STAMPlorations 6th Giving Thanks Bloghop and giveaway

To make my Gratitude Tag Album I started by die cutting tags out of my stash of unused monoprints. 

I use CUTploration  Manila Tags Nesting Dies

The cover for my album was made with 

I used it to cut one of my mono prints and then I backed it with white to make the cut print stand out. 

There are a lot of resources that you can use to make a list to be grateful for. I saw one at 

They have a free download
.However, I choose to just write the list on the back of my pumpkin tag. 

I am using this opportunity to work on my lettering as well as journaling and working on being grateful. So I am keeping it simple. The word for the day lettered on the front of the tag, letting the monoprint be the star. I am then handwriting the scripture on the back of the tag. 

Since I used prints from my stash, I didn't always remember which ARTploration Stencils were used on every tag. I took a photo of the ones that I knew which stencil was used.
