Two for Tuesday

I'll be back to show you some interesting things tomorrow for Thanksgiving, but until then, here are two layouts from my November Counterfeit Kit.

Remember when I told you about my process for Preparing for a Crop? Well, I got a couple of sets of pictures/sketches out to do these layouts. What I couldn't believe was how FAST these two pages went together...I believe they will both be repeats in my collection - perhaps rotated or flipped...hmmmm....

So, first up, Look At Me, Look At Me! This layout is me experimenting with the more artsy style. I like it...but it took a little more work than my usual layout style. And trusting my instincts with a new style was hard too. I kept this layout out a bit before i felt comfortable with it.


Supplies:

Cardstock:
Bazzill in Cheddar

Printed paper:
Memoir Cupboard from Studio Calico
Apple Cheddar Soup Milk from Jillibean Soup

Embellishments:
Trees Mini chipboard set from Maya Road
Paper Tape from the Avignon collection by 7gypsies
Mini Market Stickers in Green and Cream from October Afternoon
Mister Huey’s Mist in Estate Green and Pony


Next is Piano Man...I love these pictures...they may be my favorites.


Supplies:

Cardstock:
Bazzill in Walnut

Printed paper:
Memoir Cupboard from Studio Calico

Embellishments:
Craft Border Stickers from Studio Calico
Elementary Collection Die Cut Stickers from Studio Calico
Alphabet Avenue Letter Stickers in Business Alpha from Arctic Frog

Also surprising in this round, how much layout I can get out of a single sheet of printed cardstock...the Memoir Cupboard piece was used on both layouts...Love when that happens!

Peace, ya'll!!

gorgeous layouts - both of them. I love the trees in the first, the photo strip in the second and the journalling strips. and my sort of autumn colours!

I think both work really well - sometimes it takes a while to feel comfortable with a new style. I'm always amazed at how far patterned paper will go aswell!

The colors on these pages really contribute to telling the stories - love those trees too!
