As Autumn approaches, we are slowly preparing for Halloween and decorating our home with lots of fall decor. This is one of my favorite times of the year, next is Spring. I love the cool breeze, the bright orange and deep red leaves on the trees and of course, stocking up on candy for my little ones.
Like most of you, our favorite tradition is spending an afternoon dedicated to carving all the pumpkins we've collected in the past weeks. The kids enjoy playing with all the mushy stuff inside while the husband and I try to carve a creative face on the bigger pumpkins. At the end of the carving, all the pumpkin seeds are cleaned and then roasted for snacking while watching a fun family Halloween movie.
My layout, Pumpkin Carving, uses the new Pumpkin Border Maker Cartridge and the Rickety Fence Border Maker Cartridge. I created a bit of an ombre affect using the Yellow Cardstock, Gold Cardstock and Carrot Cardstock. I love the affect it gives to the design of the page and adds a nice balance with the photos. I also used the Hocus Pocus Stack Pack.
I am utterly and completely in love with these limited edition new tools. They work perfect for every fall or Halloween inspired project from scrapbooking to decorating candles being displayed in your home.
Thanks so much for letting me share my creativity and hope you were inspired in getting those favorite fall and Halloween photos.
