Hello! This tag album is handmade from chipboard and decorated using Pion Design’s newest holiday paper collection “Glistening Season.” The matching card uses a Spellbinders 5X7 Mystical Embrace die for the base. These projects can be found on Pion Design’s November 1 blog post here.

Hoping everyone has a great Autumn day!

Sometimes when I’m in a hurry to come up with gifts, I just cover simple unfinished wood or chipboard items that I’ve purchased with the lovely Pion Design paper collections and the papers transform them into beautiful projects. These are both wooden KaiserCraft items that were covered with Pion Design’s new holiday collections: Glistening Season and Christmas in Norway. I am always excited when they release new collections – they seem to get more beautiful with each release! You can also find this post on the Pion Design Blog here.
May your day be inspirational as you craft!

This Carousel Swing project tries to capture the bygone days of childhood when there was anticipation for county fair and carnival rides such as this one. We’re approaching the time of year for fairs in this part of the country, and I still go every year! I always look forward to the tasty funnel cakes and fried cheesecake that are so famous at the fair.
This project is functional with pull-out drawers on the base. It’s made with poster board, and chipboard. I’m enclosing the templates for this project along with instructions for how to construct it for those of you interested in making it. Be sure and scale and print each of the templates at 100%. It’s a challenging project requiring lots of time to make, but the end result is sure to be something that will be dearly treasured!

I’ve made another one of these using Pion Design’s new Christmas papers and will post it soon to include the WPC cutting file.
Best wishes for everyone to have a very happy day!
