Pumpkin Spice Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Pumpkin Spice Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. 

If you have arrived here from Scrappy Chicks then you are in the right place. 

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s September Featured collection, Pumpkin Spice. 

I wanted to create a family inspired layout, and I found this photo of me with my Dad and sister on father's Day where my dress had very similar tones to the Pumpkin Spice collection- it must have been fate!

I started off by pairing Harbour, Paprika and Shortbread cardstock from the Pumpkin Spice Coordinating Cardstock pack, and then created a grid using the Pumpkin Spice Paper Packet to frame the 4x4 photo.

I used some of the cute stickers from the Pumpkin Spice Sticker Sheet to accent the layout and the sentiment, which I stamped in Harbour Ink using the Love Story Scrapbooking Stamp Set. I also used a zip strip behind the photos to anchor the grid to the base page.

Look at all these fun patterns and colours in this paper packet- it is such a beautiful collection!The stickers have some amazing sentiments too, and I added some thin strips of Harbour Glitter Paper that I had leftover from another project as my finishing touch.  

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Arty Maz.


  1. I really like how you created the grid around the photos, a really stylish layout.

  2. Such an attractive LO with a great choice of papers for your geometric design.
