Many years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!

Rakin' in the fun!

I have to give credit for this layout to Lisa, SCS Runs with Scissors (visit her blog at Runs with Scissors Lisa).  Also I can't take credit for the title. I found a neat website called The Perfect Title.  A few years ago, our SU demonstrator, Jeannette  Kinney along with Shannon, SCS Zowee organized an event which featured scrapbooking as the shoebox project.  We were each assigned a month or holiday.  Then we had to design a 2 page LO, have one completed as a sample & make up kits for everyone else.  By the end of the day, we all went home with completed kind of crafting!  Lisa did November so she used fall colors & leaves.  I'm sorry I can't give credit to the stamp companies because I'm not sure where she got the stamps.  I think the tree is from SU but not sure about the sentiment.

I love how Lisa used burlap & punched maple leaves on both pages.  As you can see in the left close up, she also used buttons tied with twine.  I have to say she did a lot of prep work for us!  I made 2 additions...on the left page I added matting to the journaling area because I'm not much on handwriting & a maple leaf brad.  On the right page, I didn't have a photo that would fit the vertical mat so I added a small piece of card stock with maple leaf brads then placed twine where the photo met the card stock.   I have to say this is a perfect LO for these photos! 

Thanks for looking!!

Supplies:  Unknown DSP; SU card stock Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla; Unknown maple leaf brads. SU Twine, Cricut lettering; The Perfect Title

  1. I'd say "nice LO", but that would probably be a little self serving. LOL! I will say that your additions are perfect. Also, the SU set is "Branch Out". I should post mine. What do you think?
