Thanksgiving Napkin Holder

I got this idea from Cricut design space website. Here’s a picture;

Supplies needed is cardstock of your choice and glue gun

1. You will need 5 pieces of the oval shape cut at 2 x 1 1/2 and score in the center for each one.
2. Glue one flap of the oval to another piece oval. See picture 2a how it would look glued together.
3. This is how it would look once you glued all three and continue gluing the other two ovals left.
4. Once glued together it would look like this.
5. You would need a pumpkin base cut at 2 x 2.
6. Glue down the oval shape pumpkins to the base.
Final part you would need a strip of cardstock or glitter cut at 1 1/2 x 6 and glue the base down.

Here are the cricut dimensions cuts
Strip: W:6 H: 1.3
Oval: W:1.9 H:1.4
Pumpkin Base: W: 2 H: 2.1

DIY: Halloween Costume

I had a request from my youngest daughter to create an ear, muzzle and a fur vest for her halloween costume. I said yes! Here is her sketch;

Here are the ears and muzzle. I pretty much recycle some type of foam packaging material and gave it a triangle and cone shape. I covered it up with some decorative trim fur in black all around.



I bought this at hobby lobby

Here is the faux fur vest I made;

I needed a template to cut out a vest, so I went into YouTube and came across this YouTuber name Tiona Chantel and had a video to make your own vest, it’s called How to make a Faux fur vest. It was the easiest thing ever. Go check it out for instructions in how to make your own template using your own clothes.

I bought everything else at the Spirit Halloween store using my 20% off.

Halloween Paper Wreath

I decided to create a wreath out of paper. I got this idea from Maymay Made It's youtube channel. Its called Paper Cone and Rosette Ornament. Here is the link for you to check it out: She really explains it very well.😊

I have this halloween paper pad from K&Company that I had purchased at Michael's a couple of years ago. Here is a picture of the paper pad called Spooktacular:
Supplies that are needed will be your choice of paper, glue gun and ribbon or twine.

I went ahead an used my cricut machine to cut out the circles. You'll need two 4 3/8" or 4.4 by 4.4(cricut measurements) to use as your base and you will be needing 32- 2"circles to create the cone and apply it on the bottom of the wreath and 18 more (2" circles) to apply on the top of the wreath. I didn't use the rosette on my wreath so I cut another 4 3/8" (4.4by4.4) circle and embossed it with the cuttlebug embossing folder called Plaid. I also cut a piece of white tulle to put in the front and added a title to it. I then ended up using yarn instead of ribbon or twine to attach it to the wreath in order for you to hang it.

Here is the completed project Halloween Wreath...

This is the front...
This is the back..

I've decided to hang this in my main entry way arch and added some pom poms next to it. The picture quality didn't come out good.

Check out my instagram: scrappidyashy to find out what I've used to make the pom pom.

"Happy" scrapbook page layout

I finally had the chance to take my disposable cameras to be develop at Walmart.. I can't believe that its been 10 years since I took these pictures. My baby Felicity is now 10 years old and she finally had the chance to see a few of  her baby pictures.

I used the Lisa Bearnson Anthology/Inspiration Scrapbook pages ready to just add pictures.

     I only added a smiley face to the bottom next to the word "Happy".

                    I added only the vellum saying "Cute as a bug" using
                          DCWV vellum quote stacks: baby & childhood

Lunch Box Swap

I was part of a Lunch and Paint box Swap that Bits-N-Pieces hosted. My partner was Dalia, here is my lunch box. I decorated using some Anna Griffin paper, which it had my partners favorite colors on it, "pink". I bling the front part of the lunch box and the back.
I added some die cuts from French Manor. I also heat emboss the top and some of the sides with black and pink embossing powder.

I also added metal letters and heat emboss with Pink powder and thick embossing glaze powder.
I really had a blast decorating this lunch box, which it was my first time decorating a lunch box swap... Here are the goodies I added inside the lunch box..some bling, flowers, papers, etc.
