Fall is my favorite season. We’ve been lucky to be have enjoyed a longer-than-usual fall season here in Utah … but it has finally taken a stormy turn and I’m afraid that our Fall ship has sailed. Oh, well. Atleast I can still enjoy the colors of the season with my scrappy products!
FALL IS HERE
My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste Charm Collection: Spin Paper, Trend Paper, Relaxed Paper, Shine Paper, Route Paper, Sweet 4×6 Journal Card, Bits & Pieces (Layered Stickers), Tiny Word Stickers, 5×7 Sticker Sheet, Enamel Dots, Decorative Buttons, Chipboard Stickers
The title was cut in two layers using a word art cut file by Lori Whitlock and my Silhouette Cameo machine. I embossed it using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and my Cuttlebug machine. The middle section is backed with a bit of orange cardstock and I added the chipboard heart and button over the letter “A.” The “How Sweet It Is” banner phrase was cut out from the MME Sweet 4×6 Journal Card.
I handcut out a zig zag from the Shine paper for a bit more texture at the bottom and then added the layered sticker flowers to the bottom corner of my photo. I’m falling in love with the Tiny Word Stickers lately! They are the perfect little accent to add to other embellishments.
Have a great week!
The My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste Charm collection is PERFECT for Fall photos! I’ve been having so much fun playing with this collection this week.
My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste Charm Collection: Jovial Paper, Relaxed Paper, Shine Paper, Sweet 2×6 Journal Card, Bits & Pieces (Layered Stickers), 5×7 Sticker Sheet
Last year my family broke away for a Fall weekend getaway to beautiful Midway, Utah. The resort we stayed at was decorated beautifully for fall and we had a lot of fun exploring the grounds, including the pumpkin-filled water fountain.
I created the owl paper piecing with my Silhouette Cameo machine and an owl cut from the Silhouette store (by Michelle Renee). The title word is a cut file from the Silhouette store by Sarah Bailey. I added large black pearls (Recollections at Michael’s) to the owl for his eyes and then accented him with the stitched vellum cloud stickers from the My Mind’s Eye Bits & Pieces pack.
More Bits & Pieces layered stickers and a heart sticker accent the 2×6 journal card at the bottom of the page. I added navy stitching around the perimeter of the page with my sewing machine to tie in with the MME stickers.
Thanks for coming by!
I wanted to create a Thank You gift for a few people that went out of their way to help us out last week for my grandparents’ funeral. I have been wanting to create the darling 3D scarecrow in the Leaves Are Falling SVG Kit by SVG Cuts, and decided that it would make a great gift for them since they could keep it up from now until Thanksgiving. Here are the four scarecrows I made using a collection by Die Cuts with a View called Modern Meadow that I picked up at JoAnn’s. (Darnit! I should’ve got a “group photo” of them all together … “Take me to your leader!” Hehe!)
Basically, their shirt and hat papers are what is different on each one. (Their hats are created from various patterned paper leftovers I had in my stash from My Mind’s Eye and WRMK.) And the embellishments vary slightly on each one.
I also created this card by SVG Cuts from the Caramel Apple Pie SVG Kit to go with each one. The tag on the card is embossed with the Cuttlebug Thanks 4-Set.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Here is the card I created for the BasicGrey Word Card Making Day celebration.
Fall is my favorite season and Halloween is my favorite … so it should come as no surprise that the Persimmon line is my favorite right now! I wanted to combine all the warm colors and textures of autumn together on one card and this is what I came up with.
I accordion-folded three strips of patterned paper to create three dimensional rows on my card. I wanted them to have a “mini blind” look about them, so I used a 1/16″ hole punch to punch holes in each of the folds and then threaded a length of embroidery floss through them using a needle. I tied each end of the thread in a double-knot to hold the folds in place. Next, I stacked the rows on top of each other and then added my design on top. I used die cuts + transparencies, stickers, and chipboard pieces, and a decorative brad … all from the Persimmon line.
I wanted to mat the Happy Halloween tag with the scalloped circle chipboard piece. At this point I had quite a bit of pattern going on, so instead of leaving the chipboard piece as-is, I flipped it over, peeled off the release paper, and sprinkled the adhesive with navy glitter. The solid color and subtle sparkle were just what my card needed to balance everything out.
