The Brae-ers October Blog Hop - Give Thanks
Welcome to our October Hop featuring Team Brae-er that focuses on "Giving Thanks" in anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do. To purchase any of the items featured in our blog hop, kindly contact your local consultant. Thank you… now on to our hop!
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you get lost you can find your way by going to Brae's blog at http://thebrae-er.blogspot.com for a full list of participants. If you came from Carol's blog, then you are in the right place!
Our theme this month is "Give Thanks" and I have created three items to show you today. The first is a layout that I was inspired to do from a layout by Carolyn Burch. I used "Artbooking" to create the tree and the photo mats, title and pumpkin. The base paper is from "Sarita" and there is a little "Huntington" in there too. I love our new jute ribbon and the Rosewood Embellishments! A little glitter gel on the leaves in the title and some glitter & shimmer paper along with cardstock for the tree leaves added that little bit of sparkle to the layout. Now I just need to add some photos!
Next, I have a couple of cards I created for recent classes. Both feature Huntington papers and again, I used the burlap ribbon. The stampset on the first card is "Always Grateful", one of my favourite new stamp sets. The second card was stamped with "Poster Tidings" which was our Stamp of the Month for September.
Your next stop on the Team Braer hop is Brae's blog .
Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own projects using some of the designs and paper seen along the way. Join us again in November when we will be featuring gifts to make for the Holidays. See you next month!!
