The One with the Grateful for You Layout

Saturday, November 5, 2011


How to: Drop dark brown mist across a cream grid background. Die cut lots of different styles of leaves from lots of different fall-colored patterned papers and cardstock. Sew a running stitch using brown thread down the middle of each leaf. Glue a photo to the center of the layout then twirl the leaf garland around the photo, gluing the leaves in place as you go. Place a Thickers title in a curve across the top of the leaves and frame the title with flourish stickers. Trim the border from a piece of chalkboard paper and cut it into two brackets; adhere them on the left and right edges of the layout. Add chalkboard labels to the top right and bottom left sides then write journaling on top with a white pen. Attach three fabric brands to the bottom right side. Tie blue twine in a bow around the right edge. Easy as pumpkin pie!

Tip: I think this is the first time I've used black on a layout in YEARS. It's a fun contrast to my usual rainbow bright pages!
