Front Porch Fun Day with Rhonda Merry

It's Front Porch Fun Day here on the LBH Blog! Today, one of our Front Porch Kit design team members, Rhonda Merry is sharing a super cute Thankful Book she created with our "It's Fall Y'all" Kit! 

Hello, Rhonda Merry here with some Front Porch Kit Fun. 

One of my favorite things to create are mini albums or tag books adorned with fun embellishments.  I admit I have a lot of great packaged items to break into but there is something extra special about making your own. For me it’s not only getting creative but using up the scraps from a project rather than throwing pieces away. Also, using the many stamps, dies and punches I have picked up over the years. 





This little book is titled “We Give Thanks”.  Each page has a little journal area where each of my family members will be able to write in what they are thankful for this year. All of the embellishing was made up from the various scraps and embellies that came inside the It’s Fall Ya’ll” Front Porch Kit. 

Here’s a look at each page. 





The little pumpkin is made from punching out 3 ovals from the orange patterned paper.  I layered it onto a 1’ chipboard circle to easily adhere the parts.  Punched a little leaf sprig and free handed a cork stem. I inked the edges if each oval and the leave with coordinating inks.  Once all of the pieces in place to form your pumpkin and the glue is dried, adhere to your page, card or tag.
  
                I used various dies to cut fall images from the cork sheet included in the FPK. 






So if you would like to get embellishing, go through your stash, find those general shapes (circles squares, ovals, or labels) gather the stamps with foliage, Thanks Yous and journal lines plus some specialty shapes like stars, hearts, fall themed, etc. and start punching and stamping away with your Front Porch Kit.

Enjoy!

Rhonda Merry

I hope you enjoyed Rhonda's tutorial today!
Tune in every week for another Front Porch Fun Day!!
