Autumn Wooden Elements

For All Things (3)

Today’s card is another clean and simple card I created with the For All Things stamp set. I simply stamped the background image using So Saffron and Tangelo Twist and then used Island Indigo for my sentiment and acorns. I really like this color combination. It’s not so traditional.

Fun Autumn Wooden Elements

Have you seen the fun Autumn Wooden Elements in our Holiday Catalog on page 46? I love these fun little wooden pieces.

For All Things

Here is a card that I made using the little oak leaf. I love them natural, but thought it would be fun to try and add some color this time. Adding color was really simple to do. I simply grabbed one of my Stampin’ Sponges and sponged. Yep, it was that easy!

Fall Fun with the Chalkboard Banner Kit

Have you ever tried one of our Simply Created Kits? Well they’re great when you don’t have a lot of time or just want to create without any prep time and cutting since pretty much everything comes in the kit that you need, except scissors and adhesive.

They are also easy to step up simply by adding things that you already have. And our kits coordinate with all kinds of different products.

Today I’m going to share with you the fall banner I made that I made for my Holiday Catalog Premiere Party on Sunday with the Chalkboard Banner Simply Created Kit (133795). The banner was quick and easy to put together and looks great I think.

FALL Holiday Catalog Premiere Chalkboard Banner Simply Created Kit

Everyone will think that you spent a lot of time creating. But you know that you didn’t have to!

In addition to the kit I used my Autumn Accents Die (127812) to create some leaves and acorns for the pennants in between my letters.


I’ve made a quick video to show you how I did the leaves and acorns.

After I attached the leaves to the pennants I added some of our NEW Autumn Wooden Elements (135846) and a little bit of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon (131206) that I tied in a knot to the chalk board pennants with a Glue Dot. I’m really loving these little wooden elements – they are just too cute and add just the right pop of color and texture.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a favorite fall recipe with you.

Amazing Colored Glass

This past Sunday I held my Holiday Catalog Premiere – I love these events since they give me a chance to pamper you, my customers. After all I couldn’t do and share what I love without you! So I thought I’d share some of the projects for those of you who were not able to attend.

Here is a picture of the snack table. (I’m sorry to say I forgot to take pictures of everyone though out the event since we were having such a good time – But luckily I did take some before everyone got here. LOL)

Holiday Catalog Premiere food table

Today’s project is one that I made to decorate the snack table. I came across some fall flowers while out and about one day and couldn’t resist them. Don’t you love the Blackberry Bliss mums?

fall flowers

When I got them home I realized I wanted to make a vase that would pull out the Blackberry Bliss color in the arrangement. Purple has always been a favorite of mine and I just love our new In Color!  So here is what I came up with.

Amazing Colored Glass

So what do you think? I just love the little Autumn Wooden Elements (135846) from the Holiday Catalog that I dangled down the front of the vase. I’m finding all kinds of uses for them! (They aren’t available yet but you can begin ordering from the Holiday Catalog Thursday, August 28th)

Want to know how I added the color to this vase?  Well you’re in luck I’ve made a video tutorial just for you – I’ve named this project Amazing Colored Glass! since I think it is amazing what we can do with our paper crafting supplies –  hope you enjoy it.

Here you go…. my Amazing Colored Glass Video Tutorial

Just a few tips I forgot to mention while taping.

First, you’ll want to let your vase dry really well – it may take a few days depending on how thick your color layer is.

Second, your color layer can scratch. So if your doing a vase like this, you may want to loosly line the inside with tissue paper before adding your flowers, etc.

So what do you think? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

I’ll be sharing more about the Holiday Catalog Premiere tomorrow so stop back by then. And If you weren’t able to pick up your copy of our NEW Holiday Catalog during my Catalog Premiere I’ll be happy to send one to you. Just contact me and include your name, address, phone number and email address and I’ll be happy to mail one to you.

P.S…. If you are a current customer of mine (which means you’ve ordered from me in the last 60 days) yours is on the way to you!
