Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop

210910 Pumpkin Spice

Yes!  I rolled my eyes when I saw the title of this collection BUT, then I started creating with it and I LOVE the 3 layouts I made.  Each one focuses on recent experiences in our Aussie family.

The three layouts featured today have very simple base designs which were quick to make.  They were part of a pre-launch workshop for Close To My Heart Makers.  I did not want to go with an autumn or thanksgiving theme so enjoyed dressing them up with stamps and stickers for a different look.. 

Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch

This layout records my granddaughter’s early experiences with food.  I believe she prefers her mashed pumpkin as a facial cream!

 Pumpkin Spice Layout 1

It’s a very simple layout dressed up by paper candy around the title quote and journal box:

  • Pumpkin Spice sticker sheet
  • Pumpkin Spice Wood Stickers
  • Doodled Floral stamps and thin cuts coloured with Tri-blend markers
  • Stitched Fancy Brackets thin cuts form the base of the title and journal box
  • Rose Gold Liquid Pearls and Steel Stickles used as accents
  • 6x4 photo in a Flip Flap with flowers attached to the outside and act as a tab to lift it with

Winter Walks

As soon as I saw the jumper paper I thought of photos taken on winter walks, everyone rugged up against the cold wind, but enjoying being outside.

I had some fun with the Pumpkin spice stickers and wood veneer die cuts creating these two clusters.  Using the pumpkin stickers as a base for the winter woollies cluster, I was able to cover their stems so they just look like circles.

Final Farewell

This page will record our last visit to my darling mum before she passed away in July.  She loved autumn tones.  Adding water coloured flowers from the Doodled Florals stamp set takes your eyes off the pumpkins in the printed paper.

The title for this one is a combination of Cricut cuts and stamping using the super cute Prairie Alphabet stamps.
