Carta Bella: Fall Drive Layout

I thought I would finish up this week with a couple more Fall projects before heading into the holidays … This first one was created with the Carta Bella Autumn collection.


I used the ledger paper for my background. I’ve mentioned it in a past process video, but I LOVE that this paper says “Gordon’s Pumpkin Farm” across the top because my dad’s name is Gordon. 🙂


Aren’t the colors of the embellishments and patterns in this collection to die for?!! I had a lot of fun clustering them together at the bottom of the page.


I cut several of the cross-stitch leaves from the Fall Stitching Paper to use as accents around the layout.

For this Halloween page, I pulled out some pretty papers I had in my stash from the Oct. 2015 Felicity Jane “That One Day” kit. I feel like that floral paper was MADE for these photos. Swoon!



These photos of my daughter are from Halloween 2015. We found that blue dress at a second-hand store by a stroke of luck. We added a pinafore we bought online, a pair of white tights, black shoes, and a black headband and she was ready to go. “I’m Late! I’m Late! for a very important date!” Hehe!


Anytime I work with one of my Felicity Jane kits it’s mandatory that I fussy-cut the floral paper. 😀 😀 😀 I love the florals! And love to make them center stage on the pages I do with these kits.


I’m also in love with the hexagon dot paper. The blue is so pretty!


I added some stitching at the top of the page and through the letter stickers for a bit of texture.

Thank you for coming by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Noel Mignon: Fall

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday this weekend in the USA, I want to take this opportunity to tell all of you how THANKFUL I am for YOU! Thank you for reading my posts, your kinds comments, support, and for inspiring me to keep creating. I love the online scrapbook community! You are all just such lovely people! Thank you for being a part of my life. 😀

Over the next few days I’m working on posting the remainder of the Fall themed projects I have created this year (although, in reality, you might still see a few trickle in here-and-there over the next week) before tackling my holiday crafting.

Today I am up on the Noel Mignon blog with a two-page layout featuring the November All Fall Classic and All Fall Daily Diary kits. I also created a process video that is listed below, if you would like to see how this page came together.



Here is a closer look at some of the details of the left side of the layout.


I had so much fun fussy-cutting out the leaves from the Pretty Little Studio “Oakley Avenue” vellum paper. They looked so cute scattered at the feet of my forest friends.


I cut the title on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the cut file “Fall by Loni Stevens” (Design #15233) from the Silhouette Design Store. I embossed it using the Woodgrain 5×7 embossing folder by Darice.


And now for the right side of this page spread …


Of course I have to add a little bit of aqua to every page I do! I adore this flair badge from Pretty Little Studio!


And how cute is this little fox from the Echo Park Fall is in the Air collection. I cut him out of the 3×4 cut apart sheet included with the All Fall Daily Diary Kit.


Mr. Hedgie, by Simple Stories, makes his home in the top right corner of the page. I added more leaves, a script word sticker, heart stickers, and a couple of sparkly decorative brads.


Thanks so much for coming by! I hope you leave feeling inspired to create something fun!

Doodlebug Design Flea Market

When I first saw the Doodlebug Design Flea Market collection, I knew I had to have it! I LOVE the colors … and all of the cute critters and icons are just so sweet!

I picked up this collection at a locally owned craft store and put it to work documenting our trip to the pumpkin patch last year. Here is what I came up with!


First, I used one of the 4×6 cut apart cards as my title block, cutting out the tag shape from the card. Originally, in the lower left corner of the tag there is a stack of suitcases … since this wasn’t a travel page, I just covered those babies right up with the die cut trees.


I strung together the pennant shapes from the die cut pack along with some acorn and corn on the cob die cuts.


I added the matte enamel dots to some of the pennants for some tone-on-tone texture.

A doodle pop crow sits on top of the title … simply because he is CUTE! … Okay, and I also wanted to make sure I had a visual triangle of crows on the page. Hehe!


I loved creating a little field scene at the bottom of my page with the sunflower, leaf, crow, and tractor die cuts.


I added string around the crows’ necks to dress them up even more.


The border strips came in super handy for the bottom of this page. I used the Say Cheese border to add color between the hexagon and woodgrain papers … and then you can also see the edge of the green border strip poking out at the bottom to add a bit of faux stitching.


This next on is a two-pager …



For the background of this spread, I used the Merry Maples paper with the tone-on-tone leaf pattern.


Then I layered up several patterns for the middle section where all my photos were to go. Don’t you love that wood plank Barnwood paper capping off the top and bottom?! So cute!!!


My journaling gets spread across both pages in a step-down, stagger fashion, drawing your eye across the page. I accented the journaling on the left page with a cut apart sentiment, die cut clouds and the Fall Leaves Shapes Sprinkles.

The jar of sunflowers and little mouse accenting the photo or so cute here, too!


And of course you gotta add pumpkins when you are doing a page about the pumpkin patch! 🙂


At the top right corner of the page I created another cluster of die cuts, Fall Leaves Shape Sprinkles, and the “Hello” cut apart sentiment (from the Vintage Type paper).


I had fun layering together several die cuts for the title. I stacked “Fall” on top of “Blessings” and then added in the pumpkin and mice. I also tied the three wheat stalks together as another fun accent.


I’m so happy I picked up these papers! They were so much fun to play with!


Thanks for coming by! I hope you have a lovely week!

Noel Mignon: Pumpkin Patch Pocket Page

This week I combine the Noel Mignon All Fall Classic Kit and All Fall Daily Diary kit together on this 3-page pocket spread of my family’s visit to the pumpkin patch last year. I love how this one came together!



I love when Noel includes Simple Stories in her kits because they are definitely one of my favorite companies! I pulled out all of the Hello Fall elements and combined them together on these pages.


I just love the colors, patterns, typography, and icons in this set! The “Grateful” die cut made the perfect title!


I used more die cuts on the cards towards the bottom of the page. How cute is that little fox circle … and the leaves?! Ack! I also couldn’t get enough of the phrase stickers. I used a combination of the Pebbles phrase stickers from this month’s kit along with the Simple Stories phrase stickers that were included on the large 12×12 sticker sheet of last month’s Falloween Daily Diary kit.


More die cuts and goodies over on the other side of the spread!


I created a little cluster on the corner of each photo at the top of the page using the die cuts, phrase stickers, and those adorable patterned orange buttons from the All Fall Classic kit!


Some Simple Stories element stickers (Oct. Falloween Daily Diary kit) adorn two of the photos at the bottom of the page.

The journaling cards gets a little dimension with a wood button from last month’s kit and another one of those darling patterned Queen & Co. buttons from this month’s kit.


The Simple Stories fun continues on the third page of this spread.


Enamel dots are the perfect little dimensional accent for the 4×6 quote card.


I pulled in a bit of the Echo Park plaid washi tape (last month’s kit) to add some pattern to the bottom of a couple of the photos. A few die cuts and orange buttons clustered together round things out.


Finally, I had fun creating my own large journaling card for this one. I trimmed down a notebook patterned card I had in my stash and adhered it to the patterned side of one of the 4×6 journaling cards. Next, I decorated the top and bottom of the card with a few die cuts and Simple Stories stickers … and of course another button!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are having a creative week!
