Autumn is Here - DIY Pine Cone Fox & Owls -- Plus 3 Autumn Cards for Inktober

I love autumn, and the crafts that surround the autumn season the amazing colors I think are the best!  Check out a couple of cute DIY pine cone animals I made with felt, plus a trio of autumn inspired cards that also have felt on them!!

Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


Let's start with these super cutie pine cone felt animals in a fox and an owl  Learn to make them in this video below!


This fox is super easy to make, a little Kunin felt, scissors, Supertite Glue, and a pine cone and you are set to go!  Some basic shapes of circles and triangles are really all you need to cut out the shapes for this cute fox!


The owl is just as easy to create.  This is mostly circles for the eyes and then layered tear drop wings.  


To hold all the felt to the pine cone I used Supertite All Purpose Universal Glue, sticks like magic!

Since I had made this fun pine cone critters, I thought how cute it would be to make one of the felt faces on a cards.  The first card I made an I created an extra fox face and used it on this autumn card.  This card uses a fun ink technique for Inktober of using a square ink pad and making a fun background.  Check out the video below to see how!


On the next two card I used a little peach flower cut from the felt in the clusters.  For the first card I used the same brown ink but did a swiping method to create the background.


For the last card I used a simple swipe method on the edge to give it the illusion of another layer of color.


Check out the video on how to make these!!



I used the same glue as I did for the felt pine cone for these card to help hold all the various layers together.  One glue can really do it all!



What are you going to create this fall?

New York Travel Junque Journal

Years ago before I started to do traditional scrapbook pages, I would make 12x12 books filled with ticket stubs, pictures, and other mementos from my various travel trips.  For this last trip I took to New York, I did a blend of of traditional scrapbook type pages with craft supplies from Teresa Collins blended with my junque style memory book in a 6x8 travel journal.  Come check it out!

Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


I started off the am amazing travel journal by Teresa Collins.  It was the perfect size to place pictures, and lots of other bits and pieces into of my fun trip.  Check out how I made the first half of the book in this video.


Check out all the pages from the first section which was my time up in the Catskills in upstate NY at the MKNG festival.  All the pcitures, layers of papers, tickets, and even the sequins are held into the book using the Xyron Mega Runner or Xyron 3" Sticker Maker!  Such a huge time saver using these two tools in making this travel book.


I used a ton of different collections from Teresa Collins for the folders, sequins, ephemera, papers and such from the Studio Gold, Wanderlust, and a few others collections.

Check out part 2 of the video to see the secon set of pages!!



Here are the second set of pages from time in NYC!!


Teresa Collins has some beautiful craft supplies that work amazing together - pick any collection and they all work so wonderfully for any project!  Check it out in the video below to see some of those amazing collections!

8 Ideas for DIY Crafty Pumpkin Decor

Something about fall and autumn bring out the fun in wanting to decorate or make pumpkins.  I have made quite a few different varieties over the years, and a new new ones this year too!!  Let's get to some pumpkin inspiration :)




1) Sequin Pumpkins

Let's start with the traditional mini pumpkin you see at the grocery store or at a pumpkin farm.  I took a variety of sequins and glitter and made some cute sparkly pumpkins.  A little glue and you imagination is all it takes to make these pumpkins
super fun to make!


Here is a video to show to to make these fun pumpkins.

2) DIY Rustic Felt Pumpkins



I love the looks of felt on a pumpkin, and these pumpkins will never wilt and are so easy to make!!  You can make them in any color you want, or even multiple colors!!



Start with some felt, a stick, raffia, and some glue.  It really is that easy!  Check out the video to see how these are made!



I also made a teal one for the Teal Pumpkin Project to support families s with food allergies.  Click HERE to see what the Teal Pumpkin Project is all about.


Here is how I made the teal felt pumpkin.



3) Clay Pumpkins



For these cuties I used a air dry clay to mold into the shape of a pumpkin and color the white clay with paint and mists to give each pumpkin a really cool shade or yellow and orange.  Check out the video to see how I made these.


4) Rustic Rope & Flower Pumpkins


Heading back to the little pumpkins you get at the grocery store, this time I picked out some fun multicolored ones and added rope to the grooves and a little floral accent to the top.  Check out the full tutorial HERE.

5) Crystal Spider Glam Pumpkin


I love the look of this spooky pumpkin with the crystal spider and web at the top.  Check out the video to see how easy this is to make!


6) Princess Pumpkins



Not all pumpkins need to be orange or black, this time I had some fun and made them all pretty in pink and teal - or you could even call them unicorn pumpkins!!  Check out the video to see how to make these pretty pumpkins.



7) Painted Dollar Tree Teal Pumpkin


Not all pumpkins need to be orange, white, or black - go with a color!!  This pumpkin is teal for the Teal Pumpkin Project mentioned above, but you can still make a pumpkin any color you want with a little paint!
