Our Thanksgiving, Autumn-Themed Cards & More

Yesterday many in the United States celebrated Thanksgiving, a holiday for gathering with family and friends to feast and give thanks. Of course in this year of the pandemic, many – like my family of four – did not gather in person with extended family. But we did feast and give thanks for our blessings. Here is my clan this year. Luke (age 13-1/2) to my left, Nick (age 15 and now driving with a permit!), my husband Tim and I all had some of our favorites for our dinner.

Our Fall 2020 Family Vacation

Two weeks ago my family finally made it up to “the lake” where my parents live for our second weekend up north. We had attempted two other weekends after our initial July visit, but each of those were preceded by injuries that cancelled our trips within days of when we were to leave – Nick broke a bone in his finger during gymnastics and I broke a bone in the base of my toe from running into the leg of our new couch (the night before we were to depart).

It was go good to be back, see the fall colors, and of course visit with my parents (and aunt and uncle who have a cabin next door) when we could handle the chilly fall weather and hang out outside together.

Like last time we stayed in the large room above the garage so that we had separate living quarters and could stay socially distant. This is also where my sister’s family and my brother’s family stay on the weekends they come up. So my parents clean and disinfect this room (and the outhouse) between all our visits.

We did all our cooking on the grill. Check out what my husband was wearing in this photo.

Now check out what my boys were wearing. Nick lives in shorts pretty much the whole year. And that’s a strange thing in Minnesota. In fact it got down to around 28 degrees at night that weekend. Brrrr! It was cold enough where we kept the wood stove burning in our garage room non-stop all four days.

We really enjoyed our vacation. The boys played catch with the football a few times. We drove into town for treats at Frontier, a popular store in the closest town. Tim and Nick did a bit of fishing. I enjoyed reading my Outlander book. My parents and my Aunt Jan & Uncle Don met up with us at the local apple orchard one day.

We enjoyed several walks so we could enjoy the fall colors, chat, and give the boys time to run off some energy.

And though the temps were low and the wind was high, we HAD to make s’more’s over an open fire one night, too.

I’m taking a bit longer to heal than I had hoped, and it’s slowing me down. But I am going to heed my doctor’s orders that I received a few days ago and stay off my feet as much as I can for the next couple weeks. You may see a slow down or lull in my posts, but I’m trying to put my health first (which is super hard for me since I love creating and sharing so very much). My hope is that this rest will allow me to be back where I was before my injury on August 20th.

Four More Card Versions From One Fold

On Wednesday, September 16, I shared in my YouTube Live how to take the same folded piece of 5-1/4″ x 12″ designer paper and create five different card folds.

I didn’t have finished samples of four of those five cards at the time. But I’ve completed them now, and I’m excited to show them to you!

Here is the one that opens like a traditional card. I used the Healing Hugs Stamp Set like I had for one of the cards I shared Wednesday. Refer to that post if you wish to shop for products I used so you can recreate this card. The only extra product I added was the pack of Gold Foil Sheets. And that product is listed and linked to my online store at the bottom of this post.

See how to make five different card variations from one folded piece of designer paper! I shared two finished cards with one of the folds a few days ago. And now I have finished versions of the four other folds. All of these feature the Christmastime is Here Designer Paper.

The outside sentiment piece measures 1-7/8″ x 2-1/2″ with a 2-1/8″ x 2-3/4″ Gold Foil Layer underneath. The inside sentiment piece measures 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ with a 2-3/4″ x 4″ Gold Foil Layer underneath. The ribbon measures 19″.

These other three are created using the supplies listed at the bottom of this post. They are all Christmas cards featuring the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set.

This one is the double-pocket card. I actually DID end up using Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure the sides even though in my video I mention that you can just use the ribbon to hold it shut. Nah…I changed my mind. I wanted a little more stability.

FYI…This Christmastime is Here Designer Paper is hard to find in the online store. And it’s not in any of the catalogs. It was offered last year as an online “while supplies last” only special offer item. So be sure to click on the link below which will bring you right to it. Or do a search for “Christmastime” with a capital C or for 152154 which is its order number. But yes, currently it is not under the category of Patterned Paper or Specialty Paper.

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

My boys keep growing! What? LOL When I first started blogging in 2013, they seemed like babies. They won’t let me call them my babies anymore. My goodness, yes. They are young men. Nick is now in 9th grade – a freshman in high school and just days away from turning 15. Luke is an 8th grader and now 13-1/2. They are ready for this pandemic to be done (as are all of us). But they let me take a first week of school photo before they had to head back inside to start their distant learning.

They came out to take a first week of school 2020 photo, and then went back in for Distance Learning. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I had so much fun finishing up these fun fold cards. I hope they gave you some creative inspiration! Which one was your favorite of all the folds?

Simple Cute Fruit Cards & Needing Well Wishes

I shared a couple simple cards that I made with the new stamp set called Cute Fruit at the beginning of my Online Paper Crafting Class that I aired and posted on July 15th. Click here to see that video. And then I made a couple more cards soon after the video ended. So today I thought I quickly share photos of all four of these quick and easy cards.

These are the two I shared in the video. The one on the right I CASEd from a card sample in the Beginner Brochure.

The one in the Beginner Brochure had slightly a softer look. I used a couple darker colors to stamp my sentiment, watermelon rinds, and pineapple tops.

And this card was my own design. Those faces images are just too funny.

Then I played around some more. For this third card I inked up only half of the citrus images to get a slice of orange. I gave the kiwi slices some seeds and added some dash mark designs in the corners by drawing them with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker. And I used that same image but stamped it in blue for a blueberry.

Then for this last card I wanted only one melon to stand out to really emphasize the wording in the sentiment. So I added a couple of those Fine Tip Glue seeds I made on July 15th and stamped the extra watermelon slices in Smoky Slate.

(The lighter gray is Smoky Slate stamped off: stamped onto scrap paper first and then stamped on the card. So it’s the same gray just a lighter version.)

You can find the Cute Fruit set here in the online store. Or you can find it on pages 6 & 7 of the Beginner Brochure. (FYI…it is not shown in the Annual Catalog.)

I hope these “sweet” cards inspired your creativity!

If you tuned in to my Online Paper Crafting Class this past Wednesday, you may be curious about my son’s injury. The diagnosis is a fracture. Yep…he fell on his pinky finger when he dismounted off the parallel bars in gymnastics Tuesday night, and fractured his largest phalange bone.

Nick’s gymnastics 2020 injury! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The orthopedic doctor was able to straighten it a bit at that first appointment using finger pulls and manipulation. We went home with his hand wrapped in a supportive bandage while the doctor consulted with the surgeon. But by the time we came back today to get it casted, it had moved back to the more crooked look you see here in this x-ray. So the doctor is once again going to consult with the surgeon. In the meantime while things are once again up in the air, his finger is now in a sturdier brace.

I’m getting impatient though, because the bone is already beginning to fuse incorrectly. And I’m worried that if we don’t do corrective surgery (and do it soon), this may affect the way he plays piano, plays the drums, or participates in gymnastics and other sports.

A Much Needed Family Get-Away

We had a much needed family vacation this weekend.

Our July 2020 family vacation to Caribou Lake! Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Our first trip away from home together in this crazy year of 2020 was this past weekend at Caribou Lake, my mom and dad’s, Grandma & Grandpa Tessman’s lake home up in northern Minnesota. They converted the large room above the garage into a make-shift bed & breakfast.

They added a larger refrigerator, a griddle, a toaster, a few other appliances, dishes and a dish-washing set up.

Our July 2020 family vacation to Caribou Lake! Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We had access to the grill, the fire pit, the outhouse, the hose, and the lake for bathing. My family, my sister’s family and my brother’s family are now taking turns coming here to visit Grandma and Grandpa, stay “socially distanced” and not enter their home/the cabin, and enjoy time away on vacation at the lake.

We pulled in on Friday around noon after nearly a 4-hour drive, and I was so overjoyed to see my parents in person that I started crying. I had no clue I was going to react with such emotion. We’ve connected with them via Zoom and Facetime over the last four months. But it’s just not the same as seeing them in person.

This is their beautiful log home from the front. (For those of you who have followed my blog posts for awhile, you may notice they’ve added grass! My dad is also keeping himself busy by doing other landscaping projects.)

This is the lakeside view on the back. You can see it’s quite larger than it appears from the front.

We could cook our meals on the grill and then enjoy our dinners together – my parents sitting on that upper deck attached to the house and us on this lower deck.

Our July 2020 family vacation to Caribou Lake! Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Most of our activities involved being on the water. Nick (14-3/4), Luke (13-1/2), and I went down to the dock right away the first day and had fun on the paddle boards. I got in on their battles, too! But they were kind when they pushed me off into the water…no injuries for this 50+ year old! Yay!

Our July 2020 family vacation to Caribou Lake! Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

When my husband, Tim was done napping, we launched our new boat in the water! Yep…we just bought a used boat the weekend before and took it out for the first time this weekend! It’s our fun, new COVID-19 Summer 2020 toy.

Our July 2020 family vacation to Caribou Lake! Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Tim and Nick fished a bit that afternoon. And later in the evening after dinner and visiting some more, Luke and I joined in and Nick drove all four of us around the lake.

Saturday started out rainy. I got drenched just using the outhouse in the morning. The rain didn’t last long, but it remained humid, cloudy and warm the rest of the day. It was swimming/bathing time after breakfast. We went into town for ice cream after that. And after lunch, Luke and Tim went on a hike while Nick and I went back into town so Nick could practice a bit of driving in a church parking lot. They are growing up!!

That evening after dinner and visiting on the deck again, Tim and the boys all went fishing. We tried to start the campfire that night, but we couldn’t even ignite the paper because of the humidity.

Nick and I decided to end the evening on a good note, though. So we got on our suits and went down to the dock for a night swim. It was quick because of the mosquitos buzzing our heads, but it was refreshing and it cooled us off.

Our July 2020 family vacation to Caribou Lake! Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Sunday proved to bring the best weather. So we did as much as we could to enjoy the outdoors: tubing, a bit of swimming, fishing and a successful but quick campfire to roast marshmallows and enjoy s’mores. (The mosquitos were thick once it got dark out.)

It was sad to say good-bye. But we have one more weekend on the calendar reserved. Grandma and Grandpa helped us get our boat back out of the water by coaching Tim and I from afar.

Our July 2020 family vacation to Caribou Lake! Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We were on the road by 11:30ish, and we arrived home a little over an hour ago. (I wrote most of this post while we were driving home.)

We haven’t figured out how to safely visit my husband’s mom (Grandma Jandro) and his side of the family during this darn pandemic yet. They live a good distance away as well (a few hours in the opposite direction). But there is no way to spend time with them unless we want to risk sharing germs. Anyone have an RV they want to sell us for cheap!? Hahaha!

I hope you are all staying safe, happy, healthy and sane.
