I absolutely love this time of year. I love that the kids go back to school and routine gets back in order. I love buying the school supplies. I love that the smell of fall is in the air and the leaves are beginning to change.
Today I am sharing with you a scrapbook page I did for my oldest son’s first day of school. I just got the painted harvest stamp set and punch bundle and the minute I laid eyes on it I knew I wanted to use it for this page. I had this picture in my mind and I couldn’t wait to put it to paper.
Doesn’t this just scream fall to you? I could have stamped the entire page, but for what I was wanting it for I knew it would be too much. Just look at the colors in those flowers, they are perfect. I actually copied the color combination from a fellow demonstrator by the name of Nancy Ferb, she used the color combination of crushed curry and berry burst and chocolate chip, and I have to agree with her that it is just stunning.
Please excuse the mess, but you know what a crafter’s desk looks like in the midst of crafting. Can you say disaster zone? Well I know that’s the case for me anyhow. That journaling card is from the color theory memories and more kit and look at those tiny leaves! I ended up crumpling them to make them look like real leaves do when they have fallen off the trees. The pumpkins are my favorite. I absolutely love everything about pumpkins, they are my favorite fall decor. I cut them out from the painted harvest dsp.
I added some journaling and a few more embellishments and tada! Page complete. I love the colors and how they work together. The leaves in the background I used the babywipe technique that I talked about in a previous blog post, I used the colors: crushed curry, rich razzleberry and cajun craze. You can read that blog post here.
I hope you enjoyed this page as much as I have, and that it has inspired you to use your stamps in a new way.
