Fall is here! Let’s take a trip to the Apple Orchard or maybe you want to go to the Pumpkin Patch! A little story about pumpkin patches…I started scrapbooking when our first grandchild was born. And boy did I love documenting everything about his growth. When he was 3 I wanted to take him to a pumpkin patch for the sole purpose of being able to do a photo shoot there and as a result create a scrapbook page. So whether you scrapbook or make cards, make sure you enjoy the fall weather and do something fun! Our Guest and Design Team has some fabulous project to share with the September kit “Orchards and Patches.” Please visit Scrapping for Less to get your kit.

Hello everyone! I’m guest designing today for Scrapping for Less and their Flavor of the Month September Card Kit! I love these kits–they are packed with crafty delights! I’m crafting up some fall time cards.
Included in this kit are 4 different collections, each including a stamp set and gorgeous pattern paper as well as other goodies. Below you’ll see collections 1 and 2.
Next you’ll see collections 3 and 4. I really love all the stamps sets in these collections.
You’ll also get some beautiful cardstock, and if you subscribe to the Banana Split level, you’ll get an extra packet of goodies.
Card #1: Partial Die Cut Sunflower Card (Collection 1)
To create this card I stamped my image and colored it in with Copic markers. Coloring on a colored cardstock makes your coloring go quick because you already have a base color. I cut out half of my image so it would overhang onto the pretty pattern paper. To cut it out I used my paper trimmer for the straight lines and my scissors.
Card #2: Fall is Sweeter with Honey Card Sketch (Collection 1)
I used one of the card sketches posted on the Scrapping for Less website to create this card. Each month they supplies you with these great sketches. I used more images from the stamp set included with collection 1. The pattern paper adds so much to this card.
Card #3: Autumn Gnome Card (Collection 2)
I adore this gnome in the stamp set from collection 2! I colored him in with colored pencils. To create the background behind him I used Distress Inks: Candied Apple, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed. To get a smooth blend make sure you use Bristol Smooth cardstock.
Card #4: Scarecrow Card (Collection 3)
Another fabulous stamp in this collection–love the scarecrow! I colored him in with colored pencils. I used three different pattern paper from this collection on this card.
Card #5: Happy Fall Shaker Card (Collection 4)
From one of the die cut shapes included in this collection, I created a fun shaker card. I used a few elements from the other collections to create this card such as the Happy Fall sentiment from collection 2 and the ribbon and buttons from collection 3. The sequins come from the goodie pack you get when you subscribe to the Banana Split level.
Here is my process video! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.
