Fall Sampler


Continuing on with the sampler mania my customers and I have been experiencing, here's the next one in our series - a fall sampler!  There were so many gorgeous samplers produced this past weekend at my house - and I tried to bribe a couple of people into selling their samplers to me because I liked theirs better than mine, but it was to no avail!  This time around, I didn't want all of the usual "bling" that we typically put on our samplers out of respect for Thanksgiving - just wanted it to be simple, but elegant!  Hope you like it!

Paper:  Very Vanilla - 8 X 8; scored at 2-7/8", 3", 3-1/8"; 5-3/4", 5-7/8", and 6"; Cajun Craze - 4-7/8 X 4-7/8; Gold Foil - 4-3/4 X 4-3/4; Very Vanilla - 4-1/2 X 4-1/2; Crumb Cake strips and Very Vanilla strips for the squares.  Each square was embossed at 5/8", 3/4", and 7/8"
Stamps:  French Foliage; Truly Grateful; Harvest Blessings; Autumn Leaf Prints; With Gratitude; Lexicon of Leaves; Summer Silhouettes; Lovely as a Tree; Gently Falling; Seasonal Sayings
Inks:  More Mustard; Cherry Cobbler; Old Olive; Always Artichoke; Elegant Eggplant; Pumpkin Pie; Tangerine Tango; Early Espresso; Crumb Cake; Soft Suede Marker; Early Espresso Marker; Pear Pizzazz; Versamark
Miscellaneous:  Simply Scored Scoring Tool; Stampin' Dimensionals; Gold Embossing Powder; Heat Tool; Stampin' Sponges; Paper Piercer with Mat; Gold Brads; 1/2" Circle Punch; Paper Snips; Crystal Effects; 1-1/4" Square Punch; 1-3/8" Square Punch; Stamp-a-ma-jig
Special Instructions:  Each square was gilded with gold embossing powder around the edges.  When mounting the middle pieces of the sampler onto the 8 X 8 Vanilla piece, if you lined up the embossed lines on the squares with the first row of embossed lines on the 8 X 8 piece, the top lines would match up, too!  Really cool!
