Shabby Chic Spool

Wow! Can't believe October is almost over! Halloween is just around the corner and it's been snowing here in Denver for the past two days! Yes, I said snow! Snow days always are the best days to stay inside and scrap!!!

For this months I Am Roses design team project I created an altered Shabby Chic Spool.
I started out creating a large spool from two small ribbon spools by just hot gluing the centers together after removing an end from both spools.  I decorated the spool with Webster's Pages pattern paper and some trim along with various trims and embellishments from my stash.  I  used a beautiful "new" crotchet spray from I Am Roses along with small roses, small flat flowers and skeleton leaves to complete my Shabby Chic Spool. To add a little sparkle to my project, I sprayed it with Lindy Stamp Gang's Scintillating Sliver. I love how it added just the right amount of sparkle to my Shabby Spool.

Be sure to stop by I Am Roses and check out the flowers I used on my project along with all the other amazing flowers they have to offer.

I Am Roses flowers used:
Crochet Spray: SPC1 - 428
Skeleton Leaves Natural: K3-805 / Z
Tiny Pink Flat Flowers: BP / T2 - 3
Mini White Paper Flowers: R2 - 15
Small Whit Crochet Flowers: ZJC1 - 151

Adorable You ~ Pumpkin Sophie Card

Hello there Crafty Friends!

Happy Fall!!!

Today I thought I'd share a fun fall card with you that I created using Pumpkin Sophie.

Pumpkin Sophie has a special place in my heart. She reminds me of my daughter's first Halloween 11 yrs. ago. My daughter had the same outfit on that Sophie is wearing! Yes, she was our little pumpkin!!!

I decided to create a process video sharing how I colored Pumpkin Sophie using color pencils and markers. (I used my Spectrum Noir Markers)

I used various shades of orange & green color pencils blending with odorless mineral oil along with flesh colored Spectrum Noir markers which I share the codes for in my video.

The 3 pattern papers I used are from: Lily Bee:Persnickety, MME: School Daze, & Simple Stories: Summer Fresh.

Don't forget to check out the Sweetnothingsstampco shop were you can find Pumpkin Sophie along with many other cute digi images.

Enjoy the video and thanks for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping!

"A Haunting We Will Go" Blog Hop

Welcome! to the I Am Roses "A Haunting We Will Go" Blog Hop.
If you are hopping along that means you just arrived here from Leanne's blog also know as Luvleescrappin.
Thanks for joining our October Blog Hop!

For this blog hop I created a Home Decor Halloween center piece. 

"Witch Parking, Violators will be TOAD!"

I wanted to create something fun, colorful and whimsical to place on my dining room table. I found most of my materials at my local Target shopping center in the dollar bins. Items purchased at target include: 3 small witches brooms and a small vertical tin pail. 
This project was super easy to create. To start, I placed a piece of foam inside the tin pail and stuck my 3 brooms into place. I added twine around the bottoms of each broom along with bead sprays and of course I Am Roses flowers. I used a variety of flowers from I Am Roses and I love how beautiful they all look placed on the brooms. I sprayed all my I Am Roses flowers with Scintillating Silver from I love how sparkly they look! I also sprayed one white R40 I am Roses flower green by using Luscious Lime from

I Am Roses Flowers used include:
R40: White Roses & T30: Semi Open Rose Buds

GB5: Mixed Color Gardenia Paper Flowers

R40: Pink Roses & T30: Semi Open Rose Buds 

I also created the bottom half of a witch that included her two legs and the trim of her dress.  My thought behind the witch legs was that the witch was coming to park her broom and she was flying way to fast and landed in the parking zone! LOL! I just love how fun and whimsical adding this element to my center piece made it look.

On the dress I used S10: sm purple flowers 2 tone.

Here is a closer look at the sign on my center piece.
Items used to create this include: Hocus Pocus Sophie digi image from, die cut shape,front and toad were created using my Cricut Gypsy. Small white tag was punched from a punch and the journaling was printed from my computer.
