Fall Market Layout  


Hello and Happy November! I'm a bona fide fall/winter kinda girl! I love the colors of fall and winter. Peppermint mochas, warm blankets... and the scrapbook supplies are the very BEST in fall and winter (you know I'm right!) This year, my hands down favorite fall line is Carta Bella Fall Market! I just can't get enough of it! It's soooo perfect! 



I created a layout to share with you today using that range. I started with a cut file from my stash and jazzed it up with Distress Oxide ink pads and some Nuvo drops to give the sunflower a realistic look and texture. I wanted to keep the rest of the page design simple so I utilized a dark part of my photo I wasn't too fond of to add a couple die cut elements as my title.

Honey & Spice Layout  


Hi friends! Natalie here, using the new Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice collection.



This collection is so great for any time, but I created a fall themed page by die cutting the awesome papers into leaves! The dies were mostly Tim Holtz and some Momenta leaves. I inked up the edges of the leaves with aged mahogony distress oxide so they would stand out from the page.



My main photo focus was set atop the leaf clusters, around which I settled my title. These wild ladies went out on the town to make candles, so "this day was LIT!" was clearly a great choice for a title. I love to mix & match my Thickers to emphasize a certain point - here being a pun!



These cardstock stickers were perfect for my page! The sentiments were versatile, and I love how the backside of the sheet has labels. I used a couple for the page journaling.


We laughed a ton this day, so I knew I wanted to use the word "laugh" from the cardstock stickers, but I didn't have a great place to put it ... until I turned it vertically! It nestled right between some photos & gave a fun interest to that part of the page. Don't be afraid to use your embellishments in fun, different-than-usual ways to create additional interest on a page!



I love to add sparkle to all my pages. I included glitter leaves in my clusters behind the main photos. To balance the shine and shimmer, I grouped a trio of the rose gold foil cardstock stickers on the bottom half of the layout.


I hope you're inspired to pick up some Honey & Spice today and craft away! I can't decide on a favorite - the background paper, Cider House or the cheetah print, KindredWhich do you love most?!


You can catch a process video on my YouTube channel too!

Happy Haunting Layout  



I just can't get enough of Halloween projects! The Happy Haunting collection is perfect to document all your October moments with a little spooky and a little sweet! The touches of pink in this collection are perfect! For this layout I picked a background cut file that I could add a lot of pattern paper to. This pumpkin cut file was perfect for that! I backed all the pumpkins with papers from the Simple Stories Happy Haunting collection.




The photo is of my husband and daughter last year at our Halloween party! We decked out the house in all the spooky things and had some friends over. The kids had so much fun and so did the adults. I backed the photo with some scraps of papers from the collection adding a lot of layers and popped it up on the layout.



I tucked in bits and pieces of ephemera and labels from the Happy Haunting collection. I love that they now offer two ephemera packs one bits and pieces and one filled with tags & frames! The tags & frames pack has a lot of pieces that are great to run through my We R Memory Keepers typewriter.





All the die cuts are popped around the photo with foam adhesive. I love the haunted houses on each side of the photo. I also added an epoxy flair from Scrappin Happy Studio to one of the floral die cut centers. Here is a look at my completed layout using the Simple Stories Happy Haunting collection.



Thanks so much for stopping by today! You can check out the Happy Haunting collection in the A Cherry on Top shop!
