Harvesting Memories Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Harvesting Memories Blog Hop. If you started at the beginning you should have came from Carla's blog. If you are starting with me  please go to Lisa's blog to see all the fabulous projects.

For my project I created a luminary. I picked up some flameless candles at Dollar Tree and I love making luminaries for different seasons, maybe because my kids LOVE candles and I don’t mind the flameless candles.

I used several files from Scraptastical Kreations to create the luminary. The main section of the luminary is a rectangle with the label tag from "Label it! Tag it! Frame it!" placed on top. I welded a rectangle to the bottom of the tag so it does look a little different than what’s in the set. I used the leaves from “The Perfect Fall” an embossing mat and my embossing tool to create the vellum.   
The turkey is from "Turkey time", and the sunflower is from "Fancy flowers", flower #2

Earlier this month I created these cute little name card holders to place on our table, they were the inspiration for my luminary. I thought the table needed a centerpiece to compliment the name card holders.

Holiday Planner

Today's project is a Holiday Planner/ organizer. The organizer is 6 x 9. The perfect size to hold all your lists, cards, tags and other items to make the Holidays a little less hectic.  The little mouse on the cover is a paper piecing file from Scraptastical Kreations called Merry Mice-mas. The Holiday Planner title and mat I created in my program. 

For these pages I created the things to do file and calendar myself. The recipes title uses pieces from Merry Mice-mas and Chop til you drop, you can find both sets at Scraptastical Kreations. I added the word recipes on top and created the mat. 

The mailbox is my favorite page of the book, I just love how it turned out. The mailbox and the card came from the Dear Santa file, also from Scraptastical Kreations. 

 For these 2 pages I used the gift box from Merry Mice-mas and the scissors on the coupons and ads title came from an image I found online.

The little Rudolph on the tag came from Gift Card holder 1 at Scraptastical Kreations  

I am entering this in the Anything goes challenge over at
