the creation station blog hop - harvest time

We are so glad you are joining us today for another round with The Creation Station Blog Hop! If you have already been following the hop, you probably came here from Sara's blog.

For today's hop we were able to choose from the following (any or all):
1. Stamp Set: For All Things
2. Theme: Harvest party
3. Accessory: Petite Cafe Gift Bags

I am so ecstatic about the Petite Cafe Gift Bags found in the Holiday Catalog...10 bags for $5.95. They are 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 8" and these bags are poly-lined on the inside, which means they are food safe! Can you imagine all the yummy treats you can put inside them?

When I put together this little ensemble, I was actually thinking of staff at my children's school. These would make great little gifts for around Thanksgiving time to let them know how grateful we are for them!! As you can see, I didn't decorate the bag except for a bow using Blackberry Bliss ribbon finished off with an Autumn Wooden Element. I liked the color of the gift bag and wanted the attached card to stand out on its own.

I attached the Autumn Wooden Element with some Linen Thread. The 3x3 card is attached with a mini clothespin.

The card attached to the gift bag is a 3x3 card that opens, so you still have plenty of space to write a little message on the inside. I love those little 3x3 cards! You can make so many of them in a flash!

I went a little out of my comfort zone on this next one. This notecard also features the For All Things stamp set, but I ended up going with some non-traditional Fall colors and did a lot of free stamping to see where it would take me. I grabbed the THANK YOU stamp from the set called Another Thank You. I liked the big pop of the sentiment. I plan to use this thank you card for my September customer orders. The color scheme came from this week's Color Throwdown.

 I even decided to stamp the envelope this time!
