Autumn Treats

Hi!  This week for Sweet Sassy Diva we are designing Autumn projects! I just got my new Art Philosophy cartridge and just had to use it! Every cut on my project is from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I LOVE Autumn! Its by far my favorite season! I love seeing all the colors change and the cool crisp mornings! I decided to make a pillow box!

Here it is:
I used my GYPSY to see my sizes of the pillow box and leaves!
Placed my papers and cut them accordingly!
I assembled the pillow box and added some Twine from the Twinery and my leaves!
I added an acorn and some pearl pen! 

I hope you enjoyed the pillow box! They are great to fill with a treat for family and friends! 
Make sure and come back each day for more Autumn inspiration from the Sweet Sassy Design Team!

Remembering 9/11

Hello! This week for SweetSassyDiva we are honoring the HEROES of 9/11. That day has changed our country and will always be remembered. I remember exactly where I was the day I saw the Twin Towers on TV. It was a sad day for so many. I have many family members that have served or are currently serving in various branches of the military and I choose to support them all. I am very patriotic and thought that I would love to make a patriotic wreath! I was inspired by Pink Cricut's Halloween wreath. Click here if you would like to see it (She has an awesome video tutorial on it!)

Here is my wreath:

I cut my paper into various strips and scored them on my score board every .5 inches.  I used these to make the rosettes. Be careful of HOT glue!! It can make for very sore fingers.
I hot glued my rosettes to my cardboard circle. I have them layered for more dimension!
I added stars from the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge cut in various sizes.
I added red and blue buttons on the stars. Some of the buttons have the airmail twine in them.

I love how my wreath turned out and can't wait to make another one! Make sure you come back and check out more of the SweetSassyDiva Designers this week for more inspiration!

Grandparents Day

Hello again!  This week the SweetSassyDiva Design team has created projects in honor of Grandparents day! I decided to make a card that resembled a quilt for my Grandma Rose! She makes the most amazing quilts I have ever seen. I want to have everyone that she makes but understand I have to share with the rest of my family!........sigh........ well on to my card!

I cut nine 1.5 inch squares from the Mango Frost DCWV stack and 4.75 inch square of matching orange pattern paper.

I adhered the squares to the yellow pattern paper in a simple quilt pattern.

I then added the card front to a pink square cut at 5 inches.

Here is the card base for the easel card. It measures 5inches by 10 inches. I score it at 5 inches and 7.5 inches.
I added the yellow pattern paper to the card base and added a sentiment from Pink By Design. The Butterflies are from Kate's ABC's. Also added some white faux stitching!
Here is a side view of the card!

I hope you like my card! Don't forget to check back this week and see what the rest of the Design team has created for more inspiration!
