Grateful for this Life | RECIPE

Let me show you how to create this ‘Grateful’ Page!

Grateful for this Life Page

This week I decided to share my Grateful page with you instead of a handmade card. This page has literally been sitting on my desk for over a month now because I had a grand plans\ for it. Unfortunately, I never got around to executing my grand plan, which was to create a Grateful Album filled with pocket pages of things I’m grateful for. Maybe someday soon!

The DETAILS:

For this project I wanted to work with the current Mix-in Papers and Pumpkin Spice Picture My Life Cards. In the end it became just a sheet of pretty paper from the Mix-in pack and no PML cards. That’s ok though! I’ll just add a photo and call it beautiful and done.

The INGREDIENTS:

Provided is a visual list of the products used to create the cute page shown above. When you click on a link, a new browser window will open up. This makes it easier to shop my Close To My Heart Website for the items you need to create this project.

Note: The stamping portion – ‘Grateful for this life’ – is no longer available for purchase. It was the September 2021 Stamp of the Month #S2109. However, I would encourage you to add a different sentiment of your choosing or created one with Cricut Design Space.

Have questions about the ingredients listed above? Please be sure to Contact Me so I can help.

The INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Attach a 6″ x 12″ piece of pretty paper to the bottom half of the Toffee Cardstock base.
  2. Cut two pieces of Shimmer Trim to measure 1.25″ and attach, as shown.
  3. Daub the edges of a 10″ x 8″ piece of Shortbread Cardstock with Shortbread Ink. Center and attach.
  4. Dovetail the right side of a 5″ x .75″ of Paprika Cardstock. Daub with Paprika Ink. Set aside for now.
  5. Cut an angle on the right side of a 6″ x 1″ piece of Papaya Cardstock. Daub the edges with Papaya Ink. Set aside.
  6. Use THIS LINK to cut the Cricut pieces for this page. Please keep in mind that you will need the Pumpkin Spice Digital Collection to complete the cuts.
  7. Daub the edges of each Cricut piece using the same color of the piece. For example, Paprika Ink on all the Paprika pieces, etc.
  8. Assemble the pieces and attach to the page, using Foam Tape on the Pumpkin and the top main Flower.
  9. Tuck the two pieces you set aside from steps 4 and 5 under the right side of the Pumpkin.
  10. Add a title. I stamped Grateful with Harbour Ink before trimming. I also stamped ‘for this life’ onto the Papaya Cardstock piece using Harbour Ink.
  11. Use the White Gel Pens to add some detail to the Harbour Sprigs at the top of the page.
  12. Embellish the page with Gold Glitter Gems and Pink Taffeta Stickles. Let dry.
