This scrapbook page is perfect for fall, Halloween, or Thanksgving scrapbooking. It features hand-made fall felt leaves embellishments that you can make yourself for pennies. The journaling has all been printed using a Brother P-touch label maker which makes adding text to your scrapbook pages quick and simple. The scrapbook pages itself is actually framed on all four sides by creating a layered scrapbook page background. The first 12x12 inch sheet of scrapbook paper (the green patterned paper shown here) is the primary background of the page. However, it is almost completely covered by the red paper. The red paper has been trimmed 3/4 of an inch on the top and one side, allowing us to center the red paper nicely on the green. For added interest, I also rounded the corners of the red sheet. For step by step instructions, including measurements for this layout be sure to read Creating a Scrapbook Page from a Sketch - Fall Felt Leaves Layout.
