Fall Wreath

 Today is the start of a new Facebook challenge called "Fabulous Fall" on the KBD Challenge page. You can create  anything you like as long as it is fall themed, so grab your favorite fall files and get creative!

For my "Fabulous Fall" project I made a 12 inch fall wreath using these adorable files.


I used an 11 1/2 inch tag board ring as the base of my wreath. I cut about thirty 3 to 4 inch leaves enlarged from the files used. This was a good way to use up all my fall colored scraps of paper. The squirrels are about 5 inches tall and each acorn is about 1 1/2 inches. I made the 7 by 3 inch title in design space using Pooh font. I used three, 1 inch pieces of 1/4 inch wide ribbon to make a hangar. This was a fun, easy project.

Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to see all the great fall projects you all make!

It MOOSE Be Autumn

KaDoodleBug Designs Sneak Peek

KaDoodleBug Designs is having a sneak peek of new files to be released tomorrow. For my single page layout I used "CK Autumn Moose" and "Fall Borders."

 I combined the two files to make the border at the bottom of the page. This is how I positioned the two files before I welded them together in design space. I made the border about 8 inches long.

I used the pumpkin border to create a 4 inch accent for the 4 x 6 inch photo mat. This mat was then mounted on an additional 5 x 7 mat. The smaller double mat is 3 x 4 1/2 inches.

The extra words for the title are made using "Pooh" from Cricut.

Most of the prints for my layout are from DCWV and the plain cardstock is from Recollections.

Be sure to check out all the new files at

Spidey Peggy Legz

Today is New Release Day at Digital Delights by Louby Lou. My shaker card uses the adorable file, "Spidey  Peggy Legz Set."


All DD Stamps Used: Spidey Peggy Legz Set

Cardstock/ Papers: Image printed on Spectrum Noir cardstock by Crafter's Companion, Glitter cardstock by core'dinations, printed cardstock by Heidi Grace Designs

Markers: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, Wink of Stella, White Gelly Roll pen

Accessories/ Embellishments: acetate, various gems & confetti, foam tape

Special Technique: None

The card base was made using "Web Card Cover" from Bird's Cards. Using  the contour feature in design space I made a solid shape the same size as the web cover. I duplicated this shape, lined the two shapes up side by side and welded them together for the card base. The actual card cover was cut from black glitter cardstock.

The shaker element was made using a 2 1/2 inch by 4 1/2 inch rectangle and a corresponding frame. Thin pieces of foam tape were attached all the way around the back of the frame. Attach the frame to it's back on three sides leaving the top open. Add your confetti, then seal the top. 

Spidey Peggy Legz was printed 4 1/4 inches tall and the sentiment is 1 x 2 inches. They are both attached to the card with foam tape. Two small black gems were added to the title.
