Hello and welcome! My friends and I at Creative Life Scrapbooking are so glad that you’re joining us for our Fall Blog Hop! After you finish looking at my projects, click on the link at the bottom of my post to hop over to Stefani’s blog to see more ideas.
Today I’m sharing scrapbook pages using all of Creative Memories fall themed products! I made my first page using the Exclusive Limited Edition Croptoberfest 2017 Project Recipe Kit. This kit contains decorative paper, stickers, cardstock and instructions to make two double-page layouts and is only available to purchase directly from a CM advisor. Instead of using the kit instructions, I used the materials to make my own fall themed page.
Use a 12″ x 12″ white scrapbook page or piece of white cardstock as your base. From the decorative paper and cardstock in the kit, cut a variety of strips of varying widths and 6″ in height. Using CM’s Original Border Maker System with the Zig Zag Cartridge, punch three borders from the orange print paper and cut each in half. From green floral print paper, cut a 12″ x 1/2″ strip. Using the Border Maker with the Scallop Dot Cartridge, punch a border from the teal cardstock and cut off of your cardstock at 2″. Assemble page as shown adding stickers and faux pen stitching as shown. I used Foam Square Adhesives to adhere some of my stickers.
I used CM’s Limited Edition Toil & Trouble Paper Pack and the Exclusive 2017 Croptoberfest Cardstock for my second page. This pack of cardstock coordinates with all of our fall collections and can only be purchased directly from a CM advisor. To make my page, use the cream cardstock in the pack as the base of the page. From the floral designer paper, cut a 3″ x 12″ strip. From the teal dot paper, cut a 2″ x 12″ strip. From wood print designer paper, cut strips that measure 1″ in height and notch the ends with scissors. Thinly mat the wood strips with the dark orange cardstock. Cut two 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ photo mats from the dark orange cardstock. Using the Maple Leaf Punch, punch 6 dark orange cardstock and 6 orange print leaves. Assemble page as shown adding title with CM’s new Burnt Orange ABC Letter Stickers.
The Countryside Comfort Collection was perfect for my last three fall pages. To make the page above, cut bird print paper to 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ and adhere to a 12″ x 12″ piece of brown cardstock (To conserve cardstock, cut out a hollow square frame from the center of the cardstock first.) From brown cardstock, cut a photo frame to 10-7/8″ x 4-1/4″. Crop photos to 3-1/2″ x 4″ and adhere to mat. Use CM’s new Victorian Fence Punch to punch a fence from brown cardstock and adhere underneath the top of the photo mat. Using the Border Maker with new Pumpkins Cartridge, punch two borders from brown cardstock and one border from orange print designer paper. Adhere the two brown pumpkins border together, and then add the orange pumpkin border onto the top adhering with Foam Squares. Adhere border to bottom of photo mat. From brown cardstock, use Maple Leaf Punch to punch 20 leaves. Use Maple Leaf Punch to punch 10 leaves from gold designer paper and 10 leaves from orange designer paper. Mat the leaves and assemble as shown. Adhere the top 6 leaves with Foam Squares. Add titles using the new Everyday Sentiments Embellishments.
To make my second Countryside Comfort page (above), cut wood print paper to 11″ x 11″ and adhere to top of the plaid paper. (To conserve paper, cut out a hollow square frame from the center of the plaid paper first.) Using the Border Maker with Scallop Dot Cartridge, punch a border from orange paper, cut off of your paper at 2″, and trim to 11″ wide. Using Victorian Fence Punch, punch a fence from brown cardstock, cut to 11″ wide, and trim as shown. From floral print paper, cut a 11″ x 3/8″ strip and thread through the fence piece as shown. (See photo below.) Using the Custom Cutting System with the largest Circle Pattern, cut a circle from floral paper using the green blade on the outside edge. Cut a circle from brown cardstock using the blue blade on the outside edge. Crop photos to 3-1/2″ x 4″ and mat with orange paper cut to 3-3/4″ x 4-1/4″. Assemble page as shown adding banners, a journaling box and Countryside Comfort stickers as shown. I used Foam Squares for my banners and stickers.
For my last page, I used paper, stickers, and variety mats from the Countryside Comfort Collection. I also used the November Sketch from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine as my inspiration.
To make the page above, cut the white/grey print paper to 4-3/4″ x 10″ and mat with a 5″ x 10-1/4″ piece of navy cardstock. Mat the two variety mats with navy cardstock cut to 1/4″ larger, and add photos that are also matted with navy cardstock. Using the Victorian Fence Punch, punch fence pieces from the white/grey print paper and navy cardstock. Using the Custom Cutting System with the heart from the Gemstone Patterns, cut a heart from orange print paper using the red blade on the outside edge and cut a second heart from navy cardstock using the green blade on the outside edge. Use CM’s old Daisy Punch and Maple Leaf Punch to punch flowers and leaves from wood print and orange print papers and navy cardstock. Assemble page as shown adding stickers and using Foam Squares to adhere the flowers and the bird stickers to the fence.

Love so many of your pages, especially your border, I find so many of the punches and border maker punches are no longer available. Is there anyway to get retired ones? They seem go rotate out pretty quickly.
