paper crafters library
Today, we have a very special guest post for you!  Tracy Wegener over at over at Paper Crafter’s Library was kind enough to create this lovely card for us.  Now if you haven’t heard of this fabulous site yet, here’s a little bit about them:
The world of paper crafting is HUGE! Whether you are a beginner, or you’ve been creating for years, the sheer number of different products, tools, techniques and project ideas can be overwhelmingAfter spending 6 years helping thousands of paper crafters around the world become more successful in the creative space through her series of kits, digital tutorials and online classes, Andrea Walford began looking for a new approach to education. In 2011 she launched Paper Crafter’s Library – the first, and still to this day, only website that provides an all-in-one learning solution for paper crafters. With almost 800 videos currently in their library and 4-5 new videos added each week, Paper Crafter’s Library offers comprehensive training on products, tools, techniques, and project ideas. From beginner through to advanced, whether your interest is in stamping, card making, scrapbooking, creating 3D items or altered art – you’ll find all the resources you need to navigate the world of paper crafting in ONE place, organized and indexed so that it’s quick and easy to find.

And now for her project:


With Canadian Thanksgiving just over a little more than a week away, my thoughts have been on turkey. I love to host our family Thanksgiving dinners and with that I send out cards to our family and friends inviting them to come to our house for dinner. With turkey on my brain I sat down to create a Thanksgiving card and drew my inspiration for this card from an assortment of  May Arts beautiful ribbons!  The colors and patterns in their ribbons are a great inspration for many of my projects.  The 5/8″ Grosgrain/Dots ribbons (DD57, DD14, DD33 & DD 28) and Brown Solid/Check ribbon (KBB33) act as perfect tail feathers for the turkey accent on the front of this card.  The Orange, Red, Yellow and Brown 5/8″ Grosgrain/Dots ribbons were my starting point and then I filled in the smaller spaces around the turkey body image with the Brown Solid/Check ribbon afterward. The stamped turkey image and greeting are found in the Gobble Gobble stamp set from papertrey ink.
