12 Days of Gratitude

Hello all!

I had fun creating this project and am happy to be able to share it with you today. I wanted to create a board where my family could record things that they are thankful for.

I used the fabulous (and beautiful) Advent Calendar from Silhouette America. You can find it HERE.

For the title on this board I cut out the word "Gratitude" from some Silhouette Printable Kraft Paper. I then used the Offset feature to cut out a 'shadow' effect from some orange card stock.  

After adhering those together I used some Double Sided Adhesive and cut out some small leaf designs. I then sprinkled gold glitter over top of them and adhered them to the title.

I cut out some pocket designs using the Silhouette Vellum.  Before cutting them out I resized them to a smaller size in order for them to fit onto the frame wires properly.

After adhering the pockets together I then cut out some cards (from white card stock) to fit inside the pockets.  These cards are intended for my family members to write down things that they are thankful for.

I embellished the front of the pockets with some leaf designs cut from Silhouette Adhesive Backed Cardstock and Printable Kraft Cardstock.

I also added some recent photos of my kiddos  - 3 beautiful things that I am beyond thankful for!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Designs Used:


  1. This is very clever - I love the pockets with the word bubbles.
