A Pumpkin Coaster

Happy Friday!  It's my time to share with a 
project and today I have a fabric pumpkin coaster 
that I whipped together really quick.
Great gift-giving idea for the coffee lover...
tuck inside a basket with a mug, a bag of coffee and 
flavored creamer!

First, I die-cut a piece of felt and two pieces of fabric with the Pumpkin Album Die.
 Just make sure that the second piece of fabric (for the back)
is the mirrored image side before you cut.
So, fabric face down, felt, fabric face up and then die cut.

You can also use a fabric interfacing between the layers of fabric, but felt is
all that I had on hand.  I left the edges of the pumpkin raw, but you can certainly
covered it with piping or turn the edges under before stitching.

I did attach a trimming of yellow jute to the edge of this pumpkin and then
a small yellow bow at the top for extra dimension and interest.
Make several of them in different colors and have them handy for your
Autumn guests to use!

  1. Shellye this is a fantastic project--way to think outside of the pumpkin die! ;)

  2. I am impressed with these, I could make some in whatever shape I want to - I could make them to match the season we are in!! What super fun and creative thinking on your part!! Have a great day!!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
