Paper Vineyard Yankee Doodles project

Hello all,

Sorry I have been MIA for a while. I have no good excuse other than I was having issues with my camera and it took me some time to get that fixed. All fixed now though.

This week, the design team for Paper Vineyard Scrapbook Store was tasked with making a project using patriotic items from the Yankee Doodles line from We R Memory Keepers. I had some wood blocks that I have purchased from Stampin Up quite a while ago and this seemed like the perfect theme to make a project using them.I used the Yankee Doodles paper on each of the blocks, cut the letters with the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art Cricut cartridge, punched stars with my Mini Star punch from Creative Memories, glued them using my Xyron 850 and sealed it all with Mod Podge Satin. There are words using all 6 sides of the blocks.Please let me know what you think. I love hearing what other crafty people think! I hope everyone has a great week.


  1. Wow, what a fabulous project. Perfect for Memorial day coming up!


  2. This is amazing.. I just love it.. What a great job.. I just may have to check into getting that cartidge.

  3. Marijo - I love these blocks. The logistics of getting all the letters to make the words is amazing. We have the perfect spot in our home to showcase and I'm thinking how fun it would be to create sight words that I could rotate for my Grandson. I'm so inspired, I'll be looking for some of my own. Fantastic project.

  4. Is it cheating that I just saw these in person and KNOW how really great they are in real life??? Anyone jealous??? hahahahahhahaha! GREAT project Marijo!!!
