Thankful for Us by Niki Rowland November 23, 2017 07:00

Hi again! Niki here today with a 'thankful' layout. We don't have Thanksgiving here in the UK so this was a bit of a challenge for me but I am still thankful for many things, most of all my crazy family, so it was nice to write about how thankful I am for them.
I've used the Many Thanks cut file from the store, which has lots of Thankful sayings.
I cut two of the files from this set: Thankful and Grateful, both from white card.
I positioned these at the top and bottom of my layout. I added clusters around them and when I was happy with the positoning, I stitched them both through with machine stitching.
I added my photo and the word 'Love' and finished off the title at the top with extra alphabet stickers. I also extended the title at the bottom with the word 'heart' plus some smaller alphabet stickers too. I stitched through these too.
I finished off by writing my journaling and I also added some gold Heidi Shime and some sequins.
Even though this layout is really simple, I enjoyed working 'white on white' and keeping things to a minimum. My layouts are usually full of colour but I wanted to keep a serene tone to this layout which I think I've just about done.
Thanks for stopping by to see me, happy scrapping xx
