Thanksgiving Day, F. Brundage Notebook & P. Rabbit Xmas Ball

Thanksgiving Silverware Bag

Lori Hairston was working with my " Vintage Thanksgiving Greetings" Sheet to create this absolutely incredible and all over unique Silvverware Bag.....what a creative and festive idea,,,,,Horayyyy for Lori

Thanksgiving brings out the tradition in us. Vintage plates, linens that aren't quite vintage (but have been around for some time), dishes that we serve every year. You would think it would be boring, but I look forward to it every year! I do change the placecard holders (I'll be showing those later) and maybe the decorations on the table.

Here is another idea - how about a Thanksgiving Silverware Bag? Nicecrane Designs has some gorgeous images to help you create for Thanksgiving. The kids carving pumpkins is one of my favorites.

A Little Tip:You'll notice that the lace is added to the bottom of the muslin bag. I have a little tip to make it easier to sew. It's so hard to get to the (almost) bottom of the bag with a needle.

Just stick a piece of cardstock in the bag! 

That way when you are sewing on the lace and buttons you won't pick up the back of the bag.

Aren't the leaves pretty? They arrived the other day from Speckled Egg

Until November 20th all the Christmas Balls atNicecrane Designs are 50% off  Use code:  CHRISTMAS2013

I used a couple of the Christmas Ball images on my snowflakes which you can see here.

Visions of Sugarplums will arrive on December 2nd. Check out this post to see how to get an early entry for the grand prize. Nicecrane Designs is one of the sponsors of Visions of Sugarplums - thank you, Ignacio!

So Cute Peter Rabbit Christmas Ball
Vicky was inspired by my precious P. Rabbit Christmas ball ,,,,so directly from her blog: I'm pretty impressed with myself. And I have some to share with you. I figured I would start off with a Peter Rabbit Christmas ball from Vol. 2. There's still a great sale going on over at Nicecrane Designs on all the Christmas balls!!! So you really need to get over there and take advantage of this.

This is the sheet inspiration that previews this set

I'm sharing the 1st one that I made and will share the other probably tomorrow ;o)
Adorable Peter Rabbit Xmas Ball by Vicky

They are soooo fun to do I really hope that you go and take advantage of this great sale. I used some ribbon from my stash. I inked all the edge with my Chipped sapphire distress ink.

Here's a sideview so you really see the depth of this!

I really wanted to get some done because I've started to use them as the embellishments to the gift bags that I'm making for Christmas!

Thanks a million to Lori, Wenche and Vicky ,,wowww,,,,

When Max saw it, he said that it didn't look like a Christmas card at all ! I suppose he doesn't like pastel colours for the festive season but I had to match the soft colours of the beautiful image from Nicecrane Designs ("A Joyful Christmas" Collection)...

I am falling in love with the color combo and these stunning dies,,,you are Rock Catherine

Adorable Vintage Japanese Christmas Card

I am falling with the work by Lisa from  Decosses Dynamite Doodles, so directly from her blog:
Ignacio who is the designer behind Nicecrane Designs has some absolutely incredible vintage images. He offers many different varieties and you can find both coloured images and black and white ones plus some other really neat creations. I've only gone through three sections of the store and I've already added thirteen items to my wish list! Ignacio has also graciously offered up a number of freebies on his blog and it is one of them that I used to create the card I am showcasing today.

I decided I wanted to keep the background pretty clean and simple because I didn't want to detract from the beauty of the image. It was also nice to go with non-traditional colours in creating this holiday card. While it looks a little red in the picture, the card base is actually a salmon colour that complimented the colour of the building.

Digital Image:
See? I didn't exaggerate. The image really is quite remarkable. The choice of colour along with all of the detail, makes for a beautiful winter scene. You can still find this image and another in the same style available for free by clicking HERE and scrolling down to the bottom of the post. Make sure you take a moment to say thanks to Ignacio if you do grab it. I do hope that you'll also take a moment while you are there and check out the entire post. Not only does it feature some more awesome images available for purchase, it also showcases several of Vicky's beautiful cards.

Digital Sentiment: 
I brought the image into Publisher and added the text 'Happy Holidays' before printing.

Digital Sentiment:
I followed the same layout as the front and just created a simple verse incorporating the same font that I used on the front.

Paper Products:
Card base and matting for image and sentiment: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Preppy Beach collection.
Designer Papers:
The grey plaid paper is from the Recollection's Bright & Basic Paper Pad.
The grey cardstock that I embossed is from the Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Cool Water collection.

Embossing Folder:

The embossing folder is the same one I used in a recent Scribbles Designs card. It is still downstairs but I'm pretty sure that it is Goosebumpz brands. The reason I went with the same tiny dots is because of the snowflakes that are so small they appear as simple dots.
I am definitely addicted to the idea of texture. Now I just have to keep building my folder collection!

Before I go...
As I mentioned earlier, the image I worked with is a freebie; however, if you love Asian winter scenes, there are two other sets I'd like to recommend that you check out. First, is this wonderful set of prints called Stunning H. Kawase (Ukiyo-e).

Aren't these images simply stunning?! The colours are just so rich and the detail incredible. If you would like to check them out further, you can click on the image to head to its location in the Nicecrane store.

The second set of prints I'm going to recommend based on this style is called Amazing Kawase.

Another eight beautiful Asian scenes. Best of all, these ones could be used for a variety of different cards and not just winter based ones. Once again, clicking on the image will bring you to where you can find it in the store.

Well, that is it for my post. I hope that you have enjoyed my non-traditional Christmas card and that if you have the opportunity, you'll pay Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs a visit. Your time will definitely be well spent. He has an incredible Creative Team and you'll definitely walk away inspired!

Thanks a million to Brenda and Lisa for these amazing creations,,,,,,,,so unnusal, so creative,,,,, woww,woww.
