I love fall!!

Hey guys, Michelle here with another layout using the fabulous Falloween Classic Kit. This week our pages are all about leaves which is pretty easy to do given the time of year!

For my layout I used the acorn patterned paper along with those wonderful leaf doilies which were perfect placed behind my photos.

I also used lot of those great chipboard pieces on my page, including the title.
So who else is having fun documenting Fall with the Falloween kits??

Documenting Week 38 with Falloween!

Danielle here! Today I have week 38 of my Project Life to share, using the Falloween Daily Diary Kit by 

First up is the Process Video

This weeks Design Team challenge is Falling Leaves - use leaves somewhere on your layout.

This week my boys wanted to include some drawings. Noah drew a picture of our dogs, and Liam drew a picture of me! I also included a tag from a new shirt my husband purchased.

you can see here that for the challenge, I used 2 3x4 cards with leaves printed on them, then added one of the Pebbles Rubber Charms that is a leaf.

I found some pictures the boys drew, on their desks, and decided to include them, using a 8.5 x 11 page protector. For some added fun and texture I stitched a ruffled strip of purple velvet ribbon from my stash.

And here are some close ups

Thanks for stopping by! How is your 2016 Project Life coming along?

Falloween: Halloween Dance

Good morning, friends! Jana Eubank here. I'm back with another page using the beautiful Falloween kits!

This week we are highlighting the season with the "Falling Leaves" challenge, where we are to use leaves somewhere on our project. I love this challenge, because the falling leaves in October are one of my favorite things about the season. There is nothing like a confetti of warm colors sprinkling around you as you walk down the street. :D

For my layout, I used the American Crafts orange leaf die cut as a background element in my layers. I also punched several leaves from the green cardstock to accent the flower clusters (Falloween Daily Diary Kit) and other elements on the page.


I love the woodgrain Thicker alphabet letters in this kit. They reminded me of a tree branch and I thought it would be fun to add punched leaves to the first letter of each word in my title. 

I used a lot of embellishments from the Daily Diary kit on this page. Here, I accent the fox wood veneer with flower embellishments and a pumpkin I handcut from one of the journaling cards.

I brought the wood and floral elements to the other side of the page by creating this cute, little cluster next to the journal card.

I hope you are having a beautiful October, wherever you are in the world. It is my favorite month of the year! I hope you'll take a minute to get outside and enjoy the falling leaves and then come in and use them as inspiration on your next project.

See you again soon!

Falling Leaves Challenge

Hello and Happy Tuesday!! Lynn here with another Project Life page using this month's "Falloween" Daily Diary Kit.  This will be another Fall themed page and then next week's spread will be all about Halloween. That's how versatile this kit is! The Design Team's challenge this week is "Falling Leaves". We were to use leaves somewhere on our projects. There are PLENTY of leaf embellishments in our kits so this was a breeze! Here's my page.

I used the Pebbles "Woodland Forest" papers and rubber charms for my page. I added a few stickers from Simple Stories as well. Here's the title card - I kept it simple so the leaves would be the focus.

For the next card I placed fun foam under the 4x4 card and that allowed for dimension and also to add the tree stickers under and on top of the card. Fun foam is a GREAT addition to foam tape - it provides uniform coverage (great for card makers) and is inexpensive. 
Here's some close ups of the cards. The enamel dots are from my stash and happened to be by Pebbles as well! I'm sure these were from a previous Noel Mignon Kit!! Love when that happens!! I added a Pebbles Rubber Charm Leaf to the pumpkin thankful card.
The leaf paperclip on the next card is from Doodlebug - I had that in my stash.
More rubber charms on the last few cards - these add a nice pop of color and dimension.
Here's the last few cards - the bunny card is my FAV on the page!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll keep checking in this week for more inspiration from the Design Team! Have a great week!

{Falling Leaves} Challenge with the "Falloween" Classic Kit

Hello!  It's Meridy here and I have a double page layout to share with you today using the "Falloween" Classic Kit.  The design team has been challenged to use leaves on our layouts this week for the Falling Leaves Challenge.  I live in the desert, so there are not many opportunities to get pictures of fall colored leaves, but I was able to include a few leaf embellishments on my layout!

I started by choosing some pictures that matched the papers and color scheme in the kit.  I found these photos of my daughter from last November, and knew immediately I had to use them!

I laid out the overall layout and layers, including where I wanted to add fringed paper that I created.  Maddy's favorite animal is an owl, so when I got my kit I knew I wanted to use the owl on a page about Maddy right away.  

My favorite part of this layout is my title using a mixture of different Thickers fonts.  Some are from previous Noel Mignon kits, and some are from my stash.  I laid the title out a few different ways until I got everything tucked in nicely.  Then I adhered the Thickers to the layout.

Once I began adhering the layers and photos to the layout, I was able to work on placing the embellishments around the layout.

I liked the way the fringe came out.  It was so simple to do, and really makes an impact on the layout.  I used fringe scissors to create the fringe.

Since the fringe is such a big party of this layout, I decided to keep the embellishments on the simple side.  I started with the "So sweet & Happy".

I finished off the page with a fussy cut mini owl and a strip of washi tape to seperate the fringe from the rest of the layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by to see my layout!  See you next week :)

Monkey Time | Falloween Classic Kit

Good Morning, crafty friends!  Wendy here today to share a new challenge with you, "Falling Leaves" Challenge!  For this challenge use leaves somewhere on your project.  I LOVED those big die cut leaves included in the Falloween Classic Kit and I decided to use both of these for my page base.

I ripped the stripe paper to give a rustling, crunchy leaf pile feel and the color imitated the gorgeousness of fall leaves.

To add more leaves to my page, I grabbed the gold scalloped washi tape included in a past kit and a leaf punch, and made my own leaves.  

Designer Tip:  The washi tape is a little flimsy and gets stuck so I would back the tape with paper first to make it easier to punch.

Ever have a blank spot that needs something, but you don't want to detract from the rest of the page?  Try folding your paper back to expose another pattern underneath!  I actually made this corner as it wasn't on my background paper I had used.

Thanks for joining me today, good luck on your "Falling Leaves" challenge and make sure you share your creations on the FB page!

Halloween After Party | Falloween Classic Kit

Happy Saturday friends, Laura here today sharing a new page using the awesome Falloween Classic Kit!!  This week the DT is embracing another challenge given to us by our DT coordinator, Meridy, which is to "scraplift" a fellow DT member or one of our Facebook Group Members.  I chose to do the latter, and this is the layout that I created.

I poked around the albums and photos in our Members Facebook group just loving the inspiration!  It took me a little while to narrow it down but finally decided on this page by Julie Evers.

I stayed pretty true to the inspiration layout, with the exception of pushing my main focal area over to the right, just so slightly.

Here are a few close up of my design elements.

I am loving the embellishments in the Noel Mignon Falloween kit, the puffy stickers and wood buttons from American Crafts are so cute!

And let's not forget the sweet painted wood elements!

Darling die cuts and fun patterns papers from Bella Blvd.

And spooky clips and flair too!

I have created another process video for this layout, you can check it out below or here on my You-Tube channel!

Supply List:  Bella Blvd patterned paper - Pumpkin Day and Casper from the Spooktacular collection;  Pebbles patterned paper - moonlight, jackolantern and hocus pocus from the Trick or Treat collection; Bella Blvd ephemera and clips; Echo Park chipboard and washi; American Crafts wood buttons, wood shapes, flair and puffy stickers; Heidi Swapp glitter alphas. (from my stash: Hemptique twine, Mr. Huey's black mist,  Sharpie pen)

Thanks so much for visiting and be sure to check back next week when we have a whole new DT challenge for you!
