I’m looking forward to a wonderful family time this coming Thanksgiving and am looking forward to every opportunity to make it a truly memorable event.  Thinking ahead to dinner and the presentation that I want to spoil my family and guests with, I thought that perhaps this year I would create a program to sit at each place setting as well as place cards.  The program will tell the events in the order they occur, the Blessing (one of many) that will be given before dinner to bless the food, The Menu and then outline our Family Roundtable – the discussion we’ll be having in celebration of thankfulness we have for blessings received throughout the year.  For our Roundtable, each person takes a turn speaking about an event or something they are grateful for.


Once I delved into this project, I got really excited about the whole concept.  As I designed the pages for the program I discovered I could make them reusable – so now I can actually pull out each typed portion and replace it with a new panel if I want to use the program again.   Of course if we have guests they are welcome to take a program with them as a keepsake.  Doesn’t this project just scream scrapbook?  I can see after the event is over separating each of the pages and taking the place card and making them all part of several scrapbook pages reflecting on the good time had at Thanksgiving.


The background of each panel is done with the Flourishes Damask Background stamp – one of my very favorites if you haven’t noticed, and all printing is computer generated.

Stamps:  Flourishes Damask
Paper:  Bazzill
Ink:  Brilliance Pearlescent Beige
Accessories:  Nestabilities, Punch, Brads, Ribbon

I’ll be posting Blog Candy some time this weekend, so be sure to stop by!  Happy Friday!

    Hello –

    I actually came upon a very small number of these very pineapple punches and am selling them on my eBay and Etsy shops. I like to include images that demonstrate what can be done with the crafting tools and would love to post one of the images from this project. They are all gorgeous! Of course, I would include a link to your blog and credit.

    Let me know if that is all right with you.

    Cheers – happy crafting!

Today, out of respect, I wanted to take pause to remember the tragedy of 9-11, the lives that were affected and the nation that was changed.  Of course it is one of those events where I will never forget what I was doing on that morning and my children were old enough at the time to remember too and will have lasting memories.   The enormity of it all, the grief for the families and the anger…oh how we prayed.  I remember weeping so many times that week.  A friend sent me a poignant slide show through email this week that shows everything in detail again – people jumping, building collapsing, smoke and ruin.  Out of the rubble rose the pride of a nation and we were joined by sympathetic allies.  Join me (please, without political commentary) in remembering . . .

Because I wanted to get something worked up quickly to post tonight, I went with the layout from SC193 to plan the card.  It’s a tall card measuring 4.25 inches wide by 8 inches tall. 

Have a blessed day!  I have blog candy to announce perhaps tomorrow and please know that I’m working on projects to share with you soon.

    Beautiful card Becca. September 11th is hard for me because I want to be happy as it is my husband and I wedding anniversary. Fifteen years ago, September 11, 1993. We both feel guilty about celebrating, so we usually celebrate on a different day. I guess that our anniversary is forever tarnished with that tragedy. It is a painful reminder to really appreciate all of the blessings that God has given us, those directly ewffected by the tragedy, aren’t so fortunate. God bless the USA, and God Bless you Becca.

With all the work on circles, I had one of these small circles sitting off to the side that I had experimented with and it became the inspiration for this card.  Glad I was finally able to get it out of my head.  The concept for the card was in my head, but I orginally had a different sentiment picked out.  Once I thought about it a bit, this sentiment came to mind and I realized it was perfect!

The punch I used on the circles is EK Success Intricate Iris and it is punched four times on each circle.  I’m still having fun with circles and I hope you are too!

    Good evening, Becca. Your creation today is stunning. When I look at it the colours give me a warm glow just like the thoughts behind the sentiment which I love. I have been blessed with a loving, caring family which is continuing to grow through the youngest members and I find this text very apt. Your presentation of the family circle is wonderful as always.ReplyCancel

    Becca – you are the punch queen!!! That sentiment is absolutely perfect with this, and I just love how you did the ribbons woven through them. Your cards are some of my all time favorites!

    Becca… Wow. I’m speechless – the card is beautiful and the colors you used are perfect. Thank you for continuing to share your talent and creativity with us.ReplyCancel

    Becca, this is definitely one of my all time favorites of your cards! The circle ‘message’ is accented and featured wonderfully with the other punched circles and ribbon accent! LOVELY! The circles seem smaller than some previous ones as it appears you punched four times instead of either. Hate to add to your tasks, but appreciate how you teach with each card. IF you have time to note the size of the circles before you punch, would appreciate it. THANKS for sharing your talent and posting GOOD messages with your cards. Very uplifting! Something I look forward to everytime I look at your blog.

    Love how you threaded the ribbon through the punched circles!

    So, Becca, just how long do you paper craft each day? You have so many great cards!

    And how do you organize your scraps and leftovers? I am always looking for ways to use up everything and to organize my supplies and tools! Maybe you could do a post on that? :]ReplyCancel
