Time for the Books!

At Magnolia-licious Highlites, Diana has given the challenge of something related to Autumn Splendor.  I used a couple of of the new gals from the Turning Leaves collection and figured they were perfect for a school theme.  So hard to decide which ones to use since there are so many adorable images!!!  Guess I always loved fall, not just because of the colors, but also because I loved going to school!

Here are the links:252 EDITOR TILDA
540 SWEDISH CHAIR
55 ROUND TALK/THOUGHT BUBBLE DOOHICKEY DIE
Of course, I like the look of 3D, so cut out Tilda and the chair and popped them up along with some books and the apple.  Images are colored with Distress Inks.

First time I used the talk bubble and I think that is going to be great to have on hand.  What a fun thing to add to a card.  Also used a Hero Arts verse and an EK Success corner punch.

While I had the matching things out, I made another card using:

329 AUTUMN TILDA WITH PENCILS
55 ROUND TALK/THOUGHT BUBBLE DOOHICKEY DIE
Now the background paper with the books on it is from an old package of 8 1/2 x 11 computer paper.  Never did use it to print on from the computer, but it has been a fun paper to use on some cards and for scrapbooking. This is what it looked like before I cut it apart.
Click on the names of the images or dies above or you can find the whole new collection HERE for the regular size Magnolia stamps.  And HERE for the mini stamps for this collection.

Diana at Magnolia-licious has the best selection of Magnolia stamps, both regular and mini and has come up with some awesome discounts for us!  She has made up some combos with the new minis at fantastic prices!!!  She also offers a store credit for your purchases too!  Right now there is a giveaway price for the mini sentiments at only $2.99 each!!!  All this and in addition great customer service and really nice people!!!!

Hope you will join us at Magnolia-licious Highlites for the challenge of a project Fall/Autumn themed using at least one Magnolia image.  Diana has yet another generous prize for those entering!!!

A note of thanks to all those that have left comments and stop by regularly.  It means so much and I appreciate it!!!

Enjoy every day!

hi Patti Jo!
What a great idea using that paper. Tilda fits perfectly with it. I love your coloring with the distress inks. Her hair is a good color.
The other Tilda with the pencils is gorgeous too. Love them both.

Hi Patti Jo and far too long with no visit from me, so I'm enjoying ogling some of the gorgeous cards of yours I've missed. I really love this one and the book background paper sets the scene perfectly. Beautiful colouring and I agree about the talk bubbles too.

Hope you're well and having a good summer. Hugs, Chris :)
