Creation Station Blog Hop - Harvest Party

Happy Sunday everyone! Welcome back to another fun blog hop. I truly am lucky to be a part of this fabulous group of talented stampers. I'm smiling so big that my cheeks hurt! For this time our options were were -  

  • Use the For All Things stamp set (found in our Holiday Catalog)
  • Harvest Party themed projects
  • Highlight the use of our Petite Cafe Gift Bags

You know me....I LOVE a good party! So welcome to my rendition of a Harvest Party!

First up, I thought I would share the cute little name cards I made so all my guests know where to gather around the table.

Little haystacks that are just too cute, right?! LOVE it! How did I make these little cuties? I made 2 individual small tubes of Crushed Curry card stock (think toilet paper tubes) then used my Fringe Scissors to snip all the way around on the top and bottom. I left a good inch in the middle uncut. I used our FABULOUS Burlap Ribbon to wrap around them to add some texture. I cut a fun little tag and stamped the cute little saying from Holiday Home and leaf from Fall Fest stamp sets and attached it around the burlap with Linen Thread. Easy and cute!

Second up, no place setting at the table would be complete without a cute wreath napkin ring holder right? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how versatile stamp sets can be!! The Wondrous Wreath stamp set in our Holiday Catalog is more than just for Christmas. By using different ink colors, in this case Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso, I made it into a fall wreath. Use greens, pinks, yellows and then you've got spring! It really should have been named "Wreath For All Seasons". LOL

And of course, no guest can leave our harvest party without a special thank you to truly show my appreciation for them and the time they spent with me. Here, I die cut a French Fry box (Did I mention I really like this new die? It's super cute!) and stamped it with leaves from the Fall Fest stamp set in Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Blackberry Bliss and Gorgeous Grunge splatters in Baked Brown Sugar.  Add a stamped and die cut pumpkin on the front and voila! A cute and easy favor that packs a lot of punch.

I hope you've enjoyed attending my Harvest Party today! I loved having you! Don't worry, the fun is not over yet! Depending on where you started on this blog hop, you can go back and revisit Kallan's creativity or you can hop along to see what awesomeness Deborah has to share with you today! Happy Stamping!
