I know it is already December but we still want to share these beautiful creations by our November Guest Designer ~ Melanie Faber.
She choose to use the great collection from ECHO PARK PAPER - REFLECTIONS ~ FALL
Here is her first contribution. We love the simplicity of this layout. We thought it was great that she dug deep, deep DEEP into her scrap stash and pulled out some SCRAPWORKS chipboard leaves, that match perfectly.

OK CHECK OUT THAT PIE!!!!
While you drool, take a look at the simple details on this 12x12 by Marlene. We love how she tore the wood grain paper between each "board" so that it gives it barn board feel and her photos are totally delectable!
HMMMMMMMM maybe she will share her recipe?

Marlene is mixing it up on this 12x12 layout. I don't know how she does it but she has used many companies + the Fall Fever Collection and jumbled them all together to create a wonderful page. Don't you feel like you are heading down the road with her?

Bridgette had a great idea with her Fall Fever Kit... A MINI ALBUM
Her mini album is a simple construction. She cut her 2 pieces of 12"x12" cardstock in half and folded them in half. She adhered each one to the next, leaving a couple open at the top for tags. She wrapped ribbon on the "binding" and layered chip board on the front and back. She added coloured cardstock, patterned paper, stickers, photos & fibers ~ VOILA! FALL FEVER MINI ALBUM.

Marlene's first creation with the Fall Fever Kit is an Easel Card with a twist.
She cut an oval in the front of her card and added vellum (a sheer paper) which she stamped with a black owl. The "Simply Thankful" square holds the card front in an upright position. The genius part of this card is the battery operated candle inside it.

We gave our Design Team a challenge - Create something in your own style with this product: Fall Fever by Echo Park
We all love fall and this collection boasts papers with Trees, Leaves, Wood Grain, Stripes and Owls to boot. Let's Check out what our Design Team came up with.
Leanne's up first with a Vintage Halloween Page.
In true Leanne style, she used small pieces of paper to highlight her photo. She used vellum, punched circles, washi tape, twine and a tin pin. Her layout is very symmetrical and balanced, showing both positive and negative space. She found some rubons, did some distressing, stitching and paint splattering to create a fab page.
