It is time to scrapbook all those fabulous pumpkin patch photos. This quick and easy layout takes less than 30 minutes.
Added bonus: the cute gnome hanging out in the pumpkins.
Cut the overlay file, add some fun pattern papers from your stash, get those photos put on it, and quicker than you can say “pumpkin spice” you will have one more scrapbook layout finished.
Materials Needed for Pumpkin Patch Layout:
- Gnome pumpkin patch SVG scrapbook cut file

Directions for Gnome Pumpkin Patch Overlay
Step 1: Gather Your Materials Collect all the materials you’ll need for this project, including scrapbooking papers, the gnome pumpkin patch SVG file, adhesive, foam dots, scissors, and any optional embellishments.
Step 2: Prepare the SVG File Upload the gnome pumpkin patch SVG file into your cutting machine’s software. Resize the file if needed to fit your desired project size. (if your cutting software needs a different file format, there are also PNG files included).
Step 3: Cut the Design Cut the gnome pumpkin patch design from the selected scrapbooking papers using your cutting machine. Use scraps of cardstock for the smaller cuts.
Step 4: Arrange and Glue Lay out the cut pieces on your chosen background paper. Arrange the elements to mimic a pumpkin patch scene, placing the pumpkins on a piece of pattern paper or a cardstock “hill”, the gnome behind one of the pumpkins, and other embellishments where they look best.
Step 5: Adding Dimension For added dimension and depth, attach some elements using foam dots or pop-up adhesive. This will create a layered effect and make certain parts of your scene stand out.
Step 6: Personalization and Embellishments Consider adding your personal touch to the project. This could involve using rub-ons to add dates, titles, or captions to the scene. You can also use brads, bling, or other embellishments to enhance the overall look.
Step 7: Ink and Distress (Optional) If you prefer a distressed or shabby chic look, use ink to distress the edges of the paper elements. This technique can give your project a vintage or rustic appearance.
Step 8: Glue Down the Scene Once you’re satisfied with the arrangement and any added details, begin gluing down the elements onto your background paper. Work from the back forward so you don’t accidentally glue down something that needs to overlap another design.
Step 9: Add Journaling (Optional) If you’d like to include journaling, use a tag or strip of paper to write down your memories or thoughts about the project. Attach the journaling element in a suitable location.
Step 10: Final Touches Review your completed scene to ensure that all pieces are securely glued down and that the arrangement looks balanced and pleasing. Add extra elements if you need to.
