Hi everyone, Sally here!! It’s been a while, and can I tell you how THANKFUL I am to be back blogging here with this fantastic O team again?? I am also so very thankful to be scrapping again. I had computer issues since July!! My laptop wouldn’t tolerate any photo editing software without crashing!
One of the many things I’m thankful for, though, is that time of realizing how important digital scrapping was to me! And now that I’ve gotten a new computer (another thing I’m so very thankful for!!), I’m back in full swing scrapping!!
So, to celebrate my return to scrapping and how thankful I am for Oscraps, my laptop, Photoshop, and you, the readers, I’m going to show off some fun THANKFUL projects I did for tomorrow’s celebration at my home!
I went into the O store and found three products that I fell in love with immediately:
Ohhhhhh, these products are perfect for any thankful digital scrapper!
Here’s what I made:
Of course, I had to invite my whole family via email!! (and some more…we have 20 celebrating together tomorrow!!! eeeep!!)
All of my other projects, I created and printed out…
Each year, I do some type of crafty-something to get us all to write down what we are thankful for…
This year, we are writing on squares of fabric and I’m going to make a little thankful quilt…
so this is on my little table in my front entryway…Love!!!
This will sit next to the food…I mounted the digital page onto a piece of scrapbook paper and then mounted that onto a piece of foam core board. So fun!!! I always love to know what’s on the menu…for sure!!!
For the napkin holders, I printed out a sheet of paper from Gathering by Forever Joy, and then I cut it in strips. I took one strip and wrapped it around the folded napkin. I added a leaf and on top of that, I printed out each person’s name inside of one of Vicki’s leaf outlines (on another sheet of the Gathering paper! LOVE!).
Here’s what the outline leaves looked like before I printed and cut them out:
(I had another sheet with the rest of the names on it…)
and here’s my place setting all set up!!
and a closer pic…
and a real close up of these darling name cards for the napkin holders…
What are you thankful for this year? Go and write it down, tell your friends, tell the world!! That’s why we scrapbook, right?? To tell our story! And right now, my story and my heart are full of THANKFULNESS!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our O members and guests, even if you aren’t in the US!! From all of us here at Oscraps. Have a wonderful and safe holiday!!
