Graphic 45 & Blue Fern Studios

In my dinning room hangs framed layouts created for each of my grandchildren and one for each of their parents.  This is my last layout I just finished for the Blue Fern Studios monthly challenge.

Blue Fern Studios chipboard is perfect with Graphic 45.  Both have a delicate quality and both can be cut and altered.

WorldWin Translucent Vellum

I used vellum as a circle accent.  One I layered with a tag.
Another set of circles I sewed around the edges.
One the third one I stamp a flourish.
It's been awhile since I used vellum and I would guess I'll be using more soon.

Carved Pumpkin
I told you I would post another of my carved pumpkins last Friday.  We have been fighting a stomach virus and I helped take care of my grandgirls and Monday morning I was at the hospital with my son who dehydrated from it.  So I've been a little busy.  BUT ... here it is.
Lessons from a Pumpkin
  1. Only create happy Jack-o'-lanterns.
  2. When you create a detailed pumpkin buy a large pumpkin.
  3. Watch your pattern closely and don't punch holes all the way around.
  4. Figure out a way to keep from having your design collapse in just two day.
  5. Do not stay up until 2 in the morning to carve a pumpkin.
I would like to try a detailed pumpkin next year, but I'm going to be learning more about how to successful to this.
