thanksgiving ideas

So. Are ya havin’ the big food party at your house next week? Gotta be the one cookin’ the turkey? Have ya got all the tables and chairs ya need? Am I stressing you out now?

How’s about  place cards? No? Don’t have any ideas for that? You know Thanksgiving is next week, right?

Well rest your pretty little self, Shari’s gotcha covered there! Take a look at these!

[ Shapes | This+That Autumn (leaves) ]

That girl has got a way with her inks and sprays and mists . . . oh my! Those leaves are amazing!

Now, have you taken care of an Thanksgiving cards or invites that you need to send out? Need yourself an idea for that one too? Well, Shari’s got that one covered as well! Check it out:

[ Shapes | This+That: Autumn (leaves) / Giving Thanks (title)

Another fantabulous card! Love how she’s coordinated the leaves and banner of the card with the place cards so that you can keep a repeating theme. And how cool would it be to make a little banner with just those leaves and string them up like garland? Or sprinkle them on your table? Maybe write a little message on the flipside of the leaf so that when people pick them up they can read a little message of gratitude. So fun!

Some amazing ideas here Miss Shari! Love ’em!

[For more on how Shari made these cards, check out her blog HERE.]

And now I thought it might be fun to show off some fun ideas that we’ve seen in the past here at KBS.

Right now a lot of you are thinking about preparing an advent calendar or your December Daily. You might remember this fun little *ehem* number from last year. And there may be those of you who weren’t around last year and may not have seen this one. Hence, the flashback. :)

This is the Christmas Countdown kit that you can use in box or tag form or both! If you want to read all about it, check out this post HERE. And no, I still haven’t bought my frame, wire and clips to hang these cute little boxes. I knew I wouldn’t get it done this week either, so I’m sharin’ it anyway. :)

And see that snowflake there on day 16? Yeah, see what Shari did with that snowflake here.
(I think that snowflake is one of my favorite shapes….)

Wouldn’t that make a simple holiday gift or decoration?  Totally love. As you can see, the kit is so versatile for any holiday project!

    Wow,amazing ideas. Love the placecards. I’m new to the Silhouette but have already purchased the Christmas Countdown. I’m a little intimidated but I am going to try it!

    Another super cute project by Shari! And, I like that it relatively simple, and do-able along with all the other holiday preparations! Love it!

    Always great projects. Loved the flashback. Wow some people get fancy for the holiday, cool! Still working on downloading my files i just got. I guess my PC will not let me do the batch change for DXF so i am doing them one at a time into a studio file and then it will let me move them over into my library. It is all worth it ( :

      Hey Rhodonda!
      Make sure you’ve updated to the most recent version of Studio. There were a couple of versions where it wasn’t working, but all should be well now! :)
