It wasn’t until about a month ago that I had walked into Michaels and seen the red and black display of spooky flower arrangements that they had for sale. I wanted to buy them that very day but I didn’t. They were a little pricey because as you know when your building your own arrangements for a vase or a table display you usually have to pick them out piece by piece. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve gathered a handful of flowers and then added up the total cost for my beautiful bouquet and put them back wishing I had the money to do spend on these beautiful flowers 💐
Let’s talk about starting your new Fall project!
You’ll never guess where I found the best selection of blanks to do these projects… Wal-Mart!!

If you answers yes to numbers 1,2 and 4 here’s a little inspiration for you to get you started.< b>< b>The image seen below turned out great! It’s my favorite of the 4 designs I made.< b>< b>To get this pumpkin image go to this link right here. <<
ploaded the pumpkin image for free in Design space and then I added some fun fonts.
Tip: whenever I use a foil product wether it be made by Cricut brand or any other brand I use my extra strong German blade. It gets the job done so much faster and cuts with precision. I didn’t have much luck with my first attempt cutting foil with a standard blade.
< b>You just have to use a little imagination and find the time (it didn’t take as long as I thought it was going to take) it takes hours if you don’t plan ahead and stick to a plan!< b>I saved the best for last…< b>This font was purchased in a bundle I bought through this link here! It came in a huge Halloween bundle for 22.00$. You have to check it out if you’re into fun, rustic looking elements/graphics and fonts. < b>< b>I’m going to be completely honest here, it was a bitch weeding this font. After pulling it into design space and after all of the editing and sizing there was a whole bunch of small vinyl to pick through to get the correct image. After I was finished I was besides myself.m! Look how darn cute this turned out. < b>< b>If you have any questions regarding any of the images in this post please do not hesitate to reach out. One of my favorite things about blogging is all of the great engagement with other bloggers. I’ve met some amazing and inspiring women. < b>Xoxoxo,< b>Julia <<
