First up in our parade, Trista created a fun fall layout using Hello Fall Papers and Elements by Sabrina Dupre. Trista says, “Create a focal point by clustering embellishments and adding layers around a photo.” What Does the ? Say by Jacque Larsen inspired this adorable layout by Karen. The fox from the kit is such a perfect addition to this cute Halloween page and story. Sarah created some colorful notebooks using Nancie Rowe Janitz’s I am Grateful Wall Art. Sarah created two notebook covers by resizing the artwork to fit on a sheet of letter sized cardstock. Once printed the covers were cut down to sizes to fit in Midori style notebooks and filled with 24 lb. printer paper. Tronesia created this super sweet layout with Reflection Journal Cards by Sahlin Studio. Tronesia scattered the journal cards along with photos and other elements to create a fun haphazard look. These Gather Pocket Squares by Amber LaBau were used by Aaron to create a pocket scrapping page. Aaron says: Just because cards are square doesn’t mean you can’t use them in other sized photo spots. For example, I used the 4×4 Blessed card in a 3×4 spot on this layout, cropping it to fit. Jewelle made some super cute place cards using Jacque Larsen’s A Day of Thanks. Jewelle says: Making place cards for the Thanksgiving table is a breeze when using Jacque’s A Day of Thanks. Place the fun faces on a project life card that has been folded in half, add a bit of glitter, and you’re finished! Karen created a layout with the Grateful collaboration. Karen created fun layers behind each of her photos helping them to stand out individually on the page. Etc. by Danyale’s Abundant kit was used for these planner pages created by Sarah. Sarah says: If you have days that there isn’t much going on adding large embellishments helps to fill up the empty space. Sarah created a fun autumnal layout using Right Here, Right Now by Pink Reptile Designs Allowing your photo to peek out under your frame creates a fun look on a layout. Renne of Forever Joy Designs has created a Gather Together Hybrid Mini Book . Renne created this video to show the process that she used to put together her mini book. Susanne created a fun layout using One Little Bird’s The Love List. Susanne says: This picture is so full of love, I thought it would be great to repeat this idea with the big word art. Also the little key and the “key to my heart” word art tag express this idea so perfectly. Kim created a mini album using Just Jaimee’s November Storyteller 2014. Kim made a mini hybrid album, using the journal life pockets cards and papers/elements from November Storyteller and a chipboard album cut from her Silhouette Cameo. Here are a couple of the amazing spreads from Kim’s album.Tronesia created a pocket scrapping page with Press Cards No. 30 by Paislee Press. Tronesia resized and cropped the 3″x4″ journal cards to create smaller square cards for her page. Farrah used Sara Gleason’s Family Almanac Words to create a family tree layout. The family word art provides a fun way to label the photos on a family tree. Sarah created some Christmas Tree Ornaments with Nacie Rowe Janitz’s Decorative Christmas Blocks Workshop. It’s hard to believe it’s time to begin thinking about Christmas. For these ornaments Sarah resized the blocks to 2.25″ squares and decoupaged the printed squares to 2.5″ square pieces of painted wood. A simple eye bolt and some twine provided the finishing touches.
