Autumn Leaves: Manhattan

This month one of my DT Spotlight sponsors at A Million Memories was Autumn Leaves. They sent the new Manhattan line. I really liked working with this line and the colors in it. I had just come home from Winter in Indiana and the colors really reminded me of the National Lakeshore and the Dunes.


OMG is she getting huge or what?


Then i was totally inspired by the stamps I bought from AMM a few weeks ago from Autumn Leaves by Rhonna Farrer. I was planning on holding onto them for another project, but when I looked around my scrap table and saw all these little bits I couldn't help but make this little set.


I love these stamps so much and it's so easy to make really simple but amazing looking tags from them...


Cards that can go with a gift or even a homemade flower arrangement...


Or even really cute labels!


These labels were so easy to make. I had a few left over square scraps from the Manhattan line and just scanned them into my computer. Using photoshop I cropped the patterned paper into the exact size of the labels. I used Avery 8163 which are 2x4". I saved them as jpegs and inserted the patterned paper graphics into the label Word document just like they were any other graphic. I printed out the sheet and then stamped the image by Rhonna Farrer on each one with Staz-On! Done!

You can see all the amazing work the DT did with this line here!

Now it's time for me to get to work with AMM's Feb Kit! It's really such a cool kit this month with a TON of goodies packed inside. The colors are really cool and once again all the papers are double-sided so there are so many possibilities! Whew!


Think.... A2Z, Autumn Leaves, Scenic Route, American Crafts, Fancy Pants, Maya Road, Basic Grey, Prima... YUMMY!

Michelle is going to have the whole kit up on the site very soon as well as the cardstock add-ons, so don't miss it!
