Thankful... by Karla

Remember to be Thankful

With Remembrance Day, Veterans Day, and American Thanksgiving this month, it seemed like a good opportunity to come up with a challenge of thankfulness.

So have fun, remember family & friends, enjoy and revel in all that there is to be grateful for.

Hello! Karla here today with a Thanksgiving scrapbook layout and process video for this month's Thankful Challenge! I have so many things to be thankful for, but one of the most important thing is my family, so I decided to share a layout using photos from our Thanksgiving Dinner, which was in October since I live in Canada. I went with a non-traditional colour scheme (for me anyways!) and really love how this turned out. After you check out all the closeup pics you'll see a link to a video where you can see the full process.


I used some of the wonderful aromatic Black Cherry embossing powder to emboss stitched lines around the border of my layout. The texture actually creates a stitched look, and it smells amazing!


This Vintage Time Piece stamp by Emerald Creek is one of my favourites! Be sure to check out the video below where you can see how I created a painted background and then embossed over top for a custom look.


I even coordinated a flower I found in my stash with inks and powders - so many possibilities!


I really love how these leaves turned out stamped with the Emerald Creek Maple Leaf Stamp - the Dragon's Egg and Patina Oxide powders look gorgeous together.


Here's the Process Video where you can see exactly how I created this layout as well as some tricks and tips!



Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you come up with for the Thankful Challenge, and hope you have an awesome week ahead!!

Hugs,
Karla

Hello everyone, this month's theme is "thankful" and I associate that with the Fall, change of seasons and overall the start of a cozy season with hot drinks, fireplaces and a lot of laughter.
I decided to use some of the smaller stamps from Emerald Creek to create an inspirational ATC chain. ATC stands for Artist Trading Coin, in this case. Yes, I got caught in that trend as well :)

Want to see how I put together my very first set of Artist Trading Coins? Here is the step-by-step tutorial. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed my quick video. Have you created Artist Trading Coins before? If not, why don't you create some for this month's Emerald Creek dares challenge?
