Heller wonderful people!
Debbie with Bugjuiced here again for my monthly project and tip of the day! I am in the fall mood now which you know how it is fall has gotten shorter and shorter. The leaves here start to turn and before you know it they have fallen off.
I love the colors that fall creates. It makes me all warm and fuzzy. I love sweatshirt weather when it is a bit nippy at night but still warm enough to not be freezing. I love the air and how it smells in the fall just like after a good rain. And of course I LOVE HOT CHOCOLATE especially Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate that is some good stuff right there.
Ok on to the crafting! I made this cute little candy box using the SVG files from SVGcuts Acorn Autumn Kit. Love the way their files cut and always turn out. I used Emma's set "Piles of Smiles" for both of my sentiments and the die for the leaves. WOWSER these leaves are super cute. I like the way she added the stitching around them they are super cute! I used multiple colors of paper for the leaves. And you guessed it Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink!! ha ha I know do I own any other color? (said in a Jim Carey voice)
I did an "Impressionistic" yeah its a word....ink job on the stalks since I used pattern paper to just give them a little something something.
TIP OF THE DAY!!
If you all follow along with my blog you probably seen my Timeless Twine post and
my zombies curlie hair. Well Here is how to accomplish that:
I put in a bowl some "Scotch" Quick Dry Adhesive...now i am sure you could use
other kinds this happens to be what I had on hand and I like that it dries quick hence the name
(See the marshmellows in the background....doesn't everyone have them in their scrap rooms? Can I
get a WOOT WOOT for marshmallows! PS my dogs like them its a treat for them.
Ok back to the elixir...I mean the glue stuff. Just pour some glue in the bowl (hey I didn't say it
was rocket science) and pour some water into the bowl and mix up. Throw your twine
in the bowl to get all loved by the glue. I pull it out and kinda "wring it out" a bit cause it will
be really wet.
Wrap it around something metal seems to work the best cause it doesn't
stick. I have a metal skewer I believe I got at Bed Bath & Beyond (don't
they have everything there!) I like this too because it makes my curls so nice and small.
Let it dry and just slide off, and then you will get these results!

Next time I will try to do a video. I have a technique I will share next month
using Epson Salts!
Thanks for stopping by!
