Monthly Reveal with Laura | Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice

Hi there!

It's Laura here today sharing some cards and layouts with you for my monthly reveal using the super sweet Pumpkin Spice Collection by Simple Stories! I adore this collection, with its rich fall colour scheme and great embellishments, it was so fun to work with! Let me tell you a bit about my projects.

Happy Fall

I so LOVE this background paper, it is magic.  So of course it had to be a main part of my layout.  It worked perfect for this page with its tight focal area, leaving a lot of white space (or gorgeous wood grained space) open.

Here are a couple of close up photos of my embellishment clusters, I used lots of pop dots to give my page some dimension.  I also added in a bit of texture paste and floss for extra texture.  I dug into my stash for some alpha stickers that would coordinate and found these super oldies from Studio Calico.  I think they work perfectly, and given their age it was high time I used some of them ;)

Fall Delights

This burlap look paper with the flowers printed on it is another great pattern. I always love the look of these type of papers with a spray of flowers or other pattern in the corner, but struggle with how to use them and often end up using the B side.  So this time I challenged my self to use the side that I struggle with and guess what? I love the way it turned out! 

I used a die cut from the collection as part of my title and die cut the word "delights" with my Silhouette.  I really like the look of mixed alpha titles.

More great stickers and die cuts with added dimension thanks to my stash of pop dots!

Autumn Colours

I added a piece of vellum to this page, although I was hoping it would be a little more translucent so that you could see the work I put into the background, I just wanted it to sort of play off the wispy clouds in the photos a bit.

I love these epoxy Bradz, no piercing and no little prongs to deal with!

Another title that is part die cut and part Silhouette cut.

This collection comes with some of the sweetest stickers and die cuts, just perfect for every day photos.

I also created a set of mini gift cards, there was just something about these little round stickers, with cute sentiments on them that spoke to me!

You will be seeing more from me using this collection, in the meantime, please visit my blog if you want to learn a bit more about these projects and see which sketches I used to jump start my designs.
