Scrapbook Layouts featuring Autumn Meadows Designer Series Paper and the "Deal of the Week"

I went to a scrapbooking crop this weekend and had a wonderful time. I was able to have creative "me" time....something I have had very little of since our move back home this past summer.

As usual, I put off getting things ready to take to the crop until the very last minute. I found myself running around like a chicken with it's head cut off (don't you love Southern trying to decide which pictures, papers, embellishments and so on to take with me. I was getting quite frustrated, so I decided to do it a little different this time.

As you will notice, there are no pictures on my layout. I grabbed papers and embellishments that were appropriate for Fall and Thanksgiving and decided to just go with my creative flow. I didn't take a single picture with me to the crop.

This is the first time I have created a layout without choosing the pictures first, and I must say that I found it very liberating doing it this way. It gave me free reign to just be creative and not worry whether the pictures coordinate with everything.

I am sure once my Thanksgiving/Fall pictures are developed after the holidays that everything will match just fine.

The papers I used are from the Autumn Meadows Designer Series paper (Item #116769, $9.95) which can be found on page 13 of the Holiday Mini.

I absolutely love, love, love the colors in this paper!!

Okay, so here's a challenge for you....try creating a layout without pictures. I bet you will find that it gives you creative freedom too.

The beautiful Autumn Splendor stamp set (Item #116503, $20.95) coordinates so well with this paper. I did not use this stamp set on my layouts because I don't own it yet, but it is definitely on my wish list. Once I have it I will be using it on the additional Fall pages I will be making. I still have tons of paper left over after doing 4 layouts!

The paper and the stamp set are both featured in the Holiday Mini catalog on page 13. Don't wait too long to order though. All items featured in the Holiday Mini are only available for sale through January 4th.
