Around The World On Wednesday Blog Hop...The World Around Us....


Hey Hey Stampers!  Happy Wednesday!

Today I am hopping around the world with a FABULOUS bunch of stampers!  

Our theme this month is "The World Around You"  

I could have taken this in so many different directions, but no matter where I look now all I see is gorgeous fall colors and lots of leaves.   So....that is how my scrapbook layout was created!  

I have been on a 8 1/2 x 11 inch kick lately and I am finding that I love creating this size layout!  And it gives me ALL of the Stampin' Up! card stock colors to use in my layouts!

I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock and doodled a squiggle/dot border with a black Stampin' Write marker. 

Then I grabbed my scrap bin and chose some fall colored scraps- Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow, Real Red and Cajun Craze.  I stamped some leaves from the Gather Together stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating dies.  

To add some more color I grabbed my Camouflage stamp and stamped it in Mossy Meadow.  Then I moved it slightly and I restamped it in Cherry Cobbler.  I again moved it slightly and stamped in Crushed Curry.  I LOVE how it turned out and it will be a great mat for a fall photo! 

The title was from the Gather Together set and  was stamped in Cherry Cobbler
