I sat aside that box of assorted paper collections I've been using up for a day and started working on cards for the fall season. I broke down and ordered a few new sheets from A Cherry on Top that should come next week. In the mean time, I have just enough of some older patterns to get going. This is an assortment of Imaginisce and My Mind's Eye.
The ABC card is from Idea-ology's Thrift Shop ephemera pack by Tim Holtz. The die cut on top of it was made using my Die-namics Layered Labels die. The mini doily is a section of a Prima trim from a year or two back.
This is one of the Recollections flowers that I stocked up on when Michaels had a clearance a couple years ago. Besides this one, I only have three others. I sure wish they would have had more, because I love these things. They're ideal for autumn projects.
The gorgeous antique bronze metal filigree corner is from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. The ivory burlap string is by May Arts. There's a bit of cheesecloth tucked in there, too.
I cut my leaves with Alterations Movers & Shapers Mini Tattered Leaves die set using my treasured hand dyed wools I buy in Amish country.
The Penmaker had another special order for a custom pen, and this one is really custom. The order was for the pen to be in plain Gecko Green, which turned out impossible to find. So my husband had to make his own using a special custom mixed paint from a shop that will make up any car color you need... this one being a Jeep.
He is on a roll right now doing writing instruments in this stick shift style. We have a car show event coming up and I think this will be a winner. We also have something really exciting that may take place that I can't divulge just yet. Yikes, I can hardly wait to spill the beans.
An update on our sons movie: He's had numerous screenings, speaking engagements, radio interviews, etc. The movie has been a success, so he's moving ahead with two more in the works. The latest issue of Digital FilmMaker has an article on the making of Minerva Monster. You can pick up a copy at your local Barnes & Noble.
