Welcome to Small Bits of Paper and the Fantabulous Cricut Harvest Blessings Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop!
It's Fall and everyone at Fantabulous Cricut has decided to create projects to give thanks for our Harvest Blessings! Each Design Team member will be featuring an original Fall project that includes Brown, Orange and Red – along with at least one Cricut cut.
If you've come from visiting Jewels at My Beautiful, Crazy...Scrappy Life, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT members' blogs AND there is a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Harvest Blessings" project!
A few weeks ago, I came across a rosette pumpkin created by Audrey Pettit at The Kraft Journal. (If you are interested in making one of these pumpkins, you will also find the instructions on Audrey's blog HERE.) As soon as I saw it, I knew that I wanted to make one as well. I was also fortunate enough to purchase the cardstock on sale - it takes 8 pieces of 12x12 orange for the base of the pumpkin alone - so was able to make this for under $3!! That price, however, does not take into account the value of my time! If found this project to be rather time-consuming, but did enjoy putting it together.
To adorn my pumpkin, I used Speaking of Fall for the leaves and Mini Monograms for the little scalloped circles between the layers and at the top of my pumpkin (although you can't see those). I hand cut a little banner and stamped it with "Give Thanks", a sentiment from the Happy Fall set from My Craft Spot. I added a button, as well as some baker's twine and chocolate crinkle ribbon, also from My Craft Spot. I finished things off with some very thin strips of red cardstock which I curled and adhered behind the other embellishments.
