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.
Hi Pink Paislee friends! Happy Halloween!!! How I love this holiday! I grew up in Italy so I did not celebrate it until I moved to the States, but I have to say it has become one of my favorites. Lots of fun costumes, trick-or-treating, and especially candy! The layout I am sharing today features the Spellcast collection, with its amazing colors and patterns.
I started by backing a cut file with many patterned papers from the collection. I love the traditional black and orange, but also the pink and blue hues that, although a little unusual, contribute to the creepy Halloween feel.
Black and white photos were a must for me on this page as a way to tone down the busy background. I added an extra layer of dark patterned paper behind them to create a thin frame and make them stand out more. I then gave them some dimension with foam tape. I also fussy cut two images from the cut apart sheet to place on both sides of the pictures.
I love the branding strips in this collection! Here I layered a couple at the bottom of the page and ruffled up the edges for extra texture. I also created a cluster of embellishments to tuck in the left corner and bring in more of the colors.
A few more chipboard stickers and a title created with the amazing alpha stickers that come in the collection finished the layout.
This collection is truly perfection! Have a happy Halloween everyone!
