Peachy Keen Challenge 3-D Objects :: Potluck Fun huh?
I made these fun little food labels for my mom's pies - YUM!!!
The pie image is from the Just Because Cricut Cartridge & that sweet face is from the newest Peachy release PKSC-21

I added my newest obsession - Sequins!

Some jute twine and a little doodling.

Placed them on their picks and they are all ready for their pies :)

Craftin Desert Divas Guest Designer "Autumn" Linky Party

Guest Designer photo CDD_GUEST-DES-Linky-Party_zps096caca2.gif

Hi Everyone! 

I am super excited to be a guest designer over at Craftin Desert Divas. Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!! This linky party theme this week is "Autumn"  and boy do we have some GREAT sponsors this week. 

Cardz TV- Stamp set of choice
Robins Nest - $10 gift card
KaDoodle Bug Designs - $15 gift card

The more you link up, the better chance you have to win.  Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

So here is what I came up with!

I created an Autumn card and some place cards for the Thanksgiving table.
The card is an A2 and all the paper is from a Recollections Simple Autumn Stack.
Leaves - MCT Die Cut
Button - MM
Twine - MM
Machine Stitched

The place cards are my favorite, they were made using the MCT 3x3 Trifold card die.  I simply folded it in different sections to create a triangular shape so that it would lay flat on a table. You will need to trim a bit off the end in order for it to fit properly.

Next I adhered some double sided sticky tape to the back. I embellished the name card with ribbon & Die cuts. I left the label die cut blank but you could easily print and then die cut for a more tailored look.
Ribbon - Little Scrap Pieces
Leaves - My Creative Time
Label - My Creative Time 

I sure hope you enjoyed my project today and do hope you will come and join us this week at Craftin Desert Divas.
