Scrapbook Sunday # 13 Vintage Leaves page

Can you feel it in the air yet? Does it feel like fall?

I thought I would create a page for you to try out using the new Vintage Leaves stamp set and the matching framelits. It's a great way to use up some of your scraps. That's what I did, I grabbed my scrap bin and pulled out any papers that I thought would make good autumn leaves. Then I stamped and die cut them and arranged them on the page. The top rectangle is for the title and the bottom matted rectangle is for the photo.

I used Chocolate Brown 12" x 12" paper as the base, everything else is from my scrap bin. I stamped most of the leaves with Crumb Cake ink. The green leaves were stamped with Mossy Meadow ink.
I used VersaMark to make a watermark with leaves on the title rectangle. The leaves are positioned a little differently than I had them arranged originally. It is just hard to fish out the bottom ones to glue down without disturbing the top ones. I decided that the next time I do something like this with a bunch of arranged pieces, I will take a photo with my phone and have it open next to me so that I can reposition the pieces like I had them placed before I started gluing.

What tricks do you use? I'd like to hear from you.

Have a blessed day,
