Glitter & Glam Girls -Thanksgiving

Hello! Happy October! This month we are all featuring Thanksgiving project’s to share with you. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I host our annual family Thanksgiving get-together and we have some fun traditions plus yummy food. Is there anything better than roasted turkey and homemade stuffing? Yummy! I decided to feature the Christmas Advent Countdown Kit, but wanted to show you that you can decorate the reverse side if you want to get double duty out of your Advent kit. So once November is over, I can just turn the boxes around and I’m all set to countdown to Christmas!

This countdown kit is actually going to contain Random Acts of Kindnesses that I am going to complete. I’m planning to share this idea with my friends, family, customers and Girl Scout Troop too. Isn’t November a perfect month to perform some RAK?? I’ve typed them up on the computer and cut them into little pieces to put in each drawer. (Scroll to the end of this post for my list of 25 that I put in my countdown to Thanksgiving box).

 

 

 

Here are a few close-up so you can see in more detail how I decorated the each box.

 

Directions:

  • Come to Gather Designer Series Paper was cut to 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ and cut a small slice out of top with the 1″ circle punch. (I selected 7 pieces of the DSP that did not have the orange color tones). Spread them out on a table and arrange until you get the paper pattern you like.
  • Adhere each piece of DSP to the box front with snail.
  • Stamped greetings in Pretty Peacock ink on whisper white cardstock and fussy cut or punch out and adhere to boxes. I wanted to space out the greetings, so I applied them first, then decorated the fronts of the other boxes.
  • Decorate each box with embossed leaves, leaf embellishments, punched mini leaves and the feathers from the Tags & Feathers Elements.
  • Type the numbers on the computer, I used a free font download called “Hello Buckaroo” and I color matched the font text color to pretty peacock. Then I printed the numbers on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with a retired 3/4″ circle punch.

25 Random Acts of Kindness for November:

  1. Smile at someone JUST BECAUSE. Smiles are contagious! You have the power to brighten someone’s day, by simply smiling.
  2. Buy the person behind you in line coffee.
  3. Donate toys or books to a local charity.
  4. Tape some money on a vending machine with a RAK note.
  5. Bake cookies for your coworkers.
  6. Donate to a food bank.
  7. Send a card in the mail just because!
  8. Volunteer
  9. Donate old blankets and towels to an animal shelter.
  10. Paint “kindness rocks” and hide them for others to find!
  11. Send a care package to deployed soldiers.
  12. Pay for someone’s meal at a restaurant.
  13. Let someone go in front of you in line.
  14. Put coins in an expired parking meter.
  15. Leave a generous tip at a restaurant.
  16. Send flowers to someone.
  17. Help a military family with someone deployed with a meal, babysitting or errands.
  18. Carry a stranger’s grocery bags.
  19. Leave a treat in the mailbox for your mail carrier.
  20. Donate to your favorite charity.
  21. Compliment a stranger.
  22. Bake treats and deliver them to your local police station. Thank them for their service!
  23. Pick up litter at the park.
  24. Leave positive messages in multiple locations (restrooms, restaurants, and on social media).
  25. Call a relative just to say hello!

Feel free to copy/print this little note when you perform your Random Act of Kindness (then people will know it was intentional- and perhaps it will brighten someone’s day to know that they were the recipient).

Stampin Friends Blog Hop- Thank You!

SFblog

 

Welcome to our October Blog Hop!! This month our theme is Thanks, Thanksgiving, and Thankfulness. I have needed a lot of Thank You cards lately, and I wanted to showcase a card and project that might inspire you too! As always, everything is available in my online store, and I’m happy to help you if you need anything, let me know!

As you know, I am involved in four blog hops with four different groups of stampers. Today it just so happens that two of the hops coincide- I worried about this happening…. but if you want to see more on this theme, come back tonight at 9 PM eastern time and you’ll see some more projects!

Everyone knows how much I love owls, right? Well, today’s projects feature my beloved owls.

by Lynn Streifert www.Lynnzcrafters.com ©Stampin' Up!
The card is made with the new hostess set from the 2016 Holiday Catalog called “Cozy Critters”. I pulled in the tree stump from Foxy  Friends so my little fox would have someplace to sit. Guess what I used for the owl’s eyes? The 1/8″ hand-held punch worked perfectly for the smallest pieces. (The scarves on both the owl and fox were hand-cut).  And the greeting is from “Acorny Thank You” that carried over from last year.

by Lynn Streifert www.Lynnzcrafters.com ©Stampin' Up!
I wanted my little owl house to be cute and woodsy, I started by just stamping the door on my piece with the hardwood background stamp in Early Espresso ink on my crumb cake cardstock. (First I cut the two pieces from Home Sweet Home thinlits dies. Use post-it notes to mask off so ink doesn’t get on the house).

Use our wonderful Tear-n-Tape to assemble your little houses, you don’t want them popping open or falling apart. Love our heavy duty double sided Tear-n-Tape for projects like this!! I made a custom roof so it would look more rustic.

The August  Paper Pumpkin kit had these adorable wooden accent pieces, I thought they added a nice touch to my little fall project, what do you think?

It’s a little retro-Vintage looking, do you agree?

Bursting with Bundles!

Good morning stamping friends! I am overjoyed that my dad is able to come home today… I didn’t even have time to tell you he has been in the hospital since Thursday with pneumonia! Poor old fella! So good to see him recovering nicely to heavy duty IV antibiotics.

Since I haven’t had time to create much this week, I thought I would answer a customer’s question- what are ALL the bundles in the new Holiday catalog? I thought that was a good question and wanted to put them all here in the same place. You’re welcome!

bundle

So here are our 22 new Holiday Catalog Bundles:

Of course there are 5 of these bundles that I have shared both wood and clear mount- so you really have 17 different bundle options to decide on… what is your favorite, must have bundle??  I have my favorites- I shared my top 5 with you the other day, will be working on blog posts this weekend, and need to photograph my swaps that I just received this week, so you’ll see some inspiration soon.

So if you’d like any of these items,  you can either click the small photo of the object and it will take you right to my online store, or you can click the “shop now” button at the left side toolbar of this blog, then when you get to my online store and click “Shop Now”  at the top and then click “Holiday 2015” tab on the left. When you checkout- please use this hostess code: GDEBJGK6

Thanks so much for visiting me today, and please leave me a comment, I’d love to hear from you! Have a wonderful day!

I really appreciate all of your support, thanks so much! (Don’t forget our monthly craft kit in the mail – called Paper Pumpkin- is still 1/2 off until September 10th!)

I hope you have a nice day!

October Club Projects…

Good morning friends, how are you? I have missed blogging, it has been a very busy week and I was knocked down a couple days with a virus, all I could accomplish was resting on the couch and watched some shows on my DVR…. Cedar Cove, Parenthood, and Big Bang, all caught up. Good thing I was so productive last weekend getting ready for club and my 6th Annual Columbus Day Stamp-a-Stack. Want to see some projects?  Let me know which one is your favorite, I love to hear from YOU!

First up is a card that I cased (copy and share everything) – the minute I saw this punch art turkey, I knew I had to case it. Thanks to Aly S. for the inspiration! Love this card, and the sentiment from “Mingle all the way” fits perfectly, right?? If you’re not in my club, and would like one of these cards, I am taking orders, and can mail them to you (or deliver if local) in plenty of time for Thanksgiving. Also, can do custom Halloween cards too, it’s not too late. $3.50 if mailing or $3 each for local customers. Let me know what you think. thanks.

Next up is a stamp set I have used a few times, but I can’t get enough of the cardinal, so I changed this one up, featured these framelits before I knew they were a “weekly deal”- would you like to save money? Our weekly deals are 25% off original price and good for 7 days only, they launch every Tuesday morning and expire every Monday night at midnight MT.

Card #3 for club members this month is this card, I really wanted to feature the new stars, can you believe I hadn’t made a card with them yet??

Last but not least, yes 4 projects this month, is this cute santa box, case from Pinterest (by Lynn Starzl)- I love all the inspiration from Pinterest, don’t you?

curvy

So that’s it for today, whew, that was a lot of typing… I will post my 7 cards from my 6th Annual Columbus Day Stamp a Stack later this week, need to go finish getting ready.

Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful weekend! Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog today! Would love to hear from you!!

Stamping with Seniors- November

Today was my monthly stamping event at the Atrium, a Senior Citizen Retirement Apartment Complex. I was asked to offer Thanksgiving and Hanukkah items this month. Here’s what I came up with.

atrium nov9

atrium nov atrium nov2 atrium nov3 atrium nov4 atrium nov5 atrium nov6 atrium nov7 atrium nov8

Many sincere thanks to Amye, Judy, Sheila, Claire, Ashley, Nicole, and Sophie for volunteering their time today so that these seniors could have some stamping fun. I think the girls enjoyed going door to door to invite people to come stamp and then they went around at the end of our stamping time and delivered hand-made cards and decor to the residents. The girls got a lot out of it, and I heard them commenting “did you see her smile when we gave her that card??” sniff, sniff… this friends is what “pay it forward” means, to be giving of your time, talent and spirit is worth all the gold in the world. I hope we melted a few hearts today, well besides mine that is. So proud of my group of friends who are so generous with their time. Thank you a million!

Well, off to my first booking from book-a-thon at Jen’s house tonight. Will post pictures tomorrow.
Take care, thanks for visiting my blog!
