Some New Autumn Projects

I know what you're thinking, "More vinyl? I thought this was a stamp blog?"
Well, it is mostly a stamp blog since that is one of my favorite things, but I also enjoy almost anything crafty, so I subject my readers to whatever crafts I have been working on lately. As you can probably tell, my order from my sister-in-law through Uppercase Living came in a few days ago & so I've been getting all of my autumn vinyl projects done. I love them because they are so easy to complete & they look so nice!
Well, here's project #1:
I just bought this trifle bowl at Wal-mart (I think it was around $6) & then I bought some fake fall vegetables/acorns on sale at Michael's to put inside of the bowl. Last, I stuck the "Give Thanks" vinyl in the color Soft Copper onto the outside of the bowl & this is my new centerpiece on my kitchen table for the fall!
Project #2:
This one was soooooo easy! I had this plain white plate & I just stuck the "FALL" vinyl on it in the color Terra Cotta right in the center & then stuck this above my cabinets in the kitchen.

And project #3:

First, my colors are a little off in this photo, so I'm not quite sure what happened. My wall is a taupe color, the frame is chocolate brown, the fabric inside of the frame is a cream color, the wheat is the color Honey Wheat & the saying is Chocolate Brown. This was one of the hostess gifts from Uppercase Living, so I got this one for FREE! And I got to choose the colors I wanted for it & everything! So I found this shadowbox frame, with the fabric already inside, at Michael's & bought it with a 50% off coupon. Then I just stuck the vinyl onto the outside of the glass. Easy! I'm thinking that it might look a little washed out, so I might put some fall leaves inside of the shadowbox part, or maybe a piece of fall-colored scrapbook paper.
Well, I promise I'll have some stamping projects again soon!
