CTO Challenge 40: Thanksgiving Themed Project With Buttons - Bountiful Blessings

Hello my treasured friends!

Got a quick post for you all today! I've been super swamped with group papers, which I won't be done until next week. Then the holidays will kick off! Of course I'll still have finals to worry about as well though ;) I'll have to put off all my commenting until then, sorry!!

Before I get into my project for today, I just wanted to mention that Erica from Erica's Craft Room is having a seasonal design team call which I'll be part of! Each day beginning in December, her and the design team will be featuring 25 projects, all the way up till Christmas! That's right, that's a total of 625 projects with a theme for each day! There's still spots open if you're interested! You can get the information here.

Now for today's challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion, the challenge is to create a Thanksgiving themed project and incorporate buttons. Here in Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving last month, but I wanna wish all of my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you all are surrounded by your loved ones this Thanksgiving.

Here's a peek inside the card:

Trail of Treasures:
  • Card Base - used Nestabilities scalloped circle, cut in kraft cardstock, embossed with the Cuttlebug Diamond Plate Embossing Folder, and added irock gems on each scallop
  • Layer - cut from DCWV Harvest Gathering Stack
  • Cute Indian Girl - cut at 2.5" from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge, used the Peachy Keen Simple Sallies Face Assortment, PK-531 for the face, added a button and feather, and some Orange Truffle Twine by Trendy Twine for the bows
  • Sentiment for Inside of Card - used Pink By Design  Bountiful Blessings stamp set

Sending bountiful blessings to you this Thanksgiving season!

Until next time's treasures,

    CTO Challenge 38 - Lest We Forget

    Happy Tuesday my treasured friends!

    It feels like ages since I've posted here, and quite honestly, I miss it a lot. With all the school work and injuring my hand at work, it has put off the crafting that I wanted to get done :(. Over at Celebrate the Occasion today, the Challenge is to create a project for Veteran's Day! Here in Canada, our "Veteran's Day" is called "Remembrance Day", which we celebrate on November 11. We all wear poppies over our heart to honour those who died for our country, and we have a moment of silence on the 11th day of the eleventh month, at the eleventh hour. How is Veteran's Day celebrated in America?

    So in honour of Remembrance and Veteran's Day, I created this super simple card showcasing our poppies, and a common quote during Remembrance Day, Lest We Forget.

    Super, super simple card for you all today. Gotta wait till my hand gets a little bit better before I can get crafting again, which is unfortunate.

    Trail of Treasures:
    • Card Base - 4.25 x 4.25" square card cut in kraft cardstock with stitching
    • Letters - Shimmer Alpha Making Memories Stickers
    • Twine - from my local scrapbooking store, and added a red poppy

    As we all celebrate the importance of whether it be Veteran's or Remembrance Day, don't forget to thank all those soldiers who fought for the freedom of our country. No words could ever express our gratitude. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Also new and exciting, I just recently started up my own Facebook page. If you're on Facebook, make sure to pop on by to Tracey's Trail of Treasures, and say hi!

    Happy Veteran's Day everyone!

    Until next time's treasures,
