Thanks for stopping by. You have reached blog #5, where I will show you photos of a cute little 8x8 album I made last weekend. Creative Memories has really outdone themselves this year with beautiful fall themes. Using natural pages, along with the Pumpkin Spice, Gather Together and Croptoberfest collections, I premade all the layouts for photos that had not yet arrived in the mail! It only took me a few hours, and I was very pleased with the results. I STILL don't have my Halloween and Thanksgiving photos from last year, but the pages are ready!
I used a lot of Border Maker cartridges, as well as CM border punches - some still available and others not. It's easy to made substitutions with tools that you have on hand. Think of our ideas as a guide - no need to copy them exactly!
Remember, you can click on the photos for a larger view.
|A satisfying stack of pages! They will look great in this CM album.|
|I decided the pumpkins needed their "grooves" and added those with a pen|
|Multi-colored paper shows through a border made with Garland Border Maker cartridge|
|My all-time favorite CM sticker: the Pumpkin Spice coffee cup!|
|Love this cute, non-scary collection!|
|Bronze Shimmer cardstock is great for accenting your pages|
|This is just a square of Gather Together paper with one edge folded over to make a border - so easy! And you can see both sides of the beautiful paper.|
