How to Create a Grid Style Fall Scrapbook Page

Hello~! I am excited that it’s September! I love fall and its beautiful colors 🙂 I picked out Bella Blvd’s Hello Autumn Collection as the backdrop to my scrapbook page of my mother/daughter outing in Japan last year, using some of my favorite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products.

Let’s start with the background. From the smallest mat, cut: 8¾ x 9″ Autumn Floral patterned paper, 9⅛ x 9¼”, Crushed Olive cardstock and 10⅜ x 10½” Borders Hello Autumn (Side B) patterned paper. Layer all with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips and place on top of 12 x 12″ Time To Rake patterned paper.

Now for the wreath, start with the base. Nest Grand Circles Die #1 (the smallest size die is #1) and Classic Circles LG Die #7 together, secure with washi tape and place over thin chipboard. Cut through a manual die cutting machine. Secure twine end with DODZ™ – Small and start wrapping 4½ yards of twine to cover the chipboard ring. At the end, use another DODZ™ – Small to secure and trim/tuck in the excess twine into the ring.

Cut Oak Flourish die with green, brown and while cardstock. Trim off the leaves from the white cardstock die cut. Color with Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® – Chocolate, Ice Chai, Lemon Lemon, Red Cherry, Tangerine and Cinnamon sticks. I colored on a non-stick craft sheet, spray water and drag the die cuts around for the desired look. After they dry, assemble the wreath using a combination of 3D Foam Squares – Black, Small and Adhesive Sheets – 4 x 6″.

Place the 4 x 4″ square pictures and embellished wreath (I secured the wreath with DODZ™ – 3D) on the scrapbook page. Then add sticker letters to spell “FALL” in the wreath. Add Creative Photo Corners – Kraft as an accent verses as a functional item for the finishing touch.
