Lots of Crumbs


I wanted to share a few projects I made or received at convention….and they all seemed to made from something Crumb Cake!  It seemed to be the color of choice!  There are a lot of photos, so let’s get started!  Feel free to zip right through!

This was my gift from my roomie, Nance!  Of course, it was filled with some goodies, but they’re long gone!  I just love the gold embossing on the vellum window:


My upline, Pennie, gave me a little card and this cute notebook (I think that SU made that stamp “yippee skippee” just for her!!!!):


Another little journal, this was one of our make & take projects….I did this one at home, and it features Kinda Eclectic:


This is a take-out box from the Holiday mini, along with a tag made from a new set called Seasonally Scattered:



And a 4x4 gift box made with the new Gift Box Punch Board; I actually made this one while sitting in my hotel room, using a piece of 12x12 Under the Tree Specialty Paper; it is a little heavier than regular DP, which makes it perfect for making boxes!!  And it’s got cute designs on both sides!  I added the tag and decorations once I got home; they’re from the set Amazing Birthday!


Here are closeups of the decorations:



Finally, we made this little set of notecards and holder, created from a gift card holder:



Thanks for checking in today!  And be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

Cassidy helped me make spaghetti sauce and stuffed pepper casserole this week:



She uses a plastic lettuce knife to cut the peppers and tomatoes, and she’s pretty darn good at it!  And she insisted on adding her own artwork to the top of the casserole before it went into the freezer!


I know it’s a person, but not sure what is in her hand, LOL!

Thanks for sharing these great creations from convention. I really like that journal featuring Kinda Eclectic and the note cards & holder. I'd love to know how you did that one.
It's always fun to see Cassidy helping you in the kitchen.

My Grand-daughter drew just like that too! As they get older, the stick body will form! Then the arms and legs will grow out of
that! What am I sayin! I still do stick people!!!!

If your garden is anything like ours, it has been a good year for peppers! Cassidy is quite the adorable little homemaker.
