Thanksgiving Utensil Holder

Happy Thanksgiving Week!!

I recently saw on someone's blog a cute utensil holder and thought how could I create one myself. Then I remembered the Easter 2010 cart has a pillow box on it. So I welded the pillow box and a triangle for the top part of the utensil holder where the utensil's will lay on.

Here are a couple of pictures with the size of the holder.

The size is 7 x 8.25
I cut the orange background from Lacy Labels at 2.944
I cut the cute paper at 2"
and the stamp is an oval and the brown is a scalloped edge punch
The pumpkins are from Carving Pumpkin cut at  1 1/2 and I cut 3 different pumpkins
I inked the edges of holder, the pumpkins and the oval tag

Thanks for looking!!

Glass Etched Block

Here is my first two glass etching block that I've made using the Jolly cart and Winter Woodland Carts. It was pretty easy to do and quick. Just be sure to leave the etching cream on longer than 30 min. The first picture was my first and I didn't leave the cream on long enough. The second glass block I left the cream on for about 30 min. it could've stayed on another 10 min.. I think they turned out pretty cute!!

Birdhouse Ornament

 Hello~ I've been busy working on making 15 of these adorable little birdhouse ornaments for a little gift to pass out at my 1st ever Cookie Exchange Party.

I love how they turned out. I still want to add white glitter to the base for a snow effect.

There's a little door in the back to put an electric tealight inside, which I had to hand cut.. I still haven't learned how to make my own files so this is an SVG file I bought from SVG Cuts awhile back.

 The birdhouse is an SVG file from SVG Cuts
   The bird and branch are cut out from Winter Woodland
   Bird is cut out at 2.5" and the branch at 3", I trimmed off the trunk.
   The base is a 3.5" square from George Cartridge
 I added bakers twine and 2 brads in the roof so it could be hung from the tree
I added white effects using a white gel pen on the bird and berries.

I'm on KaDoodle Bug's Design Team!! Whoo hoo!!!

I am so excited to be on Melissa's design team over at KaDoodle Bug!!! I made the following project using her files found herehttp://www.kadoodlebugdesigns.com.

For the house I used the Cricut Cartridge Sweet Tooth Boxes
The Ginger Family was from KaDoodle Bug Designs, you can find her cute files by clicking the link above.


DCWV Christmas stack from last year
House: Sweet Tooth Boxes (Cricut Cartridge)
Cut out at 11.53
Ginger Family found at KaDoodle Bug Designs
Cut out at 3" ( I made them too big, if your going to make this, I would maybe scale them down to 2")

I used Peachy Keen stamps for their faces and chalked their cheeks. 

If you decide to make this I would love to see it :)
