Thanksgiving Tagged Tote

November starts tomorrow and it got me to thinking about Thanksgiving hostess gifts. I'm a firm believer that most of us can use a gift card or bottle of wine more than we can use more stuff so I went about creating a elegant looking Tagged Tote from Reverse Confetti that's perfect for gift card giving. 

Isn't it a pretty little tote? I dry embossed it after running it through the die cutter and then rubbed a white ink pad across it to make the embossed design stand out. Think of all the colors of card stock you could do this with. Imagine a pink one for a shower gift. 

You know what else? This little tote can be used over and over...something my environmental heart loves!

What's New Wedensday

It's a What's New Wednesday crafty share day on the Bella Blvd. blog where design team members create projects using the latest and greatest collections. Being that Halloween is just days away, I made my first card with Halloween Magic

This big heart die cut is part of Bella Blvd's Paper Pieces accents. They make putting a card together quick and easy...just a few small embellishments added to one is all you need. 

My next card was created with the Hello Autumn collection. 

A little burlap and a jute bow a rustic fall feeling to this project.

Thankful for You

It's the last week of October and Thanksgiving will be here real soon! I can almost smell the turkey and taste the pumpkin pie! And speaking of's one fine fellow found in Bella Blvd's Hello Autumn collection. 

I love this turkey's brightly colored feathers and pilgrim hat! To make him my focal point, I created a reverse die cut frame and leaf sprig accents to surround him with. Makes me look forward to Thanksgiving!

T.G.I.F! It's been a little while since I created something with the ultra adorable Tiny Tots collection from Bella Blvd. so I picked one of my favorite critters in the line to make a card with.  

I love this giraffe...he's just the cutest! He made his debut when the Baby Boy collection came out a couple years ago and I used every single image and chip accent of him! I was thrilled to see his return as part of the Tiny Tots line. I have a bit of a thing for giraffes. Have you ever seen the documentary Tall Blondes? Very interesting animals. I have a couple bronze giraffes that sit in our foyer and greet us each time we walk in the door. Here's to the giraffes! :)
