Nov HopWelcome to the November Pals Blog Hop, we are thankful you stopped by.  This month we are showcasing projects that show our thanks, including both thank you and Thanksgiving themed projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Susan Lankford at Stamp and Create With Susan, #19 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing projects.

Letterpress Winter, Fall FestI like to make Fall cards, and they are great for Thanksgiving. Since it is the beginning of the holiday season, I decided that I would use the Season’s Greetings sentiment from the Letterpress Winter stamp set, so that it can be displayed throughout the holidays. Brushed Gold cardstock on Mossy Meadow was chosen for the color scheme. The Brushed Gold was outlined with the cute leaf stamp from Fall Fest. I trimmed the Mossy Meadow cardstock that is layered under the sentiment with the Rotary Trimmer Small Scallop Blade. Doesn’t it give a nice little detail to the layer? I am still in love with the Venetian Crochet Trim and layered it with the Gold 1/8″ Ribbon and topped it all off with a pretty bow made from Mossy Meadow 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon with some Autumn Wooden Elements touched up with Soft Suede marker and sealed with Mod Podge for a little shimmer.

As I thought about Thanksgiving and the idea that so many of us get together with our families or friends, it occurredSeasonally Scattered, Apothecary Accents to me that a little coordinating container might be appropriate. I set out to make something that was good enough for a little gift and then decided that it would be great to make it functional as well. So I stamped my sentiment, using Daubers for a two-tone effect, then paper-pierced around it after cutting it with the Apothecary Accents framelit. The container was made from 9″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Brushed Gold cardstock. I found the middle of the paper and laid the Apothecary Accents piece onto top and pierced it so the holes would go all the way through. The bottom of the bag was made with a Mossy Meadow 4″ x 4″ piece of cardstock that was scored at 1″ all the way around and cut on each corner in order to form the bottom. Sticky strip was laid in the area along the bottom of the sides and then laid up against the bottom piece. Once the bottom was attached, the sides were adhered together. Ribbon was added to the top and bottom, a double looped bow made from Venetian Crochet trim, along with streamers of Gold Sequin Trim and Autumn Wooden Elements hung with Linen Thread. The little detail on the acorn is a gold sequin topped with a rhinestone. The functional part of this little gift container is that a tea light can be put inside so that the paper piercing can be seen. The sad part is that this cute little container was admired so much by my little kitty during the middle of the night that it didn’t stand a chance of survival! I will remember next time to put anything with danglies well out of her reach! I am just thankful that I got my photos of it before she got to it!
