Today’s post is rather quick since those of us in the U.S. will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday. This year I am cooking so I need a couple of days to prep. Not to mention, I have a valid reason to be on Pinterest for hours.
For today’s scrapbook page I am still working on last year’s pumpkin patch pictures. I seem always to be behind in my scrapbooking, perhaps when I am 80 years old, I will be caught up. However I am using a current collection so that evens everything up, right?
The idea for this layout came, when I was creating the fall card a couple of weeks ago, I previously posted when I only had the 6×6 pad. I couldn’t wait to receive the rest of the collection from Steals.com after scoring a great deal.
I liked the idea of creating dimension with a frame and tucking pictures behind it and using the word/phrase paper. I just wish the dimensional tape I used was thicker for more depth. Given the odd sizes of these pictures, my usual scrapbook style would not have done them justice. I feel the tight cropping needed to fit in the frame allows the viewer to focus on the action happening in the pictures.
This layout marks a milestone for me; it is the first time I have ever used washi tape on a layout. I now understand what I have been missing all this time; this tape is so versatile. For someone like me, who needs a few tries to get items straight on a page this tape is the answer. It didn’t tear my paper nor lose its adhesive properties when re-sticking it. I used the orange tape on the top and bottom as a defining border on the phrase paper. Aside from the multiple uses it in my craft room it will start to make its way into layouts and cards as borders…baby steps.
Simple Stories “Hello Fall” Collection colors inspire me, so putting together this layout along with other projects is easier. Which means I might finally finish these pumpkin pages not only this year but while it is still Fall.
