thursday...AWDML December 1 Reveal- Bella BLVD (1/4)

December is officially here and today here in Kissimmee, FL we woke up to 60 degrees INSIDE the house and 51 degrees outside! So I'll be staying in today in my pjs and scrap my day away :)

Since today is the 1st, it  means that we have two new Featured Manufacturers over at A Walk Down Memory Lane! This month's featured manufacturers are Bella BLVD and Stamping Scrapping (a stamping company whose stamps that match the Spellbinders Nestabilities!). This means that this whole month these two manufactures' products are 25% off over at the AWDML store!

Today I want to share a fall layout with you since I came back from my uncle's house in Gainesville, GA and it was my first time seeing Fall! I loved all the beautiful colors and falling leaves! I have a feeling that you will be seeing a lot of Fall pictures in the next few weeks!

cardstock: Bazzill;
patterned paper: Bella Blvd Tail Waggers & Cat Naps (Treats), Bella Blvd Finally Fall (Borders), Basic Grey Origins;
letter stickers: American crafts Thickers (Giggles);
ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Vintage Photo, Wild Honey);
pens: American Crafts Percision Pen (Black);
stamps: Heartfelt Creations Flora Grande 2 Precut Set;
tools: Cuttlebug Machine, Pazzles Inspiration Machine, Provo Craft 2x6 dies leaves & netting, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals, Spellbinders Foliage die, Tim Holtz Paper Distresser,
other: skeleton leaves, gala glitz (brown), twigs, sewing machine

I used a mix of pattern papers from Bella BLVD's Finally Fall and Tail Wagers & Cat Naps for this layout. I took these pictures of my dog up in my uncle's backyard. He was sooooo curious about all the leaves since he has never seen them before either! he would run around in then and sniff everything!

This layout is loosely based on Allison Davis's One-Page Sketch #13 which can be found on her sketch blog-Sketch Support.

Of course, everything is handmade by me-and mother nature! I used a few twigs on my layout!

I made the flowers using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals dies and Heartfelt Creations stamps. I added a few Spellbinders leaves and skeleton leaves that I had in my stash from when I first started scraping. I also designed and made the journaling box with my Pazzles Inspiration.

The real focal point in the sketch were the banner which I incorporated in my layout as well. I used twigs from outside to make these really cute banners. I added a few paper and skeleton leaves and that's it! I just love this area in the layout!

Another close up of handmade and skeleton leaves. They add such a touch of Fall to the layout!
