Hello everyone! Happy Thanksgiving! I know it isn’t the actual day, but I love the attitude of gratitude that everyone adopts during the month of November! We have so many reasons to be thankful, I thought it would be fun to create a project that would help us share that for which we are thankful! Simply die cut a pile of leaves and let your family or guests write what they are thankful for on each leaf. Adhere the finished leaves to the tree and see how full it becomes! Multitudes of gratitude!
My project whole idea started as a thankful tree. Noticing many of them on Pinterest, I knew I could create one with my own twist using the cut file, Autumn Tree. It’s great that I can re-size my digital cut files to whatever dimensions my project calls for! I then passed patterned paper from Bundled Up, called Chevron, through my Silhouette Cameo.
The tree was placed on a sheet of gorgeous patterned paper from Warm & Cozy, called Winter Wishes (the wood plank design).
From the A Perfect Autumn collection, I used the 6×6 pad to create all the leaves. The size of the Designer Dies in the set, Trees had the perfect shape and size I was looking for. Each of the leaves got their edges inked with a distressing ink, and a little bit of crumpling to add dimension.
To finish my décor piece off, I added chipboard words from A Perfect Autumn Chipboard. It needed something to help it stand out more, so I headed back to my Silhouette to see what other cut files I could find. Carta Bella Banners was the answer, so after re-sizing my image, I passed Journaling cards from A Perfect Autumn through my Silhouette Cameo.
Here is to sharing all we have to be thankful for!
Good day everyone! With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I wanted to share these cute little turkey place cards I made with the A Perfect Autumn collection. The rich colors are indeed a perfect combination for fall and are a great match with one of my favorite cardstocks – kraft cardstock. And I love that the font of the alpha on the Element Stickers is so unique! These little turkeys are great because they can be put on so many different things too- from napkin rings to favor boxes to flameless candles!
I wanted to get creative and somehow make a fun little turkey using different die cut shapes. While looking through my metal die stash, I looked for shapes that could be used in place of the turkey’s feathers, body, and feet. For the body, I used a puffy tree top from the Carta Bella Designer Dies Trees Set. I also used a tree trunk die from the Carta Bella Designer Dies Trees Set for the feet. And the large feather from the Echo Park Feathers Die Set was of course perfect for the turkey’s feathers!
The tree trunk with the branches die was perfect for little turkey feet! I simply just first die cut the tree trunks using cardstock and then hand trimmed off the top portion of the tree. Do you see how the small top portion then became my turkey feet!? I bent the piece so that I could adhere the small leg portion to the body and the feet would stick out. I must admit that the feet are my favorite part!
Who can resist a turkey this cute? I am going to start a tradition of using these little turkey place cards at the Thanksgiving table every year! My current yearly tradition is to bring the green bean casserole to my mother-in-law’s house. And while everyone does look forward to the casserole, I bet they would love for me to start bringing my little turkey place cards with the cute feet every year!
Thanks for joining us today! I hope I inspired you to get creative with your dies!

If you are anything like me family when it comes to Thanksgiving, you are on the “Family Rotation”. While, I love time with my husband’s family, I do love the years that I get to spend time with my sisters. During this time, there are usually fun pictures, laughs and reminiscing. It’s not often that we get all of us together at once, but we can usually count on Thanksgiving to give us that time together. Guiseppa here and I want to share with you my “Sisters” layout and the technique I used.
To create this layout, I used Carta Bella’s “A Perfect Autumn” Collection in combination with the Designer Dies Grateful Die/Stamp Set and Designer Dies Thankful Blessing 4 x 6 Stamp. One of my favorite things to do with stamps is to heat emboss with them. I did that here with the leaves from these to stamps set. I love the raised look it gives especially when using textured cardstock.
I also did the same with this cute little deer.
To give my leaf clusters bit of a different look, I also cut out leaves from the “Falling Leaves” patterned paper and added them in.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have wonderful time creating and scrapbooking those wonderful Thanksgiving memories.

Hello everyone! Kimberly here today to share some great ideas for stamping with Designer Stamps set, All Bundled Up!
With a few supplies, you can really add depth and dimension to your next winter card.
I started by stamping the snowman from All Bundled Up onto white cardstock.
I used several different colors of ink, so I could cut out the pieces.
After adhering the cut out pieces to the snowman, I used color pencils to add more dimension. A darker line of orange was added to the bottom of his nose. Pale blue shadows to the edges of the snowman. And a plaid look was added to the hat and scarf with a couple colors of red.
For the sentiment, I stamped it onto white cardstock with brown ink. Once dry, I trimmed it from the cardstock, using the edges of the stamped image as a guideline.
The sentiment was layered over a sticker trimmed to size from Bundled Up Elements Stickers.
Behind the snowman is a piece of patterned paper from the Bundled Up 6×6 pad, but I added a bit more depth with the snowflake stamps from All Bundled Up. I stamped the larger snowflake in blue ink and the smaller in white. With those beautiful flecks of white already in the patterned paper, this looks fantastic!
A snowman just wouldn’t be complete without a few snowbanks, so I hand cut the curves in the Bundled Up 6×6 patterned paper and inked the edges with blue ink.
While I am not ready to make real snowmen yet, I sure had fun decorating this cute guy! Hope you are inspired to step-up your next stamped image!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a trio of cards using the fun and fabulous Bundled Up collection! I love this collection because it just makes me happy! How can anyone resist the cute snowman or the sweet mittens? And don’t even get me started on the penguin, which is my absolute favorite element of this collection! I LOVE that the Designer Die & Stamp Set that coordinates with Bundled Up also includes that little penguin guy!
I am happy that I was able to make multiples of the penguin and the flourish. I can make as many penguins as I want and use them on as many cards as I want using the Designer Die & Stamp Set. I can’t wait to make more cute little penguins and use them on my Christmas gift tags!
Once I had made a number of penguins and flourishes, I then worked on putting my cards together. This collection is great for card making and all of the elements work perfectly together! The first thing I notice about a collection is it’s color palette- and this one is fabulous! I love how the red, white, and country blue work together with the accents of chocolate brown! Perfect for a snowy day!
There are two things I just love about this card. First, I love that the blue polka dot patterned paper reminds me of snow! And I love the fact that I cut the “bundled up” sentiment from the front of the 6×6 paper pad. Don’t ever be afraid to use every bit of a collection that you love- including the packaging! And of course, I topped it off with that sweet little penguin guy!
Isn’t this little penguin guy the cutest? Don’t you just want to squeeze him tight?
Thanks for joining us today! I hope you will give the Designer Dies & Stamps a try on your next card!
