Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

Blog Hop Graphic(sq)

Happy Saturday and welcome to my blog! If you came here from Nicole‘s blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.

Today the Design Team is sharing Fall Entertaining projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. These are items that could be used for a Fall or Thanksgiving get together or dinner. The team has some awesome and inspiring projects to share today, so be sure to check them all out! For me and my family, Thanksgiving means heading to the in-laws for some amazing Thanksgiving feasting! I am so very thankful for all the preparation and wonderful food (the best stuffing and yeast rolls that ever were) so my project is focused on hostess gifts.

First some pretty pictures:FEH_Full


Lisa recently added the Bottle Tag 1 Cutting Files to her store and it was just what I needed for my project. Of course, I couldn’t just stop there. I wanted wonderful patterns and textures and a fabulous sentiment and embellishment, so I also used the Pumpkin Spice Pattern Pack 2 and Pumpkin Spice Falling Leaves for the patterns, the So Very Thankful phrase from the Silhouette store (Design ID# 68943 also found in the Thankful Pocket Cards in the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store), as well as the pumpkin group from the Silhouette store (Design ID#67500 also found in Pumpkin Patch Cutting Files in the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store).FEH_TreatDet

In addition to my bottle tag, I wanted to create some treat holders for my niece and nephew, so I used the same digital patterns with the Fancy pillow box (Silhouette Design ID#68610 and Fancy Pillow Box 1 Cutting Files) along with a tag from the four layered tags (Silhouette Design ID#64351 and Layered Tags 1 Cutting Files) and the turkey from turkey with pumpkin (Silhouette Design ID#68272  and also from the First Thanksgiving Cutting Files) as well as a Speech bubble (Silhouette Design ID#62870 and Speech Bubbles Cutting Files.) I know I used a lot of files from the Silhouette store, but since I have a subscription, I like to use it when I can. A tip for making print and cut creations really quick and easy as pie (yum, pumpkin) is to use the files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons shop because they include PNGs and JPGs of all the images, especially if lining images is something you’d rather skip.
