Layout by Maija Männistö

Hi friends, Maija Männistö here to share a fall layout made with Go the Scenic Route. With the lovely and bright colors of this collection it is easy to create a super fun fall layout! We recently had a family photoshoot, first time in fall and surrounded by colorful leaves. So this inspired me for this layout and I chose Paige's Large Leaf cut file to fill the whole page. I wanted to add lots of color and patterned papers to page so I made 2 inch strips of different patterned papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad and then cut them with fringe scissors. I love the dimensional look this brings!
I glued the strips onto a 12x12 paper and then adhered the paper with the cut out on top of it with foam tape. This gives the frills a little more room and makes the layout even more dimensional. And to really emphasize the leaf I chain stitched around it with white thread. I really do love adding stitching to my projects, you might have noticed that by now!
For embellishments, I placed them around the photo, leaving the focus on the leaf. I chose few pieces from the Chipboard Stickers and placed them behind the photo to get the photo mounted a bit higher. This allowed me to easily attach a Flag Paperclip on the photo. Then I added even more of the Chipboard Stickers - they might just be my favorite embellishments in this collection! I also added a journaling piece with the pretty circles from the Ephemera Die Cuts behind the photo. And to finish off this cluster of embellishments I added the "better together" sentiment from the Puffy Phrase Thickers.
For the title, I wanted a double meaning and went with the phrase "I keep on FALLing for you". A little pun never hurt anyone, right?! I emphasized the "FALL" by using the Foam Thickers and then hand lettered around it.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, have a lovely and crafty day!
