Happy Thanksgiving - Gather Together

Happy Thanksgiving - Gather Together

I love traditional scrapbooking and using Stampin' Up products makes it come together nicely. Their products all coordinate beautifully, making it fun and easy to build layouts. 


The base of the layout is Pumpkin Pie with Early Espresso and mats in Cajun Craze. I stamped the pumpkin, leaves, and wheat ahead of time using Cajun Craze Classic Stampin Pad on Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze cardstock. Next I die cut the two larger leaves on the top left and embossed and die cut the leaves on the right with Gathered Leaves Dies. The colors I used for that are Mossy Meadow, Real Red, and Pumpkin Pie. The embossing leaves which die cut also are so fabulous! Spray the cardstock with a bit of water before embossing and the effects are fabulous! 

I am in love with Buffalo Plaid and notice plaids and checks everywhere in all the stores - Stampin' Up nailed it with the popularity of check and plaid. I made four panels of the Buffalo Check - being careful to line up correctly. I attached two panels together twice and trimmed them down for the two pieces on the top left and bottom right. 

The 3x4 picture place holders are matted in 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 Cajun Craze. The wheat is stamped on 1 1/2 x 3 Very Vanilla and matted in Early Espresso cut at 1 3/4 x 3 1/4. The 4x6 picture place holder are matted 4 1/4 x 7. The Gather Together piece is 4 1/8 x 7 1/8 and the Season of Thanks will be my typed journaling area and that mat is 6 1/4 x 7 1/8. 

"Happy" came from A Wish for Everything stamp Set and "Thanksgiving" uses Early Espresso cardstock die cut with Word Wishes dies three times and stacked. I used Stitched Nested Labels as frames for each of the sentiments. 

I enjoyed capturing my moments thinking of the fun and family get-together we'll have this week. I hope you capture your moments too and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! If you have any questions or comments, please contact me.
