November's Guest DT Diva Nancy from The Nickel Nook- part 3

Hello everyone! It's Nancy back today with another group of pages from my little House Mini Album. This is also my last post as Guest Design Team Diva here in the Mansion, so let's get to it...

Our Home Is Filled With Gratitude and Thanksgiving! This page was decorated with my favorite Martha Stewart punch, some stickers and a bit of bling. It's a fold-out and it's just held down in one corner with a photo turn.

The inside was actually kind of a mistake! lol I intended to stamp the center medallion and some of the other accent pieces, leaving the middle space empty to write my Scripture verses.  As I was doing this I was listening to some great music and I totally zoned out and got carried away with my stamping. Rather than redoing it, I decided to cut out the leaf tags and use those for my verses instead! :o) The fold-out is one page from a Squash Book design. I didn't bother with a template for this one. If you'd like to know how to do this fold you can probably tell by looking, or just google Smash Book and you'll find LOTS of instructions!!

Our House Is Filled With Abundant Blessings! What could be better after a "Gratitude and Thanksgiving" page than a Blessings page! This is literally my overflowing bag of blessings! I used a small paper bag and folded up the bottom to form a tag pocket. I added a bead charm I made and a butterfly charm I received as a gift.

I wrote verses on strips of paper and stuffed them in my bag. God is so good! He gives us abundant blessings! Please take the time to click on the pictures and read the verses!

Our Home Is Filled With Love! I had just a regular fold-out planned for this page but then I saw a variation that Donna did in her video and it was just the twist I needed! Thank you Donna! I'll put a link in the supply list.

You can't really tell the difference in the photo when it's closed, but when you open it up you can see that the front is cut in a heart shape.

Our Home Is Filled With Comfort! When I think of "things" that provide us with comfort, one of the first that come to mind is a warm blanket, so I made one for my page pocket.

Then I filled it with tags that also bring comfort; a pot of soup, a pot of tea and a cup of tea, and a warm bubble bath.

On the back of the tags I added more Scripture verses. The Lord is the greatest comfort of all!

That's it for today! Thanks so much for your interest in my mini! Please let me know if you have any questions! Thank you to the Creative Scrapbooking Divas for having me as their guest for this month! There is a complete list of supplies used over on my blog at http://thenickelnook.blogspot.com I wish you all a Very Happy Day! :o)

Wow Nancy, I love this! I really like the way you made each page so unique and that little blanket page is the cutest I've seen! Just makes me want to snuggle up to it.
Your creative fix for the fold out page made me chuckle...great save!
This little mini album would be wonderful to pull out every year around the holidays to remind everyone of all the blessings we may take for granted.

Thank you very much for your encouragement Karen! It's that music...it gets me every time! But I keep listening to it so I always have something to blame all my goofs on! lol...Nancy :o)
