Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop - Fall

Hi Crafters,

Welcome to the Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop! We are a group of crafters from acreoss the world who are passionate about keeping memories and we do this in the form of scrapbooking. This month we are focusing on Autumn (or Fall as it's known in the USA!). I dont normally feature autumn in my crafting but this month not only have I made an autumn card, but also now a 12x12 scrapbook page 😊

So whether you have just hopped in from Rebecca-Jo or come directly to me, I hope you enjoy this tour and get inspired to create your own autumnal memories. Once you're done here, just click the next button below to move onto Cheryl's blog.

I wanted to capture the myriad of colours at this time of year so opted for a base sheet of Natures Poem designer series paper. The beautiful skeleton leaves create the perfect background. 

If you turn the paper over, you have a vivid orange type design, I cut rectangles and sqyares from a second sheet. Two measuring 6" x 4 1/4" and three measuring 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

I then cut Crushed Curry card to layer onto the shapes. Two @ 5 3/4" x 4" and three @ 3" x 3"

Next I stamped the letters to make "AUTUMN" using Pumpkin Pie ink on Crushed Curry card, then die cut them.

I used Sunshine Wishes dies and Celebrate You Thinlits dies to cut the words "Love" and "You" in Copper glimmer paper from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. I also die cut the heart from Sunshine Wishes.

Finally I sponged Flirty Flamingo ink onto a piece of vellum, followed by Gorgeous Grape and Bermuda Bay before die cutting Dragonfly wings from Deailed Dragonfly Thinlits dies. I then cut the black Dragonfly from the same set and glued the coloured wings behind. I have only glued his tail to the page for now so I can slide a photo underneath.

Now you've seen how I've interpreted the theme, do please take the time to visit the other Stampin Up! demonstrators in the hop and be inspired!
