Hello Pebbles friends! It’s Monique here today and I’m so happy I get to share my “Thankful” layout with you! I chose a photo of my husband and me and used the beautiful Woodland Forest collection and a Silhouette cut file I created myself to scrap this page. November last year my husband and I visited the breathtaking city of Venice together and we had such a great time. This time spent together, just the two of us, made me realise how lucky we really are, how much we have to be thankful for. Being there without the kids, gave us the opportunity to relax, enjoy the quiet (I know, Venice is anything but quiet, but you know what I mean) and overthink things we normally don’t have (or take) the time for. And that’s why I chose to scrap this photo for this week’s “Thanksgiving” feature.
When I started this page I first designed a Silhouette cut file for it. I wrote “Be Thankful – Be Grateful – Be Blessed” and arranged it in a circle on my screen and cut if out of a white sheet of cardstock. If you want it too, just click on the link below the image.
Next I chose some of the wonderful Woodland Forest papers, die-cuts, stickers etc. that I wanted to use to create my page:
I chose three different patterned papers to adhere behind the cut out words:
I layered my photo on two other different patterned papers and after machine stitching a circle on the background I adhered it in the middle of the circle. Then I started on the embellishing:
I love to embellish my pages. When I start I have a hard time knowing when to stop, I just keep adding more and more. So I added another cut file (a flower, not one of my own designs), lots of die-cuts, a wood veneer hedgehog, some cardstock stickers and a few phrase stickers.
Here are some close-ups of my layout:
The square piece of paper with “thankful heart” was cut from the “Thankful” paper:
And don’t you just adore that wood veneer hedgehog?!
I love the result and how you do too. If you’re giving this beautiful Woodland Forest collection or the cut file a try too I would love to see what you create! Please share on our facebook page or tag us in Instagram (@pebblesinc)!
