Monthly Moments: September...

This month, the Monthly Moments products are all about fall...back-to-school, harvest, leaves falling, hayrides, football and autumn days. I've done a scrapbook layout and a pocket page with the Monthly Moments: September products. Here are some sneaks of the stamps, dies and pretty papers available on Sept. 15th at 10pm EST at Papertrey Ink.

On this 8.5 x 11" page, I used some of the Monthly Moments: September Journal Cards in the background.

Then a pocket was die cut with the new Monthly Moments: Journal Pocket 3 die to hold photos of Kati on her first day back to school this year. I used the lined stamp in the Monthly Moments: September stamps to stamp lines for the journaling.

The cute little chalkboard shapes were made with a die and chalkboard paint! I cut some Tremendous Tags out of thin chipboard and painted them with Martha Stewart Chalkboard paint. Found the paint at Michaels for $1.99. They dry quick and are hard like little chalkboards! So fun to make!

Then the Monthly Moments: September stamps and Tag-Its #6 stamps were used on the little chalkboards - stamped with white ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder to really make the white stand out. To create the "chalk" look, I dipped my finger in white stamping ink and rubbed it over the embossed sayings.

The book saying was stamped with the new Book Club stamp set coming out this month also. Kati loves to read, and I thought it would be cute to add this saying onto a back-to-school page!

The next one is a 2-pager/pocket style scrapbooking layout from our apple picking days when the girls were little. I used the Monthly Moments: September die and stamp set and the coordinating Journal Card Collection.


From the Journal Card Collection, I chose 3 of my favorite papers from the pack. They make it easy to do a quick page, just fill some of the pockets with these, some pockets with pictures, then embellish a bit if you want, and you're done!

Some of the little chalkboards were used on this layout too, using the same idea of stamping on them and embossing. The long, skinny photo was trimmed down to 2x7" from a 5x7" picture. The pocket was cut with Monthly Moments: Journal Pocket 3 to hold my journaling. I couldn't resist adding an apple and some sayings from Apple Prints ..."I love you to the core" and "I pick you" were perfect for this!
Washi tape always adds a little bit more pattern and interest to my pages. (I forgot to round the corners of the Fall card like the rest of the pages, will go back and do that.) Anyway, that's it! A quick and simple page.

Love your pages and you've given me some great ideas to use with my grandson's pocket pages. I love those little chalk board tags and plan to get M.S. Chalk board paint to go with my tag dies.
