School/Fall Blog Hop


Welcome to the School/Fall Blog Hop, hosted by Sylvia, from Bella Scrapbook Designs.  She has a great line up of very talented ladies for this blog hop. You should have arrived here from Eva's Scrap N' Cards.  If you've happened to stop by my blog (thanks) and would like to play along on the blog hop please start at Bella Scrapbook Designs
Both of my kids are adults and not in school anymore. I miss those days of after school cookies and sitting at the table talking about how their day was at school.  So I decided to do a fall project.  When you think of fall you think pumpkins. I wanted to make this pumpkin last year but didn't have time. When I found out I was going to be in this blog hop I knew right away this would be the perfect project.

 

I started with a glass block from Hobby Lobby. Make sure you have the one that has the hole in the bottom. I used white Stazon ink to coat both sides of the block.
 

Let the ink dry while you cut the vinyl. I used the Pumpkin Carving Seasonal cartridge and cut my pumpkin at 5". I'm going to put this in my kitchen window and needed both sides decorated,so I cut 2 pumpkins.

After I carefully applied the  vinyl to both sides of the block I used a string of 50 lights and put them in the hole in the bottom of the block. Tie ribbon around the block, plug in and enjoy.

 Make sure you enter to win the blog candy. Become a follower and leave a comment telling me your a follower and a way to contact you if you win. Random.org will pick the winner on wednesday.
Click here to enter to win the Cindy Loo cartridge. When I reach 200 followers Random.org will pick a winner.
 Your next stop is Nicole at Teach Danz make sure you stop by her blog and see the great project she has to show you.
Here is the line up if you would like to revisit any of the great blogs.
