Grateful for YOU - August PTI Blog Hop


 


 
This month's inspiration is all about autumn patterns, textures & textiles. I took my inspiration from the blue, mustard, and burlap.  I started working with a shipping tag and then the ideas started flowing for a Thanksgiving tabletop. I hope you like what you see. I had a great time making everything.


I re-purposed the photo cube I made for Stamp-a-faire as a place card holder. There are 3 elements - a place card, journal card to jot what you are grateful for and a little turkey for cute! A felt leaf is tied to the bottom.


The napkin ring is burlap and jute wrapped around the napkin with the grateful tag tied on. I added a couple of felt die cut leaves to complete the ring. Did you notice the herringbone impression plate on the fabulous frame die cut? I also swiped a little acrylic paint on the shipping tag. I placed it in the tea glass for another look.


I made several cards using the new Counting my Blessings word dies. They are so fabulous. I love the pattern paper packs.



A green and blue one.

 

A couple of my favorite elements are the Doily Detail die cut with fabric and cheesecloth used under the Heart-2-Heart #7 die.

 








Happy Hopping Friends! ~Rhonda

  4. This is a wonderful ensemble for Thanksgiving. I especially like the place card holders. The frame looks like it was made for your china! Keeping the color understated will allow the food and people surrounding the table to shine, yet will be a subtle reminder of the reason for the gathering. Do you do something with the completed journal cards?
