Happy October 2nd. This is Cindy from Scrap-obsessed.blogspot.com with a couple of fall home decor projects. Before getting to my projects today I'd like to say 'Thank You' for having me back. Not only is it an honor to be able to come here and share some of my projects with you, but I also love coming here to look at all of the wonderful projects made by the other designers. They are all such an inspiration.
For my first project today I wanted to use my new Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge. I just got it in the mail a couple of days ago and I absolutely love it. There's an image for just about everything. With Thanksgiving in mind, which will most likely be at my house this year, I was looking for a way to make place settings. I found the perfect images on page 78. I cut the 3D pumpkins at 4" and 5". The patterned papers I used are from an old paper stack called Femme Fatale by Recollections.
Before assembling them I inked the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink by Stampin' Up. Once the pumpkins were put together I cut the leaves at 4" and 5". I inked the edges with Old Olive ink by Stampin' Up, added twine and a button.
I then cut some of the very cute tags on page 32 at 2". This cartridge has some of the cutest tags, not just the ones I used. Again I inked the edges and then stamped the names of family members using the Close to my Heart Type Face letter stamps.
For my other project today I would like to share an idea I found on Pinterest. (love that site)
This front porch planter was super easy to make, but was a big hit at my son's housewarming party. I used three planters stacked one on top of the other in 3 sizes (largest on the bottom). I then added the words Home Sweet Home cut out of vinyl from the Quarter Note cartridge. Each word was welded using my Gypsy and cut at 3 1/2", 3 3/4, and 4" respectively. I then added my plants of choice and that was it. Super easy.
