Thanksgiving Party Ideas with Elena!

It’s almost time for October Inspiration Week! We will be highlighting more of our Fall/Winter 2019 Release with amazing Design Team Inspiration and lots of Giveaways! Join us for the Big Giveaway on Friday!

Today Elena shares some great ideas to help make your Thanksgiving gathering special!

As always, Elena’s Thanksgiving decor is filled with clever ideas that you can use to make your holiday a very special occasion!

The “pie banner” is so much fun! Elena used the Cake Slice Box Pie Add-On to create this unique party decoration! She cut the “slices” from Spiffy Speckles Ripe Banana paper, then blended on Fake Tan ink for a fun, dimensional speckled look!

The adorable squirrels from Pick of the Patch are the stars of the cupcake toppers! Elena assembled adorable little vignettes to attach to the Simple Wavy Banners! The sweet sentiment is from Forest Feast!

The treat boxes are a shortened version of our Goodie Bag! Elena used partial die cutting to cut the Goodie Bag to fit the Outside In Stitched Pumpkin and Stitched Pumpkin Frame design for the outside! Again she used Spiffy Speckles Ripe Banana inked with Fake Tan! They look so adorable filled with caramel kisses!

Elena created a simple but beautiful banner to set the theme for the gathering! She layered Stitched Party Banners in Paper Bag and Black Licorice cardstock then added the Louie’s ABCs letters in white before stringing the banners on some Tangerine cord!

Thank you so much for sharing these delightful Thanksgiving decoration ideas with us, Elena!

The design team has made the most amazing samples! We also have videos at the end showcasing some fun ways of using these great new products!

Elena‘s expertly inked and splattered “pumpkin” pie looks so yummy! I love how she curved the Sentiment Banner to add to the top!

Megan‘s lattice-top “cherry” pie looks real enough to eat! She created the lattice using two layered Stripey Backdrop panels. The pretty cherry on top is from our I Scream, You Scream die set, it slips neatly into the die cut slit in the fluffy whipped cream!

The cherry pie “filling” was created with the help of our Let’s Bokeh stamps and some ink in shades of red like Guava, Raspberry and Chili Pepper!

Grace “baked” up a yummy selection of Cake Slice Box Pie Add-Ons! She made a peach pie, my favorite Key Lime pie and a beautiful blueberry cream pie! How pretty would these be decorating a dessert buffet?! Delicious!

I love how Grace added pretty Stitched Leaves to decorate the “pie” and used our new Pearlescent Vellum to die cut the “whipped cream”!

Grace‘s Build-A-House Reveal Wheel card is an absolutely adorable school house! I love how she used the icons from Plan on It: School to add fun and interest to the reveal wheel window!

Kara got really creative and made a back-to-school Flippin’ Awesome card! I love how she filled the “chalkboard” panels with all the school-themed images from Plan on It: School! The white embossing on Black Licorice cardstock really fits the school theme! The large happy is stamped with our brand new Offset Sayings: Christmas set!

Elise‘s adorable card is so perfect to bring a smile for the first day of kindergarten; a day that can sometimes brings tears instead! This sweet design combines our So Owlsome critters with Plan on It: School and a custom Smitty’s ABCs greeting!

This ABC flip book is another creative way to make the first day of school special! Grace combined Fall Fling papers with cardstock in No.2 Pencil, Pencil Eraser, Sage Leaf and Rainforest to create her Flippin’ Awesome card! She used Quinn’s Capital ABCs along with images from Wild for You, Get Well Before ‘n Afters and Meow You Doin’! The cute icons in Plan on It: School help to create the fun school theme!
