Hi Crafty Friends!!! As today is the last day of the month of October; I decided to document the month on a scrapbook layout instead of using my Memory Planner. This layout was so fun to create! I pulled together pattern paper and ephemera from these 3 awesome kits in the Clique Store; Sampler Kit | Heidi Swapp's Sunchaser (cliquekits.com), Seasonal Kit | Cape May (cliquekits.com) and Add-on Kit | It's Easy being Green (cliquekits.com). I typically only use 1-2 photos per layout; but love capturing all that I did during the month of October in one layout.
I fussy cut each of the leaves for this layout to represent "Fall". I matted each photo alternating between white cardstock as well as pattern paper. American Craft "Thickers" are my go-to for titles.
This journalling prompt is from the Heidi Swapp "Sunchaser" Collection. I decided to distress the edges of the prompt & each pattern paper strip using the Heidi Swapp distresser tool from stash.
I used my HP sprocket to print out each 2x3 photo. Add ephemera from multiple brands.
Be sure to head over to Clique International (cliquekits.com). There are tons of new items available as well as the kits I used for this layout.
Happy Fall Ya'll!
It's Alexandra here today with my first blog post for Clique International design team. I am excited to be here with everyone and wanted to let you know that my friends and family call me Ali. Feel free to follow me on Instagram at @funadventureswithali . I hope you enjoy this Fall layout I created of my husband and me apple picking.
I created this page using the Seasonal Series|Fall Stories|Simple Stories kit and had so much fun backing the leaves cut file from Cut To You with all the different papers from Simple Stories. I was dying to use those beautiful pink sequins that were included in this kit, since they matched the color of my shirt perfectly. I decided to make a few of the leaves shakers and took packaging from the sticker package and backed a couple of leaves with the cellophane and the pink polka dot paper, with the pink sequins inside. To add dimension to the layout I added foam tape behind the cut file.
I lightly painted the white cardstock using a pink ink pad and water on another cellophane sticker packaging sheet and kissed the cardstock lightly with the wrapper to add some color to the background. I added some stickers and brads, which are self adhesive now and so easy to use.
I was inspired by the Song Falling in Love because Fall is our favorite season and we do some of our favorite activities during this season, including apple picking.
I hope you fall in love with this layout as much as I have and
can't wait to share more projects with my new peeps!
Take Care, Ali
