Happy Thanksgiving

I am showing you the centerpiece I made for our fall table. I took one of the plastic orange pumpkins that I bought last year and mod podged it with brown craft paper. While the pumpkin was drying I used the 309 and 903 punches to create the flowers. The bigger flowers are using the positive of the punches while the smaller flowers were made using the negatives. I added some burlap that I gathered to the bottom and flowers in the center to complete the look.

Gobble, gobble

Since Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, I thought I would make something to put on my Thanksgiving table. I used the Kreaxion 903 punch and used the negatives to glue on top of a 12" wide sheet of paper, then scored the paper every 1/2 inch. I used pop dots in between the layers to make them stand out. Found a turkey head on line and just edited it, glued that and some leaves to a bottom base of chipboard and cardstock and my little turkey is complete.

Update on Holiday Pinterest Party

I have gotten so many stocking stuffers done for this. I can't show you or my kids will see what they are going to have in their stockings come Christmas morning. I guess you will have to come on over to the Kitchen and see all the wonderful ideas the ladies have come up with.

It's almost November and the holidays are right around the corner! Are you
all ready?

Kitchen Keepsake will be hosting a Holiday Pinterest Party from November
1st - December 24th and YOU are invited!!

All projects are due by midnight December 24th. All you have to do is
start a thread with your (P)interest name and post photos/links of the
holiday project that (P)inspired you and photos of your completed holiday
projects. It can be any holiday project, but each

(P)inspiration only counts once. In other words, if you make a cute little
paper clip bookmark as a stocking stuffer, making 100 of them will not
count 100 times. LOL

The person who completes the most projects will receive a huge box of
scrappy fun!

The Kitchen is here to help with some holiday inspiration, whether it's
gifts or recipes! Come join in the fun and see what everyone is
(P)interested in!

See you in the Kitchen and can't wait to see what you create.
