Fall in a Small Town Layout

The Fiskars Fuse Creativity System® allows any crafter to pass a 12” x 12” sheet of scrapbooking paper through the machine, with a Design Set placed anywhere on the paper. This creative technique gives endless ideas for your scrapbooking layout designs.  This Fall in a Small Town layout, for example has a tree bark embossment on the paper, making it perfect for sweet fall layout.  This is a great technique to use for wedding and baby scrapbooks, and can even be used for making your own invitations.

  • Fuse Creativity System® Starter Set
  • Medium Design Set 101880 - Tag
  • Medium Design Set 101890 - Curvy Square
  • Medium Design Set 101080 - Leaf
  • Alphabet stickers – American Crafts/Glitz Design/Heidi Swapp

  1. Choose a sheet of cardstock for your background paper. Using the spray ink and stencil, spray a pattern onto the background paper. Let it dry fully.
  2. Arrange a Design Set onto your cardstock where desired and pass the paper through the machine. (I chose to use the Leaf Design Set in my layout.) Then adhere a coordinating patterned paper to the back of your cardstock base, so the pattern shows through the negative space of your shape that was cut from the cardstock.

  3. Arrange your photos near the cutout shape on the cardstock. Layer with the Tag and Curvy Square die cuts also created by the Fuse. To give your layout a little more texture, you can use different mediums when creating die cuts with the Fuse. The Curvy Square die cut was created by passing a piece of acetate through the machine; this adds a bit of creativity and some different layers to your scrapbooking layout design.

  4. Arrange your paper embellishments as shown in the photo.  Remember when you die cut a shape out of your original cardstock base? You can use that shape as part of the arrangement on your scrapbooking layout, so that you’re highlighting both the negative space and the shape itself. Use foam dots to adhere the leaf for added dimension.

  5. Add your title with alphabet stickers. Arrange any other embellishments as you see needed to complete your scrapbooking layout. Then you’re finished!
