Got Turkey??? November 13, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 4:24 pm

With Thanksgiving two weeks away, I figured we should have some turkey fun.  I’ve got some turkey ideas and a small giveway.  Check this out…




How cute are these turkey place cards????  This is a kit by K&Company that I picked up at Target.  The kit makes 12 place cards.  It only takes about 5 minutes to make one turkey.  They make cute decorations too!  I have an extra kit if anyone wants it.  Just leave a comment and I will let Leah pick the winner on Monday.

P.S.  I think the turkey’s face looks a little like Beeker from the Muppets (I know I’m dating myself there).


Here’s a cute card made with Stampin’ Up goodies.  The ruffles are made with the Stampin Up scalloped circle punch – one of my favorite pieces.  I was going to attempt to make one with JB Soup products but I just didn’t have time…maybe before Thanksgiving.  If you look close at the gourd on the right you can see some teeth marks – guess who put them there?


Emily and the girls made some “hand” turkeys where you trace their hands for the feathers and attach them to a turkey body…cute!

Where’s my belly button?

Another layout I did earlier this year.  The majority of the paper and letters are from Basic Grey; the large graph letters are from Making Memories; the “picture perfect” 3-D button is from K&Company.

This was a time when Kami liked to lift up her shirt and show you her belly.  I love the colors in the layout. 

Thanks for looking!
