Thanksgiving is next week, here in the US and it always gets me thinking about who and what I’m thankful for. I usually send out some thank you cards and today, I wanted to share a layout I created with three simple things I’m grateful for right in this moment. I think these small kind of stories are so important to document.
When I want to focus on the words, I often use a full photo for my background and keep things really simple. I fussy cut the title and the “Magic Found Here” out of a few of the 3×4 and 4×6 tags that came in the November kit and used the numbers from the Good Cheer stamp set to create my list. I journaled directly on the photo, which was easy because I printed it on cardstock.
At the bottom of my layout I used the glorious new Date It Stamp (and the angels sang) and the three heart die cuts that came in the kit this month. Going with the whole idea of simplicity, I decided to flip the hearts over and use the white backs instead of the colorful side.
You can see the whole layout come together in the process video I created. I hope you’ll try documenting a few things you’re grateful for today!
