CHA Sneak Peek… Reminisce introduces… HARVEST

REMINISCE has started their CHA Sneak Peeks!!!

they will be introducing a new line {or lines!} each day this week!

and… they are giving away packs of the NEW lines BEFORE you can even buy them! all you have to do is go to the REMINISCE BLOG and post a comment under the new release you’d like to win! which i think would be ALL OF THEM!

they are kicking off the peeks with the new HARVEST line; which is just gorgeous. think off all the colors you associate with fall and you’ll find them there in soft sophisticated designs. i think you’ll be surprised by this line as well as several of the other new lines coming out as they are all a new look from Reminisce!

the project featured today using the Harvest line, is a table setting that i did…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

the pumpkins are made like the old honeycomb decorations. i made a template for half the pumpkin first from chipboard. then cut and folded 5 different papers in half, traced the pumpkin on them – with the center aligned on the fold, then cut them out. i also cut one piece just to fit the template. then the folded pieces were glued back to back, one on top of each. the extra paper half was glued to the template, and then that piece was glued on top of the stack. then, when you bring the back piece around to meet the front piece it forms a pumpkin! i punched holes in the chipboard lined piece and the last piece and tied ribbons through the holes to hold the pumpkin open. the stems were cut from kraft cardstock that i stamped first, then i inked the edges. the vines were made from border stickers adhered back to back and twisted around a small dowel. a small slit, about 1″ – 1 1/2″ was cut up the center at the bottom of each stem so it could slide on the pumpkin. since the pieces fold up, you can easily store them without damage til next year!

the napkin rings/placecard holders were really easy to make. i just folded pieces of cardstock in half to make “tents”. then cut pieces of printed paper to adhere to each side. then a hole was punched at the sides of each placecard, punching one layer at a time. then, i just decorated with more printed paper, stickers and a bit of jute.

i used ColorBox Fluid Chalk ink in Chestnut Roan to stamp and distress with.

i hope you enjoyed this project, and please, don’t forget to check out the REMINISCE BLOG each day this week and get signed up to WIN the new lines!!!

Reminisce Celebration Series — part 2

time for the second part of the Reminisce Celebration Series posts! if you missed the first post, just scroll down!

the second party set i made featured the BACKYARD BASH portion of the line. this party set is themed as a “BBQ Cook-off Block Party”…

the set includes an invitation, name cards, chef’s hat and award ribbons. i LOVED the BIG stickers – the BBQ, ketchup and mustard bottles – and really wanted to feature them – so i thought they would make cute award ribbons for a BBQ cookoff. {ps: thanks to charlotte for the chef’s hat idea!} 

the colors and graphics in this line are VERY bright and BOLD! it would be great for tailgate, family bbq’s, picnics or family reunion layouts or paper crafting projects.

a layout using the CELTIC PRIDE line is still coming up!
