"Craft & Crop" at the Bird House Sept. 28

Our next event will be Sept. 28 from 6:30 12 midnight. Here are the projects we will be working on. I was stuck between "Back to school" or "Autumn" theme so I did both. Our pages will be back to school and our craft and card will be Autumn. Here are the pages.

I printed all of the words and quotes from my computer and framed all of them. I used my Cricut Cartridges, Locker Talk, page 47 at 10" for the stack of books, "My World" page 96 at 7" for the globe. The apple was from "Doodlecharm page 118 at 3 1/2". "Speaking of School" page 29 at 7" for standing books one reddish brown, then at 5" with blue, and then at 9" one brown and one gray. The rulers also at 5" from page 30.

The quote I found from my favorite book of all, The Bible.



These pages were so much fun to make. I hope you enjoy them.
Pumpkin Centerpiece

Here is the craft that we will be making. This is a Pumpkin centerpiece and you can put a flame less candle inside.
I found this pattern a couple of years ago and re-created it to share with you. The strips are card stock and the leaves where cut with Cricut Projects Cartridge "Flower Shoppe" I got the brown grape vine wire from the floral dept. at Jo-Ann's Fabric & Crafts. and twisted it around a pencil. it took two large brads to hold it together at the top and bottom. Oh, I added a piece of Autumn ribbon too.


OK, here is the autumn card for Sept.

Autumn Card Instructions.

Start with a 4 ¼” X 5 1/2” card base, mine was orange.

Cut a 2” X 4 ¾” strip of patterned paper, cut a solid color at 2 ¼” X 5” to frame it with, glue it long side down the left side of the card. Then find a picture for your theme, I found a sweet tree with falling leaves and cut it at 3 ½” X 2 ½” and then frame it with three different solid colors. Then center it to the left side of the card on top of the patterned strip. Then choose a short quote and frame it with a solid color and place it towards the bottom of card going across both pieces you already glued down. Cut a solid color for the inside of the card at 4’ X 5 “ . Glue your message with a solid frame across the top of card and write a personal message of your own below that.

I can't wait to see you all again and try out those dishes you will bring. I am making a new recipe I found just for you.
