Give Thanks Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Whimsical Designs' Give Thanks Blog Hop!

You should have arrived from Stephanie's blog, which is also the beginning of the hop, so if you need to start the beginning of the hop, please head over there. :)


For my project, I decided to work ahead a bit and create a Project Life layout for the week of Thanksgiving. I've worked on my PL album here and there since the semester started and really plan on catching up over my holiday break, and then making it a regular feature on my blog starting in 2014.

My mom's side of the family always has an early Thanksgiving the Sunday before Thanksgiving day, and this is what this spread will primarily be about.


Obviously there aren't any pictures yet since the event hasn't happened, but I've embellished everything so pictures are ready to be put in place, and within just a few minutes the spread will be complete. I used a mixture of cards from PL kits and also made a few of my own cards using Echo Park's "Fall Reflections" paper collection, which has been an absolute favorite of mine this fall. (And yes - that's a feather in the top right of the layout).


These two cards that have writing on them are from Project Life's Mini Seasons Kit. It has lots of fun cards for holidays year round! I wrote some of my favorite Thanksgiving foods on the menu card, and wrote about a tradition we have every year. I cut the turkey silhouette using my Cameo and added some washi tape to the plaid card.


This leaf was cut using my Cameo as well, and I used Champagne Stickles around the border of the leaf. I also used some gold metallic twine from Two Berry Creative to accent the leaf, and adhered it to the card using Glossy Accents. 


This top card will be used to document the events of the holiday, and I used the turkey from the silhouette cut-out as an embellishment, adding a bit of Champagne Stickles to the turkey's feathers. I believe this 4x6 card is also from the Mini Seasons Kit.

Thanks so much for joining us in today's hop! Your next stop is Elisabetta's blog.
