Hello everyone! And welcome back for Day 4 of my Guest Designer week. I have been having the best time ever! And I can't believe it's almost over!!! Today I have two more quick and easy projects for you.
First up, I made this fun "Happy Thanksgiving" door hanger for the front door to welcome guests as they come over for dinner:
I got this simple wooden sign at Michaels for $1. It has some silly phrase on the other side that I knew I would never use, but I bought it anyway and just turned it around and decorated the back. You could also easily paint over it if you wanted to. All of the different colors of patterned cardstock for this are from the Bo Bunny ~ Double Dots Collection.
Here is another little cutie cut from the Create a Critter 2 ~ Cricut Cartridge. His sweet eyes are from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Bear Facial Features stamp set. I did the accents for the eyes with a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen. All of the beautiful leaves are cut with the leaf dies in the My Creative Time ~ Piles of Smiles stamp set.
The acorn is also cut from the Create A Critter 2 ~ Cricut Cartridge. And once again, the pretty little leaves are cut with dies from the My Creative Time ~ Piles of Smiles stamp set.
The "Happy Thanksgiving" sentiment is cut from the Elmo & Friends Holiday ~ Cricut Cartridge. I used pop dots for some dimension. And the beautiful bow is made with Celebrate It ~ Harvest Ribbon.
The second project is a simple table topper that I plan to put either on the food table or perhaps the coffee table:
This is about as simple as you can get. The base is from the Simple Stories ~ Harvest Lane Collection (it's all one piece). Then I cut the "Happy Thanksgiving" again, along with its shadow from the Elmo & Friends Holiday ~ Cricut Cartridge. The only thing I did to this was totally bling it out with a bunch of gems from my stash. That's it! Super super easy!
I hope you like both of these little projects today. Sometimes, I think it's important to keep some projects simple so that we can remember to keep the focus on what's really important...spending time with our loved ones and eating a bunch of really really good food!!!! LOL ;)
Ok everyone, how about a giveaway? Or how about two giveaways? Since it's Thanksgiving next week, I have the Simply Scarecrow ~ Circut Cartridge & the My Creative Time ~ Piles of Smiles stamp set. Woot! Woot!
