Outfit to Scrapbook: Autumnal Prep with Nora Griffin

For this month’s Outfit to Scrapbook feature, I have with me Nora Griffin, from Just Make Stuff. She selected this preppy, Autumnal outfit from Gal Meets Glam to use as a jumping point for our scrapbook pages. I love the simple, sophisticated style, and definitely can get behind a Fall color scheme! Check out our creations below, and if you play along, please link your projects in the comments section below! We’d love to take a look!

Nora kept her page really simple, drawing inspiration from the color palette and traditional patterns of the outfit she chose. For the patterns, Nora stamped a grid onto a manilla tag and made a cute little bunting for her page with red striped paper and twine. I really love the Americana feel of her design, and it works great with her subject matter!

For my page, I grabbed a few elements inspired by the featured outfit, focusing my arrangement around a big painted splotch of red. Strips of striped and plaid patterned paper bring in the pattern we see from the outfit, but keeping everything simple on a neutral background.  For that traditional feel, I kept my photos black and white and used a simple, timeless font for my title.

    both are awesome pages. i’ve been moving toward more photos + words with little of anything else but i especially love the first one with the penants, stamping, minimalist style – yet very chic. thanks for your awesome inspiration.

    I’m delurking, I guess.

    These are some of my favorite posts you do. The red and brown and stripes with plaid is quite charming.

    I really enjoy watching someone else’s creative process and I love watching these pages come together. I’m not so good with paper crafting, myself, so I like to live vicariously. :)
