October Studio AE From Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to October's Studio AE from Technique Tuesday blog hop!

Today we're featuring projects made with this month's kit, Give Thanks by Ali Edwards.

I love the mix of fonts with Ali's cursive and printing with all of these fall themed words and sentiments!

Here is my layout:




I just got some Distress Stains and was trying them out on these tags. When I decided to use them on the layout I just turned the photo into a tag also. Along with the October stamps I used stamps from Autumn Afternoons (the leaf and acorn cluster) and Who What Where (journaling block).






Be sure to check the blogs of all taking part in the hop today:







Heidi Van Laar (October's special guest!)
























We're doing a random draw from comments left on all of the blogs to win 2 stamp sets.




One person will win Who What Where

And someone will win You Always Know

Comments must be made by midnight PST on October 12th. The winners will be announced on the 13th on the Technique Tuesday blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
