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.

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
