Halloween card

I love this Halloween vine by CottageCutz. It's very festive for Halloween and with a few snips it could even be used for Christmas. (I may have to try that next!)

Winter die into a fall scene

Here's another card I made using a CottageCutz winter scene die and making it into a fall scene. I love being able to stretch the uses of my supplies.

Fall card using a winter scene die

This card uses a CottageCutz die of a wintery looking church scene. By adding fall colors to it and flower soft in shades of autumn leaves I was able to turn it into a fall scene.

Welcome Fall card

I don't have very many fall dies (yet) so in creating this card I used the CottageCutz holly wreath die and inked it up in fall colors. While they don't look quite like oak leaves, I think it works pretty good. I used liquid pearls on the berries and my Welcome Fall banner stamp which I heat embossed and cut out by hand.

Felt case and mug cozy

This felt case was inspired (and mostly lifted) from a phone case that was seen online. A friend had posted it and said she wanted to make one for her ipad so I secretly made one and surprised her with it. The original creator did a wonderful job. (It's no longer in her etsy shop but to give credit where it's due, it's SewSweetStitches.)  I made this almost a year ago.

I made these recently for another friend who has been dealing with terminal cancer. I just wanted to let her know she was thought of often and to brighten her day so I made her a mug cozy (and a crocheted chicken coaster LOL). The little heart ornament I wrapped separately with a note to open when she was having a bad day and needed a hug.

Just add washi....

I did this a while ago but kept forgetting to add it to the blog.

Since most of this little storage unit is hidden, I didn't feel the need to concern myself with the rest of it. The top can be seen but it doesn't really bother me. And I can't see it when sitting. The unit is not seen from the sides as it's located between 2 small cabinets on my desk with no space on either side.

I used washi over all the wide areas on the front.  I didn't have to spend the money on or mess with paint. And it can easily be removed or changed.
