Another batch of lunchbox notes

I am really enjoying making lunchbox notes. This is an initiative through our provincial foodbank called Harvest Manitoba. These little notes will be included in future meals for children in need. Harvest Manitoba has requested 16 000 notes for the school year. I find it to be a quick, easy yet important project to do. I wanted to get some of these completed before June so they can be distributed this spring.

Over the summer, I will start a new batch and I challenge you to do the same!

Northern Lights Christmas Card

I absolutely love how this card turned out. The northern lights have been so beautiful this year! The black outline is a Cricut cut from Design Space. I sized it for a slimline card and added cardstock and glitter cardstock in all the negative spaces. The Santa in the sky is the only christmas-y element.

Camper Christmas Card

Friends of ours have recently renovated an older camping trailer. It looks fabulous and hope they will love it on a card!

Santa Mug Card

Is thete anything more Christmas iconic than a Santa mug? I love them and they are quite popular right now. i found this cut file on Design Space and there are many options including snowmen, gingerbreadmen and elf cups.

I found this retro looking sentiment also on Dedign Space and thought it matched the kitschy mug.

Children's inspirational notes for Harvest Manitoba

One of my local food banks called Harvest Manitoba gives meals to children in need every Friday during the school year so they have food on the weekends. Along with the food, they give each child an inspirational note. This program, called Meals2Go requires approximately 16 000 notes for the year. I realized that I could easily make some notes to donate. I have now made a conscious effort to use the scrap paper sitting on my desk to make a note or 2 or 3.

These notes can be donated directly to Harvest or The Scrapbook Cottage, a local scrapbook store. This is a win-win. I get to play with paper and contribute to this amazing program!

Bathymetric map

Anyone else have unfinished projects from many years ago? This was one of mine.
I wanted to make a gift of a depth chart for a couple who love a particular lake in our province. West Hawk Lake is a part of their love story. To create this, I found a bathymetric map online of West Hawk Lake. I uploaded the map to Design Space and created cut files. It took some time to do all six layers. I sliced through each layer to create this and I used the write feature on my Cricut Maker to label the lake on the top layer. I love how it turned out and think it will look great in a frame.
Has anyone made a project like this in wood?
