Scrapbook Sunday: November Messy Box

Scrapbook Sunday November Messy Box (abeautifulmess.com)It FINALLY feels like fall in Phoenix, and I'm so happy! I always look forward to this time of year. The cooler weather, my mom's pumpkin rolls, family game nights and peppermint mochas have me dreaming about November all year round. Sometimes it feels like it flies by too quickly. Documenting my memories helps me slow down and enjoy all the weather, food, and traditions this time of year brings. The November Messy Box is perfect for this time of year. It is so pretty! Honestly, I had a hard time using this kit, because I just wanted to save all the pretty paper! All the neutral colors are great because they will match almost any holiday decor theme that might be captured in your photographs. It's such a warm and cozy kit to document all your happy November memories.

I thought it would be fun to create a pattern out of the 3 x 3 cards. My other favorite thing about this kit is the puffy stickers. I used the 3 x 3 pocket page and created an alternating pattern of a photo, then journaling card, then a photo to fill up the entire page. I added one puffy sticker to each paper so the page reads like a list of my favorite things this season.

My kit came with the mint alphabet letters and the contrast of the bright with the neutrals looks so good. It's so fun to play with these color combinations!

It's great to document the big holidays, but I also love documenting all the little moments that make this time of year so special. What traditions are you looking forward to scrapbooking this month? –Laura

  • Living in Asia, your Scrapbook Sunday is always my Monday morning inspiration while sipping my tea. Can’t believe it’s almost a year since I’ve been following you, & haven’t got around to Typing in my comments (that play in my mind!) and also the “will comment once my blog is well established” syndrome! One of my biggest take aways is how you simplify a layout, with more fotos and less fuss on embellishments -something that hinders my completing a page. Your tutorials are simple and easy to follow, and I like that you are not afraid to add a bit of bling too-something I need to balance with my Indian pages. And although seasons don’t really change in my tropical climate, I can still take away inspiration from your season-inspired boxes..

  • Great job Laura! I love the book-themed stamp too, please could you tell us where you got it from? Thank you! 🙂
