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!

Too cute to spook

It's officially spooky season! Fang-tastic! Here's a layout inspired by my cute dog's bandana.

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?

Happy Canada Day 2023!

I love Canada Day and I love using my Cricut Maker. I used a Design Space map of Canada and filled in all the cuts so I could use printed paper. I love how it turned out. I think you could use any kind of paper for this but I used a Creative Memories pack of Canada paper called Canadian Pride. The stickers are from the same fabulous collection.
Please help yourself to the design.
Canada Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here's a quick side-edge shaker card I made for the hubs. If you want to make your own, here's my Design Space link:

February challenge

Hello and welcome! This month, I am running a little challenge group on Facebook to attempt a scrapbooking layout, card or any other crafty project per day in February. So far, I'm liking the pressure to complete all of those ideas and half-done scrapbooking layouts sitting on my desk.

Anyone else interested in joining?

Personalized lantern cards

I really enjoy making Christmas cards that are more personal than ones you buy in a store. I love that with my Cricut and a printer I can easily do that. Last year, I made paper ornaments. This year, family names on a lantern.

I also LOVE seeing my paper ornaments on my friends and family's Christmas trees! It warms my crafty heart.
