September is over! Where did it go? It has been a gorgeous fall so far...so nice and warm. The trees are starting to show their true colors! (Did you know that the colors are there all along? In the summer, there is so much chlorophyll produced (which is green) that it covers up all the other colors? Yup....former science teacher...)
Anyways, while decorating for fall, we got these gorgeous mums at the Farmer's Market. The funny thing about these photos of Charlotte is that even though she looks so girly and cute with the flowers and the pink shirt, she was actually looking through the flowers and dirt for bugs!! That's my girl!
I used the October Scrapbook Circle kit, which has the most gorgeous colors for fall! I noticed that in the kit that many of the colors were part of the latest color challenge at ScrapFriends, too, so I focused on using those colors on my page.
For the background, I began by stamping with the exclusive Scrapbook Circle stamp with Versamark and heat embossing with white powder. The I went over it with some Gelatos and used water to blend. Finally, there are a few green splatters and a lightly stamped Dear Lizzy chevron stamp.
I also used the exclusive "You Are" stamp, too. I tried covering it with the Gelatos, misting it with water, and then stamping. It worked OK, but I think it would be better with less detailed designs. I outlined it with a black pen to make it stand out better.
I used some free leaf svg files i found online and cut them with my cricut. Then I stitched down the center of each.
Lots of fun layering with papers, die cuts, envelopes, stickers, and sequins!
Here is a peak at the October kit:
