Fall Cutie - Scrapbook Page!

Good Morning!

I am SUPER EXCITED to share my project that I created for The Cutting Cafe with you today! This is my VERY FIRST scrapbook page that is actually for one of my own pictures. I have done a few page lay outs before but they have always been created for someone else. So ONE picture down... bazillion more to go! The funny thing is my daughter who is 3 in this picture is now 19...LOL! Running just a tad behind schedule on my scrapbooking!

Here is a look at the full 12 x 12 page

This week at The Cutting Cafe Regina gave us a choice of three different files we could use for our project. We could choose the Halloween Trio, Happy Halloween Shaped Card or the Fall Word Shaped Card. I had seen a scrapbook lay out that was done by Lynn Pratt a few years ago that was a fall themed page with leaves and had the woven background and I had always wanted to try one. So as soon as I saw the Fall Word Shaped card I knew that I had to try one of these pages!

Instead of using the Fall Word Shaped Card as an actual card I chose to use the individual letters and create my Scrapbook Page Header. That is the AWESOME thing about Regina's files... they are super versatile! The designer papers that I used are all from a Stampin Up! retired style that I believe is called Spice Cake. I LOVED this paper pack and think they should have kept it - LOL :) I first cut the letters out on the designer paper and then glued them to early espresso paper and then free cut a small border around them so they would pop a little more off the page.

Here is a close up of my Fall Letters:

I created my background weave using 3/4" strips of paper and I created some fall leaves for accents using a sizzix Leaves 2 die that is also from Stampin Up! I cut them in the same patterns in the designer paper pack, sponging the edges in early espresso and then running them through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to add texture before popping them up on my page.

Here are a couple close up pictures of the bottom half of my page. You can see some of the leaves a little bit closer...

Fall is not complete without some adorable little Scarecrows so I added a couple of super cute ones to each side of my page for a little added sweetness :) I colored them with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and paper pieced their outfits to match the rest of the page. Both of these little Scarecrow images are from Bildmalarna. We will be adding these two images to our store with our next Bildmalarna order so watch for them :)

Here are some close ups of my Scarecrow cuties...

I hope you liked my first scrapbook page! I had a lot of fun creating it! The color scheme for my project also fits this week's Loves Rubberstamps Challenge... use the colors Espresso, Aqua & Pumpkin... which are perfect for Fall projects! My large 12 x 12 base paper is from a Bazzill Bling paper pack. You can see the shimmer in it on some of my pictures.

Thanks for stopping by... be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe's Blog to see what the other design team members created using this week's assigned files... there are some AMAZINGLY AWESOME designs!

Happy Stampin All!
