Each month with my Scrapbook Club I plan a two page layout that focuses on a specific Designer Series Paper, Stamp set, and Tool. For November I used the Orchard Harvest DSP, Wonderfall Stamp Set and matching Autumn Accents Die, Core'dinations card stock and the Colour Spritzer Tool. Oh and we even did a little Heat Embossing. There was a lot packed into this CAS layout:)
I try to make sure each month that I come up with layouts that are simple enough to easily recreate but try to include lots of fun elements. I also try to keep the theme relatively generic so that it works for everyone, no matter what stage of their life they may be in. Most of the products used on this page can be found in the awesome HOLIDAY CATALOGUE.
We used VersaMark and Early Espresso Embossing Power to make the sentiment (from Pursuit of Happiness set) really pop from the Naturals Ivory Card stock. The leaves were die cut then stamped also using VersaMark to create a tone on tone effect.
For two of the photos I wanted to create a faux polariod. I achieved this by making the Very Vanilla mat a little longer vertically, then stamped some words from the very versatile Fabulous Phrases set. The center photo was just matted with Very Vanilla then placed on top of a piece of Early Espresso Core'dinations Card stock that was embossed with the Woodgrain Impressions Folder, then sanded.
I then create a little banner using scrap of DSP and the Petite Pennant Punch (which is on SALE right now for 30% off! To view the full list of SALE items click HERE) some Linen Thread and two adorable button brads from the Vintage Trinkets.
Have a great day,
