We have more amazing projects to share today. Arlene Cuevas uses the Art-C Groove Tool to make the most incredible Fall home decor piece. Then, Brit Sviggum shares a brilliant pocket scrapbooking idea with us today. We are so inspired by all the fall magic happening on our blog this week!
"I created this altered printers tray featuring Graphic 45’s Rare Oddities paper collection. I used the Art-C Groove tool to sand down and distress the edges of the printers tray, ink the papers, and smooth the edges of the chipboard pieces. It’s a very nifty tool, especially for artists who have pain in their hands/fingers from repetitive motions like painting, inking and sanding. The Groove tool certainly makes distressing a lot easier and faster!" ~Arlene

Brit shows you a great way to use our fall-themed papers even if you don't celebrate Halloween! We love this pocket scrapbooking page.
"I am not used to celebrate Halloween here where I live. But I love the Halloween papers and embellishment, so it was nice to decorate this pocket page with some small cut outs and Rare Oddities cards. I wanted this page to be clean and simple, and to show people how little you need to decorate the cards to make a nice page. I work in a photo store where we sell some scrapbooking supplies. And we see that people who are used to just put their photos into normal pocket albums, finds the pocket scrapping concept really interesting. They see how little they need to make their albums more attractive. So the Ephemera cards from Graphic45 is great to get started with Pocket scrapping. You can use the decorated sides of the cards, or turn them around(like I did), and use the more simple side." ~Brit
