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!

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: Quick Gift with Handmade Fall Flowers

I needed a quick gift to take to several people as a THANK YOU for helping me out with a church event. I purchased some beautiful, pumpkin-scented candles and then decorated them with a brown, satin ribbon bow and a beautiful, die-cut flower.

I used two shades of orange cardstock and the Spellbinders Textured Flowers dies the Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine to create the flowers. The leaves are cut from Carta Bella Classic Green Shimmer Cardstock.

These dies are GORGEOUS!!! I love that the petals and leaves have elegant line details … so different than just a plain die! Love that!

I love when I can use my craft supplies to dress up an everyday object. Try adding a handmade flower to the next gift you give to kick it up a notch! It definitely adds that special, custom touch!

Echo Park Paper: Explore Autumn

Autumn is my family’s favorite time to get out and explore. I love the colors of the season and the more relaxed feeling the city seems to take on as the temperature starts to fall. My son happens to feel the same way and often goes on “adventures” around town riding his bike to all of his favorite thrift shops. Today I’m recording this memory using the charming “A Perfect Autumn” collection by Echo Park Paper.

I built a series of vertical strips of patterned paper on the page to anchor the page design. I was especially drawn to the ruler and file folder strips from the Border Strips paper. I added a chipboard circle and two gem brads from the Decorative Brads to accent the flags printed on the file folder stip.

When my son was small, my husband called him “Brother Bear” … so you know I couldn’t help but add that adorable chipboard bear to this page! I scattered a few hand cut leaves from the Lovely Leaves paper and the pumpkin chipboard piece around the feet of the bear to build up a little “scene” for him to “live” in.
Above the bear I added the die cut word “Explore” using the Yellow/Teal Coordinating Solid Paper and Create Adventure Word Die Set.

To the left of the photo, at the bottom of the page, I added a tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack, a chipboard bird, and more hand cut leaves. A few enamel flowers and a couple of gem brads sprinkled among the leaves gives this area a bit of shimmer and shine.

I added the chipboard “Autumn” piece above the journaling for the page title, and then created a visual triangle of forest critters by adding the owl to the top of the smaller photo.

All of these cozy colors and animal friends have me excited to get out and enjoy the crisp, Autumn days!
