SF-2022 October Blog Hop - Thankful for You!


Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration as we create projects that are Thankful for You!

 Loved making this card - the background is a layer of woven 3/4" strips of Distressed Gold Paper and Texture Chic DSP - they work so well together.  I used the Leaves from the Leaf Label & Amber Gems combo pack, ran them through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the falling leaves Embossing Folder, and sponged them with Pumpkin Pie ink and Cajun Craze ink.

I strung those leaves on fibers I pulled from the Silver Threaded Twine for a real natural look, and added some of the Amber gems for bling.  You could also use the linen thread for this, but the fibers are a little more wavy and rustic.  Finished the inside with a few strips of the DSP.

I am "so grateful" for you - for all my customers and for my life.  This is just such a wonderful time of year as we enter the season of thanks.  So my other project is this adorable basket - I've had it sitting on my counter filled with tea bags.

For this I used the Rustic Harvest 12x12" DSP and Tombow glue to cover the slats and ends of a little wooden crate (these are very inexpensive at Craft and Dollar stores) - this could be used for so many things, note paper, tea, candy and more.  The bottom is slats to - so I added a coordinating piece of DSP to the bottom of the inside so things don't fall through.

Love these, the are so fun to make, easy and fast so I can have one for each season.

Hope you enjoyed these fun projects and the Thankfulness they represent

I'll have to look for those little crates for next year's craft show! I know they would be a great sell. Love the woven background of the card.
