Grateful & Thankful | Erinn Barclay November 30, 2018 07:00

Hi JustNick friends! It's Erinn here with a new layout using the Grateful cut file. This is my husband and I several years ago on our first Thanksgiving Day together.

I used the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane collection. The colors, images and sentiments in this collection are perfect for a thankful themed layout. I cut the leaves on two different colors of green paper and added them with the leaves from the collection.

I love the open letters of the words from the cut file and knew I wanted to back them with patterned paper. It's such a great way to add multiple colors and patterns. 

I made the word grateful a little bigger than the word thankful and used adhesive foam to give that word more dimension. 

I tried mixed media on this layout, which is fairly new (and somewhat scary!) for me. I'm still not quite sure how I feel about it, but it was nice to do something different. I used the Vicki Boutin watercolor set and really like how the colors turned out.

Make sure to stop back to see all the fun stuff we have in store for you in December!
