Paper Cutz Challenge #117

Hello Fellow Crafters:

Hope you are doing well and getting lots of crafting done.  I have been busy but not as busy as I need to be in my craft room. But I did want to share with you and invite you to join us over at Paper Cutz Challenge for a fun challenge this week. 

"Let's Talk Turkey!" Make a card, LO or craft project for Thanksgiving, using a stamped, digital stamp or Cricut cut image of a Turkey . Use any colors you'd like.

I would like to share my card with you all.  You are all so great and love to view your blogs and your great projects.  Here is my card:

I used the cartridge Simply Charmed.  I cut the turkey at 3 1/2 inches and the Happy Thanksgiving at 1 inch.  I added some orange and brownish gold ribbon.  I added two brads on the orange ribbon and three
embellishments on the bottom of the brownish gold ribbon and three embellishment along the side.
I went a bit off the beaten path and made my turkey with some pink paisley paper; I thought that my turkey turned out sweet.  But different. Hope that you like it.

Now I would love to see you project using a turkey over at PCC.  Have a great day.

Paper Cutz Challenge #116

Hello  Crafters,

What a great challenge this week at PCC, where I am so fortunately to be on the DT with some extremely talented crafters.   And a leader ,Mary,  who is the best. 
The challenge this week is:  "Let's Talk Turkey!" Make a card, LO or craft project for Thanksgiving, using a stamped, digital stamp or Cricut cut image of a Turkey . Use any colors you'd like.

For this weeks challenge I started making a paper bag mini album.  Which is something new for me.  So I am learning as I make this album which I plan on sending to my Hubby's biological mother that we met just a few years ago.  I am hoping to learn more their Thanksgiving traditions.  I am using one section of the album for my challenge this week.

Here is my challenge project:

I use paper that my niece Bree had given me.  She is go great at picking out wonderful and cool papers.
I used the cartridge From My Kitchen for the loaf of bread, the pie and the salt and pepper shaker.
The turkey is from the cartridge Doddle charms.
There is a pull out to put one of her favorite recipes on.

This is a pic of one of the inserts for additional pictures or more recipes.
I am hoping that the more I make of these albums the better they get.  If you have anything to add to help me along the way please let me know.  I am always open for advise.

This was a fun and challenging challenge for me.  But I am trying to work more outside my comfort area and learn more new fun way to express my craftiness.

I hope to see your projects this week at Paper Cutz Challlenge
