City Sidewalks Layout

I am so in the Christmas mood!! I try to hold off until after Thanksgiving but I'm going with, "Really?! Why wait?"  It's getting chillier but we still have a brown ground.  My kiddos were hopeful we'd get our piece of the first snowstorm of the winter, but it missed us.  (I'm okay with that for now...)

What have you been working on lately?  Do you have any Christmas crafts that you're trying to get ready for the holiday season?

I have been busy working layouts from November's special Happy, Happy Christmas and am loving it!

In addition to these 5 layouts I have prepared an additional 3 two-page layouts for this workshop and will be offering an EXTRA Happy, Happy Christmas Layout Workshop December 6th!  If you're local and would like to attend, contact me!  If you are not local but would love the workshop we can make that happen too - contact me today! Here's a sneak peak at one of the featured layouts in the workshop!

EXTRA Happy, Happy Christmas Layout Workshop - Sign up today!
So how about City Sidewalks? Love all this Christmas paper!  I created this layout using extra complements from the workshop that I had left.  Isn't that car full of traveling family a fun image?   This layout also has white glitter paper snowflakes on it cut from CTMH Snowflake Thin Cuts.

Quick and easy, this layout is ready for holiday pictures!

Sunday Paper: Autumn Splendor

This weather is GORGEOUS!!!  I am loving fall right now.  Seriously, November 6th is usually not shorts and t-shirt weather in Minnesota and we've been sporting them all weekend long.  Love it!

I thought I would share a layout with you that we created at a workshop back in August using Florence papers.  I love this paper for late summer, autumn projects.  It is rich in color - just beautiful. It was a paper pack featured in Seasonal Expressions 2 that retired August 31st, but... it's back!  While supplies last you can have your pick at the Florence paper, Florence complements and Florence Sequins.  Perfect timing to bring such beautiful paper back, in my opinion!

Layout created with Florence Papers and  Flower Market (Cricut).

To create this layout I used one piece of pattern paper and cut it diagonally to create the background. I used my Cricut Flower Market cartridge to create the title.  "Autumn" is a special cut on this cartridge that cuts proportionately to the banner.  "Splendor" is cut using the 2 fonts on the cartridge, a plain-slim font and a curly-slim font.  I also was able to cut the wheat from Flower Market.  The saffron pattern paper is also from the Florence paper and then I used peacock as an additional color. Add some sequin and... done!

If you'd like help recreating this layout or would like to create similar ones let me know! I'd love to have you join me for my next scrapbooking layout workshop!  Hop on over to my online shop and grab your Florence paper, complements or sequins while they are around.
