Hello, friends! Jen Schow here to show you a few fun projects for this season of gratitude. The first is a “thankful” layout. I create one every year and I pulled out the Weekend Doodles Stamp Set for this one. The wreaths seemed like a perfect home for my little “gratitudes”.
To start, I stamped and die cut several wreaths out of heavy white cardstock. I added color using my Watercolor 36 Pan Set to paint them in rainbow shades.
My typed journaling went in the center of each wreath, which I popped up on foam for dimension. I added a bit more watercolor under each one and I love the way it makes them “glow”.
Stamped hearts and words, along with enamel dots are a great accent. My favorite way to embellish in rainbow colors is tone on tone. Lastly, I added my title using the Live Your Dream Puffy Alphabet Stickers.
You can see how it all came together in the video below, or head over to the Altenew YouTube channel to watch it in HD!
I had a few extra wreaths when I was done, so I thought it would be fun to create a few simple Thanksgiving place cards with the leftovers from my Weekend Doodles Stamp Set wreaths.
These were soooo simple to create. I used the new Gradient Cardstock Sets to create the base. They were the perfect size when folded in half. Yay!
A little bit of gold splatters using the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set was a fun and festive addition.
Lastly, I wrote the names on the center of the wreath cut-out with a calligraphy marker. Done and done!
I hope you’ve gotten some new ideas for documenting this season of gratitude and thank you for stopping by!
