Thanksgiving Place Cards

Hello Everybody!!

It's Trina from the Design Team here! I think I have caught up on all my sleep from an amazing trip to NYC with my son's HS Band. These kids were a great group and I would go anywhere with them again!

Now onto a little project, with Thanksgiving coming up and you want to make the table a little special or give them a little keepsake try making place cards. Here is the photo.

I cut my kraft paper 6x6 and folded in half to make a 3x6 place card. I colored the oh so lovely Pilgrim Marci with my copics and cut her out. I used paper from the 6x6 Designer Paper Pad in All Spice. Cut a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 piece of  paper as a base for my vellum. I used my computer to print the Happy Thanksgiving on the vellum and cut it to fit the base. You can just use names if you have a lot of people or need to assign seats so you really do have a Happy Thanksgiving! LOL  Or just like I made mine! Until next time! I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and Safe Travels for all of you traveling for the Holiday. Oh and good luck on all your Black Friday Shopping!!

My NEW favorite tool........

There it is, doesn't look like much, huh?  But let me tell you, this is one amazing, MUST HAVE new thing-a-ma-bob!  It's the newest toy from We R Memory Keepers, the Sew Ribbon.  This is THE coolest thing ever!  I thought I loved the Sew Easy, but this surpasses that and then some!  I am doing a scrapbook on my garden & flowers and I thought this particular Sew Ribbon would be perfect, it is the Leaf.  It is SO easy to use and that is the honest truth.  The tool itself is very easy to manipulate & line up, it has a ruler on it and being that it is magnetic, it is impossible NOT to have it lined up with itself.  The punch is quite sharp, so be careful in the presence of children, but it certainly does its job.  I tried it through several weights of paper and even doubled up and it worked beautifully under all circumstances.  

Each tool comes with 3 "needles".  They are also sold separately & they are basically just adhesive acrylic pieces that help weave the ribbon through the punched holes, but although one could probably rig up his/her own version the "needles", they are imperative to using the tool with ease and really aren't that expensive so I will definitely keep myself well stocked with these handy-dandy little thing-a-ma-dos!  We R have special ribbon to use and although it isn't necessary to buy their ribbon, it sure is a heck of a lot easier to always know you have the perfect size ribbon.  The ribbon comes in 10 different color families with 3 shades and textures on each "spool". There are 6 different Sew Ribbon designs, each as beautiful as the last and guess what?  I have them all, and guess where I got them?  You betcha, Susie & Scrap Happy!  She has the full line, everything!  Not only that but she and the girls at Scrap Happy will be doing some awesome make-n-takes with the Sew Ribbon this weekend at the Fall Open House.  

Here is my project with the Sew Ribbon on the bottom and then a close-up image. One side note, I used sheer ribbon for a more tone on tone affect, just my preference, but I used my Tim Holtz Distress ink in Peeled Paint and my sponge dauber and inked the holes that were punched so it didn't look so stark.  That step would not be needed if using a more opaque ribbon, but I still think it looks great!  Like I said, my new FAVORITE tool!
