So thankful


{Pin}spirational Challenge #30 inspiration photo
 Don't you just love this time of year!?  I love leaves and pumpkins and the warm fall colors.  So there are lots of all of those things in this post.  Lots of pictures because there are a lot of components to this project.
 And I love that both the {Pin}spirational challenge and the JUGS challenge are these gorgeous inspiration photos.  My project is something I haven't ever done before.  I have recently seen a couple of these little tag books made out of toilet paper rolls and thought they were really cute.  Well, yesterday, we had a ladies craft time at my church and we made these little tag books.  Mostly, we just learned how to make the "pages" out of the rolls and cover them with paper.  Some people embellished theirs with a few embellies that were there, but I had a plan in mind and hadn't brought all my "toys" along.  So, I came home and played some more and this is the result:
 Cover page.  Just imagine that there are two binder rings in the holes on the left.  They didn't have enough for everyone at the craft event, so I am waiting to get mine.  But you can still get the idea of what it will look like.
Supplies:DCWV paper; SU! pumpkin cs; PTI alphabet and leaf die; Clear Dollar Stamps "Elegant Flourishes" stamped on leaf; Kaiser Kraft rhinestones; all ribbons in project are American Crafts
 Supplies: DCWV paper; Clear Dollar Stamps "Elegant Flourishes" stamp; Verve "Tall Oaks" pumpkin and sentiment
 Supplies: DCWV paper; Verve "I Chronicles 16:34" plain jane; black embossing powder; PTI "Mat Stack 2" flourish set on each side of the verse.
 Supplies: DCWV paper; PTI "Through the Trees" sentiment, "Mat Stack 2" flourishes; Verve "Tall Oaks" acorns
 Supplies: DCWV paper; Clear Dollar Stamps "Elegant Flourishes"; Verve "Tall Oaks" pumpkins and sentiment
 I am going to use this book as a "We are thankful for . . . this year" book, so the last "page" has the year and each tag, as you will see in the next picture, has a space for each family member to write what they are thankful for.  Then there is the potential to make another each year and have a great reminder of the things were are thankful for throughout the years.
Supplies: DCWV paper; PTI "By the Numbers" dies
Each tag is the same with the phrase "So thankful" and a couple lines on which to write.
Supplies (tags): Clear Dollar Stamps "Elegant Flourishes"; Verve "So happy"; the tags were cut out using a cricut machine the woman leading the craft time brought with her.

Wow, this is a lovely little album! I love that each family member will write down what they are thankful for - such a keepsake! You'll have to make another one for next year. :-)
