Fall Layout

I'm always looking for inspiration for scrapbook layouts. I literally have hundreds of pages printed off of layouts and sketches. (now if I only had the time to use them all ;) ) This particular page got it's inspiration from Andrea Walford's card. I knew immediately it would make a great page for my scrapbook.
Here I've used our Autumn Vine 12x12 patterned paper along with Chocolate chip cardstock. I used Big Deal Alphabet for the title and for the lg orange shape I used Accent Elements Cricut cartridge.
These pictures are from a year ago, so you can imagine how far behind I am. I hope to get more scrap booking done this fall & winter so I can catch up!

Have a great day!

Inspired by Nature

Here's a super simple card, not a lot going on, but still cute I think. For the flowers I used Poppin Pastels <---you can click here to see the tutorial. Makes for a nice almost watercolored effect for these flowers. The card stock is Chipboard ran through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die. Other card stock is: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Pink Pirouette. Also used Kiwi satin ribbon. Thanks for stopping by!
