Guest Designer at The Memory Nest

I have been asked by Leslie from The Memory Nest to be a guest designer this month's challenge and what a honour it is and I would like to thank her for this opportunity. The theme is Autumn or Halloween so dig out those photos and play along at The Memory Nest.

My  layout is an autumn layout and was made during the beginning of fall when the air becomes fresher and everything is turning from green and bright to rusts and earthy tones. the photo is of
the cannel that flows through the town I live in and as I walked past it one sunny September afternoon I took this shot.

 I used American Crafts Earth Tones cardstock with Dear Lizzy Lucky charm and Create Paper Pink Plum papers. all these products compliment each other really well and I love the autumn tones of these papers. I've discovered AC Thickers I love them, American Crafts where have you been all my life!!.

I've been experimenting with stencils and used the ivy to frame my photo using gesso and acrylic paint. the die cuts are made using Tim Holtz Autumn Gatherings decorative die cutter and the mini rosette die cutter and Bare Basics Christmas Chipboard Shapes from Papermania.


  1. Great layout and use of the colors. So happy to have you as a guest designer.

  2. Such a great LO! Love your take on the challenge!
