Fall Projects

DSC_0003

We made these fun Thanksgiving cards with my girlfriends the other
day.  My initial idea was that you'd put a photo on the front &
then that person would write what they're grateful for on the
back.  It was going to have a pocket for each card & be
attached with rings & ribbon.  Then I got lazy & stuffed 3
cards in one pocket....and I LOVE it! (the leaf I used is an EK Success
punch; the photo corners I made using 2 square punches)

I made this the other day in no time flat.  It's a frame we had
lying around the store (11x14, I think with an 8x10 opening).  I
gathered up a few fall papers I love & my QuicKutz (fall &
family are Chemistry, colors is Rollerskate, the pumpkin & maple
leaf are QuicKutz, too).  Oh, and my trusty 2" square punch (the
purple one from Marvy, which is actually a little bigger than 2") and an
ink pad.  Isn't it cute?  I'm loving the fall theme of
it.  In person, the pumpkin & maple leaf have dimension, as do
the buttons & the epoxy charm in the lower left corner.  It was
fun to do...took NO time at all!  Maybe 30 minutes?

I didn't
get a photo of it yet, but the NAU gals did a really cool tree in the
front window of the store.  It's old tree branches with die cut
leaves on them that say what they're grateful for.  Stop by &
check it out!  It's super cute...and SUPER inexpensive!  Plus
EASY to re-create!

What paper crafting projects are you making for Thanksgiving?
