Supplies: Shimelle (368143) – Earhart Paper, (368146) – Resnick Paper, (368155) – Swanson Paper, (368157) – Granville Paper, (368158) – Dowdy Paper, (368167) – Cork Stickers, Clear Acrylic Stamps (368169) – See the World; Studio Calico (BP3-32244) – Brighton Pier Kissing Booth Paper; DIY (DIY-TAG-66640) – Kraft Tags, (366900) – Mini Stapler; Cardstock (AC71259) – 12×12 White; AC Silhouette Die Cut (Design ID #16548) – Flourish; Pen (PP03-62311) – Precision .03

How to: Trim patterned paper to ~5.5" high and adhere across the top of a white piece of 12×12 cardstock. Hand cut banner shapes from four other pieces of patterned paper and layer them over one another in the center of the page to form a photo mat. Add text to the photo using photo editing software and print the photo at 4×6 size. Stamp Shimelle arrows on the photo and adhere the photo over the banner shapes. Cut a flourish shape with a Silhouette and adhere it to the photo's bottom edge. Staple a Shimelle cork sticker with the mini staple, and adhere it to the center of the die cut flourish. Write the date on a DIY tag and layer the tag under the top edge of the photo. Add journaling. (If you're using your printer for your journaling like I did here, you'll want to actually do this step first.)


Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!
