This week is our 2011-2012 Design Team's last week here on the Bella blog. But before saying our final goodbye, we still have a ton of projects from these designers to share with you. Today we have lots and lots of projects to share with you, all focusing on the Thankful collection.
“Thankful for You" by Becky Williams.
The Cute Cuts sheets have journaling spots and other accents that are great for layouts and other projects. I decided to use the "I am Thankful for..." journaling card as the basis for my page and my title, layering part of the focal picture over the card. I cut the "Thankful" word tag from the tear strip on the patterned paper.

“Love You”, by Julie Johnson.
These pictures of my daughter and her boyfriend were taken only a few weeks ago at my sisters wedding. It was a gorgeous day up in the mountains and the area was perfect for taking a few snapshots. When I developed these photos I couldn't wait to use this collection. Even though "Thankful" is wonderful for showcasing your fall photos it's also very versatile, such as everyday moments from a beautiful summer day. For this layout I layered some of the pattern papers and then cut a few borders and shapes to add to the layout. I hand punched a few flowers and added the wooden buttons to the centers. I must say these are the PERFECT buttons for this collection, don't you think?

“Thankful For You”, by Sarah Klemish.
I started with the Turkey Tracks patterned paper for my background. I layered strips of patterned paper and added the scallop sticker border at bottom. After adding my pictures I added the title and journaling strips. Super-fast and simple!

“Blessings”, by Sarah Klemish.
I started with a brown patterned paper background. After layering pieces of patterned papers I added my photos. I added the journaling strips and flower embellishments. Last I added the date. Super simple, with the focus on the pictures.

“Pumpkin Head”, by Kathy Martin.
There’s nothing like autumn! Cool crisp days, turning leaves, a trip to the pumpkin patch and pumpkin pie! I love the way the new Bella Blvd Thankful collection captures everything I like about the season! The pumpkins from the Borders paper, Ciao Chip and Just Write stickers are ideal for this photo of my son in his pumpkin hat.

"Happy Turkey Day" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
Of course I had to cut that cute turkey out of the Cute Cuts sheet! What could be more perfect for a 'happy turkey day' card?! Thanks for looking!

"Love Life" card, by Laura Vegas.
I love this "Love Life and life will love you back" card from the Cute Cuts patterned paper. I thought it was perfect for making a super quick card. I distressed the edges and adhered the piece with pop dots for extra dimension, adding a few strips of Designer Tape underneath.

Blessings Jar, by Morgan Bandkowski.
The Blessing Jar is made from a Mason Jar I had sitting around the house. I put some kraft crinkle paper on the bottom & then filled out little strips of paper with blessings in my life. I am going to have my family members fill out little strips of paper on Thanksgiving & add them to the jar. It will be nice to reflect on our blessings each year.

Thankful Candles, by Morgan Bandkowski.
We always have the family over for Thanksgiving, so I thought it would be a wonderful idea to create some altered projects with the Thankful line. The pillar candles are great because the wax goes into the center and not on the outside so you don't have to worry about the paper catching on fire. Although they would be pretty even if you don't light them :)
