A Walk Down Harvest Lane

Hello, scrappy friends!
I'm happy to be sharing today over at 
SIMPLE STORIES BLOG
This week's theme is Harvest Lane, which is one
of their newest papercrafting collections.

Here is a layout featuring photos that I took at our town's Octoberfest,
 held every year on the first Saturday of the month.  
 Of course, machine-stitching goes hand-in-hand with the 
cozy, homespun feel of Harvest Lane.  I also added paper flowers,
 a strip of velvet ric-rac and jute-stitched buttons from my stash. 
 By simply cutting strips of patterned papers I created a colorful mat for my photos!

Clustering different stickers along with journal strips, makes layout-creating easy and fun. 
 Keeping dimension in mind, I use both thin and thick foam
 dots/tape in stacking the various elements.

 I wanted a bit of a 'lift' to the leaf stickers, so I brushed on a 
little baby powder to the areas that I didn't want to stick :)

To me, Simple Stories Flash Cards were made for cardmakers!
 Just trim out your favorite design, mat it with a couple of papers and embellish just a smidge...
 For this card, I took two different journaling cards and trimmed them
 from their rectangular size to instead showoff the contour of their trendy scrolls.
  Again, I layered the different pieces with various thicknesses of foam dots.  

I had a couple of felt apples in my stash and thought they would match perfectly with the theme.
  After attaching two cardstock stickers together, I glued them to the apple fronts with fabric glue.
 I really like the way it turned out...it's happy and makes me SMILE :)
