A Thankful Setting

Join us for a week of fun at the 
Authentique & Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop
(this is goood stuff)

 **Come on over to the Authentique Blog and leave a comment**
we have paper to give away :)
I don't mean to gush, but  I LOVE 3L Scrapbook Adhesives.
I use them on literally every single project that I create.
Whether it be 3D Foam Squares, Dodz or adhesive tape, 
 I use it all and with the confidence that it will stay put :)
  For today's project, I've combined all three of the above products and the
 very lovely Thankful by Authentique

 First, I cut a piece of "Harvest" paper to 6x6 and thenrolled into a cone shape; glue.
For the leaves, I cut two different sizes for each one using  
"Cultivate" paper and Cricut's A Child's Year.
 I then layered the two together with both the thin and thick 3-D Foam Squares.
  I love layering different shapes onto one another.
 As you can see above,I punched a label shape from "Remember" paper,
 distressed around theedges and then layered on top of the leaves.
 Because the center of the label needed a little 'extra'
 height, I doubled-up on two of the thick foam squares:
 Next, I applied the beautiful cardstock sticker from the
"Thankful" Details 12x12 Sticker Sheet.  On both sides
I attached two buttons using 3L's Dodz (love).
 A punched tag from (my very favorite!) "Pioneer" paper was
 embellished with "Thankful" Elements 12x8 Stickers to spell out :M-O-M.
I used thin foam squares to attach each sticker letter to the tag. 
In finishing, I tied it onto the cone with a bit of jute.

One other little thing to share.
  In prepping for my place-setting, I cut a few extra leaves in practice.
 I gathered them together and embellished a simple candle and candlestick
 If you'll notice, the leaves have slits cut into them.
This is where I added the thicker foam helps to give it even more dimension!  
In the other places I simply used the thin foam squares.
 A simple circle punched from craft paper is topper with the elegant  
"Thankful" Elements 12x8 Sticker.
Thankful + 3L= Beautiful Thanksgiving projects!

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
