365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

My Thanksgiving Blessings Blog Hop Mini Album

Welcome to 365 Days Of Cricut and the MY THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Susan at Its me Susan P, you're in the right place!

If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to INKING IT UP CRAZY and start at the beginning. Go to Inking it Up Crazy.

The theme of this blog hop is MY THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS. Each blog has created a project centered around the blessings they have had this past year. Be sure to visit each blog for inspiration and fun BLOG CANDY.

***Warning Picture Heavy***
I decided to make 1st EVER mini album for our hop, I am going to put up to 8 pics of my son and I, I am going to put pics of us and our pumpkins pre-carved since this is not a Halloween album, Thanksgiving pics, Thanksgiving food pics Yum! Also, I will take a pic of us in our front yard next to our tree once the leaves turn red.  I named my album "Autumn Blessings" I have been wanting to make a mini for years but I have been so chicken to make one, I don't know why I just thought they were very intimidating, then about 6 weeks ago I saw all of these 4x4 inch Coaster sets on clearance at Michael's for only .20 cents! I thought I can do it, so I did. I am extremely happy with the end result, I love it so much I can't stop looking at it, and of course my 3 year old son loves it, he thinks it's his and he keeps saying "Wow" "Wow' "Wow"! I love him so much he is my #1 fan! I cheated on my Cricut and did this entire mini WITHOUT MY CRICUT!! I know I feel so Guilty LOL!!

Page 1: I stamped 2 images and I embossed one with gold embossing powder, the flowers are Recollections and Primas, the leaf is from the jewlery section at Michaels, the small yellow butterfly charm is a cell phone charm that I bought from ebay. "Autumn" is a brad. "Blessings" is a metal embellishment from Michael's I added pearls to it.

Lots and Lots of ribbon, just the way I invisioned my 1st mini! I know it may seem messy, but I love it so much  and I am obsessed with ribbon, so I got to use a lot of my stash!

On every page I used my Zutter Distrezz it all to destress the sides and I inked all of the edges with Walnut Stain and Frayed Burlap Distress ink. Love them!

I thought this view was just stunning! You can see the top page and also my distress work.
Page 2 and 3: Left side I put cute scarecrow ribbon and Glimmer Mist. Right side glimmer mist, cut paisley shape from patterned paper, flowers, sticker and pearls....oooh la la I love pearls and all things girly!
 Page 4 and 5: Left page I stamped mesh background stamp, put red yard on the side, cut the scarecrow from my paper stack adhered to cereal box to make a tag, added a flower eyelet with my Crop a dile. Right side put a sticker and something from a fake flower bouqet from the $1 store
 Continuing....Left side I sprayed the flower w/ Glimmer mist added a very large gem, stamped the leaf and added ink to my tag.
 Page 6 and 7: Left side sprayed 2 colors of Glimmer Mist and added a Sticker. Right side Did some stampinkg, added ribbon and plenty of turkey and leaf stickers, also added a flower and brad. I made that leaf charm.
 Close up of my handmade charm. It's a Tim Holtz tag/charm from Michael's added twine, cut the leaf from patt. paper and glued together with Glossy Accents.
 Page 8 and 9: I didn't do too much here because i wanted to put a large pic on the left side. I just added a flower, pearl and ribbon. The Turkey paper  was in my paper stack.
 Page 10 and 11: Left side sprayed with 3 colors of Glimmer mist (my only3), the border with the leaves and acorns are a piece of ribbon. Right side is just stickers. For this page I plan on puttig a pic of our Thanksgiving meal.

Page 12 and 13: Left side is a pumpkin ribbon, plan on putting our pic here with out pumpkins, Right side is a silk flower also from the $1 store inked it up, added a cloth thype brad, pumpkin sticker, journaling tag, ribbon and another embellishment that I made with  a cereal box. I just put paper that says "Pick Your Own Pumpkin" inked it and on the back put pumpkin stickers...see below
 Here's my embellishmet and plus you can see the pretty ribbon and the pretty leaf paper.
Page 14 and 15: Left side added a paper clip, a circle punch out shape from my Mind's eye (I bought at a LSS) it's a sheet of paper with die cut punch outs. I put 2 leaf stickers, bling and leaf brads which I love. I plan on doing my journaling on the circle. Right side I left plain so i can put a pic.
 Here's what it looks like when you swivel it open. I can add a bonus pic here behind the circle.
Page 16 last page: This was also an easy page just cut it out from my patt. paper stack ready to go! I also did more inking here. and you can also see wha the ribbons look like from the back side.
 BLOG CANDY!!! Yep, I decided to make a mini album kit for one lucky winner!! I tried to give you everything that I used to make the mini, but some items I did not have duplicates of. You will recieve one 8 piece THICK chipboard coaster set, 2 large binder rings, pretty  paper from the Autum Splendor Stack (Michael's), so much ribbon for you, brads, flowers, all the charms I used. If you win and you decided to make this mini I would love to see your version of my mini, have fun creating!

Jamie said...

This is definitely a WOW moment. It's wonderful and inspiring!

My dog Lucky likes to lay under my feet and behave. My other dog Dallas likes to pull paper out of the trash and eat it, along with ribbon and any other scrap he can get. He becomes a Hoover in my craft room. They are both my baby boys though.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Michele's Scrapy Creations said...

Love your mini! can't believe it's your first. Great job on it. I have got my cat, Snicker, taking a nap on my layout out few years back. Ever since then, she has the love for papers any kind she is right there ready to lay on it whether you're trying to read, cut, or whatever. my sweet cat I miss you!

Cricut Chick said...

This is Amazing!

One time when my dog was a little puppy, he used to want to lay up on my craft table at the end while I was working...(can you say separation anxiety?)lol... Anyway I went to cut my next image and couldn't find my cutting mat. Guess who was using it for a bed? Yep, Tank he was laying on it. It scared him when he tried to stand up and was stuck to it like a mouse on a sticky trap. I felt sooooo bad for him but it was FUNNY! He never did that again:) Thanks for helping me remember that day:)

Vanessa said...

I love your mini album. My sis did one this month and I loved it. I've loved all the ones along the hop. I must admit they are a little intimidating but I'm going to give it a go and make one for my son for Christmas. Something just for him to put all his special moments in. I don't have any animals but I always say that my 2 year old daughter is like a puppy. I LOVE shoes especially my high heels and not to long ago I walked in on her bitting off the button on one of my favorite pairs. Hmmmm! :)), Vanessa

Jamie said...

Rhonda Miller said...

What a great album. TFS.

My dog likes to climb on my lap in the middle of my coloring. I guess she figures she needs the attention as much as my markers.

Pink Cricut said...

Marianne - Fiskateer #6701 said...

Wowsers! Your mini is great! I didn't mind your post being picture heavy at all! To me that is the best part of looking at blogs! We had dogs for lots of years. I miss having one, so I enjoyed seeing your little one with your cuttlebug. That was so cute!

A Scrap Above said...

OMG! This is freaking amazing!!!!!! I LOVE this mini, I make them all the time, but they dont look THIS GOOD!!! The detail and colors are out of this world... Simply love it..

Karelj said...

Your mini is darling...I can't believe it's your first one! I have a stack of those coasters (like you, I bought them...but now I know what to do with them!) I have a dog and two cats...the dog is getting old, so she doesn't do too much funny stuff any more--unless you count snoring--but, ever since she was a puppy, she's imagined herself as a lap dog. Since she's a black lab, she's a bit delusional, but we let her try! I'm now a folllower, so I'm thankful for you! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. ksjennings at gmail dot com

Kathy said...

Beautiful mini album! I'm a new follower and I love you blog! My cat passed away a few years ago, but he loved to curl up on my chair, with or without me in it! I miss him, just not all the hair he'd leave in my craft room! Thanks for sharing!

Carol E. said...

For your first mini you did an amazing job. We have a dog and he usually is out and about playing with the kids when I am crafting or sleeping in his bed.

Scrapnatic said...

Amazing!!! I love it!! It looks like a lot of work! Thanks for sharing!

Sheree said...

Your mini is absolutely gorgeous! I have wondered if the distress tool is hard to use. I am sick...because I had about 40 coasters...did not know what to do with them and threw them away! Darn! Now, here I am, 75 miles from te nearest craft store...
I have four dogs who are always where I am...I finally had to get a futon bed for the craft room so I could craft...and they could have the bed so I would not trip! It is amazing how our animals run our lives...I cannot imagine what I would do without mine!
I hope you have a great Turkey Day and I would love to win your mini album kit!

Laura Lee said...

Your album is gorgeous!!!
My kittens love to sleep in my circut box.. I have kept it and they just crawl in and curl up..

abusybee - DoubleClick Connections said...

Scrappy Heartz said...

Awesome, Amazing job for your first album!! I think you're pulling our leg....lol!! I have a Jack Russell, Harley Softail Davidson; mutt Princess Abagail;cat- Houdini, cat-Josie (who is on her last leg...not sure how much longer she will be with us =( )When I go to my room I usually have a dog on each side of my chair protecting me (just in case something attacks me) Josie hasn't been making it down there to much BUT Houdini makes up for her. He has to swat at my paper while it goes through my Cricut, tries to unravel my ribbon hanging on the wall and of course has to be on the counter watching my every move. (They all try to fit in the half-bath also) I wouldn't have it any other way though. Thank goodness my kids are much older or we'd never fit in there!!

Thanks for sharing and the chance to win your GREAT album kit!!

Debbie Chapman

Sharon said...

Oh Sandra! What an awesomely beautiful mini album!!!! I love love love it! The ribbons are great and all the pages are just perfect! Your Boots is just adorable! Our Newton spends a great deal of time in my craft room with me. He likes to pull the stuff out of the recycle box. He knows to leave my scrap bin alone. Mostly he chews on his toys while laying between my feet. Our girls don't come in there often. When they do, they just look around and go back out. :)

Charlotte said...

Your mini album is exquisite! There is so much work and love in it. I know you will be so happy to have all the photos in it. A real treasure.
Thank you for sharing it with us. I so hope to win the kit to make one. Thanks for the great blog hop and Happy Thanksgiving!!

Charlotte said...

Well I got so caught up in your pretty book that when I commented on your blog I forgot to tell you about my dogs. They both are very small, (thank goodness) and both feel they must sit right next to me as I am creating a project. but, I love every minute of it. You can see them in my photo.

Sandee McIntyre said...

I love what you have done to this mini album. Great ideas!! My puppy thinks he needs to be in my lap or the trashcan to get into my scraps that have been thrown away. Thank you for sharing!

Heather said...

Beautiful!!!! TFS
bhoward at kci dot net

Cathy said...

All I can say is....WOW! Your book is awesome. My cat loves the chair by my scrapbooking table. More than a few times I get up to do something or get something and when I come back she is their on the chair. I can't tell you how many times I have sat down on her if I wasn't paying attention. LOL

Vicki said...

Great mini album. I don't let my cats in the craft room since they want to be part of everything I do (except hold still when I want to take their pictures.)

quilt4fun2 said...

My cat usually is on my lap but often will sit on anything I am trying to look at. You mini turned out great and supplies to make one is a great gift. Thank You for being in the hop and for a chance to win great prizes.

Melissa said...

Seriously? Your first ever? You did an AMAZING job! Maybe I too could make one as pretty if all the stuff I needed to use was handed over to me...although I'm not holding my breath! lol


AmyJRockstar said...

Hi there, more than ANYTHING I would LOVE to win this. You put so much work into this album and it paid off! It is just my style and I was wishing I could have one soooooooo bad, then I scrolled down and read you were giving away the kit and I just about woke my husband up by jumping out of bed!!!! I would LOVE to try this out. I've never done a mini album either and this is just sooo cool! I'm a new follower. Please check out my blog too! XO ~ Amy Jo

P.S. Funniest thing I've caught my dog doing in my craft area is, the way she watches the Cricut. She has a bit of an obsession like her mama. LOL Her ears tilt, and her head jerks back, it's hilarious!

Lindy said...

OMG....your mini is gorgeous; just stunning. I'm like you I love minis but I've never tried one. I think they are intimidating. TFS

Hugs ~ Lindy

Patti Ross said...

I LOVE THIS!!! I am so hoping I win this kit!
I'm a yorkie person...Kodi is 16 and was a rescue. Rascal is 5 and my shorky, Trixie (shitzu/yorkie mix) is also a rescue and 2 years old. They all need to come downstairs to my studio with me...as they are with me 24/7. Kodi always sleeps at my feet and Trixie and Rascal like being in my lap or sitting on their own chairs at the table. The craziest thing I ever had them do, was...well...let's just say that Trixie will be having puppies December 19th!!! Kodi is still blushing!

What a beautiful album! Such a lot of work!
Great job. My Frankie doesn't like the basement so he never comes to see me when I am crafting!:(

jenni said...

That is just gorgeous! I can't believe that is your first mini album.
Thanks so much for sharing!

jenni said...

I forgot to add that my cat, Jack is not allowed in my craft room because he loves to eat plastic. It is like having a 2 yr old that I have to watch constantly!

forpahl5 said...

My dog is an outside dog(with heated dog house and bowls and running area)so he does not get to come into my craft space! I love your book!


just-cut-n-up said...

OOOOH! Lovin the mini! Love all the embelishments. I currently don't have any pets inside the home. Used to have some kitties that liked my yarn. Sometimes would have streamers throughout the house!

JD said...

Beautiful mini! I picked up some of those 20 cent coasters, too... to actually use as coasters on my craft desk (so much better than a piece of paper - LoL). I would never have thought to use them for a mini! Thanks for the great idea!!

~ JD ~

Angie said...

Wow what a Beautiful mini album. I just love the details. I love it all. all the embellies! iam a follower now. thanks for the chance to win.

Auntie Em said...

Great work on your beautiful, creative album. The swivel out page is a genius!
We don't have a pet now but we did pet sit out nieces dog for awhile. He was a huge black beasty but he was such a wimp. He would run in and flop his big head on top of me if we had a thunderstorm in the night, drools and all but then he would fall back asleep with his head on the bed after the storm passed.
Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for sharing! :o)

I LOVE your mini album..SO MUCH WORK!! You do have creative talent. I guess I need to have a better trained eye at the dollar store! LOL. I have cat Phoebe who thinks that when I sit at my craft table...it's time for her to get on my lap..every time I try and take a picture of her she just sits there and looks at the camera..I know she's thinking "how do you do that smile thing"!

You mini album is amazing, and your little dog is adorable. I've never had a problem with my Shiloh getting into stuff in my craft space, but he is a complete nosy nat and has to be near me and sniff and see just about everything I do. he mostly stays curled up by me feet or in the chair next to me, but don't even let me think about getting something out of a drawer or off a shelf without his giving it a once over, lol.
