Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop-Grateful For You

Welcome Back to another Stampin' Up! 2014 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Be sure to join us as we travel around the world to see what inspiration and fun projects this international team has in store to share with you!

It's no secret that fall is my absolute favorite time of year! Especially since this is the season that we are reminded to give thanks for all we are blessed with and grateful for. . . though this is something I think should be done all year round. . . but with our busy lives, perhaps it is good that we have a special occasion set aside for us to make time to give thanks.

I am not a big decorator, SURPRISE! Though we have lived in our current home for 8 years now, it is still seemingly "empty" as far as decorations go. . . I am not big on lots of things to dust. But last year I did manage to make a very cute harvest banner with the Build a Banner Simply Created kit. Since I already have a cute banner to display, I decided to use the kit for something else. My friend Melody Hyde had a cute idea to sew two of the banners together to make a cute pocket, and I thought it was a very clever idea. . . so I went with it!

I used linen thread to sew the pieces together, then I decorated it with my For All Things stamp set. . . I just LOVE this set! I added some Autumn Wooden Elements and Blackberry Bliss Ribbon, then stuffed it full of yummies! This will make a perfect little something to hang on junior's door and surprise him on Thanksgiving morning. . .
. . . that is, if I can resist eating the yummies before then!

Let's go see what Cindy has been creating, shall we?!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop-Petite Cafe Gift Bags

Welcome back to this week's Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! This week we are sharing with you the details from our Facebook projects.

Make your Petite Cafe Gift Bags a bit fancier by die cutting a window into them! Simply place your thinlit inside of the bag before you sandwich it between the cutting mats and run it through your Big Shot.
After you die cut, use Fast Fuse to adhere a Window Sheet to the inside of the bag. Decorate, and you now have a super cute gift bag for friends and neighbors!
Let's go see the details on Cindy's project!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop-Seasonally Scattered

Hey There! Welcome Back to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop! Be sure to continue on the hop to see what Artisan's from around the world have to share this week!

Here is a simple card using Seasonally Scattered. 
I water-colored the background on watercolor cardstock, then on the foreground I embossed the "thanks" with gold embossing powder, cut out the letters so the watercolor background would show through, and then popped the panel up with some dimensionals. Very simple.

Let's go see what Cindy has been up to, shall we?
