Fall Blog Hop!



If you've arrived to my blog from the Fall Blog Hop...WELCOME! I'm the last stop on the hop! You should've arrived here from Tracy's wonderful blog...Scrappin' in the woods with a Bug!

For my Fall project, I came up with a really easy idea for some Fall decor...I made my own decorative blocks! (Click on the pictures to view them larger.)





Materials Used:
Cricut Cartridges - Sweet Tooth Boxes, Sophisticated and Gypsy Wanderings
Paper - Tim Holtz
Hambly Grid Overlay

The blocks are cut from the Sweet Tooth cartridge using the CubeBox at 10.5" (just the box part, not the top). I used my Gypsy to add the letters before I cut it. The letters are from the Sophisticated cartridge, the upper case font. I stretched them a little to fill the space (width was 2.59" and height was 2.54"). (Tip...do a test cut first...the boxes are turned upside down when finished so you want the letters facing the right direction!)

The leaves are cut from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge and attached with foam dots for dimension.

The Hambly overlay was cut by hand and applied to the inside of the letters.

It was so simple to put together!

Thank you for stopping by...and, I hope you've enjoyed our Fall Blog Hop! If you'd like to start again at the beginning...please go HERE to Kristen's My Fantabulous Life Blog!

I love how you and Scrapalette had the same idea, yet they both turned out so different and fabulous. From the picture, I would have guessed they were real wood blocks.
