Last week, I saw these cute little turkey place cards made by Monika Davis. I loved them so much that I just had to try a couple. They use some of the awesome Plaid Tidings patterned paper from Stampin' Up! and a variety of punches and dies. They are quick and easy to make and would be a great craft to make with kids (or on your own!) to help create a festive Thanksgiving table. You'll find the link to a video below and the complete cutting dimensions and supply list. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.

Thank you for stopping by to see my handstamped projects today! If you haven't already, I hope you'll jump back to the beginning and hop through all of the blogs in the Stampin' Friends blog hop. There are lots of great Thank You projects this month!
When I first started the On Y Go! Stampng blog back in June, my sister asked me if I would share scrapbook ideas. Of course I said "Yes!" And yet, three months later, today is my first scrapbook-centered post.
Scrapbooking was my first papercrafting adventure. I love to create beautiful things, and scrapbooking gave me a reason to create and keep what I'd made. Scrapbooking serves a long-term purpose of allowing me to preserve my memories and have an inviting way to share them with my kids, relatives, and friends. When I started stamping, I eventually moved more heavily into cards, but scrapbooking still holds a special place in my heart.
However, except for the school albums I finished for each of my kids when they graduated high school, I haven't done much scrapbooking in recent years. I've been overwhelmed by the idea of organizing all my old boxes of photos and figuring out where I left off. And, since getting a smartphone with a decent camera, I haven't been doing a very good job of saving and organizing my digital photos either. It's a little overwhelming!
So, I decided I just needed to jump into chronicling some recent events. I pulled my vacation photos from this summer and my photos from last Christmas, and I ordered prints from Shutterfly. Then I realized, it's fall and I really wanted to do a fall page. Not wanting to place another Shutterfly order for a handful of prints, I printed these myself on copy paper and will replace them after I make my next print order.
This summer, my sister passed down her Cricut which she had gotten as a handy-me-down from my Mom. I finally pulled it out and used it for the first time to create the title with the Printing 101 cartridge. I cut the letters from the See a Silhouette background paper and I cut the shadow from Mossy Meadow cardstock. I trimmed pieces of the honeycomb background paper in the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper pack and added it as texture on the corners and center of the pages.
I had a lot of fun making this two page spread and remembering this fun trip to the orchard with my grown-up kiddo. Now on to getting those vacation and Christmas photos onto pages!
