Fall Frames Scrapbook Page

Gabriela SimsComment

Hi everyone, Gabriela here with a fun fall themed page. I used the Honeycomb collection and some Chalking inks to create this page. I started by cutting some shapes from the papers and then inking them.

I settled on a picture from a trip to the orchard and decided to journal right on the page, check out the video below.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you try some paper frames!

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a page using Club Q for this month with some help from my Xyron supplies. I made this page a banner page because of the adorable twine included in this month's Club Q. I also attended a quilt show this past weekend and decided to "hang" some of my favorites from the show on the banner. I started by choosing my 3 favorite pictures from the show and then built the page around that idea.


 Check out the video below to see how to put this page together.

I hope you enjoyed the video and you're inspired to make a banner page of your own. Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting.

So this was my first year going to Scrapbook Expo and I got my entire life from it! There were so many booths and activities! I had no idea what I was missing but now that I have seen the crafty promised land, I am already excited about next year. There is a Mega Make & Take on Thursday night and then an all day crop on Saturday and Sunday. The shopping floor is also open on Friday & Saturday and classes are offered on those two days as well.

The side with the vendors/exhibitors had lots of product but also lots of space to move around and be comfortable.

I went with one of my coworkers and it was also her first time, so we wanted to try everything so we did a Make & Take with Fun Stamper's Journey and Richard Garay was there! We made this super cute Christmas tag and even got a free stamp. 

This is cool and it only took about 15 minutes.
