Fall Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Creative Life Scrapbooking's Fall Blog Hop! I'm following Karyn McDermaid-Rolfe from Karyn Crops today and Noreen Smith from Organized & Creative Mom will be your last stop. If you missed any of the stops, you'll find a list of each of the stops at the end of today's post. Be sure to visit all of the stops on the list for some great ideas from the scrapbookers and crafters at Creative Life Scrapbookers. You might also want to follow our Facebook page at Creative Life Scrapbooking for even more inspiration and ideas for your scrapbook layouts! Today I'm going to share a fall inspired layout using CM's Harvest Delight Collection. 

Fall is my favorite time of the year and when my family decided to take a trip to a local apple orchard, I jumped at the chance to take pictures of our adventure. I think I came home with about 200 to 300 pictures. I've been challenging myself to edit down to no more than 50 pictures of one event (scrapbooking 200 pictures would take an entire 45 page album least!) but I found it very difficult to choose only 50 of the pictures I took. I ended up with about 70 printed photos and I can't wait to get them into a scrapbook album. CM's Harvest Delight Collection is the perfect enhancement to my apple orchard photos. You'll find specific directions for today's project below as well as a sketch and a sketch guide with general directions for creating your own version of my layout. 

Here's what you'll need to complete this layout:
Creative Memories Harvest Delight Paper, Stickers and Variety Mat Pack
Songbirds Border Punch
Flag Punch
Tearing Tool
12-Inch Trimmer and straight blade

To create, follow the general instructions found with the Sketch Guide below. To save the Sketch Guide for your personal use, simply right click on the guide and choose "Save as."

For my layout, I punched the Songbirds Border and two flags from mats from the Harvest Delight Variety Mat Pack. My journal box, title box and the torn paper rectangle under the Songbirds border were also cut from mats from the variety mat pack.  The flag under the title is a sticker. The leaves underneath my half flowers were cut from one sticker. Use foam squares under a few of your enhancements to create dimension, journal your story and your done.

There you go! I'd love to see what you've done with your own photos. Just visit my Facebook page at to leave a photo of your layout.
