My Own Grateful Heart Layout with Monarchs

Autumn colors are my favorite. Grateful Heart Workshop Your Way is a kit with the fall colors on full display. The guidelines that come with the kit are easy to follow and will give you three 2-page layouts with enough additional material to make a number of cards. 

Here are the papers showing front and back:
This is the Workshop Your Way kit with all the elements included in the kit:

Here is my layout for the pictures I took recently in my backyard of many Monarchs feeding on their way to Mexico. 

I added an additional element to the title using the Thin Cuts Block Numbers.

This layout is for the Heart 2 Heart Pumpkin Spice challenge. I do love the pumpkins from the CTMH Cricut cartridges! 

I made a video for my YouTube channel to show how I put it together along with a cutting guide.

Supply List:
5. Fern-stitched Ribbon (Z4215) 
7. Versamat 
13. Thin Cuts Block Numbers

Here is my video with a special clip of the monarchs in my backyard:

Hope you enjoy the video! Thanks for stopping by!

A Monarch Butterfly Stamp

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge are combined here using one of my new favorite stamp sets that has a Monarch butterfly in it. This is my new favorite because my somewhat new perennial garden was filled with Monarchs along with other beautiful butterflies this week. At one point there were probably 50 or more Monarchs. That is a success to me because that was my purpose to feed bees and butterflies. 

Here is my tribute to the butterflies that brought me so much pleasure and joy this week. For that, I am grateful!

Supply List:
  1. Grateful Heart Cardmaking Stamp Set
  2. Watercolor Pencils
  3. Value Card Pack
  4. White Daisy cardstock
  5. Black cardstock
  6. Lemon cardstock
  7. Nectarine cardstock
  8. Gold-flecked Gems
