So Very Thankful at The Kraft Journal

Hello, my crafty friends!  It's time for another great new challenge at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog, and this week's theme is "So Thankful".  If there's one thing that I most certainly's SO THANKFUL.  I know that ALL my blessings, big and small, come from the Lord.  I wanted to make a mini album to capture special memories of this year's Thanksgiving celebration at our home as we thank God for all that He has given us.

For this week's challenge theme "SO THANKFUL",  I wanted to make a Thanksgiving mini album to celebrate my family.  I started my project with a Corrugated Kraft Square and covered that with harvest colored cardstock.  I decorated the front of my mini album with lots of Kraft Outlet goodies including a Canvas Tag, three stickers from the Jenni Bowlin Memo Book, some Jenni Bowlin Black Label Stickers, a Jenni Bowlin Rubbings (torn notebook), Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Buttons, orange and black Baker's Twine, a Tim Holtz Memo Pin, some Black & White Polka Dot Washi Tape and Music Washi Tape, and a Tiny Wooden Clothespin.

To make the pages of my mini album, I used two Catalog Open End Lunchbag Kraft Envelopes to create photo pockets to save family memories.  These Catalog Envelopes are the perfect size for saving larger photos, and they cost just 50 cents each!!  They can be easily bound together to create pocket pages in albums.  I bound my book using black 7 Gypies Gaffer Tape.  Almost all of what was used to create this album can be found at The Kraft Outlet.  Treat yourself to some new supplies, and come play along in our "So Thankful" Challenge this week!  Here's the back view:
