Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Today’s Pal’s Blog Hop is occurring on a significant day in our history, 9/11. Thinking of the brave men and women who selflessly gave their lives for others, I feel grateful.

The first thing I did was use the Hand-Lettered Prose dies to cut the word “grateful” from wood textured, Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. Then, I layered each letter for thickness, and placed them on a 5 1/4″ X 4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock to make sure it fit. Whew! Not a spec to spare. I embossed this layer with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder to stick with the rustic feel.


Next, I took a cue from this month’s banner, and made a wreath. I began by using two Layering Circles Dies to make a round frame for the wreath. By using Thick Whisper White Cardstock, it blended with the background. I used Champagne, Gold, and Silver Foil for the foliage, and Copper Foil for the pinecones. I cut two boughs of each color, and two pinecones, with dies from the Beautiful Boughs die set.


After alternating, and carefully gluing the boughs to the frame, I lifted the wreath on Dimensionals, along with the letters, g-r-a-t-e-f-u-l.

The final touch was a Sparkle Glimmer spring, cut with a Frosted Bouquet die.
