Autumn Dangles

On the CMB we had a swap for **FALL** dangles..(CHARMS). I had my own twist to what **FALL** is to me. I'm not into Halloween at wasn't do that! I didn't want just a leaf here is my take on **FALL**.  I used Tim Holtz swivel clasps, beads, charms from the Charm Barn, and ribbon. My theme would be considered FALL FAVS....pumpkins, apples, FOOTBALL, school starting,Family, friends  and pretty colors of Autumn changing colors. I think my dangle fits the bill!!! I hope you do as well.

Then we had to place our dangles on a handmade tag. I used my sizzix alterations die by Tim Holtz to make the tags from chipboard. Then I ran them thru my cuttlebug in the Woodgrain embossing folder to represent a tree. I then cut and embossed pumpkins in different colors and patterns. Add gingham ribbon...that speaks Fall to me...a Fall colored beaded stick pin with two tiny tags that say..**FALL** and **Friends** on them.   luv them!!!!

leave some love

The Letter **M**

In our Maggie swap...this month we had to alter a wooden/chipboard letter. My sis, Janice wanted the letter **M**. So that is what I did. She asked for it to be in greens/browns/earthtones. I think I did pretty good on that. WOn't know for sure until she has But it was a fun time creating this letter for her.

I used the picnic maggie as she is sitting. SO it looks like she is sitting on the ribbon here...but I so luv it. I made the spray of flowers behind her.~~~A NEWFOUND LOVE!!!!!

I'm just happy it's done and I'm proud of my creation.




Maggie Banner

In our monthly Magnolia Swap on the Cricut Message Board, the theme was to make a banner or use a banner in some way for our sister. I made a banner for Kathleen. It was done in purples....her fav color...not so much mine!!! It turned out so stinkin' cute...luv'd it. I used three different Maggies and colored them with my copics.

The banner said **CREATE** when finished.

I had hosted a swap on the Cricut Message Board for handmade floral sprays like the ones you see from Prima....they are soo fun to create and EASY! I have totally enjoyed the concept of these and will be making more and using endless ideas on attachments. Here these are made with flowers and beads...but just think of the possibilities there are for them?!

I used green 26" floral wire and many different beads in the same color family. The flowers are cherry blossoms from  in a light to dark theme. I love my creation!

Hope you enjoy
