Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Hope you are having a great holiday with family and friends. Now that your bellies are stuffed with turkey, lean back and check out what the Just A Scrappin' Design Team has been up to. We know your full, but you can never have too much inspiration, right!?!?

This weeks challenge: Let's get those Turkeys gobbling. Make a Thanksgiving card, layout or 3D project. Use any color but lets add some lace.



Size: A2

This week the challenge was to use lace, but I didn't have any. With my truck being in the garage three times this month, I really didn't have the funds to get my hands on any either. I decided this Dotted Scallop punch by EK Success had a "lacey" look to it.

Supplies
Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge
Gypsy by Cricut
Stampin' Up Cardstock: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Patterned Paper: Recollections Autumn Harvest
Sentiment: Thankful for You (CardzTV) Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento Ink)
Other: Action Wobble (AWI); Brads (Stampin' Up); Dotted Scallop Punch (EK Success); Ribbon (Michael's)

Measurements
On all three layers of the card, I used the Dotted Scallop punch.
Base: 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
Layer: 4 1/8 X 5 3/8
2nd Layer: 4 1/8 X 2

Turkey (P 62)
All cut @ 3.25 height
(Turkey) 3.49 w
(Turkey-s) 2.77w
(Layer) 1.88w
(Layer-s) 1.91w

I deleted all but the cut lines with my Gypsy. Nothing drives me more crazy than seeing the pre-cut lines behind my cuts!

I really wish you could see the turkey wobbling on his action wobble, it really hits the phrase home :)

Just A Scrappin' DT - Challenge # 27

Welcome back! Today is Thursday, so that means another super exciting project with the Just A Scrappin' DT.

Challenge: Create a card, layout or project using stripes. Also use autumn colors.

This was a fun card to do, just using stamps and dies. As you know most of my cards involve my Cricut. Not very often I get back to stamping!

I was going to color in the image with my Copic markers, but really liked something in the simplicity of the image.

Make sure to stop by Just A Scrappin' to check out the other DT members projects and to post your newly created project.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate you taking a look and leaving a comment :)

"I'M SO THANKFUL" CTV STAMPS DT CHALLENGE #18

Hey all!! Happy Tuesday :) I hope everyone was able to get out and vote today! Everyone has an opinion, might as well make it count.

Today I made a project for a challenge over at Cardz TV.

Challenge: Create a card, layout or craft project for Thanksgiving!


Size: A2

Supplies
Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Cartridge
Cardstock: Core'dinations - Dark Brown, Orange, Yellow
Patterned Paper: DCWV Harvest Gathering Matstack
Sentiment: Cardz TV (Thankful for You); Ink: Stampin' Up: Early Espresso
Other: Details Ribbon

I am not sure of the measurements as I actually made this card using my Cricut, not my Gypsy. I believe I made this at 4.00.

I really liked this sentiment because it was different then just using the sentiment "Happy Thanksgiving". But, it still gets the same message across! It also fits well because this card will be going to a family member and I am VERY thankful for all of my family.

Thanks for dropping by to check out my creation! Stop back tomorrow to check out Create A Critter 2 Wednesday.
