Using a snippet of lilac card, I embossed it and then die-cut it using the square die.
Next, I die-cut the word 'happy' three times using snippets
of white card and glued them together to give a bit of dimension.
 I stamped the word birthday onto a snippet of black card using a Versamark inkpad
and then heat embossed it white embossing powder.

Spellbinders Nestabilities - Squares

'Memory' Pumpkins

After seeing lots of handmade pumpkins on social media just recently,
 I thought I'd join the club and have a go at making myself some!

I've watched various tutorials on YouTube, and apart from knitting or crocheting 
them myself, they can also be made from old jumpers, shirts and socks.

I still have the majority of Harty's (my late husband) clothes which I plan to
donate to charity as well as using some to make a few memory projects.
I thought his 'walking' socks could be put to good use for the pumpkins.

I used a combination of tutorials, the main one being from Rosie Henshaw which
you can find HERE. I love watching her videos, she is very creative with
a lovely style and personality.

I made one large and one small pumpkin from one sock and I
used these hair bun donuts which I bought in Poundland.


I completed them using thread to give the pumpkin some shape and with
pieces of twig from the garden. 
Here are a couple of autumnal arrangements I have made with them. 

I think Harty would be pleased with my up-cycling and I have a feeling I 
will be making some more.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
