Thanksgiving Tables

Here are a few images of my home ready for the Thanksgiving guests.
These are the place cards I made for everyone.  Each one is filled with 3 Hershey Nuggets wrapped with coordinating Designer Series Paper.  The ribbon is Copper Trim from the 2017 Holiday Catalog and the gem on the leaf is a Clear Faceted Gem colored with the new Copper Stampin' Blends.  It's a perfect match!

Here are my tables just before guests arrived.  We had a lovely day!  Each table was also decorated with die cut leaves in fall colors for guests to write down something for which they were thankful.  There were 22 total guests!

Block Party!

All ready for the Block Party! Class tomorrow.  Participants will make banners to hang on their decorative blocks and assemble them.  They could choose to put any greeting on the blocks they wish.  My first set said "Welcome."  The next one will say "Thankful."

Coneflowers with Delightful Daisy

Here I used the Delightful Daisy Bundle to create these Coneflowers.  The daisy image was stamped on the Delightful Daisy DSP and punched out with the matching punch.  Cut that flower in half, adhere together with Dimensionals and add a 1/2" circle punched out of Early Espresso cardstock that was run through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  Attach that to the center of your daisy and wha la!  You have made a Coneflower, albeit a rather uniquely colored one.  :)  This is a fun and simple card that offers lots of depth and interest!  Boldly contrasting colors of Tangerine Tango, Early Espresso and Whisper White with accents of Garden Green give this card a distinctly summer into fall feeling.

Another Block Party! Class

I'm considering offering another Block Party! Class because several people missed the first one and have asked about a second class. If you would like to join us in making this fun home decor project, let me know. I will be scheduling the date as soon as I get feedback from those who are interested.
Class fee is $25 for 7 blocks; additional blocks are $2 each. Class includes 7 blocks cut, sanded and painted; decorative nails; paper supplies cut and ready to assemble; and all tools & adhesives. Various colors and patterns available.
Banners are removable and can be customized to say whatever you wish. They can celebrate seasons, holidays, birthdays, family heritage, or anything you can imagine. . . Make a set for yourself or give as a gift!
Already completed the class and want to make another set of banners? Fee for replaceable banners is $15 for up to 10 banners. $1 for each additional banner.
