  3. Thanks for sharing, I am a digital person and have recreated your designs in MDS2.   The pirate you made has been created as an Italian artist and he turned out so cute.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Wow, love your scarecrow.  Thanks for sharing.  I was looking for ideas for a fall scrapbook page and I think I've found a great addition.

  5. Rae,
    My aunt loves scarecrows, so I had to make one for her birthday a week from tomorrow!  I hope it makes her smile as much as it made me smile!  Thank you for sharing Rae!  

  6. This is easily the cutest scarecrow I have ever seen. I LOVE all your embellishments.  You are one talented and clever artist.  TFS

    • Holly, click on the Nuts & Bolts graphic of this post. You’ll get a downloadable PDF of supplies. The hat is also the Top Note die. The bird is from teh Bird Builder punch. Hope that helps.

  7. WOWZA! I just found you today, from Mary Fish's blog… these are adorable!  The Wizard of Oz is MY all time favorite movie as well….I try to watch it every year, and I am 62 years old! I remember delivering Girl Scout cookies one Sunday and had to hurry home by 5 PM to watch it! 🙂  Do you have a tutorial some where that tells us how to make all the parts? Like the hat?  And for a card, I would assume you place the folded card base slightly below the top cutting line so the card opens?  This is great! thanks for sharing!

    • Great story! I don’t have an official tutorial. However, click on the Nuts & Bolts graphic of this post. You’ll get a downloadable PDF of supplies. Thank you for the great comment Bobbi.

  8. He is soooo cute! I am going to try and make one this afternoon . oh and btw ..the top note is my favorite die and I have quite a few but it always seems to be the one that says "Pick me"  love this!

  9. Hi Rae,
    Have you posted the directions somewhere.  I see the supply list b, but not any directions on how you put together this "oh, so cute" scarecrow.

    Have a truly inspiring day!

  10. Rae ~ I , for one, will NEVER get tired of your top note creations.  They are AWESOME.  You are SO CREATIVE!! 
    I do have a question.  How will you use them?  Is this an actual card that opens or simply a card topper?
    Thanks again for the inspiration!!

    • Judy,

      First, thank you! As far as how I will use them. Sometimes, I give them away as cards and sometimes I use them to make cute little favors or the front of a box like Fancy Favor. This one is actually a card. Maybe next time I should show it open as well.

      Thanks again for your great comment!


  11. OOH my goodness!! I just love him!!! He makes me happy just looking at
    him. Perfect for fall! Well done!
    Jennifer, Calgary
