Autumn Wreath

I had a gift certificate to Michaels and used it to buy a wreath form. My vision was to make a wreath with the "chrysanthemum" flower on Close To My Heart's Art Philosophy cartridge. It's finally finished and hanging on my front door! Well maybe not finished, I may add a few more flowers to fill in, and I'm thinking about Opaque gems for the centers.

If you're in the area have fun watching the snow fall tomorrow! It's going to be a wet snow so I'm thinking about a snow jack o' lantern!

For Trick or Treat Time

It's been several weeks since I posted artwork. Partly due to starting and not finishing projects! Also, I've become hooked on a few TV shows. Tonight is the season finale of my new favorite Against the Wall on Lifetime. Then later this week Project Runway concludes.

I just finished these pillow boxes. These were super easy to make. First I used the cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. Then I decorated them with the Mischief Complements Rub-Ons. We rarely get trick or treaters. Who wouldn't want to go to a neighboring development instead of our rural road? However, I know three boxes will be handed out (my niece and nephews)!

October Crafting

Last week I completed a project with the My Creations Memory Game. It was part of a swap. Now I'm anxiously awaiting for all of the consultants to finish. I'll post pictures as soon as I get it back! In the meantime here is artwork from Close To My Heart to get you thinking about crafting this month. This picture is of the Mischief paper. Usually, I don't make Halloween cards or layouts, but I'll be using this paper for trick or treat gift bags.

This picture shows artwork using the October Stamp of the Month, Holiday Magic. Christmas is 12 weeks away! I can see this as a stamp set I'll reach for a lot when working on Holiday cards and layouts.
