Today we say goodbye to guest designer Ingunn Markiewicz, but not until she shares one more pocket page spread with us! You’ve seen her share beautiful pockets from an autumn family hike and document Halloween party fun, and today she is sharing a well-loved fall tradition in pockets! Perhaps your family shares in this tradition, too? Let’s take a look!
October is coming to an end, as evidenced by the thick blanket of soggy leaves I keep slipping on outside, and I’ve really enjoyed bundling up inside while listening to the rain and making my Elle’s Studio projects! I’m so thankful that I have a hobby that keeps me going through the cold and wet months of the year. For my final project, I wanted to document the most autumny of autumnal events – going to the pumpkin patch! I know it’s a cliche, but the whole family just loves it. It’s only a matter of time before we go all in wearing matching plaid shirts and clutching pumpkin spice lattes.
I chose my favorite of the photos and printed it at 6″ x 8″, then laid the adorable pumpkin Halloween Puffy Stickers on top to see how they would fit. They didn’t really show up well on top of the busy background right where all our shoes were, so I decided to use my trusty circle punch to create a background for the stickers. I cut out a circle, adhered a piece of vellum to the back, and then arranged my pumpkins and the orange banner from the Autumn Puffy Stickers on top.
I decided to do the same thing to the top of the page as a repeated element, then combined two of the Autumn Puffy Stickers to say “fall tradition” for my title.
I printed the rest of my photos to fit a 9″ x 12″ divided page protector, then ran the adorable pumpkin journaling tag from the Halloween Journaling Tags through my printer. I love the look of typewritten journaling, so I tried to recreate that look here by starting my lines in different random places.
I added more puffy phrase stickers to the negative space in three photos to finish the spread. I love how this one turned out: it is clean, simple, and focused on the photos, just the way I like it!
Thank you so much for letting me share my projects with you this month!
My name is Ingunn and I was born and raised in beautiful Norway, but now live in the equally beautiful Washington with my husband, two little girls, and our Italian greyhound. I love hiking and running in the mountains and then coming back home to relive those memories through scrapbooking! This hobby is incredibly therapeutic for me. I’m on the Ali Edwards Creative Team and love to focus on big photos, journaling with an overload of feels, and simple design. I mostly share my stuff over on my Instagram account!
