Today kicks off a new challenge over on Cut It Up - the challenge is to do a Thanksgiving project and of course you must use a die cut. The prize up for grabs - Stampin' Up! goodies from Norma Pimentel. I have been using this design team position to do some scrapbooking - it's been a great motivator for me but I paused on this challenge - you can only have so many layouts of a turkey dinner KWIM? And then I had an idea and came up with this instead:
I decided to do a snapshot of what we are all thankful for right now. I had Pezza write hers out and the rest of us typed ours up. It's so cute to look back on little kid hand writing and how they lay things out!
I got my cut files from Designs on Cloud Nine - they are part of a set that includes some ADORABLE owls I am hoping to have time for soon! I cut it all out on my Black Cat using Make the Cut software.
I gave my acorns some texture with an embossing folder and ink. Then I wanted to give my leaves some pizzazz and I knew the new Silks Acrylic Glaze colors would be perfect! Especially if I applied it using Saran Wrap.
I hope y'all can join us for the challenge on Cut It Up! Head over to the blog and check out the rest of the Design Team's projects!
