Hi everyone! Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week???
I am so excited because I am hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year!
It is the first time.
We will be having my whole in-law family here for dinner.
I am a little nervous, but I think it will all be just fine, wink.
In honor of Thanksgiving I created this little Gratitude Journal.
I wanted to be able to have a small book that I could slip into my scrapbook with the traditional scrapbook
two page spread. Now I can contain everything within that spread. Love that.
I will put it in between the two page layout using a page protector that I cut down to size and then sealed with Decorative tape from the Memorabilia line. It really is neat to be able to customize page protectors doing this. I use this technique quite often actually.
The book itself is 4 1/4 x 9 3/4. It will fit nicely in a pocket page protector.
I cut three of the Memorabilia papers to 8 1/2 x 9 3/4, folded them in half and adhered them back to back.
I covered the spine with Memorabilia Decorative tape to finish it off.
I love using Teresa's envelopes as a place to stick extra embellishments, but it is also a great place to be able to write and tuck some more personal feelings.
This is where I will add pics from the day that are not included on the two page layout.
I plan on using my instax camera alot on Thanksgiving and this will be a great place to tuck those pics.
Here is a little close-up of the front cover. I like the layers. The stamps are from Teresa's line she did with Fiskars that is selling at Joann's. Love this set. Perfect for this time of year!
I have a couple of other quick little projects that I will be sharing over on my blog. Just click here to check them out!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a very very Happy Thanksgiving!
