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 little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
