At the Patch - Layout

Hello, happy fall! To celebrate the changing of the season I'm here with a fall themed layout. These pictures were of Riley's first trip to a pumpkin patch.

I used a sketch from Scrapbook Generation, Sketches for Scrapbooking: One Page Sketches, Volume 2. Say that 10 times fast.

At the Patch layout

I loved the Lily Bee collection, Autumn Spice. With a very young child last year I didn't have time to make layouts and sadly the beautiful papers sat unused. Just because the collection came out a year ago that doesn't mean it isn't as stunning now as it was then. Some new embellishments went perfectly, I love mixing older products with something brand spankin' new.

It also gave me a chance to use some much older Thickers. I'm a sucker for anything woodgrain and bought these as soon as they hit the market, over two years ago. Wow, I really need to use things a little bit faster.

The main embellishment was this large chipboard piece, but the shape just wasn't working for me. I layered it on a sticker from the same collection, that worked much better for my page. You'll notice there really isn't much embellishment at all, the papers were so pretty that I didn't want to cover too much up.

Autumn Spice is still easily found and I encourage you to give it a look if you haven't before. It looks great on the screen and in person it's simply stunning. The woodgain paper I used as the background is the best I've come across, I'll be buying more of that for sure.

Thanks for stopping by. Supply list below.


  1. Those papers are beautiful; love the touches of blue! Great autumn page!
