An Attitude of Gratitude with We R Memory Keepers & GlueArts

"November comes 
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring."

-  Elizabeth Coatsworth

Designer Grace Tolman has made a blessing journal for her We R Memory Keepers project! It's filled with wonderful bits of goodness...perfectly fitting for this month!!! Designer Jan Hennings has a sweet gift set ready for filling with treats for someone special!

Attitude of Gratitude Journal
GlueArts Designer: Grace Tolman

There’s no better month to look back and count our blessings than November. Once in a while, I enumerate my blessings in my journal and I transferred the list into a mini book complete with great Autumn Harvest collection from We R Memory Keepers and put together using Glue Arts Adhesive. Read on to see how I made this mini…

1. Cut two pieces of cardboard. This will be your front and back cover of the book. Mine is measured 4 ½” x 6 ½”.
2. Cover these pieces with pattern paper. Cut the papers ¾” bigger than your cardboard so it’ll overlap to the inside of the cardboard.
 3. Cut a piece of paper that is ¼” smaller than the cardboard and adhere to the center of the back side of the boards. I used some extreme square adhesives to adhere it to make sure the paper won’t come off. 

4. Cut about 7 different pattern papers. Two of each design in 4 x 6” size.
5. Adhere these papers back sides together. These will make for your inside pages. 
6. Round the two right corners of each sheets. 
7. Cut a piece of yellow cardstock that is about 3” wide, add a punched border on each long end, trim to the same width of your front cover. 
8. Add some machine stitching on each long ends. 
 9. Transfer your diary/journal writings to cardstock. 
10. Trim each blessings into strips. 
11. Adhere these strips to the inside pages of your book. For the thick ones, I used my Perma tac and for the skinny ones, I used the mini square adhesives. 
12. I added my last sentence on the last page of the book and adhered it with foam adhesive. 
13. Then I embellished each page with flat items like punched border strips. 
14. Next, I binded my book. 
15. Then I decorated the front using the sticker that inspired me to make the book. I also cut out some flowers from paper, added a brad in the center and then adhered it to the book. 
I used a foam adhesive on one and a Raisen’s on another. 
16. I went back to each page and added my dimensional embellishments. 
17. Last, I added some ribbons through my binding rings.
