Scrapbook Page: Pulling a Title from Your Journaling

The photos on today’s page were ones that my daughter took on a date for the Halloween dance a couple of years ago. Of course I wasn’t on the date with her, so I had her write the journaling.

I could have gone with the typical “Carving Pumpkins” title for this page, but decided to pull out a unique phrase from my daughter’s journaling instead. The silly phrase, “Toothpick-Toothed Beast” is catchy because it is different … but will also mean more to my daughter because it is something specific pulled from her date.

TOOTHPICK-TOOTHED BEAST

Today’s page features one of my FAVORITE Fall collections this year … the Hello Fall collection by Carta Bella Paper.

I have amassed a HUGE collection of letter stickers. They are one of those things I almost never purge … because, let’s face it … fonts are pretty basic.

However, I have noticed that I typically create my titles on my Silhouette Cameo machine. Simply for the fact that it is EASIER. I can choose a phrase and then size it to fit EXACTLY in the space I have on my page. I LOVE that!

But … because of that … my poor alphabet collection has been neglected. I made a goal to dig into those alphas a bit more throughout the rest of the year … and although the process of putting together the title takes longer … I still really enjoy the look of a mixed alphabet title! AND, it feels good to use what I have!

NOTE: I just have to point out something … how stinkin’ CUTE is that little hedgehog from this collection! ❤ ❤ ❤

I love using journaling strips when there is a lot to say on a page. I can cut them to whatever width I need and get a lot of information in a small space.

I had fun clustering the elements of the Hello Fall collection together in groups around the page. I made sure to add something “shiny” … whether it was an enamel dot, enamel shape, or decorative brad to each group to tie them all together. Varying which embellishment I used in the clusters keeps things interesting to look at.

Layering all kinds of bits together is one of my very favorite things to do!

This page has a light and bright feel about it, but still feels grounded with the brown cardstock strips outlining the different patterned paper sections.

I used the Ticket Tear Border punch by Stampin’ Up to jazz up a couple of those edges and keep things from feeling too boxy.

Carta Bella Paper: Hello Fall Cards

There is something about fall that makes me want to take time to connect with friends and family. Why not send your loved ones a fun fall-themed card in the mail?
Today I have a couple of cards that would be perfect created with the Carta Bella Paper Hello Fall collection.
I couldn’t resist creating a card centered around my favorite tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack … Yep! The one that says, “I’m Just Here for the Pie.” Haha!

I used the Chestnut Brown Linen Cardstock for my card base and then built up a background of the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper (multi-colored chevron) and Pumpkin Spice Paper. Aren’t those squirrels adorable?!

This next card features the adorable truck from the Hello Fall collection. Just looking at that cute truck makes me want to go on a hay ride through a pumpkin field!

PUMPKIN SEASON

I created a multi-pattern background to use with these photos of my daughter dressed as a scarecrow last year. It reminds me a bit of a patchwork quilt or the patches sewn on the clothes of an actual scarecrow!

I backed the photo with the orange leaf pattern of the Pumpkin Spice Paper and then added an embellishment cluster to the top left corner of the photo. I love that little banner from the Enamel Shapes!

Below the photos I clustered together all kinds of goodies. I trimmed out the pumpkin from the 4×4 Journaling Cards Paper to use as my title, cradling it with the fabric swag sticker from the Sticker Sheet. I then surrounded the title with all kinds of cute icons from the Sticker SheetChipboard StickersLayered Stickers, and even a few enamel leaves from the Enamel Shapes.

Carta Bella Paper: Baby Sleeping Door Hanger

Hello, Friends! I remember being a young mother and the struggle it was to get a baby or toddler to sleep. The last thing I wanted was a package delivery person to ring the doorbell and undo all of my hard work. Haha! Today’s project will solve that problem for you! It is a Baby Sleeping Door Hanger! Simply hang it on your doorknob when your child is sleeping and visitors will know to knock, instead of pressing the doorbell.

BABY SLEEPING DOOR HANGER

I cut the door hanger shape out using my Silhouette Cameo machine and then decorated it with the ADORABLE Carta Bella Paper Rock-A-Bye Boy collection. (To see a short video of this doorhanger coming together, check out the Echo Park Instagram account HERE.)

I cut out the cow from the 4×6 Journaling Card paper and then used the opposite Ledger patterned side for the background.

The moon was cut from the Fall is in the Air 6×6 paper pad using the Little Star Die Set. I added the Enamel Dots to the stars for a bit of fun! The “Dream Big Little One” banner and “B-A-B-Y” letters are both from the Element Sticker sheet. Everything is anchored on a die cut label (Stitched Label Nesting Die) cut form the Ultra White Felt Cardstock.

For the sentiment, I used the letter stickers from the Happiness is Homemade collection along with die cut letters (Navy Blue Felt Cardstock) using the Lincoln Uppercase Die Set.
