A Pumpkin Duo & A Mini Too

This is post sure that you are a follower of my blog
as I will be giving away a GRAND PRIZE on the 500th post!
It's almost Fall-decorating-time at my house!  
I love decorations that can be carried from September through Thanskgiving
and this Pumpkin Duo idea can certainly do that.
For both projects that I'm showing today I've used
"Feels Like Home" Collection
Create these 3D pumpkins for place setting markers at your Thanksgiving table
 or cluster a few together as a centerpiece. Sizes will vary depending on what type of oval or
 round die that you choose to use.  For my duo I've used the same oval lace die (by Die Namics)
 and turned the shape so that I would have a short and tall pumpkin.
 You will need to die-cut six shapes for each piece (or more if desired).  
Fold each piece in half and glue the halves to the next piece until a complete circle has been formed. 
 I cut a bamboo skewer in half, colored it brown with a permanent marker and then 
inserted it into the middle of each pumpkin.  
To the top of the skewer I glued on one of the round wooden stick pin pieces. 
 Make banners from the different sticker sentiments; just apply the sticker to a piece of paper,
 trim out and then punch holes along the side and string onto the skewer. 
 It may be necessary to trim off the bottom of your pumpkin so that it's flat and will sit without tipping over. 
Next up is a mini album that was featured on the "Feels Like Home" retail promo

I used a mix of the Naturals embellishments and burlap 6X6 album as the base.
By using the 6X6 Paper Pack, there is no need to trim any of the papers...just attach
them directly to the album pages and you're all set!

I'm participating in a couple of blog hops this week, so I'll be back to share soon!


  1. Love, love, love the mini album - adorable!

  2. Beautiful projects! This is such a pretty line (love the vibrant Fall colors) and you were so clever with those little pumpkins! :)

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
