“Family”, by Stephanie Smokovich.
I knew this family photo of my sister and her kids would be perfect for the new Hello Autumn collection. The colors in the photos, especially in their clothing is a great fit for the coordinating colors in the collection. I chose just one photo from the photo shoot that day, one that was my favorite to create this single page layout. The layout started as a square within a square within a square (patterned paper, designer wash tapes and patterned paper again). Once I narrowed down my space for the photo the rest fell together as I clustered and group different sticker, die-cut and border elements.

“Hayride”, by Kelly Holbrook.
The Bella Blvd & Unity Stamp “Leaf Without You” was the perfect touch to add some extra leaves to the already fabulous Hello Autumn collection. For the design, I formed triangles using 3 circles, and 3 Ciao Chip leaves to help draw the eye.

“For You” card, by Ashley Marcu.
I love customizing boxes for personalized gift wraps. To decorate my box I measured and cut paper to fit around the middle. Then I cut a piece of the border patterned paper from Tiny Tots to make a colorful background for the sentiment. To add even more color I combined two colors of the new Amorie chipboard letters.

“Mummy Attack” card, by Ashley Marcu.
The cute little Mummy deserved to be the focal point of this card so I die cut a square hole and adhered him to the back with dimensional adhesive. I added a few embellishments around the square to draw your eye in and add some interest.
