Happy Thanksgiving!

Autumn Leaves 1

It’s been a busy few days here at the Moss Home. We always host Thanksgiving for Steve’s family. It’s a lot of work, but it’s always great to get together. Whatever you’re doing for the holiday, I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

From Our Family to Yours

Here’s a picture from last year’s Thanksgiving and a picture of our set up this year.

Autumn Leaves

I thought I’d share a pretty fall project with you today. This one is really pretty easy and uses the Autumn Leaves Bundle. It’s perfect for today.


First, cut a Blackberry Bliss card base to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches and score at 4 1/4 on the long side to make your card base.

Next, cut a Very Vanilla panel to 4 x 5 1/4. Stamp the large maple leaf around the edges in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Blackberry Bliss inks. Attach panel to the card base.

The Details

Autumn Leaves 2

Cut a piece of Natural Ribbon, shred the ends a bit and attach to the card with Stampin’ Seal.

Stamp greeting in Blackberry Bliss on a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut with the coordinating label die.

Cut a piece of gold foil using the narrow banner die. Snip in half and attach to the back of the label and attach over the ribbon using Dimensionals.

Embellish with gold sequins.

Gather Together

With November just around the corner, I think more often about all the things I’m thankful for.  I am SO BLESSED to have a good husband and the 3 Fs (family, friends, and furbabies).

In Steve’s family, the holiday get togethers are “farmed out”, and Thanksgiving is “our” holiday.  We can have 25-30 people over, and we gather in my studio, which means I have to collect my craft supplies and store them in another area to make room for everyone to eat together.  It’s a lot of work, but my craft studio is fairly large, so it’s the only time of the year that we can all actually sit down in the same room.

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the cooler weather and the beautiful colors.  Although they aren’t traditional, I really like the colors in the Come To Gather Suite in the Holiday Catalog.  We made this card at October Stamp Club.

Harvest Hello Note Cards

I love having Stampin’ Up! Parties!  And some of my friends (like LaAnna), have discovered the secret to getting a LOT of FREE stuff!

LaAnna is a member of my Stamp Club, so when it’s her month as host, she will have at least a $150 party (and usually more) as part of Club.  If she has an outside party, and invites her friends and neighbors, any orders are added to her club orders, so she earns extra FREE stuff.

This option is available to all of my club members, but not many take advantage of it.  And, they can have the party in my studio, so they don’t have to do anything except bring snacks!

At LaAnna’s outside party, we had two Make-n-Takes.  The first one was the treat box from September’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  The second was this cute little note card.

I like using the note cards for Make-n-Takes because they are already pre-cut and scored, and come with an envelope.
