Thanksgiving Gift Idea

Hi crafty friends, so happy you have stopped by!

If you stopped by my blog a few days ago, I shared with you all that I participated in a couple of Christmas craft fairs! It was my first time, and let me tell you, it was an awesome experience. I met a lot of people and actually made a few friends!

So with that said, I am sharing with you my first The Crafty Pickle Design Team post! I had a few nugget tins left over from my fairs (8 to be exact, lol) and I thought that I could redesign them for a few Thanksgiving gifts for a few family members and friends!

I used both CTMH Cartridges (Artiste and Art Philosophy) to cut all of my leaves at 2 inches and used some watercolors to give them so color. I wrapped my nugget tin with some craft paper (cutting that at 2 inches) and tied some brown twine. I then glued all of my leaves down and added some TCP November Flair to the center where all of my leaves met and finished it off with some fabulous TCP Autumn Sequins Mix! Hope you enjoyed my gift idea!

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to stop by the The Crafty Pickle Etsy Shop for some awesome goodies!

Supplies used:
Watercolor Paper
Brown Twine

First off, thank you for joining us and we hope you are having fun! With Thanksgiving totally being next week I thought a card would be nice to share with you (there is still time to mail one, lol)!

I started by creating my own rosette simply by cutting a strip of CTMH Cranberry Cardstock at 2 1/2 inches and used a border punch to one side and scored between each scallop. I used the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge to cut the middle design at 1 3/4 and stamped it with a matching CTMH stamp set "Holiday Tags" using CTMH Sunset Ink Pad and topped it off with some TCP November Flair. Using the same stamp set I stamped my sentiment with some CTMH Cocoa Ink.

I finished my card with some brown twine and added some beautiful TCP Autumn Sequins Mix

I hope you enjoyed my card!

Birthday Gift Card Holder

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I've neglected my blog for a few weeks to prepare for my first craft fair! AHHH! It happened this passed weekend and I was nervous, excited, and ready! The turn out was nice and as crazy as it sounds I signed up for another one that will be happening this weekend!

Here's a look at my set up!

I also wanted to share another project that I submitted for the Design Team Call that The Crafty Pickle had a few months back. If you haven't visited TCP Etsy Shop, PLEEEESE do so, there are tons of great flair and sequins in stock!

Here is the gift card holder I made...

I used CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut my envelope and tag (pg 37 in the handbook) and the balloon (pg 70 in the handbook). As you can see in this project I used my flair as a balloon to add some fun to the envelope.

Hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by!

"Hello Baby"

Hi! Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made for the Design Team Call that The Crafty Pickle had a few months ago!

To be honest it was a first for me to use flair, why...I have no idea, lol!

I altered the flair a little by adding the word "BABY" with some StazOn Ink. I used Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge to cut the frame and stamped in the image with CTMH Perfect Fit- Frames 2 Flair! I did add a few sequins and some twine to finish off the card!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for another project!
