Hey Crafters, Long time no Blog. Hope you are all doing well and starting to get settled in for the fall and all of the cooler weather. We are super excited for the projects that are coming up with Laura at Following The Paper Trail and Kathryn at The Scrap Beach. The Lockers that Laura just finished are adorable and I can not wait to see what her Fall Project is going to be for this coming Friday. Monday night football with Kathryn should be a blast as she continues to work on the pumpkin book. You can find more information on their blogs for up coming projects and ideas.www.followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com for Laura's shows and at www.thescrapbeach.blogspot.com
I found myself with some time on my hands yesterday, and found these cute pumpkins on the Split Coast Stampers Website and of course I had to make a few for my table decorations. They were super easy, fast and adorable.
I used plain carstock and stamped the leaves on, and then sprayed the paper with a few different colors of Glimmer mist. The Tattered Leaves Die was perfect for the pumpkin leaves, and I cut them out of the Tim Holtz Craft Resist paper and also sprayed them with glimmer mist. I cut thin strips of cardstock, sprayed them with .... yes... more Glimmer Mist and then wound them around a skewer to give them the curl.
You can use the link below to get to the great tutorial on them and give them a try. the only thing I did different from the instructions, was when laying the strips out, I placed them one across from the other to form the circle, and then gathered them from the way they were layered starting from the last to the first. I also put the bottom layers on the brad in the same way.
You can find the instructions here
We also now have the Crate Paper Farmhouse Collection in stock and are shipping it as fast as we can to make sure you have it in time to Follow along with with Recipe Book that Kathryn is doing. We are also matching the papers to cardstock to have available for you, and that will be available in a couple of days.
Happy Crafting !!
