I coloured the sweet little scarecrow digi images from Bugaboo Stamps and added some glittery Stickles before popping them up with foam dots on this pretty Echo Park paper – A Perfect Autumn. It’s one of my fav fall collections this year!

I love the way this little guy is peeking out of the circle! The Thanksgiving sentiment from a Pretty Cute stamps set was perfect for the banner tag.

On the back of the boxes I added a little name tag diecut from a Stitched Tag Die from Your Next Stamp and stamped with a pretty scroll stamp from the Pink & Main Thankful set.

Oh My Gourd!

Hey y’all, Ali here! Okay…did October sneak up on anyone else? Wow! Here it is! Everyone’s favorite time of the year. I have a layout today all about one of my favorite fall things…gourds! This month all of the Sparklers are documenting about leaves and fall and all of our favorites! Hope you will keep coming by to check it out!

We always go to a nearby farm for the fall events. One of my favorites is the archways with hanging gourds (this is a fave and a fear, I am always terrified one may just drop on my head at any moment! HA!). I love fall colors, and I also love how some lines are using non traditional colors, like teals to document fall. That is where I based this layout. I used Echo Park’s collection, Fall is in the Air, because it has some fun blues! So I also really wanted a good excuse to use the Aquarius sequins, which have become a fast favorite! I love the blues and the pops of orange from those tiny little flowers! I also added in some Just Beachin’ It sequins, because those browns and greens were perfection for this photo!

As much as I love this season, it is really busy -with school starting and activities! It can be hectic. For me, scrapping is therapy. Whether I get to sit and glue for hours, or just ten minutes, I need that time. I loved creating this layout, because it was quick and fun! A couple of watercolor splatters and some layering behind my photo. I think the sequins pull it all together, like scattered leaves across the layout! What are some of your favorite ways to document fall?

Don’t forget the sequins!

Make it Yours Monday~Love Fall

Hello my crafty friends and welcome back to another Make it yours Monday! This week, we are being inspired by our fabulous guest designer for the month, Jenn Gagne! As soon as I saw this layout of hers, I knew it was my inspiration piece! I love the circle element as well as the little corner accents to add some interest to the page!!! .

To begin, I took a piece of vanilla cardstock and misted it with Shimmerz Sunset Strip Vibes, Tattered Angels Pumpkin Spice and Chili mists and then took my art rag and rubbed them together to create the slightly ombre/blended background.

No automatic alt text available.

I placed my photo next, so it could help aid the placement of all the other elements later on. I added a torn piece of navy blue and gold glitter cardstocks as my photo mat. They complimented the colors in the photo so well!!  I also did my title next, so I could place it exactly where I wanted it, and could work around it with the embellishments later on.

My favorite part was creating the leaves, using one of the new, FREE cut files available in the shop, Lovely Leaves. I used my Brother Scan N Cut and several pieces of fall colored cardstocks to cut out multiples of each leaf design, and then used my versamarker and embossing powders to add details to the large ones and my favorite glue in my fineline bottle and glitter for the smaller leaf details. No automatic alt text available.

I situated the leaves around the page to mimick the circle element of Jenn’s layout, and added some of the newest sequin mixes in the shop, Aquarius and Peachy Keeny, to add even more dimension and texture as well as great pops of color!!

No automatic alt text available.

I added a few of the smaller leaves around my photo and my journaling to the left of the title, just under the photo.

To finish my page, I added some splatters to the leaf ring around the page, using the same colors I used for the background, as well as some Navy color shine. I mounted the entire layout on a piece of soft orange cardstock and added a doodle-y boarder around the edge to add some definition.No automatic alt text available.

A few strips of nave and gold cardstocks to the top left and bottom right corner & the date finished off my fall wreath layout.

I got really excited when I saw the finished page!! It’s probably one of my most favorite layouts in a LONG time!! I hope you enjoyed my process and layout today and will stop by the shop for some of these amazing products!!!! When you do, 

Make It Yours Monday: A Sketch with Crafty Meggy

make it yours monday

Hello SMS fans!! I hope you’re all having a great Monday so far! Today, I thought it would be fun to use the sketch that Laura made for this months challenge over in the facebook group. To stick with the theme of ‘Make It Yours’ I decided to tweak the sketch a little bit to make it more me.

This is the sketch that Laura made:

oct-sms-15challenge

I really love how simple it is and I wanted to stick with the simplicity, but add a few big layers to the layout as well.

So here’s my take on the sketch. I really love the end result!

Before I started this layout I knew I wanted to use some of the new fall sequin mixes. They’re just so yummy! I settled on using 2 different mixes for this layout, Autumn Joy and A Day in the Woods.

The sketch called for stitching or some sort of decoration in the top right corner and bottom left corner so I decided to use sequins to bring in this part of the sketch. At first I wasn’t quite sure how much I’d really like it, but in the end I think it turned out pretty good. I also decided to put my date in the top right corner with sequins to seperate the month, day, year.

I didn’t want to do too much journaling on the page itself because I will have a companion page that I make about their relationship as best friends so I kept the journaling simple and to the point in the bottom left hand corner with the sequins.

Here’s a better view of the whole photo cluster. I had fun with this sketch and using bigger layers to make it my own. I love using doilies in my scrapbooking and the large glassine bag fit in as another big layer as well. You can find these two products in the store as well.

I hope that you will come on over to the facebook group and share with us a layout you make using this months sketch! You’ll be entered into a drawing to win a fun prize at the end of the month!
