Hi everyone, Kelly Klapstein here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.  One of the reasons I love calligraphy and hand lettering is because it comes in very handy during special occasions and entertaining. For Thanksgiving, I made these pumpkin place cards, which are quite simple and fast. In fact, I made them a couple of hours before my guests arrived for dinner! They are perfect for any Fall theme event aside from Thanksgiving, like Halloween, a Country theme dinner, or even a rustic wedding. If you’re not confident about your writing on these place cards, then just stamp the names or print the names on the computer and glue them on. Here is a video tutorial to help you make these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2p9Iw-_gUk I hope you are able to enjoy this creative art form as much as I do. Breathe. Write. Relax.

Sometimes it takes perspective to really make you think about your world in a different way. In May of this year, I was given news of a close friend’s health diagnosis. A diagnosis that nobody wants to hear. She then set out on a courageous journey. She was to fight as hard as she possibly could, despite the fact that it seemed impossible. And also, she was to spread as much joy and kindness to all the land near and far. She built a bucket list and crossed them off her list. But this bucket list wasn’t “go to France” or items like that. It was items such as “knit 30 newborn hats for the hospital”. She did random acts of kindness, she hugged everyone she met and she gave thanks. Let me repeat. She gave thanks. She continues to breathe those words and write those letters. She is battling…

In September, Kelly Klapstein has been Guest Designer over at the Quietfire Design blog.  On Friday she shared her second project, a gorgeous Thanksgiving card. SUPPLIES: Quietfire Design stamps and die; Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock; FabScraps patterned paper; Clearsnap Ink; Brother ScanNCut; May Arts Ribbon twine.
