Trendy Tuesday – On the Farm

Summer is soon to come to a close and fall harvest ideas are showing up in the paper craft blogosphere.  I”m not yet ready to let go of summer just yet, but I can slowly start the transition with these popular farm themes.   To start, check out these cute & fun project & images from stamp sets from LawnFawn, Hambo Stamps, and Paper Smooches.

  1. As some one who goes to our local Farm each week to pick up a wonderfully grown, and delicious, CSA share, I really appreciate your Farm Theme. I had no idea that there are so many Stamps, Paper, and Embellishments out there with a Farm Theme. Bravo to you and our hard-working Farmers!
