I wanted to write a blog post just for Thanksgiving. I feel bad that each year Thanksgiving gets lost in the shuffle between Halloween and Christmas. So….Thanksgiving this is for you. LOL!
I am having the Thanksgiving festivities at my house this year and in attendance will be my husband and I, our two boys Brian and Ian, and Ian’s girlfriend Hailey, my parents and my uncle. Not huge like some families but enough to make a fun time and a lot of dishes.
After my candy buffet for Halloween I feel another centerpiece is in order. What do you think?
I used my Cricut and the Doodlecharms cartridge to cut out all of the leaves and acorns. I used the Shades of Autumn and the Forever Family lines. They are so perfect for this type of décor. The colors are pretty and I just love the hounds tooth design on the reverse side of my favorite brown paper from Forever Family.
After I cut out the leaves I inked the edges of all of them and punched holes in the stems. Then I threaded the leaves onto a piece of twine cut to length to fit around the center piece. I tied the twine around and then positioned the leaves where I liked them. The smaller leaves and acorns are placed on with glue dots because the stem was too small to punch. I used battery powered wedding lights from Hobby Lobby and some fall foliage to go in the center piece to help hide the lights and the battery power box.
I am going to have a candle in the green glass dish during Thanksgiving supper and probably put candy or something in the other one. For now I placed a small pumpkin in it and I think it looks pretty good too.
I have the perfect napkin rings that have a small slice on the top for a place card. I used Bickley Script font to print the names onto the beautiful paper. I cut them to be 2 ¾ x 1 ½ and inked the edges. Then I attached a small leaf, acorn and a little knot of twine to each one. I think they turned out really fun!
I hope you take the time to enjoy your Thanksgiving! I had fun making these and know I will enjoy them throughout the holiday. Then…onto Christmas décor!
Until next time,
I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but around here, Santa always shows up just after Thanksgiving. If you have plans to visit him at the local mall, wouldn’t it be nice to have a layout ready and waiting?
You can create this super simple layout with two pieces of paper from Moxxie’s Party at the Pole collection and the coordinating Die Cuts.
1. Start with a sheet of Santa’s Crew. Using a craft knife, cut from behind Mrs. Claus on the bottom left - following the snowbank behind the little girl elf and the snowman – all the way to the star on top of the Christmas tree on the bottom right. This creates a slit for your photo. (Mine is 5” x 7”)
2. From the Party at the Pole Die Cut sheet, add one of the candy cane striped poles to the right side of the layout, so that it tucks behind the Christmas tree. Next add the die cut that looks like a stack of presents, so that it overlaps the edge of the photo.
3. The harlequin patterned oval die cut is the perfect background for a simple title. I used white Thickers from American Crafts to spell out “Santa” and accented it with one of the holly & berry die cuts.
4. Finally, you need to cut a tag from Toy Shoppe, top it with a gingham ribbon, and tuck it behind your photo for journaling.
That’s all there is to it. You are done!
Unless…you are like me and you always have several pictures you want to scrap!
No problem! With a few minor changes, there is plenty of room on this layout for more pictures– especially if you print them out as wallets. Here is an alternate version:
If you have created any “visit with Santa” layouts using Party at the Pole, I hope you will share them on our Facebook page. We would really love to see them.
Thanks for stopping by! Susie
I have a very dear friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She suddenly found herself taking several different medications, each of which came with its own list of potential side effects. She asked for a journal so that she could track her symptoms every day. I had one at home which I brought back to the hospital the next morning, but I added a simple, handmade item to cheer and encourage her: a bookmark using Moxxie’s Road to Recovery collection.
I traced a 3”x 6.25” tag onto a piece of the collection’s Journey paper, positioning it so that I captured the words “my journey” as shown in this picture:
I reinforced the top with a circle punched from the same paper, flipping it over to reveal the grey side before I created a hole with my Crop-A-Dile. Next, I assembled a few charms onto a Tim Holtz Ideology Charm Clip which I had in my stash, and tied it onto the top of the tag with coordinating baker’s twine.
I decorated the reverse side by following along the curved design of the paper to fussy cut a section which included the text “my road to recovery”, then trimmed it to fit the tag. The floral circle at the top is from the Road to Recovery Die Cuts.
To finish off the bookmark I added strip journaling with one of my favorite inspirational quotes. It is from A.A. Milne. Christopher Robin tells Winnie the Pooh,”Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
I am not sure about everyone else, but in Emmetsburg, Iowa we got school pictures back last week. I am always excited about getting them. My parents always want one and sometimes by brother and sister want them as well. I had just gotten the School Zone line from Moxxie and wanted to start documenting these annual pictures. There is a paper for each year beginning with Preschool in this line so you can document each school picture or school year. There is a large 12x12 sheet of stickers and an entire rub-on pack which also includes a rub-on for each year. It is really a fun line!
I have always been told to start with the present and work your way back when scrapbooking, so this is what I am doing. He is a junior in High School this year so I started with the current year. Next you will see his ninth grade (freshman) year. I thought I had most of these pictures put all together but obviously I am having trouble finding his tenth year. Well, when I find the packet I can scrap the page, right?
Junior year - -eleventh grade
This year Brian decided to give the 5x7 picture to his girlfriend without consulting me first. I was a little mad at him but decided to make the best of it. I added in his list of classes and this helped fill in around the tiny pictures. Plus the big circle stickers and cut outs from other papers add a lot of pizzazz!
Freshman year – ninth grade
On the ninth grade page I really wanted to attempt to cluster. My fellow Muse, Patti is an awesome cluster-er (is that a word? Not sure) and I wanted to try. What do you think? I didn’t get too fancy but these papers already have a corner design so to cluster is easy peasy!
I hope you enjoyed Brian’s school pictures. I do have and older son and need to get busy on his pictures as well. Remember, pick an event or a school year and get to work. You will be gaining scrapbooking ground in no time!
Until next time,
