I hope you all had a wonderful weekend,
I know I did!
I was so excited to get my front porch decorated
with hay bails, corn stalks, and pumpkins!!!
Was is Anne of Green Gables who said,
"I'm so glad I live in a world with Octobers"
I second that thought!
So anyway, over at BBTB2, Pam has issued a challenge
to use leaves on our projects, fitting for fall, right?
Here is my project:
I decided to try another shaker card!
I cut out from Designer's Calendar this fun leaf.
The creative feature is "Rounded" so the image is
inside a circle.
I cut it out a bunch of times, twice out of
some pattern paper then a dozen times out of
I actually cut the leaf out of the white cardstock circles
to give me the space I needed to fill with beads.
I ran all the circles through my Xyron Sticker Machine
and adhered them all together.
I cut out of clear acetate two circles from
George to cover the front and back of the shaker.
I used Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to glue the acetate
to the cardstock.
All the paper is from My Mind's Eye.
I used some jute twine and added a couple rhinestones
for extra embellishment.
The mat with the shaker is popped up on some foam tape.
Here are some more pics:
I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 for this week's
Falling Leaves challenge!
I am also entering this in to Little Scrap Pieces.
Thanks for checkin' in!
