Once I started playing with the beautiful It’s Fall Y’all Collection from Creative Memories, I couldn’t stop! I created a versatile double-page layout to share during our Creative Life Scrapbook PJ Party and continued to create a few more. If you love my PJ Party Demo Layout that featured the Wheatfield Border Punch, you’ll likely also love the layout below.

After punching my designer paper with the Wheatfield Border Punch, I cut the border apart to create individual stalks of wheat that I gathered together to create a fall sheave. I completed the wheat bundle with a hand-tied raffia-style bow. Please view my video on You Tube for a demo on how to tie the bow. Please note that the Wheatfield Border Punch was a promotional punch offered by Creative Memories earlier this year and is no longer available.
However, Creative Memories is offering three new exclusive punches as part of our 2021 Black Friday Promotion! With a purchase of $160, you can select one of three FREE bundles of product that include an exclusive collection of paper, stickers and embellishments, an album and also a unique exclusive punch.

To Create My Layout:
1. Cut a 1-3/4″ “L”-shape from a piece of the plaid designer paper.
2. Place a sheet of the ledger print paper on top of the “L” piece at an angle and adhere. Use the 12″ Trimmer to cut off the excess
paper to create a 12″ x 12″ piece.
3. Punch gold designer paper with the Wheatfield Border Punch. Use the 12″ Trimmer to cut in-between the individual wheat
stalks. Use the sight guides on the 12″ Trimmer to help you align the paper.
4. Layer and adhere the individual wheat stalks into a sheave. My stalks are 6-1/2″ – 4-3/4″ in height.
5. Cut a 1/8″ strip of Hot Fudge Cardstock, and tie into a raffia-style bow. Attach the bow with a small Foam Square. See my video for a demo on how to tie the bow.
6. Complete the layout with photo mats, embellishments and stickers.
My second layout will be great for some photos that I took while my husband and I took a drive to view the fall color. I really love the color palette of the It’s Fall Y’all Collection! I also love the ledger and grid prints in the It’s Fall Y’all Tone on Tone Paper Pack. They provide a fresh contrast for the designer prints. I used the Five Leaf Punch to create a cascading border of fall colored leaves to accent the layout.
To Create My Layout:
1. Cut 1″ hollow frames from two sheets of Navy Cardstock.
2. Cut two sheets of green leaf paper to 11-3/4″ x 11-1/2″. Attach the leaf paper pieces to the navy frames abutting the right and
left edges together to create a double-page.
3. To create the border, cut a 1-3/4″ x 11-1/2″ strip from Navy Cardstock. Cut a 1-1/2″ x 11-1/4″ strip from grid paper. Layer and
adhere the pieces.
4. Use the Five Leaf Punch to punch leaves from a variety of designer papers. Working from the bottom of the border, attach the
leaves with small Foam Squares under the single leaves.
5. From Navy Cardstock, cut the following pieces: (4) 2-7/8″ x 1-5/8″; (1) 2-7/8″ x 4-1/8″; (1) 6-1/4″ x 1-5/8″; and (1) 2-1/4″ x 4-
1/4″. From grid paper, cut the following pieces: (1) 2-3/4″ x 4″; (1) 6-1/8″ x 1-3/8″; and (1) 2-1/8″ x 4-1/8″. From navy tree
paper, cut (4) 2-3/4″ x 1-1/2″. Layer and adhere pieces.
6. Cut 5 photo mats that measure 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″.
7. Arrange pieces on the layout and adhere.
8. Add stickers, embellishments and additional punched leaves as shown using Foam Squares to adhere some.
