I am ready for fall! I love these single pages from the Hawthorn kit. This layout is so perfect for your autumn pictures. The colors are great and will go with any fall colors. Especially wonderful are the background papers that look like cardboard. Such a great neutral! The pages are easy to do because there are 4 pages of die cuts on pop out pages. Supplies:
  1. Hawthorn Scrapbook kit
  2. Liquid Glass
  3. Fine Tip Applicator
  4. Tombow Adhesive
  5. Dual Tip Permanent Glue

I hope you love these layouts as much as I do! Get a head start on your fall pictures like the hay mazes and pumpkin fields. I can't wait!!



Close To My Heart's Hawthorn Scrapbook Kit is Perfect for Fall!!!

I am so ready for fall! 

Texas has had temps 10 degrees higher than normal and I want COOL weather! Making fall scrapbook pages and cards is reminding me that cooler winds will prevail. Bring them on!!

I love these single pages from the Hawthorn kit. One is Back to School and the other is fall. They are easy to do in part because there are 4 pages of die cuts on pop out pages. The other embellishments are from a 6 x 12 kraft chipboard sheet and a 12 x 12 sticker sheet. 

Supply List:

  1. Hawthorn Scrapbook kit 
  2. Liquid Glass 
  3. Fine Tip Applicator  
  4. Tombow Adhesive  
  5. Dual Tip Permanent Glue  
  6. Toffee Ink Pad
  7. Pebble Ink Pad

I love this Hawthorn kit.  I love the added detail that Close TO My Heart is using on the new kits. I hope you do too!
