Today our Biker Chicks wanted to show you how you can use or mix up any of our collections to create a Fall project. We know our fans have a lot of LYB lying around the scraproom, so we thought it would be fun to repurpose some of our older collections.
Living in Texas, back to school means football season! I have a million football and cheerleader photos from my kid's years in school. I thought it would be fun to mix up the Makin' the Grade collection with the Get Your Game On collection and I couldn't resist adding in a chipboard frame from the Escape collection.
The doodle stickers and flowers in the Makin' the Grade collection are some of my favorite parts of it. I decided to play up the doodling on my layout because it seems to be something that most teen girls do. It made cheer pictures seem like the right choice for pulling it all together
Tip: I made the flowers by just drawing them on white cardstock and then cutting them out. I LOVE the way that the Sakura Glaze pens work for doodling heavy. I also really love the deep black color. For the white doodles, I used the Sakura Souffle Pen. There are a few great choices for white pens, but I like the touch of texture that the Souffle Pens add.

When I think of Fall I not only think of the change in weather and colors I also think of family and FOOTBALL! Fall is a laid back time for us and we spend a lot of Saturdays and Sundays with family. For this layout I used the Saturdays collection to showcase this sweet photo of my friends little girl. She is sporting her Redskins jersey and playing with her Momma in the leaves. I love the colors of this line. They are classic and can mix well into a lot of different themes!

To make mixing and matching products between collections effortless, I just choose two or three colors as the main focus of my layout and then scan through the product choices picking out relevant embellishments that fit within those color choices. Along the way, I also choose muted and neutral tones that will work well with any color choices. It’s very easy to brighten up fall jewel tones with pops of white and soft pastels to end up with a fun and colorful fall-themed layout.

Can pink be a fall color? Why not, it's the color that a lot of kids wear and is only slightly lighter than red. That is what I thought when I pulled out these photos of my daughter from a trip to the park a couple weeks ago. I love all the green and brown hues in the Paradise collection, so why not add pink to the Fall palette? In fact, pink is the new red - lol.
