It’s time for pumpkin ideas! Our kiddos marched in the parade at the Circleville Pumpkin Show last week. It was a delicious way to get inspired for some scrapbooking layouts, crafts, and poems and quotes to use in your layouts.
Wood-looking paper really appeals to me. It looks perfect in this layout for four photos by Carolyn Wolff.
The burlap look of this paper adds to texture to this layout by Lori S. I am drawn to layouts with multiple photos (this one has 7) because I tend to have lots of photos on my scrapbook pages.
A template makes digital scrapbooking so much easier. Simply Kelly Designs has oodles of shaped templates to make your layouts stand out. Just add your photos, journaling, some paper and a couple of embellishments and you are finished and ready to move on to the next layout.
I don’t make a lot of cards, but I want to. I wish I had the talent to come up with designs like this one by Dawn McVey. Just beautiful!
This 3-d pumpkin surprise card idea could be used for a variety of craft projects. How cute!
Crafts For the Home
Below are a couple of tutorials to help you create items to decorate your home.
Quotes & Poems
Your scrapbooking layouts need titles and your cards need a sentiment inside them. Sometimes those ideas come easily and sometimes we need help. My favorite site for inspiration like that is DennyDavis.net. Denny has not only poems and quotes for scrapbookers, but also songs to go with each theme. Those songs are a great resource if you make videos with your photos and need some themed background music. Her site is very well organized and she even has games and jokes to go with some of her themes. Below are links directly to her Autumn, Trick or Treat, and Thanksgiving sections, but I encourage you to click around and explore her site. There is so much help there for album makers!
I hope this post has inspired you to do something creative this season. I quote one of the page toppers from Denny’s site when I say, “Happy Fall, Y’All!”
