Thanksgiving Layouts

Hello everyone! I took a break from scrapbooking Christmas last weekend and instead, scrapped Thanksgiving! From 2018!

Blessed: I used Reminisce background paper; Bo Bunny banner and journal spot, Elle’s Studio blue word pattern paper, and a Freckled Fawn start paper Clip. Everything else – the polka dot paper, plaid paper, hedeghot sticker, cotton sticker and the leaf sticker are from a PhotoPlay Fall collection.

The design is based on this week’s Becky Fleck Sketch at ACOT:

Bless this Home: I used Bazzill cardstock; PhotoPlay pattern papers and pumpkin stickers; Bo Bunny banner and tree cluster (fussy cut from a journal tag) and Reminisce photo corners and word stickers.

Always Stay Humble and Kind: I used Bo Bunny papers and brads; a PhotoPlay raccoon sticker; Paper Studio denim washi tape and a Reminisce title sticker

Smile: I used Bo Bunny papers, die cuts, brads and chipboard embellishments; an Echo Park stencil; Thickers alphas and a Freckled Fawn gold doily. The gold paste is actually a combination of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold and Gold Stickles. I ended up making my own gold glitter paste.

Funny story about that gold glitter paste. Saturday night, I just couldn’t find my gold modeling paste or my gold glimmer/glitter pastes. I found my Nuvo drops, my stickles, my gold gelato, and my gold high impact tattered angels paint but no pastes. So I gave up. Came into my room Sunday morning and thought, well, I better make my own since stores are closed. I tried several mixtures but didn’t like the color (too dull) or texture (too wet). Until I stepped back and made it simpler. I used my Nuvo Drops in Pale Gold and my palette knife with my stencil then came over with it with my Gold Stickles and a soft brush. Let it dry and wholla! Very pretty. I actually prefer THIS over my regular stuff. LOL. Oh and guess what? As soon as I was done with my layout, guess what I found? My gold Glitter paste! Oh well.

The gold looks SO MUCH better IRL and it ended up being rainy and cloudy on Sunday so I couldn’t take a great picture. But here’s the close up:

TFL! 🙂
