Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

4 Nov
I have such a fun idea to share with you!
The holidays are upon us.  I have an adorable idea for you to try for your Thanksgiving table this year.
How about mini cornucopias and easel place cards?
I had so much fun looking at my dies and figuring out what I could make for this cornucopia.
I think I am the queen of “thinking outside of the box.”
I will tell you my secret ingredients(dies) for each thing you are seeing here.
To start with, I used the Folding Fan.
The pumpkins are made from Wittle Wickers and Dimensional Small Leaves #2.
The tomato is made from Stacker Flower 3 and Leaf.
 The corn is made from the Tulip in the Tulip Frame die.
The vine the grapes are attached to is from Bird on a Branch.   The sunflower is from the Sunflower die.
I made the place cards from the Little Stackers French Flair dies.
The tiny rolled flower is the handle from the Folding Fan die.
All my papers are from Authentique Paper’s new line called Gathering.
SO what do you think?  Can you imagine how cute it would be to have these decorations at your table for Thanksgiving?
This was such a joy to make.  My kids just went nuts when the saw the tiny ears of corn.  They loved it all.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today.

Happy Friday oh and Happy Birthday to me!!

Fall Decor with Cheery Lynn Designs

7 Oct
Today I have such a fun project to share with you.  This is my first post with Cheery Lynn Designs with the new team members we have added!
I have made some cards for the upcoming seasons, but this is my first home decoration.
These letters, believe it or not are made out of paper.  My kids thought they were wood, but nope they are paper.
The patterns are from SVG CUTS.
I have used lots of dies to create the fall scenes on each letter.
For the letters “F” and “A”, I used the following dies: Tropical Flourish, Sweet Williams, Dimensional Small Leaves 2, Grass Border, Hearts 1 and Scare Me.
On the 2 “L’s” I used the following dies: Sweet WilliamsDimensional Small Leaves 2Grass BorderHearts 1Scare Me and Tractor and Corn.
Here is a closer look at the letters.
The insides of the letters are hollow, so I put beans on the inside to weight them down.
 This was such a fun project to make.
It is very fulfilling to think what I can make with these dies and I love to use them in ways you might not think of.  Such as using the Hearts 1 for my pumpkins and apples.
I hope I have inspired you to start thinking of Fall decor and all the fun holidays coming up.
