A little fairy tale

Hi again friends! Posting today for The Robin's Nest - I've been thinking ahead a little, thinking about all the things I have to be thankful for and I decided to create a few cards with that in mind.
The awesome Robin's Nest products I used are:
First I made my top fold card base of 4.25 x 5.5. I cut out the sentiment I wanted to use from the reversible Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock (you can chose any sentiment you'd like) and mounted it onto a 1/8" around larger black cardstock mat. I set that aside for later. 
I then turned to the 1st layer of my card. I decided to use this beautiful Black on White Damask Thermal and I cut it to measure 4 x 5.25. I then used the reverse side of the  Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock which happens to be the beautiful script paper that is peaking out from under the damask paper. I cut it to measure 3 x 3. I glued it to the card base on the bottom right corner. I then took the black damask paper and rolled the edge using my bone folder. I glued it to the card base on top of the smaller piece of script paper.
 I used a glue dot to adhere the edge back up on itself. Using a bit of glue, I added the shimmery red dew drop that came from the Rosy Straw package. Now that the base and 1st layer are set, I moved on to the sentiment. We have already layered it onto the slightly larger black cardstock, and now we get to add it to the card face!

I added foam pop dots to the sentiment and before I added it to the card front I decided to manipulate the straw from the Rosy Straw pack to the underneath using scotch tape to keep it in place. I have found this the easiest way for me to make this straw stay right where I want it. After I got it right where I wanted it, I added it to the upper center of the card front. I added a really cute Heart RN Paper Clips to the side and called it complete!
I hope you will click on over to The Robin's Nest to gather all your crafting needs!  Have a magical day! Thanks so very much for taking time out of your busy day to read my little post.

Halloween Night


 Halloween layout with fun Robin's Nest products!

We just moved in to our new home on Halloween several years back and the children had long since flown the nest so who can I dress up for the night?  That's right my fur babies!

As we gear up for the holidays our time spent of crafting lessens.  So today I would like to show you how to create this cute layout in minimal time.  We start off with this adorable  The Robin's Nest-Black Bat Cardstock.
Black Bats Glitter Cardstock

I had bits and pieces of purple card stock and The Robin's Nest-Forest Trees Specialty paper  which I torn in strips.  The pumpkins were painted orange then tipped with white paint to give them a moon glow. One of the pumpkins with vine was placed in the top corner over the card stock pieces.
 Last month you saw my layout(if not check on my September 14th blog post)with the black bats.  The Robin's Nest-Bats Glitter Chipboard contains both black and purple bats. This time I used the purple ones to contrast with the  black bat Cardstock.  Using Helmar liquid Scrap dots they are now elevated on the page to add a 3d look.

To begin the main piece I took one strip of , The Robin's Nest-Forest Trees Specialty paper which has a tree design on the front and a gold and cream design on the back and  punched them with two separate lace designs.  One piece is placed on the bottom and the other on top of the purple torn piece. They add light and airiness to the design.  The web chip board was first painted black then embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang-Silver Moon Turquoise embossing powder.
The picture was matted in black.  I found this purple chip board frame in my stash which is the perfect color for the bats!  I couldn't resist using it to frame my sweet Dorry who has long since left us.  I glued a piece of cardboard on the back of the picture so I could tuck bits and pieces underneath.  Now on to the layers!  First I placed the rub on title from The Robin's Nest-Halloween Rub-ons.
Next I placed my pumpkins and spiderwebs followed by the flowers and cheese clothe and ending with my little fussy cut spooks!

Voila the project is complete!
Thank you for stopping by and having a peek.  I hope what you have seen inspires you to let your own creativity take flight!  Don't forget to check out the store to see what's new or just to stock up on those items you need for your holiday crafts!  And don't forget to check out our monthly sketch challenge!

Rosette Pumpkins

Hi Robin's Nest fans! Jess here with the cutest little pumpkin you have ever seen.

Not only is is cute, but is is so easy to make.
Cut your rosettes out  of your Leaf Glitter Cardstock in several sizes.

I have two die cuts that cut three different size rosettes.  I cut out four rosettes and glued them together using my hot glue gun.  Once the rosettes were formed I simply stacked them on top of one another and used the hot glue again.
Cut two of the small leaves out of the Leaf Glitter Cardstock.  Poke a small hole in the top of each leaf and string through with a piece of green jute.
I went outside and cut a small stick off a flower bush in my yard to use for the stem.  The stem was glued in and then I tied on the leaves.
To make the tag use the oval from the Outdoors Sticker set and place it on top of plain cardstock.  Get your Fall Rub On set and use the "Give Thanks" on your oval.

Tie the sicker on the stem and your pumpkin is complete.

These are so fun and quick to make up.  I hope you give it a try.

Hello Chattering Robins Readers!

Robin posting today.

This is part 2 of Josh and Robyn's Military Photo shoot.

There is nothing in the world that gives me more respect for 
 women than those women who have supported 
their husbands through a deployment,
Robyn has supported Josh through 3 deployments,
2 to Afghanistan, and one to Iraq, and the Iraq 
deployment was for 16 months, the soldiers of that 
striker unit were required to stay 4 extra months without
a furlow.

So this picture brings tears to my eyes, as I know
the love each of them have for each other,
and yet for our country as well.

These are trying and hard times, and sacrifice is 
the best word I could come up with to represent what 
this photo is all about.
Sacrifice for us, for America, for their family, and their relationship.

We have 3 sons in the Army, they combined have served 7 deployments to 
the middle east, and many other times away from 
their families for months at a time to schools, other countries
where the family cannot go, and short deployments,
which I have not even included in the above deployments.

Yes it is a Sacrifice!

I used these Robin's Nest Products

Blue glitter cutout stars
Blue burlap
Silver mesh
Heart dew drops
Blue Fleur Linen CS
Blue Glitter stars on red paper
Flag paper (I used the uncut version which is available)

Furling Flag Specialty PaperRobins Red Dew DropsRubber Ducky Mini Dew Drops

I love to share these things with you,
they are very personal to our family, and it is
such a great thing that our sons do for
us as an American people.

This is a tribute to Josh and Robyn,
On some other posts we will salute our
other sons as well.

Have a great day!
