Family Friday Thankful Project!

Got confused with my dates!!! Here is the Family Friday Project from last week!!! Go to Crazy About Cricut for this week's theme!
Hello friends! Today is challenge time for Family Friday!!! So, gather the family and ask the kids what they are thankful for... this could be a fun night!!! Bring out some things to do cards and have them draw, write, color... anything that shows what they are thankful for.

I asked my son, Adrian, what he was thankful for, and he said he was thankful for his daddy! So, I got out somethings for him to do a card for daddy. 

This week he used the technique he learned last time (inking) and he also tried for the first time stamping!! oh and  using the iRock! He loved it!

Didn't he do GOOD!!! I think so!!! He loves it!!! 

I have to get my other kids to do something!! 

Make sure you go visit the other DT projects over at Crazy About Cricut!!!

Hello friends!! This is my second post today! I have not had time to do Momo's challenges at all! So, today I had a little bit of time and decided I will enter!!

I did not want to make ANOTHER card!!! So, I decorated this paper bag to use on Thanksgiving. You might be thinking that gifts are usually not given at Thanksgiving, but..... I will actually have this bag full of cards that I have made and i will have it as a gift for a game we will play!! How fun is that!!! 

I used my favorite, I when I say favorite, I mean FAVORITE DCWV stack: The Autumn Splendor Stack I have found no more at my Michaels (exclusive to them)!!!!! I only bought one and regret not having bought at least 2!! :(

What do you think?? Isn't cute?!!? I almost want to keep it!!!

Here is what I used:
DCWV Autumn Splendor stack
MS Border Punch
My Scrap Chick turkey cut
Scrappy Mom's Stamps "The charmed life"
Creatology Harvest Buttons
ribbon got as a gift

Thanks for taking a peek!!!!

Home Decor for Sweet Sassy Diva

Good Morning Friends!!! Today I have for you a home decor project for my Sweet Sassy Diva DT. I had fun doing this (it was a first)! I had to use a few things for this project/challenge to me!

1. Use Felt
2. Use Green
3. Use embossing
4. Use a Cricut Cut

Materials used:

Frame from Joanns

K&Company Yuletide Christmas Collection

Ribbon from Michaels

Flowers from my BFF last year :)

Felt flower SEI 

Zip Dry Glue paper

PYM 2 Acrylic Protective Sealant

Xacto Blade

Gloss Glue

Winter Frolic Cartridge

Cricut Expression

Cricut Cuttlebug for Happy Holidays sign

Acrylic Paint for around frame

Apply glue to frame and carefully put paper, let dry and then use Xacto blade to cut paper excess.

Paint around frame. I used my finger... why? well it gives me a bit more control as to how much paint I want on the paper edges... I like the distressed look.

Flowers were adhered with glue dots. I used the gloss glue on the sign, on the red part only. I also embossed the sign.

Because I don't have Modge Podge, I used the acrylic protectant on the frame! It dries A LOT faster! :)

For this project I had to:

Use green: CHECK!

Use felt: CHECK!

Cricut cut: CHECK!

Emboss: CHECK!

This is my very first decorated frame!

I need to practice on my pictures!!!

Thank you for visiting!
