Add Texture to Layouts with Ribbon

Hello everyone. Nicole here. Today I would like to share a fall layout with you! Fall is my favorite season! I love the cool, crisp air and I love to watch the leaves change colors! I took these photos a few years ago. I remember that morning like it happened yesterday. I went to take my dog for a walk and thought the trees were so pretty so I went back inside and grabbed my camera, took a few pictures and then rushed to work.

I really like the purple with the green and yellow. Notice how I tucked the ribbon under the cardstock to add a bit of texture to my layout? And I created a fun flower from ribbon and buttons.


  • Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper
  • Patterned paper: Glitz Design (green squares), Webster’s Pages (yellow chevrons)
  • Staples: Tim Holtz
  • Satin Pleats 379-15-47, Faux Suede Leaves XL09: May Arts
  • Buttons: Imaginisce (Lime), Jillibean Soup (Wooden)
  • Foam alphas: Queen & Co.
  • Decorative tape: Queen & Co.
  • Sentimental stamp: Catslife Press
  • Corner rounder: Creative Memories
