Fall Brownstone

The falling leaves have been stunning these past weeks.  If you follow me you know I love to create for Fall. When I get to create for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine I get to make Fall projects in the spring.  Although this project didn't make it in the magazine I do get to still blog it.    

I snapped off a few photo's.  Honestly, sometimes I get lost in the creation and loose all track of time and what I should be doing!  So limited how to photo's for this post.


You need a few dwellings like the Village Brownstone, Village CottageVillage Rooftops, .  For the this rooftop I cut up a piece of oven liner and inked it with some alcohol ink.  I also used some woodgrain paper/ oven liner on the Village Dwelling and more oven liner on the other brownstone embossed with the Basket Weave texture fade.


Once it's inked I cut, layered and trimmed the rooftop.  All the dwellings have been layered in paper. I did use some of the cuts from the Village Bungalow, shutters, dormers and fence pieces.  I attached the dormers to the Brownstone.


Accessorizing is the best part!  I used these small wood dowels for the pillars, hardware and twine for a rustic look.


Adding the inked up mini woodland trees is like landscaping for a crafter.  I cut a bunch of the fence pieces on chipboard to create these yards and gates.


The Fall Foliage leaves are sprinkled about and the Basket Weave texture fade roof looks amazing!


I love all the pumpkins, trees and leaves tucked all around the Village.  


The great thing about these villages is you can create them for ever season and add on to them each year. Now... to keep my cats away from them!

  6. I can just picture you in your studio wringing your hands and giggling with delight as you spend hours cutting, assembling, detailing and landscaping your village! How wonderful this village is, and I appreciate all the work that went into it! The devil's in those wonderful, thoughtful details! My favorite trick you pulled here is using the oven liner-genius!

    I had to laugh about your cats. Biskit has a favorite pass-time. She jumps on top of the upright freezer and pulls all the tiny leaves off a project I made a couple years ago (They are really crunchy by now), and drops them to the floor. Good luck with yours!

    Thank you, too, for sharing this at Anything But Cute. A perfect Autumn Day! Hugs! Sara Emily DT

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…

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…

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…
