gratitude tag album

gratitude tag album

I am always looking for ways to practise gratitude and being the Month of Thanksgiving I wanted to celebrate the season with my own gratitude mini. A place to hold my favorite gratitude quotes and a place to celebrate a little bit of creativity as well. So I set to work to create my own gratitude tag mini album.

Of course I began with the Minc for some shimmer and shine to my cover. I printed off that grateful word onto some vellum using my laser printer and then ran it through my Minc machine with some gold foil.

Using some gold glitter cardstock from my stash I die cut that leaf shape.

I then used some of the soft pattern papers from the Carefree paper pad to fill the pages in my  mini album. I trimmed a square shape and ran this through my typewriter to add my quote before adding some stickers from the Carefree collection.

Here I cut a circle from pattern paper and layered it over that gorgeous floral pattern paper from the Carefree collection. I then used my typewriter to type out my quote onto some white cardstock, trimmed it onto strips and layered it onto my card.

I layered some of the Carefree stickers of this  pretty pink pattern paper for a soft effect.

I love that I can take my tags in and out of the ring to add more and to hang them up for daily reminders.

Again I ran this trimmed tag shaped piece of pattern paper through my typewriter for my quote. I used pop dots on some of the stickers for added dimension and shadow.

Finally another tag trimmed and run through my typewriter. I sanded the edges of each of my pieces of pattern paper for some subtle texture as well.

I think I am going to add to my tag mini album as the month progresses to celebrate more of the ways  am grateful!
