Trick or Treat

Thought I'd share these cute buckets filled with all the fixings for Carmeled Apples. I put them together to give as Visiting Teaching gifts. I was going to make the apples myself, but alas, time got the best of me. I think the families will have fun creating them for FHE next week!

I found the buckets at Target $1 spot (although they were $2.50).
Cute, simple and fun!

Fall Invites

I was asked a few weeks ago to create some invitations for a dinner in honor of the Bishopric Wives. They wanted a fall theme and I found this adorable paper that just fit the bill. The layered flowers were made using bunches (pulled apart) from Michael's and I Cricut cut the yellow, curled and inked them to give them dimension.
They were super easy and could be easily adapted for any occasion. I'll definitely keep these in mind for future use.

I created 45 of these. A funny story about them (well, I can look back and laugh about it now anyway).
After they were all finished, I had them in my car to deliver when I passed by the Stake Center the dinner will be held. I noticed the street sign and there was only one "L". I had spelled it with 2. I panicked and gently tore off the vellum sheets to replace them with the corrected version (these were glued on). I even had to run across town to the scrapbook store and purchase more vellum.
Before I printed on the new vellum I wanted to double check the spelling online. I looked it up on Map Quest and believe it or not....it was spelled with 2 "L"s.
So I quickly looked up the stake website to see what they said and they confirmed the spelling with 2 "L"s.
I couldn't believe it. So I just glued the original vellum back on doubling my work time on this simple project.
Lesson Learned: Double check BEFORE printing the first time!!!

Note Cards in Envelope

I found a pattern for a darling note card holder and just had to try it out. I made the pink one quite a while ago, but made a couple more today. I'm going to teach it to the RS card class the end of the month. They are great gift ideas for teachers and friends.
This is the outside all tied up....Here is inside after opening.....
This shows all the contents... (the circle says "many thanks" or "Just a note"I found the instructions from someone on Split Coast Stampers. It's a great site for ideas.

So I've been too busy organizing and cleaning to make cards yet....hopefully tomorrow

National Card Making Day

What better day to start a crafting blog than on National Cardmaking Day.
I'm hoping to get many cards made this weekend, but for now I'll just post a project I've been working on for a RS Super Saturday.
It's a Tin Recipe Box
I've been busy ordering and finding enough supplies to make 30 of these. I just love this (or any) paper from Crate Paper . I had to search many websites to find enough for this project.
More pics to come later.
