October Perfect Pages

This month I wanted to feature some of the latest shapes in scrapbooking trends: the chevron and hexagon.  The layouts do not feature photos due to them being a collection for a class at Sugar and Spice Paper Co.  Spaces have been left for individual personalization and journaling.


  This layout uses a square punch cut diagonally to create the 2 1/2 rows of chevrons.  I am liking using this method with a variety of prints.   I must admit that individually I wouldn't have thought of this bright green and the aqua for a fall layout, but I like the non traditional feel to the layout.  The flowers are all made from circle and scallop punches and are topped with a button laced with some twine.  I'd love to finish this one off with a scarecrow on the right hand side with just enough space left above for some journaling.

The Great Outdoors

I have been inspired by the new Bo Bunny Camp-a-Lot line which is featured on both pages of this layout.  The marshmallow, brown dot, and hexagon papers are from Moxie.  The hexagons were individually cut and then puzzle pieced to make a path across the paper.  The mats are finished off with some fibers in burgundy and brown.  It's hard to see in this photo, but there is a paw print punched strip from an EK Success punch near the center of the right hand page.


Lazy Days of Summer

I loved the vibrant colors of the Bo Bunny Hello Sunshine line but could not picture the papers used in big sheets, so I cut them into strips and fussy cut the flowers and hexagons from them instead.  I created the titles and large yellow journaling hexagon in my Sure Cuts a Lot program.  The photo doesn't show it really well, but the flowers on the bottom left are backed by dimensional tape and so are the hexagons grouped on the top right.
