Unique Ways to Use a Fall Wreath on a Scrapbook Page

As part of the {Not} Just for Boys community, I embraced this month’s challenge to experiment with something new. I decided to take a fresh approach to a masculine autumn layout and challenged myself to use a wreath cut file in a unique way. In this video tutorial, I’ll demonstrate how I incorporated the wreath cardstock cut into a fun fall layout and I will share some of my favorite techniques that you can apply to your future projects.

This photo represents a special moment between two brothers playing in the leaves, perfectly complemented by the NJFB November Rain kit’s seasonal elements. The Paper Rose patterns, Simple Stories pocket cards, and American Crafts ephemera were the perfect choice to highlight this heartwarming photo of children enjoying the autumn season.

To take on this month’s challenge, I decided to experiment with something different. Normally, I either back my cut files with patterns or use them as a whole. This time, I took the wreath, sliced it in half, and incorporated it as a background element.

Interested in learning how I cut Fall Cardstock in half and layered various elements to create balance? Check out my tutorial for a step-by-step guide.

Rather than adding patterns behind the charming fall icons, I opted to layer leaves, florals, and phrases over the wreath. While I frequently layer elements over my cardstock wreaths, those are backed with patterned paper, and the elements blend together effortlessly.

It was a bit challenging to layer random elements over an unbacked wreath because it appeared more random.

Using Simple Stores 3×4 card elements, I cut out various pumpkin and floral designs to layer over the wreath. These larger embellishments create bold clusters that serve as anchors on my page.

To enhance the autumnal feel of the photo, I added small leaves around the photo, image, and throughout the page. These were cut from a playful stripes pattern in the kit using dies from my collection.

After incorporating the die-cut leaves and fussy-cut Simple Stories elements, I added a few phrases, tags, and frames from the journalling pack to my project. These items complemented the other pieces on my page beautifully.

I enhanced the photo with a gold embossed tag that gives a space for hidden journaling. To complement this, add a small phrase with gold lettering below the photo. I brought in more of the gold by incorporating the square frames and a small heart on my page. This gave it a more cohesive look.
