Two Fall Themed Pages

At stamp club on Friday the group got to choose between two different fall themed scrapbook pages. They both used the same layout and colors, just different stamp sets and embellishments. The first layout, shown below, used the beautiful set Harvest Home along with it's coordinating wheel Fall Harvest. This one is perfect for Thanksgiving photos.
My inspiration for this layout came from page 111 of the Idea Book & Catalog. The layout there used Bella Blossoms and totally different colors, but I was able to make it work with the stamps and accessories I wanted to use. Do you like the buttons on the bottom left? Here's a closer look:

I used my new Buttons Sizzlet die (available from SU!) and my Big Shot to make the buttons. To add extra dimension, each button was embossed with Glassy Glaze. I think this die is just the cutest and I know I'll be using it a lot - now I can have as many buttons as I need in whatever color I want!
The other layout they could choose was done with the Season of Friendship set. This one was a little simpler, in that there wasn't any watercoloring, but the trade off was that it did require some intricate cutting around the tree.
The oak leaf from Lovely As A Tree was stamped on the background of the Artichoke & Mustard panels instead of the Fall Harvest wheel. Three die cut oak leaves cut using the Big Shot replaced the buttons. (not sure of the name of the oak leaf die) The title was cut using a set of Sizzlets called Fruit Smoothie. The strip down the center was done using the same leaf stamp from Harvest Home used on the first layout, but the leaves were omitted by inking the vine only with the Chocolate Chip marker. Then the leaves that were used for the tree were added to the vine for a coordinating look.

So, which layout would you have chosen? My group was evenly divided - half chose the Harvest Home layout and the other half chose the Season of Friendship. Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your day!
