Supplies: Shimelle (368152) – Haynes Patterned Paper, (368166) – Accent & Phrase Stickers, (368171) – Photo Overlays, (368163) – Dunbar Thickers, (368162) – Fitzgerald Thickers; Haunted Hollow (368678) – Wisecrack Thickers; Cardstock (AC71259) – 12×12 White; DIY (366900) – Mini Stapler; Adhesive (AMF617-09) – This to That Foam Tab Circles; AC Silhouette Die Cut (Design ID #20102 ) – "Thank You"; Pens (PP03-62311) – Precision .03, (SF6-2001) – Slick Writer Black

How to: Cut the "thank you" design from white cardstock using a Silhouette CAMEO.  "Ungroup" the cut file using the Silhouette program and select the inner pieces of the t, h, a, and k to keep on the working surface. Drag the remainder of the cut file pieces and drag it off the grid. Cut the inner pieces of the letters using colored pieces of patterned paper. Add journaling down the right border of an 8.5 x 11 piece of white cardstock. Adhere the "thank you" die cut to the background cardstock on an angle. Add the colored inner pieces of the die cut. Ink the edges of the photo and adhere to the right side of the page, overlapping the die cut. Trim the "so happy" graphic from a Shimelle photo overlay and staple it to the photo. Add a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of the layout, following the angle of the die cut. Add gold foil heart stickers, layered chipboard embellishment, and Thickers. Add date & initials to the photo using a Slick Writer. Ink the edges of the layout.
