It's Day Four of our Petaloo International and Graphic 45 Blog Hop! There are so many great home decor ideas from our Design Team today. Miranda Edney, Donna Espiritu, and Lori Williams knock their projects out of the park. Petaloo flowers are so beautiful and are the perfect embellishment for every single project, as varied and unique as they all are. Don't forget to scroll all the way down to get to Petaloo's blog link. What a great day this will be!


Have you entered our blog hop contest yet? You could win this prize pack of An Eerie Tale and Petaloo flowers and trim worth $55! Just comment here on the blog and on Petaloo's blog. Easy, fun, and a beautiful prize could await you at the end!


Today, Miranda will WOW you with a perfect autumn terrarium. She even has a Snapguide for her great 3D Mushrooms. Absolutely beautiful!

"Lately I have been obsessed with miniature little scenes (thank my teammie Nichola for this!) So I wanted to create a little one inside of this terrarium glass. It was SUPER EASY! I have a snapguide on making your own little 3d mushrooms as well! All you need is pencil, paper, scissors and glue! The Petaloo flowers just pulled everything together so well! And well the colors match up perfectly! Hope you all like this, hugs!" ~Miranda

Donna shares an absolutely magical wall hanging using An Eerie Tale. Her fussy cutting is masterful. Take it away, Donna!

"There were several papers in the collection that were dream come true for fussy cutters like me. Even the smallest of prints (like the roses) added great dimension when popped up with foam tape. I created this wooden decor painting the wood with gesso and then purple acrylic paint. After the paint dried, I applied Mod Podge on the surface and started decorating with the fussy cut pieces. I also made a wing out of washi tape adhered on a piece of patterned paper and placed underneath the woman figure, depicting either an angel or a fairy. Up to your imagination! I brushed stickles on some parts like the flowers and some of the fussy cut pieces using my finger. I finished it off with a ribbon attaching it to the back."~Donna

Wow, we love this idea from Lori for a fun table centerpiece of mantle decoration - so many home decor possibilities.

"Fall is one of my favorite times of year and Halloween falls into that category. I’m not a lover of blood and gore but I certainly am a HUGE FAN of retro cute Halloween. I love all the vintage decorations that are all the rage with their popping color combinations and creepy motifs. Today I created two crystal ball centerpieces and with the help of the Graphic 45’s Eerie Tale and the Petaloo Flowers I think I pulled off that old fashion vibe to a tea. The glass balls were smoked first before I added the stamped transparent images to the center, so they really fool the eye with the illusion of floating images. I can’t wait to start decorating the house because I know these are going to go in the center of my dining room table." ~Lori
