My Creative Time - Design Team Call

Hello Everyone,

Today's post is for Emma's My Creative Time Stamps Design Team Call! I discovered Emma when she was on My Pink Stamper's Design Team, and have been a follower ever since! And let me just say, her Gypsy videos are the best! Anyways, onto my project! I'm taking a break from Halloween, and decided to enter this cute cupcake birthday card:

This adorable cupcake was cut at 3 1/2 inches from the Something To Celebrate Cricut Cartridge (this cartridge is definitely my new favourite)! The patterned paper is from Echo Park's Springtime Collection. All solid card stock is from Paper Trey Ink. The cute sentiment is from the Paper Trey Ink Cupcake stamp set, and the ribbon is from Michaels. 

As you can see, adding stitching and chalk to your project can easily put on the finishing touches it sometimes need. I also put some Glossy Accents on the heart of the cupcake to give it a little sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed my project. I will try and squeeze one more Halloween Home Decor Project in before this weekend!

Creative Wishes,

Home Decor: Halloween Wreath

Hello Everyone,

WOW! Has it been a long time since I've last posted; Grade 11 is getting to be a very busy year! I will try my best to post as often as possible! On to todays home decor project. This is a great way to use the remains of paper stacks for any season; in this case, Halloween! Once you get the hang of making the paper rosettes, this project can be whipped up within an hour or two! Although I really loved how this project turned out, I cannot take credit for this idea. If you want to check out a video on how to make a Paper Rosette Wreath, click here. Here is how my wreath turned out:

I used a K&Company paper stack I picked up last year when Michaels had their Halloween items on clearance. All the stamped images are from a Martha Stewart Halloween Stamp Set.

You can cover the insides of the Rosettes with many things. I used patterned paper, buttons, and stamped images, but don't let that limit your imagination!

After your done assembling your paper wreath with hot glue, quickly go over the wreath with a heat tool to get rid of any excess strands of glue!

I hope you enjoyed my simple home decor project. Just to let everyone know, I have some "special" things in store for you guys so check back often... It may even include a giveaway!

Creative Wishes Like Always,
