Some of my favorite photos each year are from our visits to the local pumpkin patch. Even though we often have a long Indian Summer here in the South, it seems like it's officially Fall once the pumpkins are out.
Bella Blvd's Thankful line, which was included in the My Creative Scrapbook kit, was perfect for scrapbooking our pumpkin patch visit. The collection has this fun paper that features a variety of trees with pumpkins sitting underneath. Cuteness!
Pumpkins embellishments are really easy to make. I went old-school here and paper pieced them. I started by roughly sketching two pumpkins - one tall, one fat - on kraft paper to use as my base. I cut out the kraft shapes then traced them onto patterned paper.
I added a little machine stitching around the edges, then embellished the pumpkins with stickers, button and twine.
To curl the twine, I used glue to wet it, then wrapped the twine around a straw to dry. Once dry, I uncurled the twine from the straw. The twine "remembers" the shape and springs back into a curlicue. I used Trendy Twine here in Holly. I have a tutorial on how to curl twine here.
