CLS Fall Blog Hop

Hi Scrap Happy Friends!

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.
