Step by Step process tutorial by Monique- My Creative Scrapbook

Hello My Creative Scrapbook fans! It's Monique here today sharing how I created my layout "Pumpkin Spice and all things nice". I used the October Creative Kit featuring the "Welcome Autumn" collection from Carta Bella, which I totally adore! Maybe it's because Fall is my favorite season, but I find the colors in this kit amazing!

Here's the layout I created:

I started with unpacking the kit.

and cutting one of the free subscriber cut files from a sheet tangerine colored cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo:

Next I decided on a background paper (Pumpkin Patch Picks) for the white cardstock and I chose and matted two photos:

Using the inside pieces from the cut file I cut around the letters using various patterned papers from the kit:

Using a glue pen with a fine tip I adhered the patterned papers behind the letters of the cut file:

Which then looked like this:

I decided to use a different patterned paper for each of the words and for the pumpkin as well:

I really love the result! The Fall colors and patterns in this kit are just so awesome!

The rest of the page came together so easily. I adhered the with background cardstock (11.5" x 11.5") on top of the (12" x 12") orange chequered paper. The cut file was adhered on top of the white cardstock with the two matted photos above it. Placing some die-cuts and stickers around the photos and a bit of journaling at the bottom, my page was almost finished. What was missing was the machine stitching and the few drops of paint of course! After adding that as well, my page was done! 

Here are a few close-up photos:

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope I've been able to inspire you to use the October Creative Kit!

Love Fall - Build a Forest cut file My Creative Scrapbook

Hi everyone, Claire here and I am delighted to be Guest Designing for My Creative Scrapbook during October. Today, I have the pleasure of sharing my layout with you, created with this month’s kit. I was inspired by the beautiful colour palette and loved the ‘Build A Forest’ cut file, which inspired me to create an autumnal page.

I started with a piece of heavyweight white cardstock and coated it with gesso to help prime the base for mixed media.  I selected two colors of Distress Oxide from my stash in Seedless Preserve and Wild Honey, and added it to my page using the packaging technique.

Once the ink was dry, I used the clear alphabet stamps to create the words ‘Love’ and ‘Fall’. I stamped ‘Love’ in purple on the purple ink and ‘Fall’ in orange on the orange ink.

I set the background to one side and selected my leaves, cutting them on the Circuit.  I chose just 3 of the leaves available in the file.  I resized one leaf to be 8” tall, making it the anchor for my page, cutting it in the brown and pink polka dot ‘Grateful’ paper.  I stitched through the leaf where I though the veins would be and curled the edges for texture.

Next, I cut 6 smaller leaves (approx. 3.5”) in the purple ‘Let’s Go’ paper.  I layered these on top of each other in two stacks of 3. I folded them in half down the center and stitched through them to create a layered effect – great for lots of dimension.

The final leaf I cut to around 2.25” in the green ‘Breathe Deeply’ paper. Again, I folded these in half down the center of the leaf and glued just the fold to the background using Glossy Accents.  I left the sides of the leaves free so they could be folded up once the glue had dried.

I positioned my photo to the bottom right of the design, double mounting it on patterned paper and distressing the edges. I also layered a tag from the ‘Thankful’ paper underneath, with just the top visible. 

I fussy cut some leaves from the ‘Breathe Deeply’ paper and clustered these, along with some of the gold Puffy Leaf Stickers around my photo. I also added a foam thicker saying ‘Grateful for You’.

I stamped my title onto plain white cardstock and fussy cut each letter, sticking them flat on to the design as they were quite small. To finish the page off, I added some splatters of black ink and that was the page complete.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this walk through my layout, and that it may inspire you to create with this beautiful kit.


 Take care,
