Fall family page 500wm

No time to scrap your autumn photos in a traditional

page?  No problem!  Today I’ll show you how you can create a

quick and easy pocket page using Ruby Rock-It’s lovely “Family” range and some

fun embellishments in short order - - - which will free you up to go out and

enjoy even more family fun!

  1. Select your photos.  We take an annual trip to our favorite

    farmstand every year to pick out our pumpkins, and naturally, I bring the

    camera along and take a ton of photos. 

    For this 2 x 3 horizontal pocket page, I selected 3 of my favorite photos

    that tell my story.

Step 1

  1. Arrange them in a eye-pleasing layout.  It might take a little re-arranging to get

    the right “flow”

  2. Select your patterned paper.  For this layout, I used a section of the

    border paper.  I cut two 4 x 6 pieces and

    arranged them with the green border at the top and bottom of my column and a

    segment of the floral border strip that would work for my title block.

  3. Now comes the fun part.  I like to think of each 4 x 6 block as a

    miniature canvas. I embellish and add meaningful words and journaling to each

    and in no time at all, have a pocket page with all the nostalgic warmth and

    colors of autumn.  Let’s break each block


Upper left block sized

  1. Upper Left – I did a little computer journaling

    and printed it directly on a tone on tone tapestry print patterned paper from

    the kit.  I added the bird chipboard and

    that was all it needed!

Title block sized

  1. The “Fall” block uses the “Family” letter

    stickers along with some chipboard pieces. 

    It was easy to line up the alphabet stickers using a line of text on the

    patterned paper!

Lower left block sized

  1. Lower Left – I cut the “Our Family” block and

    added it to the border print.  I used a

    length of ribbon from the Christmas ribbon pack, and bordered my block with

    it.  I added some kraft chipboard from

    the kraft accents set and voila – a finished block!
