Happy Thanksgiving!

The holidays are a hectic time yet so enjoyable! I've made some thanksgiving cards and treat holders but haven't had the time to post them as I was busy preparing for company. These are the ways I've used the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge to make the colorful turkeys. Thanks to fellow CTMH consultant Connie Saulsbury for sharing the directions for these cute turkeys. Visit her blog here for details. I made a big batch of them, some of which I made cards with but the majority of them I attached an easel stand to the back and put them in with customer orders that I delivered last week. Everyone loved them! Here are some photos:







Yesterday I used my new Gypsy to figure the size to make the treat holder from page 22 of the Art Philosophy cricut booklet. (Font Layer shift) It was a lot of fun to just look at it on the screen and then connect it to the expression machine and just cut it. I measured an Andes Mint at 1 x 1.25 and played with the size on the gypsy. The first one I cut was the correct size and fit 2 Andes mints. (I think it would be 4.5" without using the gypsy). I used old B sized wooden CTMH stamps to decorate and closed the treat box with raffia. I made 12 of these and put them at each guest's place setting. They were a big hit!



I plan to do the same thing with Christmas papers next month. Thanks for visiting my blog and happy holidays to all!

  1. This turkey is fantastic! I'm sooooo itching to go into my room, turn on my Cricut, and give it a try. Thank you for the inspiration! :-) Happy Thanksgiving!
