Here is another layout that the fair judge refused to look at… I thought it was unique and would be different from the everyday pastel baby pages.  It would be perfect for a fall picture or first pumpkin picture.  My grandpa always used to call me Pumpkin Head… so, it all came together from there.

12 x 12 solid brown card stock
11.5” x 11.5” printed orange cardstock
6.75” x 3.75” solid medium orange card stock
3.25” x 3.25” solid medium orange card stock, cut 2
3.5” x 3.5” solid brown card stock, cut 2
3.75” x 3.75” solid light orange card stock, cut 2
5.25” x 7.25” solid medium orange card stock, cut 1
5.5” x 7.5” solid brown card stock, cut 1
5.75” x 7.75” solid light orange card stock, cut 1
1-1/4 inch card stock letters, spelling Pumpkin Head
3 various scraps of coordinating Fall paper
Oval punch
3 miniature clothes pins
3 white brads
3 flowers
Dark orange ink pad
Destresser tool
6 jewels
Paper cutter
Glue dots
Dimensional dots
*This seems like a lot of supplies, but I was able to get all the “smaller” cuts out of a single sheet of 12 x 12” paper*
  • Distress the edges of the 12 x 12” brown card stock, the 11.5” x 11.5” printed orange card stock, and the 6.75” x 3.75” solid orange rectangle.
  • Punch three ovals each from 2 different coordinating scraps (for a total of 6 ovals) and 5 ovals from the last piece of scrap
  • Ink all edges (including base pages)
  • Adhere mats together, creating a layered mat for a 5×7” picture and a layered mat for two 3 x 3” pictures.
  • Layer and glue ovals to create pumpkins, as shown above.
  • Adhere mats to page
  • Adhere pictures
  • Affix clothespins on pumpkins to be stems; adhere to page as shown using dimensional dots
  • Ink brads, allow to dry
  • Assemble flowers, using brads as center; adhere to page using glue dots.
  • Using a very small amount of adhesive (basically, a “smidgen”) adhere letters to orange rectangle.
  • Using sponge, lightly dab dark orange ink over letters to create a “reversed” look.
  • Remove letters and rub off any remaining adhesive
  • Attach title to page using dimensional dots; adhere gems to bottom left and right corners.
