Welcome to Fall

Good Mornin' !!!!
It is early and the house is quiet except for the fog horn of my coffee maker. Mark will not hear it as we sleep with a fan. I love this time of morning as I can read my bible, drink my coffee and talk to God. I can watch his beautiful sun rise and thank him for this day. It is a blessed time for me and one I cherish. So after reading and while I sip my coffee I share with you the fall things I have been busy making.

I'll start with the easiest. I made the Big Ghost pumpkin from Pick a Pumpkin SVG Kit. It is made at the size it imports and papers were part of the tremendous blessing I got  from a gal that was a Close to my Heart Demonstrator. I used a copper ink pad on the coffee stem and leaves and hot glued the leaves in place. I used twine from American Craft and Buttons both from Close to my Heart and Buttons Galore. There is nothing really special about Pick a Pumkin SVG Kit and I like that. I can make them however I like. There are SOOO many creative things you can do with this kit. I Love making them and noticed last year the church needs some new ones for the decorations so I have that on my to do list. I might even sneak in an owl or two.

Speaking of owls I will go onto that one next. I used The owl box from Enchanted Autumn SVG Kit to make the owl. The first one I made was alright but I loved the second one I made. It was for my daughter and I used papers from Teresa Collins to make it. I have a couple more ideas for the owls in the back of my mind but that will come later. I used the Flowers from Pick a Pumpkin to put around the eyes of the owl. Then I took a brown maker and swiped lines on the flower just for the look. I have seen this many times in other owls and it always makes me think how cute it is. I also curled the owls ears a bit more and the wings a bit as well.

Last but not least I made the Jack O Lantern from Haunted Forest SVG Kit. It is made the at the size it imports. The accents on the pumpkin were embossed with a large Darcy wood grain folder, then I inked the edges and to bring out the wood grain the sides a bit with a sponge and Really Rust Ink from Stampin Up.  I cut the top of the hat with scissors and warped the brim a bit before I glued the top of the hat on. I inked the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink color which is a stampin up color.
Beautiful color and I just love it. There is a new one very much like it that I love as well, but I don't have it yet. The embellishments for the top of the hat with the exception of one paper cut are all SVG Cuts. There is a brown flourish with wheat and leaves that I like to used that is from the Silhouette store. Whenever I am making Fall things I keep a box that has fall cut out stuff in it so I don't have to stop and go cut another piece. The flower was from that box and is a SVG cut file but I am not sure I can tell you the exact one. My best guess is another favorite kit which is the 3d Mums and Fall Flowers SVG Kit. I used American Craft Sunflower colored card Stock for it then used Riding hood red ink pad and sponge and went to town inking it. I ink it till it looks like the sunflowers that seem to smile at you as you walk by, or maybe that is me smiling at them. The fall colors make me happy so I always seem to be smiling when I see them. The leaves are from Autumn Elements SVG Collecton just made in a much smaller size. The yellow flowery leave thing is from Harvest Hill Farm SVG Collection, again this was in my box so not sure of the size but best guess is the size it imports. The Wheat was from Our Thanksgiving Gathering SVG Kit but I cut the stems a bit and at an angle to add to the hat. There is a  pumpkin leaf peaking out for color from Pick a Pumpkin SVG Kit and it is embossed with Tim Holtz Plaid emboss folder.  The Red Leaf is from Harvest Country Home SVG Collection but I took out the cut outs, to do that you would un-group or release compound path and you can either click where the cut outs are and move and delete them or click on the leaf you want to keep and move it. I used Rafia and wrapped it around my hand a few times then took a smaller piece and tied it together. I hot glued that to the inside of the hat. The button was a wood button from Close to my heart tied with Linen Thread from Stampin up, then hot glued in place. The accent papers for the hat were also from the Close to my Heart, blessing I received. There are a lot of kits and collections listed but I did not purchase them all at once. If your able, then go ahead if you want to purchase all of them but If your like me on a fixed income use what you have. Don't over extend yourself and watch for sales those are the best times to pick up that kit you've had your eye on.
That was pretty much all I have been up to lately. I did purchase the Jack O Lantern SVG Collection and used my stamp making kit from Silhouette to make some stamps but that is for another post.
 My best friend and I were the victims of a huge blessing from a Close to my Heart Demonstrator so you will see a lot of things and references to that company. We were blessed beyond our wildest dreams. We both felt like it was Christmas!!! 4 huge Banana boxes of goodies we divided amongst ourselves and one other gal. To That Gal I want to say thank you so very very much, all of it will be used to bless others with our gift. Thank you.
To All of you I want to say have a wonderful day and encourage you to bless someone else with your gift of crafts. I promise you it will brighten someones day and  don't be surprised that if it is you!  Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Craftin Y'all! Blessings Sharalyn
