Harvest Happiness for Your Home

Do you enjoy adding homemade touches to your seasonal or home decor? Greet your guests as they arrive to your home for Thanksgiving dinner this year with a beautiful Fall wreath hanging on your front door. Or try hanging it across a mirror or mantle.

You will need a package of Fall Leaf Die Cut Shapes (34115) by American Crafts, an old dictionary, a wreath form, and your hot glue gun. Let’s get creating!

I purchased an old dictionary at my local donation center for just a few dollars. I used a pair of scissors to cut several simple leaf shapes out of the book pages.

Next, I used a glue gun to add the leaves to a grapevine wreath form. First, I lightly rolled/folded the Fall Leaf Die Cut Shapes into a cone and adhered them to the wreath form, making sure I distributed the colors evenly. Then, I filled in the spaces in between the colorful leaves with the neutral bookpaper leaves.

I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut several branch shapes from 12×12 Chocolate Textured Cardstock (71047) and adhered them here-and-there around the wreath to add a bit of variety.

The final step was to top my creation off with a burlap ribbon bow. I love the way it turned out! I will be hanging this in my hallway across the front of a mirror for a bit of fall flair!

Carta Bella Paper: Mother Daughter Frame

I love a good quote … especially the ones that pull at your heartstrings … and the Our Family collection by Carta Bella Paper is full of them! I especially love this one about mothers.

I used a 5×7 black frame and added the green patterned paper for a background (Beautiful Afternoon Paper). I then added the 4×6 cut apart card from the 4×6 Journaling Cards Paper, wrapping it first a few times with a length of black twine.

I used the Stitched Circle Nesting Die to create the patterned paper frame for my photo (Family Memories Paper), and then accented it with a cluster of floral stickers.

The three butterfly stickers flying up the left side of the frame add the perfect finishing touch!

If you’d like to see me put this project together, check out Echo Park Paper’s instagram feed from about a week ago.

Echo Park Paper: Pumpkin Muffin Tote

Happy Fall, friends! The minute the weather turns cool my family and I start craving pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. We always make several batches; some of the batches are for us to eat, but then we also like to make additional batches to take to our friends in the neighborhood.

This year I used the A Perfect Autumn collection by Echo Park Paper to create a darling tote to package up our muffins. The tote fits 9 muffins stacked in three rows inside a cellophane bag perfectly, and is sooo much cuter than a zip-top bag!

I created a tag for this bag by trimming one of the 3×4 Journaling Cards to a smaller size. I then notched the top two corners to create a tag shape.

These would be so easy to make ahead of time to have on hand. I used three different patterned papers for my totes and then used the Leaves & Acorn Die Set and the Carta Bella Hello Fall Layered Pumpkin Die Set to decorate the front.

I varied each bag a bit by using different tags and elements to accent the die cut pumpkins and leaves. On the polka dotted bag, I fussy-cut the word “FALL” from one of the 3×4 cut apart Journaling Cards.

Next, I added the squirrel and leaf sticker from the Element Stickers. I used a small chipboard circle with an acorn to accent the squirrel and added a sprinkling of brads above his head for some dimension.

The orange gingham bag is decorated with several more Element Stickers clustered together. I then added the Fox tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack to the handle.

Spellbinders: Halloween Shaker Cupcake Toppers

Yum, yum … give me some! Are you going to a Halloween party this year? Maybe you’re in charge of bringing cupcakes to the office party, or your child’s class party? I always love a festive cupcake (Mmmmm!) … especially when it comes dressed for the occasion!

Today I have a fun twist on the classic cupcake topper … Shaker Cupcake Toppers!

Spellbinders and Scrapbook.com were kind enough to send me a Platinum 6 die cut machine and a couple of their die sets to play with! Last week, I shared a quick and easy gift idea using the Textured Flowers die.

Today, I am playing with the Witch on Broom dies!

When I saw that witch, I knew right away that I wanted her to be flying across a spooky moon … and then I saw the bats! What if I create a moon shaker with the bats inside?!!! YES!!!! … So that is exactly what I did.

I added them to the top of decorative straws in Halloween colors, and then added ribbons and square buttons tied with black twine. The witch, double-cut and layered in orange foil and black cardstock, floats across the front of the moon shaker with the help of a few foam dots.

I created some cupcake wrappers with my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to coordinate. So cute!
