Fun idea for Pumpkin Seeds CTMH Pumpkin Basket

Hey there all! Jeanette Lynton's blog has this super cute idea for a cute basket using a new technique with your acrylic blocks.
I am loving this little basket with the super cute pumpkin set "So Grateful" (B1395). As for the stitching, you can either do actual stitching or stamp stitching. If you don't have a stamp set with stitching lines, just use a brown sharpie marker and faux stitch to your hearts desire!

This basket is made using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (Z1686). Just put the basket together and fill with roasted pumpkin seeds in a cello bag. Tie off the bag with some hemp and top it off with a cute tag. Done!

 Hope you can give it a try! Happy Crafting!

Ribbon Tree

So this is my plan... I am going to make a ribbon tree like this. I saw a tree like this at Craft Warehouse and I thought it was the coolest thing!! What do you think?
Doesn't this look super fun and easy? Just loop the ribbon (4" strips) and pin into a styrofoam or chipboard cone. If you use a chipboard cone it may be easier to use hot glue. I'll let you know how it works out!!

Merry Christmas with Believe CTMH Paper

This should give you something to "Believe" in! This super easy and classic Christmas card is the thing for you! Using CTMH paper "Believe" and some cardstock and a button it's so easy and simple you can make a bunch of them at once for family and friends!
Make your card base at 4.25"x5.5". Cover with pretty Holiday Red paper. Cut white cardstock at 3.25"x4.5" and scallop the bottom edge with a pretty decorative punch. Cut a square of cool Believe CTMH paper at 3x3.5" and adhere toward the top of the white paper keeping the top and sides equal. Cut a strip of Sweet Leaf CTMH cardstock at 3.5x1.5" and sand the edges. Adhere about an inch above the bottom scalloped edge of the white cardstock. Take a die cut snowflake (using CTMH Art Philosophy) and place on Sweet Leaf cardstock. Get a Holiday Red button and thread with white waxy flax or embroidery thread and place in center of snowflake. Stamp sentiment on white above scallops and you are done! How easy is that!

If you want to order any of these products, let me know. There are less than two months left till Christmas so get crafting!

Dreamin Paper Pack CTMH

If I have to choose a paper that personifies the month of November for me it would have to be Dreamin'.  I love the fun pattern and earthy tones that are in this paper pack.

What a great color pallet to use for fall activities like going to the Pumpkin Patch, winding your way through the Corn Mazes, or making homemade applesauce! It's the perfect time of year to go get a bushel of apples and make some sauce!
I also love the way the paper seems to make photos seem to pop right off the page.This "X" style pattern with multi colors is so beautiful but yet does not detract from the photos at all.

The last photo I'll show is a card that is so dreamy! The idea of a dandelion puff and the beautiful fall tones makes this card so perfect. Yes, I guess I am just really loving this Dreamin' Paper pack from CTMH!
I hope you have some fun making your projects and if you want to get some of this super cute paper, just let me know!
