Happy Harvest + GIVEAWAY!!!

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Happy Harvest!!! Well I know it's not Harvest time as it's Winter here in Australia. However there are still plenty of Autumn leaves around and today is beautiful and warm with a clear blue sky and sunshine... not complaining about the weather at all! Happy Harvest just happens to be the name of the newly released Imaginisce collection and I have some projects to share that I created for the release party on the Imaginisce  blog this week.


I have had a pile of hessian (burlap) in my stash for a couple of months now and when I saw the colours of the paper I knew it would match beautifully with the fabric. So, lots of sketched designs in my little notebook and I finally came up with an Autumn Wreath idea. I've even incorporated some precious twigs from my dearly departed plum tree with keeled over during Summer.


The Autumn leaves were created using my Cricut and the 'Straight From the Nest' cartridge which is fast becoming one of my favourites. I also covered the i-top brads in the hessian to add a little feature.



As much as I love the look of the hessian on the wreath, it has left the biggest mess in my craft area as it drops fluff everywhere and no matter how careful I was it still left its mark on my clothes, in my hair, on the floor, all over the desk and my poor Cricut has had to have a good old vaccuum.


The good old plum tree was very giving as it has graced my layout page as well. I couldn't resist adding some more twigs to the page and I went completely overboard with the leaves but was trying to give the impression that my kids were sitting in a big pile of leaves on the page too!





I've used some of the My Little Shoebox alpha stickers as they just happened to have the perfect colours of brown and teal to match with the Imginisce Happy Harvest collection. And for those of you who know me very well... yes you can see glimmermist. LOL! I never, ever use glimmermist but after recieving a few bottles for gifts I figured I'd better do the right thing and have a go. And the best part... I didn't make a mess like I thought I would, might just have to give it another go - sometime! :)
