Gossamer Blue: Oktoberfest

Hello! Today I have one final layout to share with the October Gossamer Blue kits - this one is created just for the Gossamer Blue blog! This month I was excited to finally have a Silhouette Cameo in my arsenal of scrapbooking tools. I think that I will be reaching for it and over and over again to add fun cuts and texture to my pages. For this two-page layout I focused on an Oktoberfest event we went to last fall and all the fun activities we did as a family. We even had our photo taken for our local magazine!

I found a set of beautiful fall leaves in the Silhouette store and cut them out of white cardstock. I backed the leaves with bits of patterned paper and cards from the Life Pages kit.

I placed my title on one of the 4×6 Life Pages cards and embellished with Amy Tangerine photo corners and a Crate Paper wood veneer piece.

On the second page, I used more exclusive Life Pages cards to hold my photos as well as a card from Elle’s Studio.

Finally, when I am designing a two-page layout I tend to create an symmetrical design with elements that match on both pages. On the second page, I also cut the leaves with the Silhouette file and backed them with patterned paper.

I’ll be back next month with another two-page layout with the November Gossamer Blue kits!

Thanks for stopping by today! :)
