Giving Thanks!

Welcome to the October 2011 Pals Blog Hop! This month is all about “giving thanks” whether it be with Thank You cards or Thanksgiving inspired cards. You’ve likely arrived here from Leah O’Brien’s blog at Leah’s Stampin’ Corner and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by! I am stop #7 on today’s hop, but if you need to see a lineup, please see the list at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up provided us with the absolute PERFECT products this year for our Fall and Thanksgiving themed projects. I am so in love with the Spice Cake Suite found in the 2011 Holiday Mini that I’m already panicking about what I’m going to do when it’s not available anymore! Thankfully it’s been made available in My Digital Studio, so I never have to worry about it going away forever!

This month in my club meeting, I wanted to feature the Spice Cake Suite along with the FABULOUS stamp sets we have to celebrate Fall & Thanksgiving. My customers all loved these products as much as I do and couldn’t wait to order their own. If you fall in love with them as well and want to order your own, please visit my online store.

Now onto the fabulous feast …


This first project features the Gently Falling stamp set, Spice Cake DSP, and the Spice Cake Fabric all from the Holiday Mini. I am so thankful for such perfectly coordinating products!!


This project features older stamp sets with newer accessories. We used the Day of Gratitude and En Francais stamp sets which can be found in the IB&C along with the Spice Cake DSP from the Holiday Mini and the Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon which is new in the catalog this year! I’m grateful for new products that beautifully compliment tried and true products from the past!!


This fun fold card not only featured our beautiful products that the other cards used, but it also featured the use of our FABULOUS Simply Scored Tool which premiered in the Holiday Mini catalog. This wonderful tool made it so easy to score up a bunch of these accordion fold cards! I’m so thankful for fun and fabulous tools that make creating my projects easier and more fun!

When I saw the Leaves of a Tree a la carte stamp in the back of the Holiday Mini, I immediately fell in love with it and knew I would be purchasing it and using it my creations. Though this beautiful single image stamp looks best when it is colored, it is also gorgeous stamped in a single color. For our coloring method we used blender pens and ink straight from the ink pads. I am grateful that the DSP made it so easy to decide which colors to use to make the best looking image to coordinate with my card!!


This card is not a project we made in club, but one I made ahead of time to show to my club customers. This is a card that features not only beautifully coordinated papers, colors, inks, and fabrics but also a plethora of tools that are made to work together to create beautiful works of art. Here I used our Simply Scored Tool, Big Shot Dies, Circle Scissor Plus, Circle punches, and dimensionals to get a beautifully layered card. I am so thankful for all of my fun tools that make my creations so enjoyable to put together!

So there you have it. Those are some of my Fall/Thanksgiving creations using fun and fabulous coordinating products and tools exclusive to Stampin’ Up. I’m so glad you stopped by to visit today!

Please leave me a comment to let me know you were here and I would love to hear what you’re most thankful for as well!
