Autumn Splendor Scrap Pages

Published by at 8 49 am under Scrapbook Pages

This is a 2 page, 12 x 12 layout, I did for a class tomorrow with an autumn theme. The pages are overlapped just to make it easier to get a picture. I think the pages have a homey and warm feel, and the fauxcross stitches make me think of a Sampler when I look at these pages!

The leaves you see outside the pages are punched leaves that everyone will make, but they will not be placed/adhered until after the photos are added. They can adorn photo corners or fill in dead spaces. The leaves were punched, little vein lines drawn with a sparkly pen, then heavily sponged in the same color as the paper. Faux stitching was done with the use of the Mat Pack (one of my very favorite tools — use that little thing every single day!), and a white gel pen for the larger stitches and the fine tip of a brown marker for the smaller stitches. On these pages I used the stitches merely as a filler for dead space. The trio panel of leaves are stamped in Timber Brown Stazon and colored with pad ink and an aquapainter, backed with a strip of ribbonand then I added some brads. I think it looks likeit could be a wall hanging! The letters were stamped with a retired color Spectrum Pad, Late November. Spectrum pads are such fun to use!!! and you can’t beat having a large alphabet set on hand to customize any scrapbook page!!!

OH, there’s a fun Color Challenge at SCS today — all pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. And Emily provides a link to an ebay auction — now this will be fun to watch — all the design team for My Favorite Things have made and donated a card (18 in all) in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness and they are being auctioned off as a group. The bid was at $68 when I looked about an hour ago — it’ll be fun to watch and see what it goes for — here’s the link to the ebay auction.

    These are beautiful pages Sharon! I have tons of Marigold Morning paper left over. I’m thinking of making these pages but using pumpkins instead of leaves. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Wow! Gorgeous! Your group is sooooooo going to love this!! The colors you picked up from the Late November Spectrum Pad are a wonderful combination. I love that pad–so rich. The stitching, the layouts, the punched leaves in perfect Late November colors. This is truly Autumn Splendor!

    Wow, your pages really pop. Love the marigold and other fall colors and motif. Too bad your pages will be partially covered up by pics. TFS
