Paper Pumpkins

We hope that you are enjoying a blessed Thanksgiving time with your family & friends.

If you are anything like me, your house is lacking in the way of home decor.  Guiseppa here and I'm going to be honest, I'd much rather make scrapbooking projects than making home decor for my house.  Well, I decided to fix that with this project.  Have a look at my cute paper pumpkins!

I made two of these little cuties, one slightly larger than the other and they are going to adorn my scrapbooking room.  As you can see, I used the Give Thanks Collection to make my pumpkins.  For the larger one, I stamped a cute owl using the Clear Acrylic Stamps (also from this collection) and made a little tag with cardstock and the  Phrase Stickers.  I also dressed it up by adding some die cut leaves cut from my Silhouette Cameo.  To top it off, I added a ribbon bow.  I used Imaginisce's I-Magicut to cut my ribbon so that it would not ever fray.

I did the same thing with the smaller pumpkin, but left the stamped image out, just to make it look a little different.

I love how these turned out, in fact, I may make more of them.  I think this project was a win win situation because I got some cute decor and I got to play with paper.  How have you been using the Give Thanks Collection?  It's perfect for all those Fall and Thanksgiving projects.  Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Until next time!

Thankful layout

Love the playfulness of this layout created by design team member Stephanie.

Hi everyone! It's Stephanie, from paperANDi. I have a Thanksgiving inspired layout to share with you today featuring one of Imaginisce's latest collection, "Give Thanks"!

I started out with a white solid base for my background. Using Imaginisce's milk paints, I mixed and diluted the paints with water to create a watercolor effect. Then, I used a large watercolor paint brush and swirled the diluted paints in a circle right in the center of my page and outwards towards the edges of my page. 

"Give Thanks" collection topped it all off with some wash tapes, and Imaginisce's hot rocks.

  I hope you'll give this layout a try, and make sure you check out Imaginisce's full collection here: "Give Thanks" collection.

Fall Days

Thanksgiving is a few days aways and this week our DT will be sharing a few more amazing creations with you.  Today we have this incredible layout by DT member Suzanna.

Fall Days with Imaginisce

Hi there Imaginisce fans! Suzanna popping in today to share with you a fall themed layout which I created using the Give Thanks collection.

There are so many fun embellisments that are a part of this collection!! This layout has die cuts, puffy stickers, enamel dots, wood buttons and word stickers on it. Embellisments are a great way to support a theme or build a scene on your crafting projects.

When I'm creating layouts and have extras, such as the leaves in the top right of the picture, I always save the extras with the collection. And look how handy that came in! They work just perfectly with this layout as well!

Thanksgiving is not just about the turkey but the people with whom you celebrate and thankfulness, gratitude. This layout celebrates my family and these 3 people for whom I am SO thankful. Every Thanksgiving we celebrate one another and how grateful we are to be together, for our health and happiness.

Thanks for stopping in today! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Give Thanks

We have many things in life to be thankful for.
Documenting those on your layouts is a great reminder of what you're thankful  and design team member Marcia has done a stunning job with our Give Thanks collection.

'Give Thanks'

Wow, Only one more week until Thanksgiving here in the USA. This year I have so much to be grateful for. I have a wonderful family including a new son-in-law. We have a beautiful spacious home that we are currently sharing with the newlyweds so they can save up some money to buy their own house. We are all relatively healthy. 

Since my photo was taken in the fall, I wanted to create a background of colorful leaves. 

When I was ready to add embellishments, the Die Cuts, Phrase Stickers, Wood Buttons, and Enamel Dots from the Give Thanks collection were perfect! I used the Imaginisce i-Rock to add some metallic hearts for the finishing touch.

Thankful Gift Bags

OH wow!! WE love these gift bags.  What a perfect way to say thank you and add some little goodies inside along with a note of thanks!!

Monique Liedtke

Hi everyone! For today's project I chose to create 6 little gift bags with Imaginisce's Give Thanks collection, which I want to use on our dinner table for Thanksgiving. I decorated the bags and added the names so I can also use them as name plates. I want to put a little something in the bags, like a mint chocolate to have with the coffee we always drink right after dinner and add a little personal wish.

I used a die set from American Crafts to create the bags and decorated them with die-cuts, phrase stickers, sticker-stackers, puffy stickers and enamel dots from Imaginisce's Give Thanks collection. Here're some detail photos:

And on the back of the gift bags I added a little phrase sticker as well:

Aren't they cute?! 

To create the bows I used a fork and a piece of ribbon and followed the instructions I found here on Pinterest. Of course I used Imaginisce's "I-Magicut", the ribbon cutter and sealer to make sure all the bows had nice smooth ends: 

The I-Magicut tool is so simple to use: just place your ribbon inside, close the top and press the button a few seconds so the thin metal wire inside the tool heats up and cuts through the ribbon and sealing it at the same time:

And this is what I had in mind for our table setting. The little bow adds a nice finishing touch, don't you agree? 

And here they all are once again:

Imaginisce: patterned paper, die-cuts, puffy stickers, sticker stackers, phrase stickers, enamel dots (Give Thanks); American Crafts: Shimelle die-set. Tools: Imaginisce I-Magicut.

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today! I hope you'll have a fabulous Thanksgiving!
