The temperature in Raleigh has gotten much cooler in the past week (Frost predicted!) and the leaves have started to turn color. Driving around town and seeing the beautiful reds and yellows that have started to emerge has made me think of fall designs for my scrapbook pages. I have heard that the colors this fall are going to be spectacular so I designed a page for my Scrapbook Club on Saturday so that the club members will have a page ready for any fall photos they may be taking in the next week or two.
I had so many design ideas that it was hard to choose the layout for this page. I finally decided to use Autumn Days and some left over Autumn Traditions designer series paper.
This then dictated the colors I would use for the page. Here's the page my club members made:
Often scrapbookers feel that layouts need to be complicated and use a lot of accessories. They certainly can but sometimes simple is good too! The other two pages my club members will be making are more complicated so I decided to keep this page a bit more simple. What the photo doesn't show you is that the pine cone images across the top of the page have been glittered using a 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamond glitter. I deliberately left room for journaling: the three Always Artichoke rectangles can be used for three photos or two photos and a journaling box, depending on what each scrapbooker wants for her page.
