Creation Station Blog Hop - Give Thanks!

Happy Sunday and welcome to our Creation Station blog hop!  It's been 2 months since I've participated in this hop and I missed it!  We are a group of international SU! demos that blog on the first Sunday of the month.  This month we are sharing our "give thanks" ideas for you - just in time for Thanksgiving here in the states.  If you're outside of the US, no worries!  There's plenty to be thankful for, right?

So I wanted to share with you today 3 things that I made really quick with the Vintage Leaves stamp set, the Leaflets Framelits Dies, Large Letter Framelits and a few other accessories.

I bought this Indian corn from a local farmer on Thursday.  $1 each.. Guess that's a Buck-an-ear right? :)  I loved the colors and detail in each ear of corn, but I narrowed it down to these three.  I tied them together with some heavy duty jute and finished it off with some Delightful Dijon 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon, Linen Thread and a few sponged leaves.  

I also cut some letters the other day to make a little banner.  My mom was so kind of have accidentally leave them at my house.  I got a few things precut before I shipped them back!  I guess I'll have to order the Large Letters Framelits soon!  I can already tell they'd be worth the cost!

Again, just kept it super simple with Linen Thread and the Delightful Dijon 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon (which I cut it half to make little ties on the end).

Lastly, I got a head start for our Thanksgiving dinner "place cards".  This year we will be hosting Thanksgiving - 21 total family members - so I have a little work to do.  These are just mini "bags" that I made using Delightful Dijon Cardstock (cut to 4"x11") and the Gift Bag Punch Board.  I stamped the cardstock using Gorgeous Grunge in Soft Suede and Crumb Cake.  I added the same ribbon, a few sponged leaves, some Warmth & Cheer DSP, an initial for each person layered on an Stitched Shapes Framelits Oval.  The name is stamped with the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.

So there you have it!  I hope this puts you in a thankful (or fall) mood!  Don't stop here - make sure you make your way around the hop!  Pin your favorites and leave some blog love!  We love to hear from our readers :)
