ScrapbookPal.Com BLOG HOP!!

Welcome to the ScrapbookPal.com Blog Hop!  If this is your first stop, please be sure to click HERE to head over to the ScrapbookPal Blog to begin!

For my project, I used the Freshly Picked Cricut Cartridge to make this 'mailable'  frame!  To make the frame:  With Frame option on, choose the Pumpkin key and adjust size to 6", cut the frame in brown cardstock.  Cut a piece of orange cardstock to 6 1/2" x 6".  Attach to the back of the brown frame, leaving the right side around the frame open.  To cut the pumpkin, use the Layers option at 2 3/4" cut once in orange and then again with the Shift Layers option on in green (for the leaf).  The wording is cut with the Word option on at 1" cut once in orange and then again with the Shift Word option on in a lighter brown.  Using the same color as the back of the frame, cut a piece of cardstock to 5 1/4" x 2 3/4".  Score at 1/2", 1 1/2", 2 1/2", and 4 1/4".  Place adhesive on the two 1/2" ends and attach to frame (as shown).  Using circle punch, punch a half circle where the photo will slide in and out.  Round top two corners of frame with a 1/2" corner punch.  Use Fruit Punch and Lime Green Stickles to decorate the pumpkin and wording and attach to the front of the frame as shown in the photo.  Add in stitching with the white gel pen and embellish with ribbon and a button!







Supplies:
Cardstock:  Textured (Momenta)
Die Cutting:  Cricut Freshly Picked Cartridge (Provo Craft)
Stickles:  Fruit Punch and Lime Green (Ranger)
Ribbon:  DCWV and Misc Twine
Button:  Making Memories

Hey Jamie, You commented on my bouquet of flowers. Yes I made them of paper. I used my cricut and flowers from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I used a tutorial I saw on Christina's blog
Creations with Christina. She based her's on Tim's Holtz's grunge flowers. She does beautiful work. The first flowers weren't very good. But I made some changes and practice makes perfect. Thanks for stoppin by!
