Fall Milk Carton Caddy

Hi friends,
I hope you're having a wonderful day! I made this adorable little milk carton swap package to participate with the ladies at the Loaded Envelope Galore & More group over on Facebook.
In this project I include some of the required goodies, as well as those made just for fun to share with one of the ladies in the group.

I began with making this adorable caddy with my Silhouette Cameo and papers from DCWV. They were simple to assemble, and the base came together quite easily also with my Tonic Studios dies. I also embellished the top with acrylic and paper flowers, and made small bows with blue vintage seam binding. How adorable!

You may think this is a repeat picture, but of you look closer, you'll notice that one side has a raccoon holding an acorn, the other has a girlier version holding a coffee cup. Pumpkin spice lattes anyone?!

I thought the colors were so sweet together, that I also adorned the side with some acorns and toadstools that glimmer with little Nuvo Drops. I cut those out with my Cricut :).

As a little extra, I added this large Maple leaf embellishment perfect for a wreath or the front of a mini album. It also has edges in glimmery copper, and the little raccoon is again sipping some coffee! 

I topped it off with a small yellow flower and red button tied with twine, and added shine with Ranger Enamel.

These little embellishments came together perfectly, and will be hard to part with. They are so stinkin' cute!! I made a separate video showing you all the details on these adorable rosettes. 

We were asked to make pumpkins, and quite honestly, they are a challenge for me, so I gave them my own personal twist: A banner!! 
I used several leaves that I hand colored, as well as wood pieces, acorns, flowers, and my trusty Cricut to cut out the letters in a wood-like font. I love it!!

Here is a picture of some store bought burlap flowers, and some handmade flowers I made using my Cameo and some coordinating papers. These will fit inside one of the cartons too!

Here is a picture of the tag I also made for this swap. I used it to top off some goodies.
Not pictured are the adorable ribbons I am also including in this package for a total of four gifts and some extras of course. I hope the recipient enjoys all the love I put into this project. It is always fun to share our gratitude with others. Today, I thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoy these projects, leave a comment, and subscribe to my youtube channel for more inspiration if you haven't already done so.

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
