Thanksgiving Table Decorations

I saw these turkeys and pumpkins on Pinterest and wanted to try and make some for my dining room table. I used the turkey from Celebrate with a Florish and scallop circles from Mini Monograms. I cut off about a half inch from the bottoms, cut a slit up the middle of the scallops, then fit the circle onto the turkey. I should have used heavy cardstock because the thin paper had to be taped at the back of the turkey. The pumpkin is 5 circles, scored in half, then glued together. I think I should have added a few more circles to fill it out. I was a fun, easy, and cheap way to add decorations to my table on short notice.

Fall Banner

I made a banner for my mantle using Birthday Bash for the base, Storybook for the font, Elegant Edges for the scallop circle, and Doodlecharms for the basket & leaves. I also embossed the circles with adds texture. Fast and easy homemade decoration, love it.

Halloween Decorations

I made a few decorations to go along with the banner I made last week. I made the box for the "Thing" hand using my Martha Stewart score board. All the cuts are from Happy Hauntings. I needed a way to hang the Witch sign so I hot glued a soda can top to the back and it works great.

Telescoping Card

I just love this card! Its a fun card to make and very easy. I found the tutorial here. I made 2 of them, one for Fall and another one to put away in my stash. I used my Cricut to cut the scallops and circles and used Doodlecharms for the leaves and acorn on the fall card. The measurements I used where different than the tutorial.

Halloween Cards

This card is a double Z fold, I think. Whatever its called it was fun to make, its a nice card for the holidays because you have more areas to embellish. I used Happy Hauntings, Celebrate with a Florish, and stamps.

Halloween Banner

I made this banner to decorate my mantel for Halloween. The Cricut carts I used were Happy Hauntings, Birthday Bash, Holiday Cakes, and October 31st. Birthday Bash makes it so easy to create a banner for any occasion. There are several different interesting banner shapes besides the standard triangle that you usually see. The font I used is from Happy Hauntings, there are 2 and I just love them!

Pics from old blog

I didn't like the name on my other blog, so with my sisters help came up with a new name and started this new blog. The design is the same but it would take too long to transfer all my old posts, so I'm going to post pictures of some of my favorite projects. Thanks to all of you  who followed me here.
