To many, autumn is the most beautiful time of year. Mother Nature begins to diversity her color palette and the warm summer sun is replaced with warm and fuzzy memories spent with loved ones. The Gather Together collection is all about bringing the beauty of autumn to your pages and projects. If you’re looking to make a stunning autumn-themed scrapbook layout, then you’re going to love today’s post!
To create this two-page layout, you will need:
- Gather Together Paper Pack
- Gather Together Mat Pack
- Gather Together Foiled & Layered Embellishments
- Gather Together Designer Stickers
- Goldenrod Cardstock
- Original Border Maker System with the Garland Border Maker Cartridge
- 12-inch Straight Trimmer
- All-Purpose Scissors
- Foam Squares
- Tape Runner with Repositionable Tape Runner Refill
- Black Dual-Tip Pen
Step 1: You will want to use two pieces of cardstock or refill pages as the base for this two-page layout.
Step 2: Cut two pieces of the white patterned paper to measure 9″ x 12″, then cut another 10 pieces (two of each pattern) of various pieces of patterned paper to measure 12″ x 1″.
Then, using the yellow floral strips and the Garland Border Maker Cartridge, punch two 12-inch borders. Adhere the same patterned papers behind the punched borders for a subtle effect or different patterned papers for a more dramatic effect.
Step 3: Adhere the 9″ x 12″ white patterned papers to both sides of the layouts. Layer and adhere the strips to both sides of the layout as shown. Adhere the “beautiful life” border sticker along the polka dot strip.
Step 4: Mat four photos on photo mats of your choice. The four photos shown in the layout all measure 6″ x 4″ and are matted on the larger mats that measure 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″.
Step 5: Cut two pieces of the Goldenrod Cardstock to measure 4″ x 6″ and use the Garland Border Maker Cartridge to punch a garland decoration on the left side of one of the pieces and the right side for the other piece. Use the cardstock to mat the “Autumn” and “Season of Change” mats as shown.
Adhere one decorative mat to each side of the layout along with two of the matted photos per page as shown.
Step 6: Cut a strip of the polka dot patterned paper to measure 12″ x 1″. Use the All-Purpose Scissors to cut a “v” at the left side of the strip. Adhere on the left page as shown.
Step 7: Use the All-Purpose Scissors to cut the “Hello” image from the mat and the half circle with the leaf. Adhere them to the layout as shown using Foam Squares on the “Hello” cut to make it pop off the page.
Step 5: Adhere stickers, foiled embellishments and gemstone stickers as shown. Use a Black Dual-Tip Pen to journal in the circle on the right-hand side.
