Thanksgiving Table Decorations Hop

Welcome to GabyCreates
and to the Thanksgiving Table Decorations Hop

Hopefully you just arrived from Kerri's Blog
But if you just happen to be visiting and wish to participate,
please start at the beginning with Sylvia

This is the first time I create place cards or drink markers...

Each card will have a name and the card's design will match the drink marker...
Used my Silhouette Cameo, AC card-stock and jewelry wire.
Now I just need to come up with 15 more for our traditional family Thanksgiving Dinner!

Thanks for participating!
Leave a comment for a chance at a set of Stampendous "from the kitchen" stamps.

"Noche De Paz" LO for Creative Cutter Room

 Welcome to our first ever sketch challenge over at the CCR!

I am so happy to be participating in today's challenge!
This is my take on the sketch:

Isn't this a Great sketch! Courtesy of Let's scrap!

 I used the Cricut Twinkle Toes cartridge for the piano and musical notes.
I cut (layer) the music sheet out of off white cardstock and stamped the music notes with a stamp by Hampton Art/Cosmo Cricket and Tim Holtz distress ink in walnut stain.  The piano keys were drawn by DH.
 All PP is by Making Memories Twinkle Collection that you can find over at Happy N Scrappin'
I used vellum to type my journal entry. Font: LD Christmas Carol from my computer.  All trims and snow flake brads are by MM Twinkle Collection. (the red trim is from last year's collection)

A Two Page LO using Doodlebug ColorWheel Essentials

Good Tuesday Morning

Today I have a Two Page Layout using the colorful
That you can find over at Happy N Scrappin'

This is my Jasmine when she turned 6th --
When I first received this collection I did not know what I would come up with, I just knew it had to be colorful.... and then it hit me!  I remembered these pictures and Jasmine's colorful skirt!  I think it matches oh so perfect!
Here you can see that I created the journal entry lines with my sewing machine.
Above you can see that I used several of the embellishments included on the kit (flowers, butterfly) and the included rub-on alphabet in addition to more stitching.
More stitching and more of the embellishments included on your kit .
Just wanted to show how most of the embellishments have lots of glitter!

This is the kit that you can find over at the HappyNScrappin'.
