Kraftie Kre8ations November Design Team Project Thankful Swatchbook

This month's Kraftie Kre8ations Design Team assignment is to create a swatchbook illustrating what we are thankful for in this month of Thanksgiving.  Since I had all these great new pictures of my family from my recent wedding, I thought I would use the pictures for my thankful project.  I am very thankful for my family and friends, new and old.

I started with a chipboard recipe card.  I did not have enough to make my book, so I used one as a template and created more.  I painted the original chipboard pieces because they were a lighter and smoother chipboard.  I covered the hand cut pieces with papers to cover the darker and rougher chipboard.  I covered the cover with some gold vellum and used some various embellishments I had lying around.

I used some very old Mrs. Grossman's gold letters for the "recipe" title.  I used some Basic Grey papers and embellishments.  I also used a gold crackle paper that I also used on my wedding invitations.  The gold flower and pearly bling were also used in various wedding projects.  I punched the holes with my crop-a-dile and laced them together with some antique brass ball chain.

Thanks for stopping by today!
