Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Bella Blvd fans! We are so thankful for each and every one of you!
Today we have a special guest with us, Stephanie Buice!
Hey everyone! Stephanie Buice here today sharing a few more pages from my Gratitude Documented album. This is always one of my favorite projects of the year, and even though it takes on different formats from year to year, I always enjoy the process a little more when I keep things on the simple side. Not only does it let me tell more of my own stories and things I am thankful for because I’m not having to fuss over every single embellishment, but the fact that it takes less time usually means that I will have enough time and energy to see my album to the end. (I can’t be the only one with a small drawer of unfinished scrap albums, right!?)
This year I have mostly managed to stick with a photo and a journaling card for each day, I have used the orange chipboard numbers as my daily markers to help divide it up. Although I have had to play a bit of catch up here and there this format has been pretty easy to keep up with.
I’ve added little bits of embellishments and paper pieces here and there to keep things interesting, and because layering is just a fun part of my style that I enjoy doing. If that part isn’t for you, you can skip over it and personalize in ways that meet your needs and own style.
Some of my days called for a little less journaling than others, so I used some tags that I had on my desk from my last project and simply used my typewriter to add my journaling. I added in some washi tape and enamels and the corresponding chipboard numbers to finish off those days.
I should probably put a disclaimer of my love for the paper tabbies that Bella and Illustrated Faith offer, I’m not sure any project I make is ever complete without them! As you can see I’ve added a few to the tops of some of my photos and pages in my album as well, as long as you tuck them in low enough along the top row they still fit in the album perfectly.
Well, that’s it from me today! I hope you’ve enjoyed the little peek at some of my album pages and that I’ve encouraged you to give it a try if you’re not doing so already. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
