Fun with Crates

The Cutting Cafe design team is sharing gift ideas with you this week using files from the Cutting Cafe. I chose to use the Fun with Crates Cutting File. Inside I inserted a box of candy and handmade dishcloth. Also behind the box that you can't see is some hot chocolate packets. I will add a candy cane to the box as well.

After cutting my crate box, I embossed it with a wood grain embossing folder and then distressed it with ink to look like wood.

Happy Thanksgiving Large Circle

We are creating with large word circles this week on the Cutting Cafe. I chose to create this 6 x 6 scrapbook page with my preemie granddaughter's feet, using Happy Thanksgiving Day Huge Circle Word printable file.

Halloween Scrapbook Pages for NICU

Back in September when I made THESE cute Teacup Mouse Kisses for the nurses in NICU, one of the nurses asked Kassy (my DIL) if I would be interested in making Halloween scrapbook pages for the doors of each NICU baby's room. I said yes and this turned into making Thanksgiving and Christmas ones as well. :)

The nurses are so good to the families in the NICU where my granddaughter is. On their own, they create scrapbook pages and take pictures of the babies and put them on the outside doors to their rooms. This is just one of MANY things they do to make something "normal"/special for the parents and babies.

I quick took these pics and then headed to see my granddaughter and kids and didn't view the pics first, so they aren't the best quality, but I have some friends who wanted to see what I created. I made 28 pages. If it says "babies", ghost footprints of multiples (twins or triplets) go on those pages and if it says "baby", footprints of one baby.
