Autumn's in the Air by Sandra Scott

Good morning crafters, Sandra here from Shop and Crop Scrapbooking with my very first post and layout as a Design Team Member.  

I was challenged by the colours in the Photoplay Falling Leaves Collection because I don't use the colours very often but when I found this photo of my grandson it all fell into place.

I started with a plain cardstock background then started my layers and one of the papers was perfect for a fussy cut banner (top of the page).  

I die cut some clouds and tiny leaves using the same paper along with a couple of strips for the bottom of the page and along the side.

The stickers from this collection were very fitting for my photo, though there wasn't a lot of fun being had here.

I also die cut some tags from scraps, added some twine and a few chevron wood veneers from my stash.

And now for some close-ups.

The products I used from the Shop and Crop Store are as follows:

Photoplay Falling Leaves Patterned Paper; #FL2324, #FL2328, #FL2329, #FL2331
  and from my stash
Tim Holtz Dies; Tags and Leaves #661597
American Crafts Cardstock
Twine and Wood Veneer

I thought you might also like to see the layout I did for the challenge this month at 


I had such fun with this one, I loved the colours and knew immediately which photo I was going to use.

I started with dry paint on my background, then used a stencil with paste, glitter washi tapes and some ephemera from my stash.  I also used a hand help punch for my tiny stars.

Here are the close-ups

I hope I've inspired you a little today and look forward to seeing your own creations for the challenge this month.
