Autumn Falling Leaves Clock

Hello again my crafty friends.
Fall is in the air in Apple Valley :)
It's cool in the early morning and evening.but still gets warm during the day.
I love the Fall and all the beautiful changing autumn leaves. It's such a pretty site to see.

As you may know, I LOVE clocks and have many in my house.
Today I would like to share this beautiful Fall leaves clock that I made for the Autumn Challenge over at SVGCUTS.com.  Click on the link to see all the entries on Facebook. 

 It's all 
made from card stock and is a working clock.

I have four layers of leaves. I glued some and others I pop dotted to
give it depth. I use Tim Holtz distressing inks on all the leaves.

This is the card from the kit.

I used to the leaves in Mary's "Leaves Are Falling svg kit" below.

Get this adorable kit by clicking on the link below.

I used the clock face from Masion De Madelin kit.

I simply love my Fall leaves clock. Really fun to make and would be a 
great gift for someone special on your list. 
Anyone can learn to make this lovely clock and many wonderful creations.
 I Love my Sizzix Eclips cutting machine. It's opened up a Whole New World in crafting.

Haunted Forest Bewitched Cabin

Hi my crafty friends!
It's that time of year again, to begin decorating for Fall and Halloween. It's been in the
100's here, but the early mornings are nice and cool.

Everyone needs to make a Haunted house, right? Well, I'm not really into scary things, but I
just couldn't resist this darling Haunted Forest cabin from svgcuts.
Mary created a marvelous house with the curved roof and detailed decor.

 I also used her Free
witch on the broom

This is the inside with plenty of room for tea lights or a gift.

Everybody knows who these guys are, right? Well my friend came over
and she just had to add these little guys. Not sure where she got them from but they look so cool standing on the side of the house.

This is Mary's Haunted Forest Bewitched Cabin.
I Love her papers and chalking!

This is the Whole Spooky kit!
You can get this kit by clicking the link below.

This house was made by my daughter Jessica, when she and my
granddaughter came down to visit. She said she wasn't a crafter,
but I think she did a Fantastic job making the Haunted house. Excuse
the photo for being so dark, The sun wasn't up when they left at
3 am.
Yep, that's not a type o!!!
She didn't want to leave until she finished it. Whew! What a long
long long day, or should I say days.
She had so much fun and wants to come down for more fun projects.
I think she got the fever :)

This was made by my granddaughter, Can you tell it was 3 am :)
Nicole loves to craft and draw. I'll have to ask her
for some of her drawings. She had so much fun making this Gerber flower and
vase arrangement and did a Fantastic job.
Her favorite color is Yellow and this will go perfect in her room.
She was soooo tired when they left. They had a couple hour drive home also.
I told them next time they will have to stay for a week :)

This is the kit that the Gerber flowers and vase were from.


Click on the link above to get this whole kit.
Beautiful collection!

That's it my friends for another day.
I hope that I've inspired you to start crafting.
I love my Sizzix Eclips machine!!
Have a great week my friends.

Gorgeous Coin Purse Cards

Hello my friends!
It's beginning to feel like Fall in the early morning, even though my thermometer reaches nearly 100.
I've changed my wreath on my door to Fall flowers and put flowers and  scarecrows under each window sill. And, brought out my Large Scarecrow for the front step. 
I think by next month it will be cooler :)

Today I would like to share these adorable adorable coin purse cards.
 I simply Love them!

These delightful purses are a FREE cutting file over at Under A Cherry Tree site
They are a surprise Freebie from Lettering Delights.
A BIG Thank you for a Fabulous creation!

Click below to grab this awesome file.

Aren't these adorable!!!!

Love this floral paper!

I used gold patterned paper for the clasp and I glue three together to make it sturdy. 

These purses are sooooo easy to make. One cut for the base and two cuts for the clasp. And
if you want to put a liner, but it's not really necessary.
Can you see these all deck out in Christmas papers....wow! 

This is one of my favorites!
Sooo cute!

Each purse is unique and darling. I also sized a smaller white silhouette for the
inside. The card opens from the top of each purse. This one measures approximately 7" x 5.5".
You can decorate them with pearls, flowers or just plain papers.
They look beautiful and are so easy and quick to make.

Great card for someone that Loves purses and shopping or someone special on your list.

That's it my friends for another day!
I hope that I've inspired you!!!
Keep your eye open for my Haunted Halloween cabin. 
See what my daughter and granddaughter created!!!!!
Gorgeous creations!!! 

Have a great week!
