Oh My! The House Smells Like Fall

Oh my goodness the house smells wonderful, it smell of fresh apples and cinnamon with just a touch of nutmeg, in a word it smells like Fall. I spent the weekend peeling coring and chopping an assortment of apples from our local farm stand, it had to be a 50lb. box. Applebutter is always a favorite at our house so when I make it I make a lot, I ended up with about 25 jars and about half a dozen for gift giving. I used my Pazzles Inspiration for the tag and top piece and they came out so cute. I used the new Pentool to write applebutter with a single stroke font and then cut the tag and stamped with an apple stamp from stampin-up.

Halloween Time

Another great decoration inspired by Pinterest. First I cut out a template of the letters on my  Pazzles Inspiration and traced it on thin wood (well my neighbor did) and he cut it out for me. I didn't have any chipboard but I'm sure the inspiration can handle it if you wanted to go that rout, mines going outside so I went with wood. Then I painted all the letters black added some purple and green paint here and there. Then I cut the letters out again on my Inspiration out of DCWV Halloween paper and cut some of them in half and some in thirds, inked the edges and glued them on in different places. I then took a run to Michaels and the dollar store while everything dried for ribbon and little Halloween things to decorate with. I attached the letters together with ribbon and a staple gun, if you use chipboard you will need to attach the ribbon another way.

It looks so cute on my front door. Thanks to Blaine for cutting the letters and thanks to Erika for doing the project with me its always more fun to craft with friends.
