A Day at the Patch

Its always so much fun watching the kids run around the pumpkin patch in search of their ideal pumpkin so I made a pumpkin scrapbook for the event. The pumpkin shape is from The Cutting Cafe and is called A day at the patch. It's one of the 99 cents specials so you can't go wrong there. Printed as is, it measures approximately 5 X 6.5 inches which makes it great for layouts. Of course it can be re-sized to fit your needs. I paired it up with a newly released set called Autumn Days. The sentiment is actually two circle sentiments nestled in each other. Perfect fit too. I actually added an acetate layer and added the sentiment that way so I can make a pumpkin shaped scrapbook out of it. To make the pages I removed the inside lines of the pumpkin in Photoshop so I just had a pumpkin outline and kept it the same size so it would be seamless from the front. Since the pumpkin shape is so large it was a breeze to cut out by hand.




Stamps: The Cutting Cafe - Autumn Days, A day at the patch
Paper: White, SU Wild Wasabi DP, We R Memory Keepers DP
Accessories: Copics, Acetate Sheet, Spellbinders, 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch
