Hello Everyone!!! I'm back, I'm back after a computer malfunction, a computer up-grade and a blog redesign, I'm back! I hope you'll bare with me for a bit... I went from a 6 year old computer, with it's original operating system and programs to brand new... and needless to say, I'm having to re-learn how to do things on my new computer, that I could do with my eyes closed on my old computer. I know they say change is good, but... seriously... Why did they take away iPhoto AND not include a watermark function or half the photo editing tools in the new Photos program? Sigh... moving on! Lol

Today I'm sharing an alternate project that I made with the September 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit. Did you get this one? I really hope you did, as it features Thanksgiving and Halloween stamps and is absolutely adorable! I really wanted to make the designed projects, and maybe if I was in a different stage in life, I might of... but reality is, I'll need way more then 8 treats for my son's class, I don't work, so I don't have any co-workers... family doesn't life in town... and, well, you get the idea. So, as I was perusing the supplies, I was constantly drawn to the "grass" sheets and all I could think of was a wreath. I must admit my finished project turned out differently then I originally imagined, but I still like it.

Now, I must apologize... I usually try to stay within the parameters of the kit and it's supplies, but I just couldn't let this idea rest. So, if you want to create this project, along with the kit, you'll need a styrofoam wreath (which I found at the dollar store, SCORE!), pins, 1 elastic band, and Cherry Cobbler, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Ink.

All the stamping was done on the cardstock included in the kit. I stamped the leafs and acorns on the treat bases and fussy cut them out. I just love the colours.

Now, I know what you're going to say... How did I make it? well... Stay tuned! I took step by step photos!!! I did!!! I just need to edit them and organize them into a tutorial for you... Arn't I nice to give you time to get your extra supplies ;) Lol

***UPDATED*** Check out the tutorial HERE!

Happy creating everyone!

  3. Martha - this so amazingly well done. Way to think outside the box. That never even would have occurred to me. I love the way it wraps straight around the wreath and then all the curls end up on the outside edge. Just incredible!
