Hey, Creative Scrapbooker Fans, Katelyn Grosart here today. I’m excited to be back on the blog sharing with you a pretty fall themed wall hanging which was inspired by all of the leaves falling here on the west coast and the Fall Break collection by Carta BellaFall Break Collection by Carta Bella | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineFor the base of my project, I used the Fall Break Collection from Carta Bella as well as products from Emerald Creek Crafts, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Southern Ridge Trading Company, Ranger Ink and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to create my Wool Sweaters, Bonfires and Pumpkin Carvings Wall Hanging. Grab a cup of your favourite Fall beverage and I will walk you through on how you can recreate my wall hanging at home.
