There is a chill in the air and another blanket on my bed, yes it is Autumn. With the change of the seasons our thoughts turn to holiday and family. As we prepare for family to gather for Thanksgiving, we take stock of what we are grateful for.  Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Authentique Paper’s Thankful Collection to a frame and envelopes for each of my family members. The envelopes are meant for each person to put in notes each day listing what they are grateful for….. So today’s theme is:

Grateful

Create something honoring someone you are grateful, make a card for someone you are grateful for, use the part of your stash you are the most grateful for, whatever strikes your fancy. Here’s what I created:

With all of the paper choices I actually made dozens of envelopes the hard part was choosing the ones I wanted to display.

Creating the envelopes was quick and easy with the We R Memory Keepers’ Envelope Punch Board. I made the little envelopes and chose from the hundreds of stickers to embellish the envelopes.

I chose my favorite quote sticker from the kit to encompass the feeling of the project and the feeling I want my family to have throughout this season. I added it to the top of the frame with a doily I created as well as some other embellishments.
