Looks Like Fall...Pumpkin Picking

I've got a sketch challenge up on the Lily Bee blog today! We are playing with the Index Journaling Cards all week. These essential elements are so versatile...they can be used as a standalone part of your overall layout or card design, a photo mat, a great place to do your journaling and the list goes on. I created a sketch, which can be found on the Lily Bee blog, specifically with these cards in mind. I hope you'll play along and post your fabulous creations to our Flickr Group!

Here's my take on the sketch. I used the Autumn Spice collection and altered the sketch slightly, adding more base layers under the strips.

Supplies: Autumn Spice (Spice Vanilla 12x12 paper, Spice Nutmeg 12x12 paper, All Spice 12x12 paper, Brown Suger 12x12 paper, 6x6 paper pad, Index Journaling Cards, Mixed Stickers)

Creative How-to: I used three index journaling cards, slicing and dicing them to fit the layout just so. I cut the top tab off the "November" index card and then tucked the tab portion to the top right of the photo section. I used the card that says picking pumpkins as title for the layout.



Here's a little peek at the layers. I distressed the larger layers and kept the strips intact with more clean lines, added some stitching and then I scattered a few embellishments over the layout.


Journaling: I used this index card for my journaling and wrote my story so that it would end with the sentiment that is already pre-printed on the card.

Head over to the Lily Bee blog to see the sketch and how Nicole used it for her layout. Thanks for stopping by today!
