A Very Happy Thanksgiving to You and Your Families!

I thought today’s card and video were perfect for Thanksgiving!

The stamp set I used for today’s technique; “Painting with the Journey Color Splash Pencils” is the ATS stamp Harvest. I also paired it with the Hello Fall stamp set for the sentiment.

The embossing folder I used is the FREE Bloom Benefit fold Fall Text Embossing Folder.

I made the background pop using Oatmeal Cookie ink on the embossed background. I then splatter on some Dark Roast and Citrus Cooler Silks.

Here is the video for today’s technique:

Double Pocket Die Not Just For Cards!

Share Button

Monday, November 13, 2017

After I created my Christmas Double Pocket Card/Gift Card Holder; I began to think how else I could use it. With Thanksgiving just around the corner and the little Turkey from the Holiday Clips stamp set just begging me to use him; I thought a napkin/utensil holder would be adorable. What a great addition to the table! So cute and if you don’t want the sentiment create a little name banner so it can serve 2 purposes: a name plate and utensil holder!

The Fall Fest Prints go perfectly with your Thanksgiving napkins.

The little turkey is so darn cute all colored up with the Journey Burst Pencils. Punch him out and mat onto a scallop circle; create your banner and you have a super cute Thanksgiving project in no time!

The sentiment is from the Hello Fall stamp set. I addd a little Candy drop to the sentiment banner.

Here is your shopping list and the Double Pocket Die is on sale and the sale price will show up in your shopping cart:

A Very Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!

We are celebrating at home this year and my parents are coming over for dinner.

I had just one request from my Mom and that was can we make cards after dinner. Well duh Yeah! She wants Birthday cards and Anniversary cards so we will be mass producing some cards for her to take down to Texas with them. They go every year to Mission, Texas for the Winter.

Speaking of Texas you are probably wondering how our trip went. If you tuned in last month to my Live Event then I told you my husband, oldest son (Will) and I were heading to Dallas TX for a week. Will wants to move there; he is sick of Michigan winters and has always wanted to live in Texas.

Well 4 days before we were set to leave I saw a lump on the back of Will’s dogs leg. He brought her to the vet the next day and it is cancer. Will bought Cassie when he was 18 and he’s 27 now so yes Cassie is getting old but she is Will’s baby. Cassie had surgery 2 day’s before we were set to leave; surgery went well but they could not get all the cancer. Now he has a tough decision on what treatments to take all are very expensive and luckily it is a very slow growing cancer.

While all this was going on I found out that my identity was stollen and I spent two days on the phone trying to get everything taken care of. What a mess and scary as well.

Well that’s not all they say everything happens in 3’s right? Well Dean came home from school sick.

Yup, there was no way we were getting on that plane; just too many reason’s why we shouldn’t go.

We did end up going but only for 2 days so I could attend the Stampin’ Up! event and Bill and Will got to drive around to the different towns in the Dallas area so Will could at least get a feel for the area he’s looking at.

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball. Sometimes you get more than one curve ball at a time.

This is when you need to reflect on the good and be thankful for all that God has given you. We have our health, we have our family and friends and life is good even with a curve ball thrown in now and then.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Blessings to You and Your Family!

This is another card for my upcoming Card Buffet class. Class participants can choose which cards they would like to make and how many of each.

I love the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper because not only is it pretty paper but it coordinates so well with the Acorny Thank You and the Thankful Forest Friends stamp sets.

Speaking of Stamp Sets make sure to check back on Monday because all Stamp Sets from any of the catalogs will be ON SALE 15% off! More details on Monday so make sure to check back. While you wait for Monday start making up your wish list and remember Christmas is coming. 🙂

Today’s card base is Early Espresso and a little Daffodil Delight and Into the Woods DSP.

I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the sentiment and matted it onto an Early Espresso Deco Label Framelit.

A piece of Frayed Burlap Ribbon tied in a bow and attached with a glue dot.

Also I’ve had quite a few emails regarding my last Live Event. Below is the question most asked and then my explanation.

Question:
Will you be putting the video up on YouTube again and giving out the password for the PDF files for the Tent Topper with a twist cards?

Answer:
I posted the class last month on YouTube as well as giving away the Password to unlock the PDF files and videos on my blog for 2 reasons.

#1 to promote my new Photo Gallery on my blog and have everyone try it out to see how it works.
#2 to show my appreciation to those who place orders and tune in to my live events.

When the new catalogs come out I host an Open House and offer free make and takes and show different tips and techniques for my local customer’s. I wanted to find a way to do this with my Online customers as well so this was my way of doing that.

I’m not sure if I will do this type of event quarterly or possibly twice a year.

It does take a lot of time and even money to prep, prepare, and hold the live events; not only my time but my husband’s as well. I cannot afford to give everything away every month; my stamping business needs to sustain itself as that is the agreement my husband and I had when I became a demonstrator that I would or could not use household income to purchase my stamping supplies.

I hope you understand my position and understand that I can’t always give away my time and ideas.

My Tuesday’s Tips & Techniques videos are free every Tuesday and are also on YouTube. As well as my daily blog post and sometimes the directions are given for cards as well and you can find them in the photo gallery.

Thanks for checking out my blog and the Live Events; your orders are greatly appreciated.
