How to make my Rosette Fall Wreath

I have wanted a Fall Wreath for my front door for sometime now.  So, I set out looking for inspiration last week and I found inspiration stalking Pinterest.  What a unique wreath getting away from the typical grapevine wreath.  While working on my 200 cards I decided building this would be a nice break.
This wreath needs 2, 12x12 pieces of card stock, cut at 6" giving you 4, 6x12 pieces. Then scored at every 1/2".  Fan fold your paper, attach the 4 pieces with tape and make your rosette.  I cut a 7" round for the backing and glued the rosette with hot glue.  Otherwise it goes into a bit of an oval shape.  Keep reading and you'll see how the back looks.
I used 7 cuts of the TH Die Distressed Doily, layer and ink the edges.  Glue them together and then onto your rosette.  Then layer some big Scallp cuts.  These are all the same from Sweet Treat cut at 7", 5 3/4" and 5 1/2".

WOOHOO, the TH Jalopy Die!  First time using it:)  I cut the Japoly on that thick board paper that comes with your 12x12 paper packs.  Painting with the black dauber for the car and brown for the pieces.  Once dried I sanded the edges of the Jalopy, inked with Walnut Stain ink then a thick coat of Rock Candy for crackle!

FALL is cut with Grunge Board and my Word Play die, painted orange, a little walnut ink and coated with rock candy. So are my Movers and Shapers pumpkins!  I "strapped" the pumpkin to the roof of the Jalopy with twine and glued.

There are those Pine Cones again collected by my kids.  If you missed the FALL Home decor project and these wee pine cones check it out HERE.  Lots of hot gluing!

I layered some $1 store leaves and berries.

Using thick twine I attached several cut pieces cut at different lengths for the bottom but raffia would work too.  I also hung 3 large pine cones tied with twine.  Finally a strand of $1 Store Fall Vine, cut into 3 pieces and attached to the back.  Everything is stapled and glued with hot glue.  It's not pretty but you get the idea.
Hanging on my front door for now with a suction hook.  All my Fall decorations are coming out this weekend.

Finally, I have a FALL Wreath:)
If you saw my little teaser on Facebook this morning then you might be happy to see what I was working on!
Oh I'm thinking this may turn into a Halloween one in the coming weeks!  Back to my 200 cards!  Have fun if you make one too:)  I really like making this.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
