Would you like to have some scrappy fun THIS weekend (October 23rd – 25th)? Would you like to participate in one of my page classes – or how about 6 of my page classes? This is your opportunity to scrapbook along with me to learn new techniques and to create 6 unique layouts that I created using CM’s Croptoberfest Bundle!
Would you love to participate, but you already have plans for the weekend? That’s okay! I’ll be recording all of my page classes and demonstrations, and they’ll be available for you to watch at your leisure over the next month. I’ll also be sharing instructional handouts for my layouts.
In addition to the demos and page classes, there will be Sketch Challenges and opportunities to Scrap & Chat and visit with croppers from the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand! There will be an opportunity to purchase discounted and discontinued CM products from me. Plus we’ll have a few fun games and some door prizes!
Are you a digital scrapbooker? There will also be instructional videos on how to create my layouts digitally using Artisan software!
After you’ve paid your $25 fee, you will receive an email invitation to join the private Facebook group that I created for the event. Through the Facebook group, I’ll be sharing the demo and page class videos, handouts, and Facebook Live posts. And participants will be sharing photos of their layouts there. For the Page Classes and Scrap & Chat sessions, we’ll be using Zoom. I’ll keep the private Facebook group up for several weeks, so you’ll have plenty of time to print the handouts and view all of the videos at your leisure. You’ll also have an entire week to complete layouts to be entered into door prize drawings.
I’ll be using CM’s Croptoberfest Bundle for the 6 layouts that I created and also CM’s Hello, Autumn Decorative Bundle for another Page Class and some samples. You may use any materials that you like. But if you would like to use the Croptoberfest Bundle, you can still purchase it through my CM website link. Look under Shop > Virtual Event Kits > Croptoberfest.
I hope that you join us! I would love to meet you!
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.

Our Exclusive Croptoberfest Paper and Stickers evoke a warm fuzzy fall feeling with beautiful muted and textured papers! Our Croptoberfest items are only available for a limited time and are only available directly from a CM advisor. Please contact me if you would like to purchase them.
To make my pages below, you’ll need the Croptoberfest paper and stickers, our Maple Leaf Punch and our Border Maker System with Picket Fence Cartridge and Circle Weave Cartridge. I also used our Mint ABC/123 Stickers for my title on this first page.
Instructions to make this layout:
From diamond patterned paper (see photo), cut two 1-3/8” x 12” strips following the pattern of the paper as shown.
Noting direction of the pattern, cut dark wood grained paper in half. Cut mottled green paper in half. Lay a piece of the wood grained paper abutted on top of a piece of the green using the grid on your custom cutting system mat as a guide to line up the pieces to a perfect 12″ x 12″ shape. Adhere a border piece horizontally to the center of the page to hold both sides together. Repeat with second page.
Using the red blade on the outside edge of the 4” x 6” oval pattern, cut an oval from the orange word patterned paper. Using your scissors cut a little dip in the top center of the piece to make it look like the top of a pumpkin. Using the green blade on the outside edge of the 4” x 6” oval pattern, cut an oval from the brown cardstock. Adhere the patterned piece on top of the brown piece. Use scissors to trim the brown cardstock to follow the dip that you had previously cut in the patterned paper.
Using the red blade on the outside edge of the 3.5” x 5” oval pattern, cut an oval from the orange word patterned paper. Using the green blade on the outside edge of the 3.5” x 5” oval pattern, cut an oval from the brown cardstock. Cut both pieces in half vertically and adhere patterned pieces to the brown pieces. Using your scissors, freehand cut a stem piece from the green word patterned paper. Adhere this piece to the brown cardstock and cut brown cardstock with scissors to create a mat for the green stem piece.
Assemble and adhere your pumpkin pieces on the first page as shown.
From red word patterned paper, cut two 4.25” x 6.25” photo mats and mount photos. From beige wood grained paper, cut four 3.75” x 3.75” photo mats. Crop four photos to 3.5” x 3.5” and mount on mats.
From the backside of the paper with the journaling boxes, cut a 4.75” x 3” journal box. From dark brown wood patterned paper, cut a 5” x 3.25” mat for the journaling box.
Adhere photos and journaling box to pages.
Using the border maker with picket fence cartridge, punch two borders from the dark brown wood patterned paper. Use foam squares to adhere to bottoms of pages.
Using maple leaf punch, punch leaves from the red word patterned paper, green word patterned paper and the orange word patterned paper.
Adhere “Love This” sticker to green word pattern and trim to a ribbon shape.
Add leaves and stickers to page as shown using foam squares on the ribbon piece and green leaf.
Add title and journal.
Instructions to make this layout:
Cut two 1.5” x 12” strips from the dark brown mottled paper. Cut two 1” strips from the green word patterned paper. Using the border maker, punch two circle weave borders from the dark brown wood patterned paper. Layer and assemble pieces as shown.
Noting direction of the pattern, cut the beige wood grained paper in half. Noting the direction of the pattern, cut the diamond patterned paper in half. Lay one of each piece side-by-side on top of your custom cutting system mat using the grid so that the pieces line up to a perfect 12×12 shape. Adhere a border piece vertically to the center of the page to hold both sides together. Repeat with second page.
From the backside of the paper with the journaling boxes, cut a 4” x 3.25” journal box.
From the brown mottled paper, cut two 4.25” x 6.25” photo mats and a 4.25” x 3.5” mat for your journaling box.
From the green word patterned paper, cut four 4.25” x 4.25” photo mats. Crop four photos to 4” x 4” and adhere to mats. Adhere all of your photos and journaling box to your pages.
From green word patterned paper, red word patterned paper, and orange word patterned paper, punch leaves using maple leaf punch.
