As We Gather Together…

It’s with a sincere and grateful heart I write this post.


When I first started my Stampin’ Up! business and the Lakeside Stamper blog, I had no idea the friendships and connections that would enter my life. All of you, my followers, have given me more then you know. I have a greater appreciation of the simple joys of stamping, paper-crafting and more importantly the ability to share all of this with all of you. Many of you I’ve never met and yet there’s a strong connection and bond of friendship, because of what we love to do. For you I’m truly grateful.


So, as we share the days we are given, creating our pieces of art for ourselves and others, I will think of all of you and your friendships. Keep your comments and feed back coming it’s part of what keeps me going.  -Diane  


Happy Thanksgiving


November Calendar:


For the November Calendar of course Giving Thanks and turkey came to mind. I tried to combine the two for this month. The  Season of Friendship and Voila Stamp Sets are so very versatile. See if you agree? Sorry about the "Hot Spot" under the chef but I think the Shimmer Ink caused it.



Paper:          2-1/4" x 7" Whisper White Card Stock

8" x 8" Crushed Curry Card Stock

8-1/2" x 8-1/2"  Whisper White Card Stock

Stamp Sets:        Voila

              Voila Accessories

Season of Friendship

                                The More, the Merrier (hostess set)

Ink:                       Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Dusty Durango, Chocolate Chip & Garden Green

Accessories:      Platinum Shimmer Ink, Aqua Painter, Scallop Oval & Wide Oval Punchs, Stampin' Dimensionals, Markers & Water-Color Pencils

Here's an enlargement:

And here's what I did:

I took the piece of Whisper White Card Stock and stamped the top half of the chef from the Voila Stamp Set in Basic Black Ink.  I then stamped leaves from the Season of Friendship Stamp Set in Real Red, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Dusty Durango Inks around the chef and the edge of the card stock. Of course I cleaned the stamp in between colors with my Stampin' Scrub.  On another small piece of Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the turkey  from the Voils Accessories Stamp Set in Basic Black Ink, colored it in with my Water-Color Pencils, cut it out and adhered it with 2 Stampin'  Dimensionals. The tray was colored with Platinum Shimmer Ink and an Aqua Painter. On yet another small piece of Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the greeting, "Give Thanks" from the Holiday Best Stamp Set in Chocolate Chip Ink and punched it out with the Scallop Oval Punch. I then punched out a Wide Oval out of Chocolate Chip Card Stock. I have to tell you I love the Holiday Best Stamp Set and have used it in so many projects. I layered the scallop oval onto the Chocolate Chip oval. I had these shiny leaf brads so I placed one through both ovals. Just a note here, the greeting is a tight squeeze for the scallop punch but it works as you can see. I layered everything as above and on Thanksgiving Day on the calendar I stamped the acorn from The More the Merrier Hostess Stamp Set and colored it in with my Stampin' Up Markers.

Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
