Banner Blog Hop

I am so excited to be apart of the Banner Blog Hop...
Everyone in the hop has created a banner for either
Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years.
This is the first banner that I ever made with my Cricut.
I love how it turned out...
I love Thanksgiving! I love that my family is able to gather together around the dinner table and that we are able to have a real big traditional Turkey Dinner. This is a real feat because part of my kitchen and my dining room is my crafting area.  So you can imagine what I have to go through to get everything cleaned up and organized for the holiday.

So my banner spells out FAMILY...

The acorns were cut from the Doodlecharms cart at 7".  The base of the acorn is chipboard and I also used two tones of rustic brown card stock. I alternated the colors top and bottom on each acorn. I embossed the top part of the acorns with the "Spots and Dots" Cuttlebug embossing folder, for a little texture.
 The leaves where cut from the Doodlecharms cart at 2 1/2". The letters and Shadows were cut from Plantin School Book, they were cut at 4".
All this was glue down using my Sticker Maker by Xyron.

I added buttons on top of the leaves to accent the acorns. 
Are they not the cutest acorns you ever did see? 

Okay now for the some fun! I am giving away a...

Xyron Pink

Beautiful banner....Well our family tradition is called Thankmas.... My son and stepson go to their other parents for Christmas so we do Christmas with the kids on Thanksgiving morning... It is soooo fun and the kids named our special day "Thanksmas"...We decorate our house the day after Halloween and put the tree up...

LOVE the banner!! Very cute acorn idea, creative:)
Our tradtion is every year we have all the family together and they each bring their "speciality" side dish...yummy can't wait for the feast!!

Mix-on The Memories said...

Beautiful Banner, love the acorns. My favorite tradition came from my greadfather. Eventhough they might eat at another family member or friends house for Thanksgiving he still wanted a Thanksgiving dinner from his wife. So I still make my husband the sides for Thanksgiving. Since it is just the two of us I may not make a whole turkey. I may do a turkey loaf, wings or legs.

Thanksgiving was always at my mom's house and since she passed away in 2008 I started having it in my new house. My family likes that we can be together and mom is here in spirit but everything doesn't remind them of her. We always have a good time, even if I don't make the pies from scratch!

Tammy said...

I love the acorns as a base, your banner is fabulous!! My favorite tradition for Thanksgiving is cooking the big meal and it is just me and my immediate family. We are a retired Military family and when we retired and moved back home, my family (the extended 100+ member Family) always expects us at Christmas dinner. Thanksgiving is so nice because it is small and low key and we really enjoy it. Thanks for the inspiration and the chance at a giveaway (ATG rocks)

I love the acorns, what a great idea. I make a tree out of twisted craft paper every year and put it on a wall in our family room. I cut out leaves and put them in a baggy with a marker and hang it on the wall next to the tree. Everyday we write on a leaf one thing we are thankful for and tape the leaf to our tree. Even friends that come to visit like to add to our thankful tree.

I love your Banner and your story of your family. I'm a bit jealous, the holidays this year will be difficult for me and my family, We lost both my parents, Mom in march and Dad in July. Going to keep my chin up (sniff sniff)for my children and grandchildren. This year I will be going to my Aunts and it's loud and crazy but wouldn't have it any other way.

SpantastiKreations said...

Love the acorns. I want Doodlecharms.

My favorite Thanksgiving tradition of mine growing up was that we would each have a small candle, usually holiday themed/shaped like a turkey or pilgrim and after we ate and before we'd clear and clean we'd light our candles and we would stay around the dinner table and talk and share what we are thankful for until all our candles were burned out. Sometimes it was only 15min or less but sometimes one of us would get that one candle that just wouldn't die and we were FORCED to spend time together.

TFS,

This banner is BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the embossing such a beautiful touch! My favorite thanksgiving tradition is that we all sit around the dinner table and say what we each are thankful for.

I just love the banner it is beautiful. It would fit great with our family tradition. Every Thanksgiving we have my husbands family and my family all together at our house for a BIG Thanksgiving dinner. It gives us a chance to spend quality time all together as a "Family". Thank you for sharing this wonderful banner with us all.

What an adorable banner! Thanks so much for sharing! We don't have many traditions for Thanksgiving...it rotates houses and you never know who will show up--but I always get out the Advent Wreath and calendar to get ready, since Advent follows Thanksgiving so closely...putting it together and lighting the first candle is so special to all of us. ksjennings(at)gmail(dot)com

Love the acorns. What a great banner. My favorite tradition is decorating the tree with my kids. They are grown now but at least one if not all will be here to help me put the tree up. I still use all the handmade decorations the kids made growing up. We have such wonderful memories.

Ashley said...

Love your banner! It is wonderful!!! My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is just being able to be with my whole family.

Love your banner. I am so inspired from this blog hop. Hope to get to making my own banners for the upcoming holidays soon. My craft area is also my dining room table so I understand completely what you have to go through to get ready for Thanksgiving. I go through the same thing for Christmas Eve's with my husband's family.

My favorite tradition is plain and simple having supper with friends and family and reminiscing about the good ole' days! Love the use of acorns for the banner and it says it all about my favorite part of Thanksgiving (Family). TFS!

I love the acorns on your banner. The Doodle Charms cartridge is on my wish list. I love the turkey dinner and wish that I could always spend it with my family, however we are all spread out so that doesn't happen. TFS Susan

I LOVE that you've used Acorns for your backdrop! That is SUCH a cute idea! I also really love that you've textured the top of the acorns!

My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is that we always go around the table and each say something we're thankful for. I remember thinking it was so dumb when I was a kid; I think that's WHY it's my favorite tradition now.

Love the acorns, so stinkin' cute! As far as tradition, the only thing I can think of other than getting together with family and friends is playing Left,Right, Center (a dice game) with the whole group of people! (my fav cause I won last year!) LOL

Cat said...

I want to make a banner like this. I don't have the acorn, but I want to say FAMILY. I'll think of something for the base!

Thanksgiving tradition-oh no problem here knowing what it is...watching Dad carve the big bird! He gives me the end which is the first cut.

What a cute idea! I love the acorns!! :)

My favorite thanksgiving tradition is going around the table and everyone shares what they are thankful for! Tomorrow is my one year anniversary with my hubby (been together 9 years but just married this last year). I am thankful for him and for the new wonderful family I have!!



Hugs!!

Of all the banners I have seen in the past few hours I think this one is my favorite. I love the fall of the year and you captured that with the acorns and fall leaves. Love this and the texture you put on the top of the acorn to.

Michele said...

What a cute and creative banner!! I love how you used the acorns as the base! CUTE!!

Our Thanksgiving tradition is to be together as a family and to all sit down together to eat. It used to be at my mom's house, and she was the BEST host!! Ever since my accident, though, my aunt took over. It's still nice, but it's just not the same, you know what I mean? Anyway, the important part is that we're all together!!

Thanks so much!

Your banner is so full of family I love it! My mother-in-law has saved one Thanksgiving art project from each of her grandchildren (two of whom are my boys) from when they were small children. She sets them out every year. The boys love seeing their things from when they were little and mine are 21 and 13. It's very sweet.

I think my favorite tradition for Thanksgiving is watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I cannot think of a year where I did not watch any part of the parade! I so enjoy watching it, to me it is what ushers in the holiday season and helps me to be thankful for all I have
