TIP: Using large die cuts is a simple way to create a dramatic background. It's my go-to design aesthetic when I want to tell a themed story.

How To: Cut six feathers in various sizes ranging from 9 to 5 inches from different patterned papers. Layer across a sheet of white 12x12 cardstock gluing only the center of the feathers so the edges lift a bit. Place a 4x4 photo under a feather on the lower right side. Tuck an envelope die-cut just behind the photo and layer a leaf wood button on top of the photo. Cut a strip of black and white patterned paper to edge the bottom of the layout. Layer a strip of gold foil washi tape over the striped paper. Layer white foam title on top of the feathers. Add a stamped date, journaling and black paint mist.
I think Thanksgiving is one of the perfect times to show how grateful you are to someone that you love. I chose to give cute treats for my hubby who has always been there for me. This time I used the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection.
1. Decorate your chocolates using patterned papers that have a Thanksgiving color combo. Wrap your chocolate using it, but don’t cover it all.
2. Choose an acetate that looks perfect with your plan. It could be ‘thanks’ or any posivite words.
3. Choose another patterned paper. Do some cutting, after that paste it together with the acetate.
4. Take the vintage thread and tie it.
5. Paste the photo of some one that you love and decorate it with pretty cork bow, Thickers shape and also a wood button.
Done! You can give it at Thanksgiving dinner and don’t forget to say how grateful you are. It's a simple thing that you can do but it has special meaning.
This Thanksgiving themed layout came together quickly with the help of Amy Tangerine’s Finders Keepers collection. The sentiments and wood grain touches are perfect for the fall season.

I love creating a layout that has big titles and the Thickers always come to the rescue! But what if you want to be more creative than before or you've run out of Thickers?! Don’t worry, I have some tricks to help you! For this layout, I wanted to take it to a new level and so I used sequins and also added some script using watercolor pencil.
Because this is the layout about me, I wanted to use ‘Hello Me’ as the title of my ‘me’ layout. I decided to trace the "Me" using pencil and paste some sequins. It takes some extra time to finish it, but believe me, the final result will be amazing!
Next I tried to be confident and show my handwriting. I chose pink watercolor pencil and wrote ‘hello’ on white cardstock.
I pasted my ‘hello’ right in the middle of the layout and decorated it with some puffy stickers. For the smaller titles, I used stickers and ephemera and put them in the middle near the bottom.
It’s ok if you want to use some titles in different textures and sizes on a single layout as long as they match with another and are balanced.
Making titles the focus of your cards is easy and fun with DIY Shop 3’s large silver foil alphabet stickers and Documentary’s phrase Thickers!

How to: For the pink card, start with a base of pink cardstock and fold in half. For the front, use another piece of pink cardstock and score lines using a score board. Adhere to front of card with foam adhesive. Place title using silver foil alphabet stickers. Add circles of black cardstock scattered over the front. For the yellow card, cut a piece of yellow cardstock to size and fold for card base. Weave half inch strips of black cardstock adhered to the front of the card. Trim off the excess. Add a punched circle of white cardstock to the card and adhere title sentiment. Trim gold rimmed tags and adhere to card. Adhere gold enamel dots.
Short bio: Ashli Oliver (aka soapHOUSEmama) lives with her husband and four girls, age 9 and under, in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia. Ashli is a recovering graphic designer and when she is not busy homeschooling her kiddos, you can find her drinking copious amounts of coffee while playing with pretty paper in her studio. Not only does Ashli love documenting her family's memories, but she finds great joy in the creative process...which, in her case, usually involves lots of messy, painty fun!
How did you get started scrapbooking? While expecting my third child, I decided to try my hand at making her announcements. A dear friend took me to a local scrapbook store to shop for supplies and the rest, as they say, is history!
