I Smell Autumn Coming

I've got a couple of projects to share with in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, all using I Smell Autumn Coming by Louise Franks Designs.  Before we get to the hybrid fun I wanted to share the pages I've scrapped with them.  The first one I did for the November Online Crop hosted by my friend Maryanne.  The challenge was to scraplift a layout she shared on BlogFrog and I chose to do mine digitally. I also used it for the On a Pedestal Challenge over at Scrapping Fairytales, where Louise sells her kits.  It uses both the kit and the word art kit.
Speaking of the kit, here are the previews. It contains: 17 patterned and plain papers, 2 paper birds, 4 paper hearts, 1 ribbon/bow, 3 flowers, 5 frames, 1 index card, 3 journal boxes, 2 photo corners, 1 photo overlay, 1 pin wheel, 3 buttons, 4 buttons with ties, 1 ribbon tie, 1 staple, 1 stitched circle, 1 stitching, 1 tag and 2 twisted ribbons.  So much digiscrapping yumminess!!!
This time Louise created some extra mini kits, like these word clusters.   Aren't they gorgeous!  They're my favorite kit.  These six beautifully layered word arts that are perfect for titles.  They give any project the perfect finishing touch with no effort on your part.
I also like how Louise made two different alphabets, both add ons like the word art.  This is such a nice way for Louise to keep the cost down for her fans.  We can each pick and choose the extras we want.  The kraft colored alpha is such a great multi-use alpha that will work with many different kinds of kits.  The second alpha coordinates perfectly with I Smell Autumn Coming and features my favorite paper from the kit, one with pretty little flowers on it.
She's also released a template and a quick page made with the template.  Isn't it pretty?  I think it's a great example of how beautifully different elements of the kit works together. 

I'll leave you with the second layout I did with I Smell Autumn Coming.  This time it's of pictures from our annual trip to our local pumpkin patch.  I just love going there every year, it's such a colorful time of year and some of my favorite family photos are always from this farm.  I picked this template from my stash because it had so many great layers for clipping several of the papers.  Love how all the colors work together.  Did you notice the second word art cluster I used?

I have two hybrid projects to share on Monday and Tuesday, I hope you'll come back and check them out!

Loved seeing what you created with this kit Katie! The layout is absolutely beautiful and I agree with MaryAnne that that bench is great. I would love one like that in my garden!
