A little fall...

I just love these darling little pumpkins. And better yet, change the papers and add a ribbon and you have darling little Christmas ornaments. You can fill them with potpouri and add a little seasonal smell to the house too!
These are made with Stampin' Up! Autumn Vine Designer Paper, Stampin' Up! Garden Green Cardstock, Stampin' Up! Creamy Carmel Cardstock, Stampin' Up! Brads, Stampin' Up! Oval Punch.

Here are the remaining directions:

1. Cut 10 pieces of orange paper 1/2 inch x 4 inch.
2. Stack together and punch a hole through all pieces at the top and bottom.
3. Adhere pieces with brads through the holes.
4. To create the round shape, spread out each piece of paper.

If you want them a little smaller, change your piece number by 1 or 2. If you want them larger, increase your piece number by 1 or 2.

Be the first to post YOUR little pumpkins and win a few sheets of the Autumn Vine DSP.

LO Share...

These were for a challenge at From Here 2 Scrapternity. We had to "copy" another layout to make our own. I needed a 2 pg for these photo's. (A little late, now that she is 2.) Anyway, I think it worked out really well. I would love to know how to get the color's the same. Same camera, same software... geez!

Square Fold Pop Up!

These cards are so much fun. I love this stamp set, Embrace Life, from Stampin' Up! These are so much fun to make and super simple! This particular card was a test run, so it uses the current SU! set Embrace Life, but my color's are from our retired In Color. We will be making these in an upcoming class!

Using scraps...

I had a challenge to use 36 pieces of scrap paper in a LO (FH2S). Well I did (actually a few more than that). I think it's cute. Not my typical type of page, but it was fun to do. You just can't have a bad LO with little bit! This is her funny/wrinkled face. She doesn't do it much anymore, she was 18 mo in this photo. Thanks for looking.
