Fall Decorating with Monograms

When the new Holiday Expressions catalog first came out, I was extremely happy to see that we now carry a variety of Chipboard Monograms. Monograms are one of the most popular home decor items on Pinterest and, today, I am going to give you a few tips for creating this beautiful Fall Monogram for your home. You can find the compete list of supplies I used on my project at the very bottom of this post.

To create this “Thankful” Fall Monogram, I began by adhering the Woodgrain paper to my Chipboard “T” using a tape runner. If you choose to use liquid adhesive, make sure to apply full coverage to the chipboard or you will be able to see the lines of glue through the paper.  You can choose from any of the Grateful Heart papers for your background. I picked this color combination to match the decor in my craftroom. 

 

Once I had chosen my background pattern, I opened up Cricut Design Space™ and created the Sunflower, Leaves, and “Thankful” using images from of our Cricut Collections.  I love the added texture and design that the paper patterns give to my flower. If you would like to recreate this Sunflower, you can follow the Chocolate Sunflower tutorial I created last November.

After cutting out and assembling my images, I decided that I needed to add a few of the Complements to my design.  I really like the look of those Copper Veined Leaves and the Copper Butterfly, so I chose to add them along with the Pomegranate Heart.

I tied the whole design together by heat embossing the Scrolling with Copper Tinsel Embossing Powder and adding a few Cork Shapes. How easy is that?

There are so many wonderful things you can create with these Chipboard Monograms! (I am using a few for Christmas gifts that I will be sharing with you later.)  This Fall Monogram can stand alone on it’s own or be added to a frame, like I did, or even to the center of a fall wreath.  Our Monogram Chipboard Letters are available for a limited time, while supplies last, so make sure you grab a few for your own crafting creations.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thanksgiving Pilgrim Decorations

As many of you know, I can’t ever use a product to create something as it was intended so, when I first saw the Christmas Elves in the Season of Joy Cricut™ Collection, I just had to make this adorable Pilgrim Couple to add to my Thanksgiving Decor. I am positive that many of you reading this post would love to be able recreate this couple. At the very bottom of this post, you will find a list of the products I used as well as a way that you can get the Design Space™ file FREE during the month of November.

If you look at the Shape Index, you will see that the original images I used from Season of Joy Digital Cricut™ Collection were intended for some Christmas Elves. As cute as these elves are, I am not ready to start creating for Christmas so, I decided to use products from our Grateful Heart collection and make myself two delightful Pilgrims.

 

 


I enjoy adding little details to my projects. I added stitching on the clothing and “lace” on the apron using our Decorative Borders Thin Cuts. I also used some Burlap Ribbon to for some bows, buttons, and embellishments. Some final touches were added using the Grateful Heart Complements, Cork Shapes, and a Chrysanthemum from our Flower Market Collection.

 

 


♥ Aren’t they just the cutest? ♥ I am sure this Pilgrim Couple would look delightful as decorations on your Thanksgiving table or filled with treats and given to your Thanksgiving guests. If you would like to create this couple, I am giving away the Design Space™ file for FREE with any order of $30 or more (before tax & shipping) from my website during the month of November.

You will need to own the Season of Joy Digital Cricut™ Collection as well as the Flower Market Cricut™ Collection to cut out the images for the Pilgrim Couple. If you haven’t had a chance to view any of our Cricut™ Collections, you can view all of the shape indexes here. If you are like me, you will want to see what images are included in each collection before purchasing them.

I can’t wait to see what you create for your Thanksgiving table!
