Sweet treats....









 
 
September has come and will be gone before we know it....so now is the time to start creating up a storm for Fall and Halloween.   I had fun sorting through my Really Reasonable Ribbon and knew I had to play with the new mini pom pom trim .  It is soooo cute!  I made a set of two mini lollipop pockets and adorned them with the pom pom and sticker borders.  I used some old looking images and a few little toppings.  I also used orange seambindings  to add some fullness to each pocket.  I couldn't leave the lollipops plain jane so I added a bit of two tone textured ribbon in the orange with a bit of
black jute wound through the little stamped tags.  It made the lollipops a little more special!
I couldn't stop there though...you know me and halloween.  I decided to also make a plaque.  I fell in love with this pumpkin and created a rosette using my scor-pal. to set the pumpkin on top.  I love making rosettes using the scor-pal ...they turn out perfect everytime.  I used seam bindings again...this time using black and orange but I threw some of my orange into a vat of tea and let it sit overnight.  It came out darker and richer.  It is fun sometimes to alter your ribbons. I Love the outcome and will be doing this again.  So what do you think?  Are you ready to bring the Fall  on?   Lol...hope you have enjoyed! Happy September! hugs, cherry
