Karen Foster Design: Fall and Thanksgiving Collections

Today's Karen Foster Design post is feelin' fallish! We have two collections that coordinate beautifully. Up first is Autumn. Just LOOK at those new sparkle brads...drool!

For this card I die cut a large leaf using the collage paper and tied a bow using Scrappers Spools. I never get tired of using them!

Here's a layout using photos from our pumpkin patch last year. I handstamped the leaf and acorn background as well as on the twill ribbon.

Here's the Thanksgiving line that coordinates so well with Autumn.

I made a card with stamped pumpkins, leaves, and of course the sentiment. I also wrapped a punched scallop with a layer of Scrappers Spool. How many different ways can you think of to use this awesome product?

When your guests are enjoying Thanksgiving dinner, consider making a Gratitude box. Guests can write about something that they are thankful for, and everyone can share around the dinner table. This box makes a great container for a hostess gift or a favor box to send home goodies with your guests. I stamped the twill on this box, too.

Be sure to leave a comment on any and all Karen Foster Design project posts of mine this week to be entered to win an awesome prize including some of these Autumn embellishments. Good luck!
