Fall is here! Let’s take a trip to the Apple Orchard or maybe you want to go to the Pumpkin Patch! A little story about pumpkin patches…I started scrapbooking when our first grandchild was born. And boy did I love documenting everything about his growth. When he was 3 I wanted to take him to a pumpkin patch for the sole purpose of being able to do a photo shoot there and as a result create a scrapbook page. So whether you scrapbook or make cards, make sure you enjoy the fall weather and do something fun! Our Guest and Design Team has some fabulous project to share with the September kit “Orchards and Patches.” Please visit Scrapping for Less to get your kit.

Card 1, Sketch 1
How sweet is this image/sentiment?? I followed the sketch as shown and used the image/sentiment from the stamp set for the circle portion of the card sketch. I colored the image with Copic Markers and added some Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush.
Card 2, Sketch 3
This gnome is so perfect for fall and I love the sentiments in this stamp set. This sketch is for a slimline card, which is longer than 6 inches so I had to use 2 different patterns, which I really like. I colored the gnome with Copic Markers and added him with foam adhesive. The sentiment is from the stamp set. I stamped with Versamark ink and used white embossing powder. I trimmed that with an oval die and added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges. I also die cut 3 leaves using one of the dies I received in my banana split pack in this kit. I also used the Vintage Photo Distress Ink on those as well. I then popped up the sentiment with foam adhesive.
Card 3, Sketch 2
The pattern paper in this collection is gorgeous! I trimmed down 3 of them as shown in the card sketch. I didn’t want my card base to be solid so I grabbed the stencil from the banana split pack and used the Sunflower image and Peeled Paint Distress Ink to add some interest to my card base. Once that was done, I added the ribbon to the card base with tape runner and then put my rectangle pieces over that. I wrapped my ribbon around, adhered it with tape runner and added a button from the collection where those 2 ends meet.
Card 4, Sketch 4
This collection has the cutest paper. This screams fall to me. Pumpkin picking, hayrides and Pumpkin Pie! “Secret Phrase is Who doesn’t love pumpkin pie?” I trimmed a piece of card stock to create a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card base. I trimmed my pattern paper as shown on the sketch and used a piece of ephemera for my sentiment.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
