"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!

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to finally reveal our November Garden kit today: Autumn Hayride


This kit includes Pion Design's new Fall Collection: Summer Falls into Autumn, coordinated with a few Prima and Kaisercraft papers.  It is also chock full of so many beautiful fall leaves, 49 and Market, Petaloo, and Prima flowers, many embellishments including 2 sets of chipboard, Prima Rust Paint, Chalk Ink, microbeads, burlap fabric and string, and lots of Prima embellishments such as Amber Moon die cuts and stickers, butterflies, and resin leaves.  And that's just the main kit.  Feast your eyes on the goodies available in the Bonus kits:


The Bonus Embellishment kit includes a stamp, clear stickers, Kaisercraft die, Prima Crystals, Leaf ribbon, a 12x12 stencil, some thread letters from Prima just ready for paint, and cute little acorns from 13 Arts.  i just love those acorns!


The Fairy Garden will now be a coordinating paper add on to the main kit, rather than a whole separate kit, but our Fairy Garden design team will still be creating lots of amazing cards and mini projects for great inspiration!

To kick things off, check out this beautiful layout from Marianne:


Hello everyone.  Today I will show you my first try ever to make a layout!  I usually make cards and mini-projects, but sometimes you have to challenge yourself and that is exactly what I have done, so please be nice.  I worked with the new Garden kit Autumn Hayride.   There is so much stuff with this kit, and it is just so wonderful!


I took a sheet of cardstock and splashed it with the beautiful Lindys starbust color green.  And then I colored the edges of the paper with the rusty keys fluid chalk ink from Ingrid Bolme. 


I used the same chalk and painted the pumpkins and then sprayed the leaves.
I think it looks very nice and it matches the flowers so well. 


The flowers are from Prima and they are just so lovely. 


Look at this butterfly, isn´t it just so beautiful?!

The only thing I used from my own stuff is the word "This is me". 
Everything else was included in the main and bonus kits.

I hope to see you next time and don´t forget to visit on  The International Scrapbook Garden.
