Scrapbook Club # 4

well hello, not a card today!  I love my scrapbook club!  It forces me to sit down and really do the things that I love to do and stay up to date on my kids books!!  This si special to me, and I know that one day these books will be special to my daughters!!  I love to share them with whoever will look at them!
This is the layout that I did for September.  I just love the new Wonderfall set with the coordinating bigz die (autumn accents)!  you can do so mcuh with the fabulous stamps and die!

I love love love this layout.  This is my favorite layout that I have made for my scrap club so far.  It is also the most work!!  ha ha ha..It is intense with all the sponging and tediousness of getting all the letters on!  But, I think the final product is soo worth the effort!  I just love the richness of the colours!  The colours are soo rich, and vivd, they are totally fall!  The orchard harvest product suite is such a beautiful product suite.  And I love how it coordinates with the autumn accents die so beautifully!  You could really go to town with sponging and make your leaves all sort of different colours!!
My other favorite thing about this layout is the title.  I don't even know how I came up with it, but I think it is soo adorable, and speaks volumes to how I feel about my kids!  It definately is more in love everyday! 
Another thing I love about this layout is the burlap.  I have never worked with burlap before, but I love it!  It is easy to work with!  It adds a beautiful texture to the layout and an extra dimension of fall!  I'm not sure how most people adhere burlap to cardsock.  But I decided on using crystal effects.  I frayed the edges to what I thought was a good amount (you can do as much or little as you want), and then I put some sticky strip on the back of the burlap strip and placed it on my cardstock where I wanted it.  Since I placed my burlap across two pages, I then separated the two segments, cutting at the edge of the cardstock.  Then, I put crystal effects on top of the burlap around the border of it and pushed it down so that it touched the cardstock also.  That way it would help adhere to cardstock and also prevent further fraying of the burlap!  The sticky strip was just insurance.  It is highly unlikely that it would fall off anyways, becuase it was also mostly covered, but I wanted to be sure!!
Anyways, thanks for checking me out again!!
