Fall Leaf Centerpiece - perfect for Thanksgiving



Hello crafty friends,

This month it seems I'm combining my love of papercrafting with home decor.  It must be all the lovely fall leaf colors driving my projects these days.  I wanted to create something to put on my Thanksgiving table and once I had the image in mind it was not difficult to carry it out.  I have written step by step directions (with pictures) on the Rinea blog.  If you have the time I sure hope you will check it out.



Layered stamping with non-layering stamps - Teacher Appreciation cards

Hello crafty friends,

Teachers are so important - and not JUST because my own sister and brother-in-law are teachers. :)
It takes a lot of patience to do this work and I bet you are likely to know a teacher that deserves some special recognition.  I created these four cards with the newest Dare 2B Artzzy stamp set called Best Teacher and the coordinating dies.



Make your own Halloween Decor

Hello crafty friends,
If you love Halloween decor, I've got just the project for you. I've created a video for you so you can see how easy this really is.  With some die cut ghosts, Rinea foiled paper, a vase or small pot and tulle is all there is to this.  I'm sharing this project on the Rinea blog as well as YouTube channel.
Here are a few close-up shots of the ghosts on their stalks.
The ghosts were die cut using images from Cricut Design Space and Cricut Explore machine out of white cardstock.  If you have dies for ghosts or other Halloween type shapes, you can certainly substitute those.
The rest of the project (except for the vase and tulle) is all Rinea foiled paper.  I used the 3D Hyacinth Die set to create the stalks (not sure what else to call them) that the ghosts are attached to.
Using a vase I had laying around the house - I wrapped Ebony/Gold glossy foiled paper (6" x 12") and taped it to the vase.  You could use any similar container you have.  I put some black tulle in the vase to help position the stalks like a floral arrangement.  the spiders are some extra props I used for the photo and not truly a part of the project.
