Totally thankful | Michelle Whorwood November 26, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone,

Michelle here, today I am sharing a layout in the theme of 'Thankful'.  I have so many things to be thankful for in life I sometimes forget to celebrate the little things like heading to the beach after school to hang out with my kids in the glorious sunshine.  I am lucky here in New Zealand to live only 5 mins drive from a stunning beach so my layout is of my youngest playing in the sand the other day. 

I have used one of the new background cut files in store called Feather background and cut this out on some white cardstock.  I then added a piece of patterned paper behind the feather design to create a wall paper like effect on my page. 

Some close ups:

What have you got to be thankful for?  Will you play along with us this week and create a layout about something you are thankful?

Painted Cut Files and Being Thankful! November 25, 2016 07:00

Hello everyone!  This week we are focusing on everything that we are thankful for.  I am thankful that I get to be a part of this amazing team and use all these incredible cut files!  :)

 

Today I am sharing a page about family using the Mandala Background 1 and Many Thanks cut files:

Many Thanks

Mandala Background 1

 

And here is my page. Along with the cut files, I used lots of papers and bit from the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane and Memorandum collections.

 

I thought that the Mandala patterns looked like cabbages or artichokes, so I painted them a plum color in the center and a greyish green around the edges.

 

I also used the Leaves 3 cut file to cut some leaves out of moss green paper and I stitched down the middle of each leaf.

Leaves 3

 

For my embellishment clusters, I added in some mustard yellow, teal, and a dark azure to compliment the plum and moss colors.  I tried to make sure that each of my clusters had all the colors.

Finally, I used a dark woodgrain paper for a layer behind my photo and for the "Be Thankful" title.

Hope you have an Thanksgiving weekend!


Colored Leaves - Thankful November 24, 2016 07:00

Hey everyone, it's Cathy, and I'm back with another layout for you!  For this week our theme was "Thankful"  Now I live in Canada, so we had our Thanksgiving in October, but being thankful doesn't have a time frame, and even the simplest thing can make us feel thankful.  Now that autumn is ending and winter is fast approaching I wanted to take a moment and express how thankful I am for little things, like the beautiful changing leaves of autumn.  This time of year is my favorite but far.  I absolutely love the colours of fall and I love all the celebrations that go on during that time.  I also love gearing up for the holiday season too as I watch the nights get shorter.

So for my layout I used a phrase from the cut file Fall Y'all.  I really love all the phrases from this cut file and will definitely be using the others for different layouts, but for this one I chose the "colored leaves" phrase.  I enlarged it and cut it from white cardstock.  I really wanted a simplistic look to this layout, with the focus being on the photo and the title.  I am so happy with the minimal look that I ended up with, and as a bonus, this layout took almost no time to make, so I got to be thankful for that as well!
