“The Cutest Little Pumpkins”, by Stephanie Buice.
Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow I wanted to make sure I kept my layout fall themed, so I picked out a picture that my sister in law took of the kiddos last year at the pumpkin patch. I mixed in papers from almost all of the newest collections to get my color combo and really tried to play up the orange, although I didn’t add in any reds I still like the look I got. It just goes to show that you can take almost any collection themes and with a little imagination, make them fit your need perfectly.

"Our Santa", by Lisa Dickinson.
I love to get into the holiday spirit by scrapping festive photos and the new Make It Merry collection is perfect for doing just that! Holiday pages are also a great place to incorporate special techniques like the layered scallop borders I’ve created for this layout:
It’s a simple process that adds a lot of punch - literally! I selected seven different patterned papers and used a 1.5” circle punch, punching 8 circles for each row. Then, starting at the bottom edge of the page, I layered the circles row by row, adhering them with a line of double sided tape. I left the bottom portion of the circle un-adhered so they could be bent upward to add more dimension.
For a bit of added detail, I applied lots of the Little Bits and Treasures & Text stickers amongst the scallops, as well as embellishing the top edge of the page. And a whimsical title of Amorie Alpha chipboard and Tiny Text stickers finishes it off! So put on some Christmas tunes and grab the Make It Merry collection - and let the holidays begin!

“Ho, Ho, Ho” card, by Corri Garza.
I am so excited about the new Tiny Text Alphabet stickers. Their small size makes them perfect for creating sentiments on cards. I used the Santa card from the Make it Merry Borders & Bits sheet as the focal point for my card. The sentiment was created by spelling out “Ho, Ho Ho” with the black Tiny Text and trimming the Merry Christmas from a border.
