Playing in the Leaves Scrapbook Page

This post is for a playing in the leaves scrapbook page about my daughter last fall.  It also serves as another tutorial on creating scrapbook  pages in Design Space.

Playing in the leaves is a common theme for Fall scrapbook pages.  I hope to show you the versatility of Design Space when creating pages.  You can do cutouts on the top page that show through to the bottom page color, cutouts for your pictures, write on the page, and make your own embellishments.

What You Need:
        • Download File
        • 2 sheets of 12 X 12 cardstock
        • tape and liquid glue
        • acid free tape (Painters Tape)
        • various scraps of cardstock
        • pictures
Paper Selection
 One of the 12 X 12 cardstock sheets can be patterned paper but not both.  It is just too confusing. One of the 12 X 12 cardstock sheets can be patterned paper but not both.  It is just too confusing.   Other than that there aren’t any rules about the paper.  Choose what you want.
Cutting the Paper

The hole size can be changed if you are more experienced with Design Space.  If you want to do this and aren’t sure how, email me and I will send you instructions.

Cricut will write the words on each page.  I used a black marker.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  Learn the trick.

Design Space cuts the top page to 11.5 X 11.5 inches, making a 1/4 inch border around the whole page.

  • Edit

Before you glue the top page to the bottom page, attach the pictures where and how you want them to the back of the top sheet with painters tape.

Now you can attach the two pages together with the top page centered on the bottom page.  Notice how the leaf cutouts on the top and bottom show the back color. Glue the embellishments to the top page where you want them.

 Your Playing in the Leaves Scrapbook Page is finished.
