Want2Scrap Leaf Album!
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the USA and no matter how you celebrate this Want2Scrap Leaf Album is perfect for storing those captured moments with family, friends or even personal thoughts for future generations. See HERE for all of our chipboard albums!
What are you thankful for? Of course, my first thoughts are of my family, but when I really think about it, there are so many simple things I am grateful for, that my list could go on forever!
I created this album using Want2 Scrap’s Chipboard Album Leaf by Joe Rotella as a fun way to store our Thanksgiving photos and I would like each of us to write down what we are grateful for, so I can scrapbook those thoughts in the album next to their photo, just to make it more personalized.
It was fun, but I’m not done yet. I will finish embellishing the inside when I get the photos and individual gratitude sheets placed, so I have plenty of room for those, then embellish around them.
I started out tracing the pattern on paper and cutting with scissors, but quickly discarded the scissors for an X-acto Knife and my cutting mat. That was much better! Here are a few of the pages.
Other products used were:
DCWV Harvest Gathering Stack and Cardstock Stack (from my older paper stash)
Want2Scrap 6105 Frilly Flourish Swirl-Silver Rhinestones
Want2Scrap 4306-S Silhouettes-Garden Motiff
Want2Scrap 3177 Chipboard Sentiments-Moments
TIM32823-Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs (See more color choices HERE)
This is also a fun project to do with kids (let them cut with scissors), as a family Thanksgiving activitiy when you are to stuffed to do anything else!
As we head into this holiday season, let us all keep in our minds those things which we are truly grateful for. If we do that, we are more thoughtful of those less fortunate.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Cut@Home! May you all have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend!
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
