Today I am up on the Simple Stories Blog sharing a scrapbook page using my favorite Forever Fall Collection.
I love the name of this collection, because if there is one season I would want to last forever, it would definitely be Fall! I love everything about it, the rich colors, the coziness, everything! I wanted to embody that feeling on this next page about my daughter.
First of all, the Be Grateful paper with it’s denim pattern … SWOON! I could use this paper for every layout this season! I cut out the heart from the 4×4 Elements paper and paired it with the chipboard fox to use as a large accent next to my die cut title.
Next, I wanted to do something special around this cute photo of my daughter. I used an electronic die cutting machine to cut out several large leaves and then backed them with the Gather Together, Changing Leaves, and Pumpkin Everything papers.
I then used my sewing machine to stitch around the outer edges and veins of the leaves, giving them lots of cozy texture!
Finally, I fussy-cut the large floral element from the 4×6 Horizontal Elements paper and gathered several other floral die cuts and stickers to tuck in among the leaves. The result is a fun way to show off a favorite photo!
Try using a mixture of oversized fall leaves and florals on your next fall layout. It’s a lot of fun to do!
