Tom Turkey (Thanksgiving) Layout

Abode Photoshop Elements 12

A quick layout using Tom Turkey for main featured piece.  The grunge frame and ribbon are brushes from the brush section in Adobe Photoshop Elements; and the pie, rolling pin and pumpkins from Cool Eats Scrapbook Kit.

Thank you for visiting with me today, and have happy crafting day.

Cups and Saucer Plate painted with Sharpies - SBC Simply Homemade Linky Party

This is different project for me to create, but to keep my creative juices flowing while in El Paso, Texas, I was directed to this Pinterest site by my daughter-in-law and thought it would be a cool project to work on, especially with Christmas coming up here real soon. 

(Click on the Pinterest link above and will direct you to the Pinterest website) or at Darling Doodles Designs

Making a trip to the local Dollar Tree store I purchased three white cups and a deep saucer plate and created with colored sharpies the following:

I'm not sure if I will add some type of sentiment to the sides of the saucer plate or just leave as is but for right now I'm leaving as is.  Once I colored in my design, we baked the item in oven at 450 degrees for 30 minutes.  (Actually two of the cups and plate was in 350 degree oven but any more projects will be in 450 degree because the color will fade with washings).  

The photo of the third cup does not show the design very much - it's a heart centered on the front with "Scrap Mama' as a sentiment.  The middle cup is my idea of abstract art which will be a Christmas gift for a friend.  The first cup is for a cup for my sister who loves to pull weeds for relaxation!

Only real expensive item in this project is the Sharpie markers, the plate and cups a $1.00 each at the Dollar Tree (if you're lucky enough to have one in your town.  Where I live, there is not a Dollar Tree store, but will check Dollar General and Family Dollar for the cups/plates for future projects.)

 Thanks for stopping by today, and have a happy crafting type of day.

Easel Card with Drawer Challenge #34

Time for another challenge at Scrapbook Blessings Club and this 2-week challenge is Easel Card with Box Drawer.  This actually was to be for the present challenge but my card was the WRONG format, as you can see at Scrapbook Blessings Club. 

The video I used to create this project is here which I found very easy to create.  The image I used was a freebie from

that I had in my files to use for challenges like this.  The paper for the box from my personal stash, the inside paper in the box is printed from SilhouetteAmerica online store along with the wordart used on the inside of the easel card.  I believe I used my Bic Mark It markers for coloring; and the pumpkin was print and cut using my Silhouette Cameo print and cut option.
