PageMaps: September Sketches are Up!

This month for my PageMaps contribution I chose to work with the double-page sketch. I try to always use multiple photos on my single page layouts to make the most of the real estate in our scrapbook albums, but sometimes you just need MORE room to spread out and play!

Becky Fleck’s sketches are always so inspiring, well-designed, and FUN to use! Here is what I came up with this month!

I used some woodgrain patterned paper for the base of my layout (American Crafts Haunted Hollows “Haunted Forest” paper) along with the NEW Carta Bella Paper Fall Break collection. I also brought in some dimensional sunflower stickers (Recollections) that I had in my stash accented with die cut branches using the GORGEOUS Chestnut Brown Linen Cardstock by Carta Bella Paper (my FAVORITE!).

I used a tag punch to to create a base for the “I Love Autumn” chipboard piece. The branches were created using the Harvest Branches die set.

I cut the sunflower seed packet image from the Journaling Cards Paper and the ledger card from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper to anchor the chipboard truck and sunflower cluster in the bottom left corner of the layout. A few enamel dots and decorative brads accent the flowers and add depth to this part of the page.

I tied some rust colored twill ribbon around the two stacked photos on the right page. At the bottom I placed a word sticker on foam squares to mimic the chipboard in other parts of the layout and then capped off the top and bottom of the photo block with zig zag punched border strips. (The cute floral paper I used here is called Scarecrow Stripe paper.)

I used one of the Chipboard Phrases as a page title and anchored it with the wreath sticker from the Sticker Sheet and a pennant cut from the Journaling Cards paper. I use the WRMK Banner Punch Board to get a perfectly notched piece. More dimensional flower stickers, enamel dots and die cut branches round things out!

This last little cluster on the right page features a cute tag from the Fall Break Ephemera Pack accented by the adorable blue pumpkin image from this collection.

Carta Bella Paper: Beautiful, Beautiful Fall!

Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog sharing a new layout created with the gorgeous Carta Bella Paper Fall Break collection.
Jana Eubank Carta Bella Fall Break Beautiful Fall Layout 1 600
I love when a fall collection includes the color blue (although, my pictures here make it look a little more mint green?). So many of our Fall photos include the warm colors of gold, orange, and red. Using blue can offset all the warmth and really help your photos pop and look their best!
Jana Eubank Carta Bella Fall Break Beautiful Fall Layout 2 600
I included two 4″x3″ photos on this page in a grid pattern of six blocks. In between the photos in the left column I added this adorable map die cut (Ephemera) of the fall colors in the United States. A trio of blue enamel dots gives the die cut a bit of dimension.

The remaining blocks in the right column were all cut from papers of the 6×6 paper pad. I added my journaling to the top block, and then used the center block for my title. The bottom block is a more colorful pattern, so I left it plain, without any embellishing, to let the viewer take in all of the cute fall images.
I used die cuts from the Ephemera pack (the “Beautiful” word piece and the “F-A-L-L” banner pieces) together to create the title. Next, I accented the title block with the blue and white pumpkin images from this collection. I love these non-traditional pumpkin colors! They are so on trend and have a serene feeling about them … just like a beautiful, crisp fall day!

Underneath the right edge of the grid block I added several die cut leaves using Natural White Felt Designer Cardstock and the Harvest Branches Die Set. If I had die cut them from colored cardstock, they would have competed with the patterns I had going on in the rest of the design. The tone-on-tone texture of the die cuts is a fun way to add more interest (and more fall flair) to the overall layout.

Echo Park Paper: Autumn Gift Basket

Fall paper collections always put me in the mood for homebaked treats and connecting with neighbors. Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog with an apple barrel basket, created with the new Celebrate Autumn collection, that would be perfect for taking to a dear friend. Inside I have tucked a couple of dishtowels, a set of ceramic measuring spoons, a paper acorn box filled with treats, and a jar of honey.

I cut the “Thankful & Blessed” oval on the front of the basket from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper and placed it on top of a band of Autumn Acorns paper. Next, I used the Falling Leaves paper and Chestnut Brown Linen Designer Cardstock to create the paper sunflowers adorning either side. (Find this adorable sunflower cut file HERE at MyScrapChick.com)
I painted the brown cardstock flower centers with THIS gold glitter water brush pen by Art-C to make them shimmer and sparkle. (I couldn’t quite capture these on camera … I sooo wish you could see them in person! They are AWESOME!)

The orange flowers were created from orange paper from the 6×6 paper pad. I used the Decorative Brads for the centers, and then added them around the sunflowers along with a few floral stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet. This friendly chipboard squirrel holding the acorn hints to the paper acorn box placed inside the basket.

The basket itself was cut using Kraft Designer Cardstock using the basket file from the Fall Harvest SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. I used the Wood Grain Embossing Folder to give it lots of delicious, woodsy texture!

A peek inside the basket beckons the recipient to investigate!

Inside they will find the cutest acorn-shaped box filled with chocolates! (If you’d like to make your own acorn shaped box you can find the file HERE. It is from the Acorn Autumn SVG Set by SVGCuts.com)

I created another sunflower for the top of this box to coordinate with the basket, and then tied a tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack to the acorn’s stem. The acorn lid is created from more Chestnut Brown Linen cardstock embossed with the Autumn Florals Embossing Folder.

Harvest Happiness for Your Home

Do you enjoy adding homemade touches to your seasonal or home decor? Greet your guests as they arrive to your home for Thanksgiving dinner this year with a beautiful Fall wreath hanging on your front door. Or try hanging it across a mirror or mantle.

You will need a package of Fall Leaf Die Cut Shapes (34115) by American Crafts, an old dictionary, a wreath form, and your hot glue gun. Let’s get creating!

I purchased an old dictionary at my local donation center for just a few dollars. I used a pair of scissors to cut several simple leaf shapes out of the book pages.

Next, I used a glue gun to add the leaves to a grapevine wreath form. First, I lightly rolled/folded the Fall Leaf Die Cut Shapes into a cone and adhered them to the wreath form, making sure I distributed the colors evenly. Then, I filled in the spaces in between the colorful leaves with the neutral bookpaper leaves.

I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut several branch shapes from 12×12 Chocolate Textured Cardstock (71047) and adhered them here-and-there around the wreath to add a bit of variety.

The final step was to top my creation off with a burlap ribbon bow. I love the way it turned out! I will be hanging this in my hallway across the front of a mirror for a bit of fall flair!
