Ready for some Papertrey fun? It's hard to believe that it's group post time again! August! Back to school month and gateway to all things fall. :-) This month Papertrey is releasing two new sets in their popular line of seasonal tags. These little gems are so fun and so versatile. If you love to give little seasonal gifts, these are a must-have. So great for cards too! This month they are releasing a Halloween set and a Fall/Thanksgiving set. Nichole challenged the design team to come up with two similarly inspired projects using the two tags sets to show just how easy and versatile they are. Change a few colors and papers and you can re-use your designs for nearly any season, just by switching out the tag that you use. Clever. :-)
First up is my Halloween project. I used the super-cute Boo! tag from the set and lots of other goodies...
The pretty, lacey kraft circle was cut with the Storybook Cricut cartridge. The vintage book print was spritzed with Glimmer Mist.
Added a little glitter to the tags with a glue pen, added some vintage book pages and some lacey felt cobwebs.
The pillow boxes were cut with the Cricut Wedding solutions cartridge...always knew they were on there, but never used the little gems. I definitely will be using them more often now! Very fun and easy!

Same basic design, just a change in the colors and a few little details...
