Christmas Paper Cone & Ornament Wreath

I'm really loving paper cone wreaths these days.  I like my last one so much, Giving Thanks that I plan to  keep it hanging up in my craft room year round. 

This time I decided to make a Christmas Paper Cone and Ornament Wreath using {dollar store} red ornaments in the center.   It really does make a beautiful Holiday Statement don't ya think?

Guest Designer for The Paper Variety- Color Challenge

  Thanks so much to the ladies at The Paper Variety for having me as a guest designer this week for there color challenge! 
I just love this color combo and this photo reminds me of something I'd be drooling at in a Pottery Barn store.   My inspiration for this paper project came from the cute little woodsy-blue owl on the Cindy Loo cartridge.

Since I was going with the owl theme, I thought this would be the perfect time to use this Core Impressions paper and make this cute little bag that Robin from Robin's Creative Cottage designed .

Since the paper was already embossed with a wood grain texture, I sanded it a little for a distressed look. I cut the owl at 3 inches and added a few leaves cut from the Potpourri Basket cartridge to bring in the challenge colors.   I tied the bag together with a raffia bow, added a button and stamped a sentiment from Getting Cricky with K. Andrews- Food For Thought Stamps

Thanks so much for looking and thanks to The Paper Variety for having me as a Guest Designer!

Thankful for Friends- Glass Etching

     The Simply Sunday Challenge this week over at Getting Cricky with K. Andrews  is a "Give Thanks" project. I made these etched glass candle holder's to give to a few of my girlfriends who can really appreciate a good craft.   I'm thankful for our good conversations and laughs together. 

      This was my first attempt at etching glass and I really like how they turned out.  Looks like it's right out of a Pottery Barn Magazine, right? Much cheaper too!
       I etched the first letter of their last name using Gypsy Font.  I stamped a Thankful sentiment from K. Andrews Fall-O-oween Stamps and attached the tag with a button and raffia.   

Thanks for looking and Happy Thanksgiving!

Cooking with Cricut "Giving Thanks" Blog Hop- Fall Leaf Banner

Welcome to  Ribbons & Glue and the Cooking with Cricut "Giving Thanks" Blog Hop!  If you've come from Yolie's blog at Just Yolie, Just Create then your in the right place.  Otherwise, you'll need to head over to the CWC page to join in the fun. 

Today's Blog Hop is all about Thanksgiving Decorations, I decided to create a Fall Banner to hang in my dining room. 


I used a variety of cartridges to make this banner.

The Cornucopia Basket is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up.
The fruit and leaves  are cut from Preserves, Savory and Doodlecharms.
The banner leaves are cut and layered from Gypsy Wanderings.
The Fall font is cut from Gypsy Font.

To make the basket look 3D, I cut it twice. Once using the regular cut then again using the blackout option. I stuff some paper wedges inside the basket and added pop-dots on the fruits for dimension. 
The banner leaves are cut at 7inches and the Fall font is cut at 3 inches. I used raffia to tie the banner together and then embellished the letter leaves with buttons.

     Now it's your turn to link up a Thanksgiving project at Cooking with Cricut.   There are a few guidelines so make sure you follow the rules listed on the CWC home page so you can be eligible to win the awesome prizes.
     Now head over to  Mindy's blog at Scrappy and Piggy  to see what she's cooked up!

Guest Designer for Decorate to Celebrate- Pink and Purple Princess

  Thanks to the ladies from Decorate to Celebrate for having me as a guest designer during there month long Birthday Challenge.

     My daughter just recently celebrated her 5th birthday so I'm sharing a few things we made together for her special day. She requested princess invitations with matching pink and purple cupcakes.  
We chose to use the crown from Sweet Treats on all our projects.  As you can see, everything is pink and purple!
 For the invitations, we embossed the layers of the crown and mat and then added some glitter and gems for little girl sparkly fun.
Here are the pink and purple cupcakes as requested by the birthday girl.  The cupcake toppers are cut from the same crown as the card  and invitations. 
I wanted her to have a keepsake from her special day so I made a birthday card book.  The inside of the book card opens to a picture of her on her birthday and the next page has signatures of all the guests.   The card book is cut at 6" and embellished with ribbons, buttons and bling.
How cute are all the signatures of her little friends?

My daughter had the best day!  Thanks to  Decorate to Celebrate for having me as a Guest Designer!

Birthday Card Book...

  Thanks to the ladies at Fantabulous Cricut for featuring me this week on Spotlight Sunday and also having me as there guest designer!  The challenge this week is to create a project with a book or something related to a book.

     Since it was my daughter's 5th birthday last Friday, I made her a Birthday Card Book.  I'm actually not sure if  I should call it a book card or mini album but basically, it's a 3 page keepsake that has her birthday picture on one page and signatures of the guest's on the next page.  I guess it's a group card? Anyways, it's a fun reminder of her special day.

 I used the crown from Cricut Sweet Treats as the base of the book cut at 6 inches.   On the cover, I welded my daughter's name Reese from Opposites Attract using my Gypsy.  Then just added gems, ribbons and buttons for some fun and sparkly embellishments.


Cookie Box Tutorial...

Thanks to Rebecca from Crafting Misfit for inviting me as a guest designer! 

     Since the holiday's are coming up, many of us like to give little gifts or baked goods to the people we love.  I wanted to show you how to make a simple box that can be made in a flash and only uses one sheet of 12 x 12 paper!

  
I decided to keep the box simple because the paper is so pretty and I just added a few flower rosettes cut from Flower Shoppe.   I then wrap the box with a raffia bow and stamped a Thankful sentiment from Gettting Cricky's Fall-O-oween Stamps.



I found this box idea from the Scor Pal website, here's the original link Cookie Box to give credit to the designer but here's my how to tutorial also. 

1- 12 x12 sheet of cardstock.


Score at 3" and 9" then rotate paper and Score at 1", 3 1/2", 6 1/2" and 9".


 Cut ,fold and tape . I leave the extra tabs long inside to give the box a little more support.


Voila....a simple box with endless gift possibilities! Here's a link to another box I've made before Sweet and Simple.


I'd like to offer some blog candy since it's my daughter's 5th birthday today!  WooHoo!  We're having her party at Chuck E. Cheese tonight...Yeah for my daughter....Bleeeeek for me!  



Become a follower and leave me a comment on any fun places you've had or been to for a birthday party.  I'll post a winner on November 8th. 

Thanks Rebecca for having me!
