Burlap Harvest Rag Wreath

I finally finished this burlap wreath...just in time for Thanksgiving! It was a lot of fun to make (although quite messy with burlap) and pretty easy too.

The banner was a last minute addition which I cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. It was based on artwork from the 2012 Autumn/Winter Idea Book (love keeping old copies for inspiration).

The pieces were cut at 4", letters at 2" and argyle pieces at 1 1/4". It's hard to tell in the photo but I sponged each banner piece with Brown Bag Ink and then used re-inker and my spray pen for some added texture. I finished off each piece with some Bronze Glitter Glue and Hemp.

The white burlap roses were so easy. You can search You Tube for lots of different instructions and techniques. I added a CTMH pearl to the center of each for some added bling...on my daughter's recommendation! The roses were hot glued to the wreath. I was a little worried they wouldn't stay but a very windy day tested it and they stayed perfectly!

 Thanks for looking and having a fantastic Monday!

Artbooking Scrapbook Layouts

Yes, it's been awhile since I've posted my scrapbook layouts. Trust me when I tell you it's not for lack of creating -- I've been working very diligently on new projects and having a lot of fun doing it!

All of the layout designs were inspired by the Make It From Your Heart books and Idea Book examples with slight modifications of course.

Each layout features at least one element cut from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge! Love how easy it was to create something beautiful without a lot of fuss!

 Do you have a favorite? I'd love to know in the comments.
