So happy to share my first fall layout of the season with you here today. Autumn is my favorite season of the year, I love everything about it. It begins with the sight of the changing leaves, the crisp cooler air, grabbing that favorite sweater and heading to the pumpkin patch. Ahhh it is such a nice change, so naturally some of those favorites make it onto my layout.

I started out with a bright cheerful base paper, Soup Staple in Yellow Salt. Then I laid out four wallet size photos across the top. Under the row of photos I added three border strips, one in floral, one in diagonal stripes and a polka dot. Next using brown ink I stamped across the yellow diagonal “love today” repeated across the page. Those stamps are from the Cold Avocado Soup/XOXO small set. The orange chevron is actually a paper straw flattened and trimmed down and added with glue dots. Then I began assembling the postcard piece in the center, starting with layering the Chopped Green Onions paper under the postcard cutout from the Cold Avocado Bite Size Bits page. Then using the Cold Avocado/Better Together stamp in brown ink the “hello” and the heart square onto a scrap of Fresh Orange Juice. The leaves were cut from three coordinating papers using my Cuttlebug and embossed as well, then added to the page with 3D foam dots. Then you can add the stickers to embellish the leaf as shown and using Alphabean stickers create your title. Just to add interest I mixed Uppercase and lowercase letters as shown. Then I added a stampables wood banner piece for the sub title using letter stickers to finish the title.
So there it is, a fun fall layout to capture some of your seasonal adventures.

Hi, it’s Gini – thought I would inspire you with a Halloween layout. So remember to get your cameras ready to capture some great shots this year.

I used the Graphic 45 Happy Hauntings paper and stamps to create this layout and added handmade flowers and fall ribbons to finish everything up. I used the elements of the Happy Hauntings stamp set to create my vintage postcard, and then cut out a picture of my sweet nephew to add to it.
