Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop--Remember to Give Thanks

Welcome to the September Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop. The theme for this month's hop is "Remember to Give Thanks".  There are over 30 participants on this hop and we are all excited to share some projects showcasing Stampin' Up! products into an artistry form and remembering to give thanks.

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the previous person to me on the list. Please be sure to click the person after me to move along the blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.


I chose to use one of the images from the Among the Branches stamp set as my focal point.  First and foremost, I want to Give Thanks to our Dear Lord for allowing my family to continue living on earth...LOVE them to pieces!  With that said, my family does not all live in the same state anymore, which makes it hard for all of us to get together, so we have always gathered at Thanksgiving at the old family homestead.  Autumn Wishes and tasty dishes brings back wonderful memories that my family has been creating for many years celebrating "thanks giving".  I can already smell the delicious foods that Mom cooks each year.  YUM!

I also want to extend my heartfelt "thank you" to all of my family, friends and customers for all of the love and support with my Stampin' Up! business.  Without all of YOU, I would not have been able to earn the wonderful Mediterranean Cruise that sets sail May 2016.  I wish I could give each of you a personal hug, but a virtual {{HUG}} will have to do until that wonderful day that our paths will cross in person.  Thank you SO much!

The color scheme that I used is a Very Vanilla cardbase, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Hello Honey cardstock and a pattern from the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper pack.  The leaves accented with Linen Thread come from the Vintage Leaves stamp set and die cut using the Leaflets Framelits.

The center focal point was a little drab putting layer on top of layer, so I threw in some of the new Gold Metallic Thread and dimensionals between the Early Espresso and Hello Honey layer.  Soooo much better looking with a little added character, don't you think?!!

The little leaves come from the Among the Branches set and are single stamps.  I grouped them together on a clear block and dabbed the corner of my ink pads (Soft Suede, Cajun Craze & Hello Honey) randomly onto the grouped leaves and stamped onto Very Vanilla.  I would clean the stamps and ink them up all over again...repeated until the piece of cardstock was full of colorful leaves.
