Thankful Grateful Blessed Layout by Julie Schinkel

Hi everyone! It's the second last day of 2020 which makes this my last Bee Arty blog post for 2020. What a year this has been! Let's hope 2021 will be a lot kinder to us all and that we can get back to our 'normal' lives as soon as possible.
Now on to today's project which is a layout created with the gorgeous new collection by Michelle Grant called "Grateful Heart".  Here is the completed layout plus a quick tutorial on how I created this layout.

To start, cut a one inch frame from the "Hope" 12x12 paper (B side). Trim a quarter of an inch from each side of the "Together" 12x12 paper (B side). Adhere to the frame on an angle to form the base. Lightly ink around the edge with black archival ink.

Cut out the large doily from the "Faith" 12x12 paper, place in the middle of the layout base and lightly trace around the doily. Fussy cut all of the remaining floral elements and set aside.

Random stamp to the top left and the bottom right of the photo frame area and around the page as shown in the image below. Stamps used were from the "Heartfelt" Clear Stamp Set and the script stamp from the "Bokeh" Clear Stamp Set and stamped with black archival ink.

The next steps require some fussy cutting. I've fussy cut all of the elements but for this layout you'll need just the pieces shown. Note: I did leave a few out of the final layout at the time this photo was taken. You can still add them to your layout if you wish.
These elements were cut from the "Faith", "Blessed" and "Gathers" 12x12 papers. The orange bird cage is from the "Family" 12x12 paper.

The large doily was cut from the "Faith" and the remaining pieces from the "Family" 12x12 papers.

Adhere the large doily to the centre of the base with the smaller black doily on top. Arrange the remaining pieces to form a photo mat and adhere to your photo. I have used a 3"x5" photo for this layout. Arrange and adhere all other elements as shown in the final layout, some of which have been popped up with foam tape. I added in the "Thankful, Grateful, Blessed" at the last minute, these were cut from the "Family" 12x12 paper.

Here are some close ups of my final layout to show you how I've embellished the page.
