Today I have a fun fall layout to share with you. Earlier this week Design Team member, Kathy Helton shared a spooky Halloween layout so thought I would create a layout that’s perfect for your pumpkin patch and fall pictures. I used photo sleeves and it consists of six 6” x 4” blocks. I really love this style of scrapping – it is fun. In my Instructions and Dimensions I will outline each block – starting from the top left.

Design Tips

Amy McCabe - SVGCuts Design Team Member

  • Many different companies make these sleeves – I used sleeves from We R Memory Keepers. If you have not tried this style of scrapping give it a try, it is great fun!
  • I kept my blocks with photos simple to draw focus to the photos. The photo in block 5 had an empty spot on the right side so I added the pumpkin and twine to accent.
  • I used the same patterned paper in blocks 2, 3 and 6. This helps to keep the design consistent – try not to use too many different types of patterns to avoid a busy layout. I also staggered the photos.
  • Want to try a new technique? Try sanding the edges of your photos, it gives them a rustic look which was perfect for this fall layout. See blocks 1 and 4.
  • Paper collection is from Echo Park’s Reflections Fall. I purchased the digital kit and printed papers as 12x12 and 6x6.

Hope you have a Happy Fall!
