Crafters' Collab: Blocktober

Crafters' Collab: Blocktober

Welcome to the inaugural challenge for the Fall Crafters' Collab that Tracey Fox and I are hosting! We're so excited to get this kicked off! 

Tracey and I are two crafty friends who share a mutual love of Fall! So much so that we decided to collaborate and create a Fall inspired crafters' challenge. One that you can join as well! Every Thursday in the month of October, we will issue a challenge--we have a product, story, photography and design challenge, so something for everyone! All who play along will be entered into the drawing for 1 of 2 scrappy prizes. We think it's going to be fun and festive and an awesome way to celebrate our favorite season!

The first challenge is design inspired. We're calling it the Blocktober Challenge! To participate, create a paper project with a grid incorporated in it!

My take on the challenge includes a photo grid. It also features inspiration from the Fall Festive Pinterest board Tracey and I put together. In fact, all of the photos I used on this page came directly from the board!

Each of our challenges will encourage you to incorporate this inspiration into your projects. We've already been so inspired by the board so we know you will be too! You'll notice that nothing pinned is an actual scrapbook project. That's because we want to look for inspiration outside of the industry. And there's nothing like gorgeous photos, fun typography, catchy sayings, and interesting color combos to make you want to dig into your paper supplies and create something new!

I used this photo as the basis for my page. I loved the circle motif! I also had to drop in my favorite Anne of Green Gables quote. This was entirely a stash project. I used bits of the new Oakley Avenue collection from Pretty Little Studio. Also some Shimelle Go Now Go, and sequins, enamel dots, brads, buttons and wound veneer from my stash! This page just makes me so happy =)
