I am go glad to be in the SUDSOL Blog Hop. Sudsol is like having a best friend...well many best friends at all.time, it is full of resources and keeps me informed. I can honestly tell you I check my SUDSOL email everyday!!! I was involved in the SUDSOL blog hop last time too, I was happy to be involved again!! For my projects I wanted to share an alternate project to the Frightful Wreath Simply Created and a cute fall Curvy Keepsakes box.
I am one of those people who really LOVE Halloween. As luck would have it, I actually just got a new wreath for the door this year. So I changed the Frightful wreath around to fit my needs!! I made 2 projects, one home decor, and a scrapbook page, I hope you like them.
Here's the wreath as intended per the kit.
Here is my home decor:
I made this to go on our mantle. I wrapped the black tinsel around the wreath and cut the webbing doew to a smaller size. I also cut the rosette down to fit the smaller webbing. So as far as that, it was pretty much the same as the original idea, just cut to a smaller size. I also added some orange mini lights!!
I spray painted a wooden dowel black and inserted it into the foam wreath. For the base the I covered a canning jar with Motley Monster paper. I applied Modge-Podge to the Motley Monster Designer Series Paper and then wrapped it around the jar. On the top of the jar, I used the Witches Brew
washi tape that's on clearance, I thought this balanced it out great!!
This is what it looks like with the light off.
For my second project using the remainder of the Frightful Wreath Simply created kit, I made a Halloween scrapbook page.
Can you GUESS what we are for Halloween??? (answer at bottom)
I used the "cut off" areas of the webb on both pages!! The sparkle on this webbing is just so stinking cute!! I LOVE this page.
I used the Gorgeous Grunge to add a little splash of color. I used the stamp set from the Sept 2014 Paper Pumpkin for the sentiment, I also used this on the home decor. The spider coming off the webb is from the Bite Me Photopolyner set.
For the paper I used Motley Monster Designer Series, and Back to Black Designer Series paper. I used the Banner Framelits to make the banner edges. The black button is from the Neutral buttons, and I used Tangerine Tango baker's twine.
ANSWER: Our family was the black-eyed peas!!! how fun is that??
Here is my Fall Curvy Keepsake box:
I thought this turned out so cute. I am gonna use these for my place setting at my Thanksgiving table.
The base is Pumpkin Pie and stamped with Tangerine Tango with Work of Art stamp. For the tag I stamped the sentiment from Mingle all the Way in Soft Suede, and I stamped it again in Tangerine Tango. I then fussy cut the words 'stuffed' and adhered on top, for me after trail and error, this worked well for me to get that word to pop. On that stamp, the words are tight, so to use the marker...well it was just messy too many times!! I used the Decorative Label Punch to punch it out, it really made it look dressy!!
The leaf is cut using the Autumn Accents die, with the Champagne Glimmer paper!! For the bow, I used Misty Meadow Ribbon and tried to make it look like a leaf!!
Thank you for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the hop!!!
