Happy Thanksgiving week! I can’t believe it’s already here!
For today’s post, I have decided to create a set of cards that are perfect for this time of the year. I used two new cut files included in the Thanks And Giving set, as well as some leaves from the Autumn Acres set.
The first card is very simple. I backed the beautiful Give Thanks design with several patterned papers from the Heart of Home collection. I didn’t add much around it, other than the cluster in the left lower corner, as I didn’t want to take away from the elegant cut file. I just made the cluster a little bit fuller with some leaves from the Autumn Acres cut file set and fussy cut roses.
The second card allowed me to incorporate lots of patterned papers from the same collection. I love cut files like this one. They are versatile and fun.
I used foam dots to adhere it down for added dimension and embellished it with some fussy cut daisies and enamel dots.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you will feel inspired to create a set of Thanksgiving cards with the new Thanks And Giving cut file set.
Hello Pink Paislee friends! Enza here, and today I’m excited to share a Thanksgiving layout with you. To celebrate the people I am most thankful for in my life, I decided to go big with a title that takes up most of the page. I wanted it to make a statement and give the idea of what the layout is about at once.
I started by cutting the title out of the gorgeous floral patterned paper in the Turn the Page collection. I knew I wanted to stitch all around it, but I was short on time. I had to find an easier and faster way to create my stitching pattern. Instead of manually pocking the holes along the edge of the cut file, I decided to let my Silhouette do all the work. The trick here is to create an outline around the image you want to stitch and then make it into a dotted line before sending it to cut. Easy peasy! Stitching on paper has always been an enjoyable pastime for me. I also love the texture and definition it adds to my projects!
I picked a different colored thread for each of the letters as I wanted to make the title pop a little more. Once the background was ready, I worked on building several layers behind the picture. I used lots of die cuts, wood veneers, stickers, as well as fussy cut flowers and leaves.
I love all the bits and pieces in the Turn the Page collection so much!
That is all for today! I hope you enjoyed reading about my process and will feel inspired to celebrate the people you are most thankful for in your next layout.
