I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Autumn Tree

Do you have the Cricut cartridge Artfully Sent by Close to My Heart yet (Get it HERE)? I just love this cartridge because I can make cute cards so quickly. I was inspired to make this card because this particular embossing folder looks so great with the tree. I inked the embossing to add some depth and then used my Skittles and ribbon for some pop. 

Challenges Entered
Clear it Out Challenge: Stash + 3 of the same thing (two sets of three Skittles)
Craft-Dee BowZ: Handmade Bow (CDB19)
CAS on Sunday: Ribbon or Twine
