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.

Halloween with Cheery Lynn Designs

9 Sep
I do so want fall to get here!
The warm weather is getting old and I am in the mood for cooler temps, changing colors and making costumes!
So, I have decided to help things along the way by thinking forward.
Here is my project for today. It is called a shelf card.

Now, I am not going to lie to you, maybe the theory of making this card is easy, but…

…if I had someone to call and cry to about this card, I would have!

I borrowed the name BOO CREW from Authentique Paper. I as using paper from their GLOWING line and on one of the HEADLINES for GLOWING , you will see this cute little phrase.

Once again, I used a lot of dies on this project. To start, on each level I used a SCALLOPED OVAL as my decorating base.
For my spiders on the first level, I worked my magic on some DARLING DAISIES turning the daisies into this likable spiders.

Also on the first level of the card I made flowers out of the smallest SCALLOPED OVAL.
The oval made this funky sort of shaped flower, perfect for this card.
The leaves underneath are from the set called JUDY’S BLOOMS.

On the 3rd and top layer I used a cute little stamp I had to represent the BOO CREW.

Here is a side view of this intricate card.

Another side view.

You can see how each layer is staggered.

Believe it or not, it DOES fold flat!

Have I made you long for some fall time activities or card making? I hope so.
I had fun making this, even though it was very trying!
I adore the way it turned out and it was huge therapy for me to make my own spiders…
…NO ONE is more scared of those things than me!
Like I always say, Paper-crafting is THERAPY!!
