Harvest Memories - Embellish It - Play All Day NJ 2012

Here's a new take on a Thanksgiving layout we learned at the Play All Day event by Embellish It!  The collection is called Simple Stories Harvest Lane. We used the Harvest Lane flash cards to embellish this layout. The pictures are meant to be scattered among the flashcards. It creates a whimsical feeling. This layout will be used for baby pictures so it will provide a nice mix of hard (wood) and soft (baby). While it's not the traditonal cute turkey embellished layout, I think it will work well.

We created the "fall" embellishment by layering hand cut letter banner pieces and scraps. It's a great way to use those small pieces of cardstock that you just can't fathom throwing away. I don't know about you, but I've got plenty!

Lastly, a little distressing goes a long way. We ripped and inked the lined paper flash cards to create a ripped notebook page look. What a cute way to highlight that oh so important journaling!



  1. I love this rustic look...taking us "back in the day" when life wasn't so complicated. This class sounds like so much fun! Thanks for sharing what you learned with us!

    1. Thanks Michele! I'll continue to do so as I go to make n takes and classes. Glad you enjoyed it! xxx
