So you would think I decorate for the holidays a lot more than I do, but I saw an idea similar to these rosettes and knew I had to make them for Halloween. I loved the way they turned out and have decorated my entryway with these rosettes and more.

Handmade Halloween Decorations for Your Party

The Designer Rosette Bigz XL die made the larger 6″ rosette so quick and easy to make. The smaller 3″ rosette was made by scoring a 1 1/2″ X 12″ piece of paper each 1/4″ and folding. You can see a video tutorial for these rosettes below.

For my entryway decoration I added a few fake leaves, pumpkin votive holders, and battery tea light candles. I am so happy with my display. Watch the video below to see how I made my rosettes. You may need to come to my blog to see the video.

Aren’t these cards so cute? They are little 3 1/2″ X 3 1/2″ gift enclosure card made with the Wondrous Wreath set and I just love them. In fact, I think I will be making several more of these cards.

Wondrous Wreat Trio of Cards

These little cards would be great to add to those gifts that you make or get for people that do things for you, like the mailman, delivery people or bus drivers. I try make little treats and these will be perfect for that give some of my homemade fudge.

I did make them a bit larger than the 3″ X 3″ size so the wreath would fit nicely. That means that I do not have a pre-made envelope for these cards so I will pull out my Envelope Punch Board to quickly make envelopes if I need them.

I saw a card somewhere with leaves made from a newsprint and I though that was an awesome idea so decided to create a card with the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I love the leaves as the focal image.

Chalkboard Newsprint For All Things

The sentiment from For All Things is stamped with White Craft Ink to create the chalkboard look. I left the chalkboard “clean”, but it would be great with white ink brushed on to give the “eraser” look.

Chalkboard Newsprint For All Things

I am working on making “cleaner” cards with a little more white space around the stamped images and embellishments. I am really happy with how this card turned out and can’t wait to make more newsprint leaves. Click on the links below to find these products in my Online Store.

Vacations are supposed to be restful right? Well I have had quite a time recovering my our wonderful trip to Washington D.C. last weekend. We had to fly home through Chicago and had a few delays. I am just grateful that we made it home.

Pumpkin Curvy Keepsake Box
I think I am finally to the place where things will be getting back to normal around here (whatever normal is) and I will be back to sharing more projects. Of course this weekend is also my daughter’s Homecoming weekend and she is having a blast helping with the float and today is the big football game.

Curvy Keepsakes Pumpkin

I took a bit of time to create this fun pumpkin with the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die.  It was amazingly easy to make and they are so fun to decorate. I made a quick video showing how I made this box. (I am learning how to use a new camera so please excuse my video errors.) You may have to come to my site to see the video.

 Have you ever stamped on to your Designer Series Paper (patterned paper) before? The Hardwood image (#133035) looks amazing on some of the Color Me Autumn papers(#135820).

Woodgrain Stamp on Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper
This was one of the cards recently made at my Fall Cards class and I absolutely love the the Hardwood image here. The pumpkins are from the Fall Fest bundle and those great background leaves are from the Seasonally Scattered stamp set. We just covered up the “thanks”with the pumpkins. That white background piece was cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelit. Don’t miss the 
Ovals framelits (#129381) are on sale this week! $6.74 off!
