A Grateful Heart

It's October already! That means Thanksgiving on October 8. I hope you had plenty of turkey and all the goodies that go with it! This month, we are highlighting two paper packs - Grateful Heart and Hello Pumpkin. I have used the Grateful Heart paper for my project.

If you got here from Terry Ann's blog, you are on the right track, but if you find you get lost along the way, just head back to Michelle in Nova Scotia where you will find the complete list of hoppers. As you make your way through the hop, please let us know what you think, whether it is a comment about the artwork or a request for information about the products or techniques used. Now, on to the hop.

I love the Grateful Heart paper. The golds, oranges, and greens are true Fall colours, and although they are harbingers of the cold and nastiness to come, they are pretty. I made a little mini-album this month. I saw this on Pinterest originally posted by several different people and I thank whoever was the original poster for their instructions.

I made a belly band to keep it closed and I think it looks pretty good. I wanted the front to have some decoration when the belly band was removed so added the leaves. 

Inside are two pockets on the left side where I have added tags made from the PML cards in the paper pack and other patterned paper and coordinating cardstock. 

At the bottom of the waterfall (under the last flap) is another pocket with a tag made from a PML card.

That's it for me this month. As you go through the hop, please leave a comment about our artwork. If you see something you are interested in, please contact your local Close to my Heart consultant for more information.

Please join us next month when the theme will be Christmas and the new Tis the Season paper pack. In the meantime, head over to Kristine's blog for some more great artwork!


  1. Great idea and it would be an awesome gift for the holidays too!

  2. I love the waterfall album, I have made a few similar in the past, it is a great way to get a ton of photos into a mini album. Great use of paper and embellishments.

  3. Love the waterfall, something I have not tried as yet.
