Paper Garden Projects Festive Fall Garden Walk

Welcome to the Festive Fall Garden Walk at Paper Garden Projects.  If you just happen to be stopping by, visit the Paper Garden Projects Blog to start the blog hop. 

Take a stroll through the blogs of all the Paper Gardeners and enjoy some friendly inspiration. This month we are focusing on Fall and Back-to-School projects.  While you visit, take note of each designer's name and their special garden walk word in their blog post. Once you finish your garden tour, send an E-mail to with the list of designers and their garden walk word.  Everyone who sends the correct list of designers and words will be entered in a random drawing to win a prize. You need to send an e-mail to the address above; please don't leave your list as a comment. You have until midnight (EST) on August 25th to send your list.

And the prize? We may be celebrating Fall, but summer is not quite over yet. So how about not one but 2 cute summer Kraftin Kimmie unmounted stamps!

Now for my Back To School project I used the adorable Teacher Anya Stamp available at Paper Garden Projects.  I just can't tell you how cute and fun this stamp is to color, love it!  Like playing with paper dolls! 

I decided to take a mini album and turn it into a little teacher's notebook:

I used a mini blackboard album to fit the teacher theme.  I wanted the front of my album to be like a present that had to be opened.  So I sprayed a clothes pin with glimmer mist, added some twine, and used a key as my gift wrap. 

Miss Anya is just too cute!  Of course I had to dress her in pink and look at that adorable APPLE.I wanted the inside of my album to have lists and look "teachery". 

Here is a list of the blog hop order:

Amber (that's me!!!)

And my special Festive Fall word is....can you guess....APPLES.

Visit Paper Garden Projects to see all their adorable stamps, like Anya!  And check out the sales and specials going on now. 

Next up on the hop is the talented Tangii's Blog.  Enjoy!!!
