Fall Leaves Banner

Hi, all!  Today I have another FALL decor project to show you.  

I used mostly Fun Stampers Journey product in creating this banner.

Inks: Oatmeal cookie (I used this to stamp the background image onto the Oatmeal Cookie cardstock)

Here are a few close ups!

This was a super easy, if not a bit time consuming (all of that die cutting and all!), banner that anyone can make!  I used my BossKut Gazelle to cut out the give thanks letters and popped them up (as well as all the layers) with pop dots.  

If you have any questions on the construction of this banner or are interested in any of the products just let me know or visit to purchase directly from my page.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Fall Leaves Wreath Pillow

Hey, there! Today I have a fun fall decor project to show you.  :) To keep this project super simple, I bought a generic pillow cover and a pillow form from Hobby Lobby.

I first die cut the felt leaf shapes using my Journey Grand and Autumn Days Die Set.

Next, I traced an embroidery hoop on the the pillow cover with a pencil and started sewing each leaf onto the cover.

And that's it!  Fairly simple project for those of you with even basic sewing skills!  I even thought to embroider the words "Give Thanks" in the center.  I will update a pic if I decide to do that.  :)

Make sure to stop by my Fun Stampers Journey page if you are interested in purchasing the Autumn Day die set!

One Page Wonder Mini-Book

Hi, everyone! Today I'm joining my fellow Scor-pal designers for our monthly "More than One Score" challenge.  This month's theme is: mini-books/albums.  Make sure to go and check out all the beautiful projects our designers have made!  I hope it inspires you to join  us this month!  :)  Here is my little one page wonder book.

1. Using your Scor-Pal, score a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock at every three inches both horizontally and vertically.  You will, essentially, be making a grid with 3" squares.

2. Fold on the score lines and then cut 9" in on opposite sides along the scored lines, vertically, as shown below.

3. Fold using the accordion fold method as shown in the pictures and video below.

Video of the accordion fold:

4. Using Scor-Tape, adhere sides together to create book "pages" as shown below.  Watch video to see how the pages come together first.

5.Embellish as desired!

Halloween Treat Box

Hi, there!  October is here and so is a bit of cooler weather around this part of the Texas! (and there was much rejoicing!)  

Today I am joining the lovely ladies at Scor-pal for our monthly "More Than One Score" challenge.  This month's theme, as you might have guessed, is Treat Boxes.  Go HERE to check it out and play along, you might just win a prize!

 1. Cut two pieces of patterned paper to 6" x 9",  and using your Scor-Pal, score each piece at 1 1/2",  3" and 6 1/4" on the longest side as pictured below.

 2. Then, turn to shortest side and score at 1/2" and 3 1/4".

 3. Add Scor-Tape on top of one of the 6x9 pieces along the 1/2" scored edge, and adhere both 6x9 pieces, as shown in the pictures below.

If you have a distinct pattern to your paper, make sure to line the edges properly so that the pattern matches on both sides.

4. Create the bottom flaps by cutting along the scored lines 2 3/4" in, as pictured below.

 5. Cut off the small 1/2" x 2 3/4" just created.

 6. Cut out two top sections as shown below, using your previously scored lines as guides.  This will create the top handles of the treat box. The measurements for the cut-outs are 3" in and 2 3/4" across.

 7. Fold your treat box template so that the two top handles are together as shown below and, using a circle punch, punch out a circle in the center of the first scored section.

 Your treat box template should now look like this.

8. Fold on the scored lines of the handles, and add Scor-Tape to 1/2" flap on the left of your template as shown below.

 9. Remove backing of Scor-Tape and adhere template sides together as shown below.

It's coming together! 

10. Fold the bottom flaps of the box in and apply Scor-Tape to the last flap and adhere to close box.

Your treat box is now ready to embellish!!!
