Thanksgiving Gift Basket

Image
Hello and welcome to my blog! It's time again for me to have made something for "Adopt-A-Staff" program at my son's school. At the beginning of the school year, I had to pick one staff member or teacher and volunteer to anonymously bring that person a gift every month.
Yeah . . . I'm choosing to show off a little bit and hopefully she really likes what I've done so far. My goal is to hand make her something every month. So far, I've been using the awesome projects designed by Dreaming Tree
Next month is not only Christmas, but it's her birthday month too. Hmmmmm........
Without further ado, I made this basket from the Harvest Time bundle at Dreaming Tree. I have made several of their projects and have found them not only easy to do (relatively speaking) but really hitting the spot on what I'm looking for when it comes to handmade 3D projects.
My harvest basket is made using the Simple Stories: Forever Fall collection.

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I would love to share with you my latest mixed media canvas using my favorite Fall colors.

I made this project with two different challenges in mind; Creative Embellishments and Lindy's Stamp Gang.



I would love to enter both challenges every month but sometimes the colors aren't quite in my arsenal. For whatever reason, I still don't have a really good red from Lindy's or a deep blue. First world problems, right?!

I am especially proud of this project because I did not "lift" from anyone else. This is 100% out of my head. Now, countless hours spent watching others create certainly helped, and I do recommend that for anyone learning a new way of crafting. The supplies used are listed at the end of my post.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!




I touched up the entire project at the end with shimmery acrylic paint: ginger magic.

I am particularly fond of adding pebbles and stones to my canvases.  It's such a simple and easy wa…

Scrap The Boys: U + Me

Hello there! It's that time again for a new challenge at Scrap The Boys!! 
Thanks for stopping by today!!

I have lots of photos of my son and I'm not in many of them. I have even fewer photos of me and my husband, but we did get family photos taken last year. So I thought this was a great opportunity to make a page about us! I was greatly inspired by Natalie DeSousa's page with Simple Stories. 

I used leaf cut files from the Silhouette Design Store. All the pattern paper and extras are by Fancy Pants "Golden Days" collection.


You can really bring a page together just by adding stitching.
Thanks for stopping by today!
