The holidays are HERE....and it's not always about cards!

So summer is over!!! Wah!!!! But at least I love in southern Cali and we are still blessed with some hot sunny weather! We can't deny though the holidays are finally here!! Halloween stuff is already popping up in the store, soon it will be Christmas and you know Thanksgiving will be in that mix! Well to start it off I decided to make a Fall wreath. I love wreaths and think they are so versatile and can be used in any occasion or holiday!! 

So I know when people hear Stampin' Up they think cards! But it's not and this project shows your products, stamps, framelits can do so much more than make a gorgeous card! I know I know you want to see the wreath already! it is! 


Well there you have it! My fall wreath! I'm pretty excited about it. So here are the details on how I did it:

White Tulle
Gold tulle
Styrofoam wreath
Banner framlits 
Champagne Glitter paper
Little Letters Thinlits
Wood emboss folder
Gold soirée DSP
Spiral flower big die
Crumb Cake Cardstock
Tangelo Twist Cardstock
Tangelo Twist ink
kinda Eclectic Stamp Set
Bakers Twine
2 Inch circle punch
Whisper White Cardstock

I cut the tulle and just kept tying it around until it was completely covered. I made the banner and embossed it with the wood folder. I wanted the letter to stand out so I used champagne glitter paper for them. I really like how it ties with the gold tulle. I used the starburst stamp behind the letters on the whisper white circle. I love the look. 

We'll I hope you enjoyed my wreath and it inspires you to make something out of the box. Happy Carfting all!!! 



  1. This is the coolest wreath!! I love it!! PINNED!! :)

  2. How is the tulle tied of so it fluffs out?

    1. Hi Francine, it's just wrapped around once the wreath and double knotted on the outside. The ends stick so it looks fluffy. :)
