Gilded Autumn Scrapbook Pages

 

Hi Friends!!  

 Here are some scrapbook pages we made a few months ago at Scrapbook Class.  The Designer Series Paper we used on these pages was on back order for quite a while, and then somehow I forget to ever get the pages posted once the DSP came off of back order.  So....  I'm finally sharing them now.  I hope you enjoy :).


 

We start our first page with a Very Vanilla base, then added three pieces of Gilded Autumn Designer Series paper to the side of our page in various sizes.

 

Next, we added three rectangle pieces of Early Espresso card stock to our page to frame our photos.

In the bottom corner of this page, we stamped "I'm so glad you're in my life" in Early Espresso ink on Cajun Craze card stock using the Love of Leaves Stamp Set.  We cut the end of our sentiment with the Banners Pick a Punch to create that flagged end.


Next, we die-cut leaves in Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron card stock using the Stitched Leaves Dies and added them to our page.  You can buy the Stitched Leaves Dies and Love of Leaves Stamp Set separately, or save 10% when you buy them in the bundle.

 

For our final finishing touches, we added a Mint Macaron Basketweave Ribbon bow and a couple of Elegant Faceted Gems to our sentiment.

Here's a peak at our 2nd page....



Again, we started with a Very Vanilla base and added three more pieces of Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper to the side of our page, along with three rectangle pieces of Early Espresso card stock to the center of our page.

 

I had a hard time deciding which pieces of DSP to use on these pages!!  I love pretty much all of the patterns in the DSP, so I tried to use as many different ones as I could!



At the top of this page, we stamped "Your friendship is something I know I can count on" from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on Mint Macaron card stock.  We punched this piece with the 1 1/2" circle punch and added it to our page.

 

We also die-cut three more leaves in Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze and Brushed Metallic card stock and added them to our sentiment.


Finally, we tied an Embroidered Ribbon bow and added it to our page.  This ribbon has become some of my favorite ribbon to work with.  It's beautiful, ties so easily and works great on Holiday projects, too!

I hope you enjoyed these pages!!


I'd love to have you join us at our next Scrapbook Class!


 Each month, we make three 12x12 scrapbook pages....  a coordinating 2-page spread, and then a single page spread that coordinates with the next month's single page spread.  It works out great!

If you'd like to join us at our next Scrapbook Class, this class meets on the last Tuesday of the month from 6-8pm.

 

Our next class meets on Tuesday, December 29. 

 RSVPs are due by Friday, December 18. 



Scrapbook Class details can be found here.

 

I hope you have an Inkspired day!
