Wow! It’s almost Turkey Day! I wanted to create a little home decor/Table centerpiece for Thanksgiving and this is what I came up with.
The “center” is a really fun technique I learned with the Lattice Bigz die. I just love the unique feel it gives a simple die cut. Inside the lattice is a battery operated tea light. I LOVE these tea lights!!
Around the outer edges, I used another Bigz die – Autumn Accents. After I cut them out I ran them through different embossing folders.
My sentiment is from the Expressions Thinlits from our Holiday catalog. These Thinlits are SO pretty and I can use them year round. Included in the set are “Merry”, “Love”, and “Thankful”. It really made the whole project come together.
A charger plate gave it more “umph” and made it look a little bigger too. All in all, I think I have a very pretty Thanksgiving centerpiece.
I liked this one so much I started working on a Christmas version with a snowflake theme. I will post pictures of that one when I’m finished. That will give me something fun to work on on Black Friday. I DON’T venture outside my house on Black Friday. I did it once and once was enough for me. 🙂 Last year, for some bizarre reason, I woke up at 4am and THOUGHT about going ahead and going out. Then the flashbacks of Black Friday 2007 came back to haunt me and I knew to just go back to sleep.
If you’re a Black Friday shopper, may the lines be short, the sales be plentiful, and the shopper be kind! Have fun my stamping friends!
