Fall for July Tag

July is here and the weather is (finally) hot where I am.  But Fall is on my mind.  For my tag I used the Halloween Blueprints set.  That Wheat stamp is irresistible.   

I actually don't have the set Tim used... Shocking but true.


Well, I snapped off a few shots before my battery died.


I'm loving the remix!  


Check out these adorable Metal Acorn Charms from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.  A little Fall Sneak Peek!


For the "Fall" I used the new Alphanumeric Marquee letters.


I used a wordband inked with rusty hinge distress paint.


"Life is good" with the Small Talk, Acorn Charms and a Gumdrop!


I have always loved this "Wheat" stamp and it was one of my first TH stamps I purchased!  I love how it peeks out.




As always each tag is fun the create and new things to learn.  Fingers crossed I have time to make one for August!  Oh those "lazy days" of summer aren't so lazy!

Sizzix Party Ideas: Fall Place Setting

I'm back from my very damp and long vacation!  Settling back into my routine now that all the vacation laundry is done.  

I have a few things I am working on before I go away again in August.  For the month of July the Eileen Hull Team has been creating awesome Party Decor projects.  Check out my Thanksgiving "FALL" Party Place Setting.



I used the Flower Pansy and Place Card and Flower die's for this project.  Along with those awesome coffee filters and distress inks fossilized amber, carved pumpkin and barn door.


Once inked and crinkled I cut the coffee filter flowers and inked the edges.  Gathered a couple more dies and stamps to pull this quick project together.


To help make projects quicker I will often cut a few extra cuts like with the Fall Foliage die.


I cut the Calendar Words October with Sizzix Leather Paper and inked the bottom with ground espresso for a gradient look.


I love the Flower Pansy adhered to the top with a Emerald Creek Pine Cone charm center.


Stamped with the Graphed stamp.


I love the Emerald Creek Squirrel tucked behind this real pinecone. 


In Canada Thanksgiving is celebrated in October. 


Wouldn't these be adorable on your table!


Stop by Eileen Hull's blog for more inspiration and idea's for your Party Decor project.

It's good to be home and in my craft room.  Before I head out again and adventure!

Coffee Filter Petals

Creating today with Eileen Hull's new flower die Heart and Soul and Crescent Art Product Photo Mat Board.  Perfect for inking, texture pasting and stamping.  I wasn't to sure what I was going to do.  I have never done something like this.  I really had fun!

Photo printed and Photo Mat Board inked and sprayed.


I was watching Eileen's Paper Flower Party on Facebook LIVE and she made her flowers with coffee filters!  So I had to try.


Ink the edges and spray with water.



Some stamping and stenciling

The assembled flower is secured with this cute metal button brad.  Some more random stamping and inking the texture paste.


Just in time for my honey's birthday.  He adores Venice so I wanted to use his favorite photo.


Fluffy delicious flower!  Coffee Filter is now a staple!


I love this Gothic Stencil.  Perfectly ornate for this Venice memory.


Yay for letters!


Random stamping from Documented.


A fun way to capture a memory.
