Autumn is Coming

I'm sorry it has taken me a week to get back to my blog. It's taking us longer than I thought to adjust to our new schedules :(. But here I am finally. While waiting at the rink while my daughter is practicing and being coached, I decided to make my wait time productive :). I brought my supplies with me and worked on another Flip Album. This time I used some retired Designer Series Paper that I hadn't used up. I try not to use retired stuff too much on my blog, but sometimes you just gotta use that stuff up! This can be done though, with the new autumn DSP (Autumn Spice- 120808) in the Holiday mini :D.
On the cover, I used a non-Stampin' Up! (gasp!!) die cut leaf. It was just the right size for my cover and I've had this die cut laying in my die cut box since before I became a Demo. It was time to use it :).
I made a pumpkin with one of the oval punches and stamped the pumpkin leaf with one of the stamps from the Falling Leaves stamp set. I stamped the word 'autumn' with my Schoolbook Serif alphabet and added some die cut flowers from the Birds and Blooms Sizzlits. The centers of the flowers have been embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.
I used the sentiment from Falling Leaves and the Word Window and Modern Label punches on the next page.
Here is the book opened up. Not quite done yet with embellishing it. I need to take it to the rink with me again, lol! On the inside flaps of the book in the photo below, I thought I would add more flower die cuts from Birds and Blooms.

So there ya' have it. I really love making these Flip Albums. They are just too awesome! You can fit a lot in them and they fold up to 6x6 square. You could make several in different themes and keep them in a basket on your coffee table. Great way to show off your photos :). Have a wonderful day today everyone!!!!
