Newton's Nook Designs' August Release ~ Day 3 ~ Newton Dreams of New York


Welcome back for the third day of Newton's Nook Designs' August Release.  Today's set is sure to delight all you Newton lovers, introducing "Newton Loves New York':



Purr-sonally I see this set delighting not just Newton lovers and cat lovers, but it is also purr-fect for scrapbooking trips to New York & apple picking trips to the orchard (LOVED doing that as a kid ever fall and eating cider donuts - and look - Jen even included a donut image in the set - SQUEEEE! - Thank you Jen!!), and for cards & presents for teachers too!  Definitely versatile!  And Jen created purr-fectly coordinating dies for this set too!!:


Yaay!  

Because I loved apple picking as a kid, I fell in love with Newton holding up that BIG apple and created this fun apple cider packet holder to show him off:

Apple Cider Packet by Crafty Math Chick | Newton Loves New York stamp set and dies by Newton's Nook Designs

I decided to make my own patterned paper by stamping the small apple image several times on some kraft cardstock and then coloring them in with Copic markers.  I actually tried to color Newton like Hobbes, Jen's other kitty (he needs some online love too!).  One packet of cider mix (which although it isn't the real thing is a pretty good substitute if you ever wish to try it!) can be adhered with a glue dot inside and the packet itself is just a 4.25" by 11" piece of cardstock scored at 5.25" and 5.75" - easy!  I just punched a hole in the top and tied it together with a piece of red burlap ribbon and some jute cord.  Hope you like it!
