Hello! Samantha here today with a Thanksgiving layout. I love this time of year. From fall through Christmas, I just can’t get enough of all of the festive fun. To keep everything enjoyable and not stressful, I plan a lot in advance. This year I figured I could even try planning my Thanksgiving layout in advance.
Supplies: Autumn Woods Autumn Air, Autumn Woods, Autumn Woods Pumpkin Spice, Autumn Woods Washi, Autumn Woods Puffy Stickers, Autumn Woods Cardstock Stickers, Give Thanks 3D Stickers, Kraft Card Stock
Since this is going to be a Thanksgiving layout, I wanted to build my layout around the Give Thanks 3D Stickers. They pair beautifully with the Autumn Woods collection, which is full of deep purples, rich browns, soft teal, and pumpkin orange with pops of white, yellow, and green.
Once I had a rough idea of what paper and stickers I wanted to use, I had to decide how many photos I wanted to take and use on my layout. We host Thanksgiving. I love it, but it’s busy, and I’d rather spend time with my family than fuss over photos. With that in mind, I decided two pictures will be enough. I plan on taking one picture of everyone gathered and one picture of the food.
To give myself an idea of what the finished layout will look like with photos on it, I cut photo mats to use as placeholders for the photos. I plan on using a 4″ x 6″ photo and a 4″ x 4″ photo, so I cut photo mats in 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ and 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″.
With this naked layout finished, all I will have to do is print out my two photos and attach them to my page after thanksgiving. Prepping this page ahead of time is an easy way to keep my holidays documented without feeling overwhelmed.
