Fall wreaths

Fall wreaths with paper leaves. Products listed below.

I started with styrofoam wreaths from the dollar store and wrapped it with small pieces of fabric. 
All kinds of product in these. Stamped leaves by Stampin Up (Colorbox ink and die cut with matching dies). Large leaves with embossed detail by Martha Stewart. 

Leaves by Creative Memories large brown, medium red leaves, embossed yellow and many small oak and maple leaves which is a punch. Those red leaves were either sprayed with Glimmer Mist or stamped with a word background stamp by Hero Arts.

Spellbinders leaves are the larger orange in the back as well as one five leaf and one three leaf  die cuts cut out of cereal box. 

The leaves by Marvy are punches that are big in the back or super tiny in the front.

There are 2 green ones that I see were cut from my Cricut and not needed for whatever reason. The plain green leaves are die cuts by Sizzix.
There are two green leaves from my early days for scrapbook and card making when I was in design teams. The leaves are digital stamps but I’m not sure where they’re from. I also have Dreamweaver Stencils they are small. I used embossing paste (probably white) and when it was dry I applied Perfect P earls. There’s a few random leaves and they are all close to each other (makes it easier to point out). There’s a green tree and orange glitter felt leave. The last thing I’m going to point out on this one is  a "lick it and stick it" somewhere type thing. I found it in my MIL’s craft things. Maybe they were supposed to go on the back of an envelope. Idk but they add nice color to the wreaths.

Yellow wreath:  There are a lot of the same leaves on this one.
Here are some others:
Stamped leaves by Close to me heart leaves are the two medium size green and one caramel color with veins darker than the leaf border.
Canvas background stamp by Stampin Up.
Maple leaf orange and Acorn stamps by  Inkadinkado stamps.
Green leaves, maple and oak
Background flowers by Daisy D
Burgundy felt maple
Flourish by Sizzix
Three off white leaves with one with inked edges and green with polka dot paper are by Cricut.
Two flowers by Petaloo
Water colored leaf is a digital stamp
Large die cut leaves are from a school my step mom worked at. Scallop circle die by Spellbinders
Tiny leaf stamp by Clear Dollar stamps
Two pre-made leaf die cuts by Recollections.
One of the Spellbinders dies is cut out of upholstery type sample fabric.

Lots of information. I hope it makes sense.

Recyled cards

I'll start off by saying, I'm passionate about recycling. Any chance I'm able to recycle a card, it's going to happen. If there isn't time to do it now, I'll keep them into one of the 3 totes waiting for me until there is. Here are some Christmas cards that I put together from other cards received. When I say put together it means I cut off the back, taped them onto new card bases and stamped a sentiment on the inside.
 The brown/pink/blue card was a small square that I backed with Stampin Up patterned paper. The Holy Nights Card, I was only able to save the the image and found these papers that matched. But still, not my cards. I'm donating these cards to different silent auctions that I make baskets for. These are gorgeous cards. Some bidder is really going to be happy when they see these up close.

Manly Monday Golf games

I've been working on Type 1 diabetes silent auction donations. Gift cards/certificates needed to be displayed at the event and I remembered there were a bunch of frames from my mom's house.

 I put the tickets in a frame with cardstock and then made a sign to better tell what was in the frame. The signs were then taped onto the back of the frame. Do this project gave me a chance to get rid of things like frames and golf paper.

The first picture originally had white letter stickers and they all fell off. So I die cut these new ones using my Quickutz. It was fun to blow the dust off of it.

For some reason I thought the sign that had lost the stickers was this one below and so I made a new one and ended up with....

Two signs with the same places and not the sign I needed. Ugh! 

Thanks for looking.

Slug Bug Card

The car stamp is by Unity and I colored it in with colored pencils. I used a water pen to blend it in before fussy cutting it out and stamping the license plate with Michael’s dollar bin alphabet stamps. The sentiment is by Hero Arts, peace symbol border is by Creative Imagination and flower brad is by Eyelet Outlet. Tag maybe My Mind’s Eye and I’m not sure about the ribbon and eyelet.

 I made this card for my niece that turned 25 (what!) and the slug bug is a significant part of our relationship. When she graduated from high school she had a hippie themed party.  I’m not sure if hippie is the correct term for it but she had things like peace signs and Volkswagen bus photo prop. The car stamp was used for her the graduation party invitations. We collaborated a lot to get just the look she was going for and then had fun making them with my sister and nephew. Good bonding family time together.

Thanks for looking.
