My first Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  WooHoo!  I tried to play last month, but we decided to go out of town and I would not have been able to hop so I did not post.  I am so thrilled to hop along this month!   For this month's office theme, I chose paper clips(corners), rubber bands(tiny cuttings to tie around paper clips), and cork.  I also thought the eyelet lace edge diecut could look like hole reinforcers, so I made a border out of cork and used one to top off my button.   Cork is fun to play with.   The holes cut from the eyelet lace border look like regular sized hole punches so I used those behind the little silver pearls on the center rectangle corners. 

I am using All Booked Up, Masculine Motifs (leafy background and sentiment), and Distressed Stripes(plaid background).  I also used the tiniest leaf from the Turning a New Leaf set to stamp in between the melon berry leaves with a softer versamark leaf.   As for tools, I used the Linen and Canvas Impressions plate, Mat Stack 3, and Eyelet Lace border die cuts!  I used my favorite color combo and added the new harvest gold!

*************
I also wanted to share with you the card I made for last month's hop.   Last month's theme was favorite PTI color combo!  My favorite combo is scarlet jewel, melon berry and kraft. 
This card is very CAS for me!   It uses my "go to" set Turning a New Leaf.  And, I used my favorite Linen and Canvas impressions plate.  I do love the simplicity of this card, though!  The little edge at the top left is the edge of one of the Beautiful Blooms II flowers sticking out.  I think the one is cute; however, a whole row would make a fabulous border, too!


Thanks so much for hopping by!
