Leaf Pile w/ Kreaxions

Today is the Just Imagine/Kreaxions design team monthly reveal with the theme of Back to School or Fall.
I chose to go with Fall for my layout:

I started with a dark brown base and added this lovely Fall orange border paper from Moxxie's new Fall Harvest line and punched it with punch #307. I love the way the dark brown comes through the punched design.

In the photo above you can see how lovely the colors are together. I also used a strip of green punched border to go under my photos.

Here's a few more closeups of my layout.

You can see what the rest of the Kreaxions team did with their punches on the Just Imagine/Kreaxions blog.

Fall w/ My Scraps & More Sketches

 Hello! Today is sketchy Friday with this fab sketch from My Scraps & More Sketches:

And here is my take on it:

I can't think of anything more entertaining to do with leaves than watch your kids pile them up and jump in them. They were having so much fun this day!

I stuck fairly close to the sketch on this layout.

Since there wasn't any suggested areas for embellishment I just added them wherever I felt like it.

I had these cute chipboard letters that I hadn't used at all so I put them to work here.

As you can see I made my grids larger than on the sketch and instead of adding patterned paper here, I went with a cluster of embellishments. I think it was the perfect touch for this layout.

Discover layout w/ MS&M and LMT

 Hey! It's sketchy Friday!!!
Today's sketch from My Scraps & More is awesome!
And it was totally screaming for Love My Tapes, so I put them both to work.

 And my layout:

I pulled out a white piece of cardstock, grabbed my tapes and got busy.

I followed the sketch with the Brick Tape, but I used 2 layers side by side to make it wider. Then I added the Colorful Bold Dots tape. After getting those on I decided to go off the sketch a bit and added my third strip out on it's own.

I took the Sky or Clouds w/ Love tape and laid it out on my cutting mat. Then I used a ruler and my cutting knife to slice it the long way. I took the thin strips and added them in each square of my layout. I did beveled corners because I like the way they look. 

I added faux stitching along the side of the Clouds tape to keep the fun look it gave the sketch.

To finish up, add some fun embellishments, a bit of blue splatters, enamel dots and cute stickers.
You can check out what the rest of the dt did with this sketch on the My Scraps & More sketch blog and then join in the fun for your chance at the awesome prize!
