I have been patiently waiting to showcase the Martha Stewart elements.  See the cat?  Later you won't!  For this card I used a blue card base that has a kraft interior.  The fabulous papers are from the ISBG Tool Shed Spider's Web Kit.  I have been having so much fun distressing these papers with my small scissors.  This card uses only kit items and a small corner punch, an edge punch of your choice and silver pearls from my stash.  I am absolutely in love with the laces that came in the kit, in both black and white.  And the charms are also super cute.  In fact, I considered holding back a pair and making some spooky Halloween earrings (I may still).

I did my best to photograph the super cool Martha Stewart images.  The image above shows the black cat (just one of several images in the kit).  Now take a peek at this photo:

Isn't that the coolest thing!  Spooky, right?!?

Happy to show you this card and the fantastic element from the kit.  Be sure to check out the rest of the blog and the store for more great ideas!

"Thankful" Fall Wall Hanging

Prima, Scrapbook Kits, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

Hi, everyone! It's Laurie again with another project using The International Scrapbook Garden Autumn Hayride kits. When I was going through the kits, there were so many cool embellishments that I just couldn't bear to hide away in a scrapbook. I knew I wanted to create some type of fall decor with them. So I ended up making a small fall-themed wall hanging.

The only things on this that are NOT from Autumn Hayride are the two mini clothespins. I had it in my head that I wanted clothespins on this to hold up a small photo or ephemera embellishment, which is what I ended up doing, and believe it or not, Walmart had the exact mini clothespins I was looking for in its craft aisle!

I covered the Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Leaves with the Prima Art Alchemy Antique Brilliance Wax Red Amber, painted the Creative Embellishments chipboard leaf wreath in the Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint Metallique Plum Preserves, cut out a circle from the Pion Design Summer Falls Into Autumn Tags paper that was a little bit wider than the chipboard wreath, layered the 49 and Market burlap over the paper, and then started layering everything else on top of that.

I've also got the May Arts Jumbo Leaves Ribbon on here, and one of the Prima Flowers Butterfly Kiss Melody butterflies (gorgeous!), as well as some of the Prima Amber Moon Say It In Crystals and Amber Moon ephemera.

I was going to pin a small fall photo in the middle of this, but then I decided that not everything I do has to have a photo, so I created a little banner with three pieces of the ephemera and backed it with the Prima Amber Moon Into the Woods paper.

I backed the whole thing with cardboard for extra stability and added a burlap string hook for hanging. Can't wait to add this to my fall decor next season!

Thanks for looking!

Laurie

Thank You

Hello, Today I will show you a beautiful Toffifee box that you can give to the host when you go to a party.  I made it using the nice Garden kit "Autumn Hayride".  
There's a lot of stuff in this kit and you can make so many nice things with it!

Here is the box I made for the Toffifee .

I like to take off the lid for the Toffifee box. It looks nicer without it.

There are many nice sayings in this kit and here I have used one of them.

Here you see some of the flowers and there are a lot of nice flowers from Prima in the paper kit.

If  you want to try it yourself, you can find the tutorial here.  It´s a beautiful box to give away now during Christmas time.  I hope you will try one yourself. 

That's all for me this time.  Hope you take care out there and don´t stress too much these days! 

Hugs!
Marianne
