So Thankful

Hey y'all! Aymee Gandy of 'A Scraphappy Southernbelle' here with you on this gorgeous day to share my very first post as a DT Member of Creative Charms! I am SO excited and SO thankful to be here working with these fabulous designers and with such fabulous products! So let's get started...

For my first project, I have a Thanksgiving frame to share with you. I just love Thanksgiving! It is a time of family, friends, and fabulous food. It is also a time that we count our blessing and are thankful for all we have in our lives. I wanted to create a frame to add to the festive decor' I have going in my kitchen for the holidays. So I turned to some fabulous embellishments from Creative Charms to create my project.

I started off with a basic frame that I purchased at a local dollar store. I then cut a turkey out using my Cricut electronic die cutting machine. For the feathers, I turned to a trick that I tried out the other day on my personal blog. I loved the trick so much, I decided to do it again! LOL! I used some luscious ribbon from the Fancy Polka Dot Ribbon Collection. I took strips of Brown & White Fancy Polka Dot Ribbon and Red & White Fancy Polka Dot Ribbon, folded them in half, and adhered them to my die cut turkey to act as 'feathers.' I then added a few Seasonal Sparkles Stickers-Autumn Words & Bling in with my 'feathers', to the brim of my turkeys hat, and as my sentiment on the frame. I also added a Vintage Jewel Brad in Amber to the top of my turkeys hat. I adhered all of the pieces to the top of the glass of my frame using a strong adhesive. Next, I decided to jazz up the edges of the frame. I used more of the Vintage Jewel Brads in Amber and Velvet Ric Rac in Red to finish off the project. I can't wait to display this in my home for the holidays!
 I love the dimension that the Vintage Jewel Brads, Seasonal Sparkles, and Ribbon give!
 Just a closer look at my 'feathers' so you can see.
 After finishing up my Thanksgiving frame, I decided to turn to our next big holiday...Christmas! Another holiday that I love! For this project, I made a card to send out to a fellow scrapbooking pal. I created a 'Christmas tree' on the front of my card using an assortment of Gradient Brads and Gem Stickers from the November Deal of the Month to create my card. I am sending this to a scrapbooker because I know that they can easily disassemble this card and re-use the fabulous Gradient Brads from Creative Charms in a project of their own. So really it's a gift within the card! I also used a seasonal sticker and a corner punch on this card.
 The November Deal of the Month is packed full of some awesome goodies!!! It includes 138 pieces for $6.99!!! A Sweet Deal!
 Don't these Gradient Brads provide wonderful dimension? I love them!
I hope you have enjoyed my first blog posting! I had such a good time working with these awesome products from Creative Charms! They really brought my projects to life!

Thanks for visiting the Creative Charms blog! We hope to see you again soon!
Happy Scrappin'!!!
