catalog- Juntos!

Haven't seen it? Well that's because it's been hiding in Celebrando Creatividad- The Spanish Catalog! I saw it in the catalog at convention last summer and it was on my first order! I love the fall colors and the simple elegance of the paper. It features Ruby Red, Really Rust, More Mustard and Always Artichoke.. it's autumn-licious! Yes, I know that's not a word.. but hey, it's my blog! I can make up words if I want right?? :)

My first two projects are very simple cards. The both feature the stamp sets Thoughts & Prayers and Full of Life. I also used the Photo Corner Punch and the Key Tag Punch. The Many Marvellous Markers were used to color the tree and branches with several colors:




I also created a 8 1/2 by 8 1/2 scrapbook page featuring my pretty girl, Nina, taking a rest in the leaves. We had played pretty hard, but I think a squirrel caught her eye! On this page I used the Sissix letters- Serif Essentials and also the Leaves #2 dies. My favorite parts of this page are the three strips of "scraps" (other than my Nina girl) running under the picture. I was going to toss them, but thought they were too pretty to throw away.. glad I didn't!



And my final project with Juntos is my Daily Planner. I worked on this for quite awhile, but it is now a finished product! It features the same stamp sets as the cards and also the Scallop Oval Sissix Die and the Serif Essential letters.



I made individual tabs with the Round Tab Punch for all my different categories. I also used the Calendar Stamp and It's a Plan stamp set to finish all the pages in my planner. I use this planner every day... although somehow.. I am still not organized.. well, at least I have somewhere to write my disorganized thoughts!



Hope you enjoyed the Juntos stop on the tour at Paper and Paws!
