2020 Fall blog hop

 Welcome to the Creative Life Scrapbooking 2020 Fall Blog Hop

Enjoy all the the Blogs 💗

For this project I used the Hello Autumn Collection 

I can't get enough of these beautiful embellishments.
With all the pieces that are embossed with gold .. its simple to make a fall layout. 

First I cut 2 - 6x6 squares using patterned paper. Then I used the arch border punch to create a frame.
With the edge of the square patterned paper .. line up the side with the line on the side of the punch, then line up the design for the next punch. Repeat as you go to the next side. 

Trim your photo to be 3.5 x 3.5 inches

Then cut one of the squares in 4 , lining up in the middle of the design.
rotate and repeat.  

this will create 4 pieces to use in the corners of your layout.

Have fun decorating with the embellishments and stickers ..

Arrange to highlight your middle photo.

Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree 

For this project I use the cloud border maker cartridge, foam squares, the 12 inch trimmer, and the Christmas spirit Collection.

Using the border maker system, I punched 2 , 12 inch strips with one patterned paper and punched 2 , 12 inch strips with another papered paper..

Use the 12 inch trimmer to cut at 2inches in between cuts to create 4 pieces.

Using alternating patterned strips.. cut one strip at 6 inches then the next strip at 5 inches.. the same strip at the next 5inches and put all pieces aside.
last two pieces.. checking that they are 2 different patterned papers. Cut both at the 4.5 mark the move piece along and cut at 4inches.. This will leave a 3.5 piece.
Arrange all pieces from the bottom, partly stacking and alternating the patterned papers.

Use foam squares only in the middle area to attach, as you will be trimming edges to create the Tree shape.

Mark the center at the top of the tree. Using the 12 inch trimmer. Create a cut from the top middle of tree and to the bottom of the tree, Do this on both sides.

Complete the layout with stickers and embellishments using more foam squares to create dimension.

Hope you enjoyed this idea

Bus stop Layout

For this layout I used the playtime Theme pack, Black Sans Serif ABC/123 Letter Stickers, some cardstock for matting, and the some rainbow rush papers I had. 

Let's Make Crayons!

Using the firecracker punch, punch different colors from your scraps.
for my layout I use 31 punches of the firecracker . I used 6 different colours, but you can use more or less colours, to suit your layout.

I used a 1.5 inch strip of patterned paper down the side.
then slid the firecrackers so they are all same length.

Repositional tape is the best to adhere the small punched pieces.

using the Black Sans Serif ABC/123 Letter Stickers, I made a school bus sign.
use your corner rounder to trim the edges. Use a ruler and double sided pen to draw around the edges.

finishes the corners free hand to create your nice sign.

Because of it being a school theme I decided to create a journal box that looked like school note book paper 

Finish off with stickers and foam squares to add dimension 

I added the sun border sticker from then new electric summer collection. I love how some many collections god so well together.

Hope you enjoy this idea for a bus stop page.
