Lots to do - Leaves & Trees

This is my entry this week for the Lots to Do Challenge which is leaves
I have made a very simple anniversary card for my friend but it does have some leaves on the bottom corners.
They are Bazzill Basics paper leaves and they are really good quality I love working with them. They come in a variety of sizes in the one packet.

Next is a page from my daughters memory album , picture of her and her late father having fun. On here I used skeleton leaves which i find a nightmare to attach, they do adhere with glue dots but through time they stick to the plastic pages of the album so if anyone can give me any tips I would be grateful.

This next one is from my Disney album and its to represent the beanstalk that grows through the buildings in Fantasyland in Disneyland Paris. I know the leaves I have used are not beanstalk leaves but I think they make a pretty good alternative.

Lastly I have used the same leaves which are cut using a cuttlebug set of dies. The come 4 in a pack and I have used them on many projects.

Im sorry I have no trees to include in this post , but Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a nice weekend.

Beautiful layouts Jaqi. I was touched to see the one of your DD's Dad.

Skeleton leaves can be tucked under firmly positioned ribbons/paper. That way you don't need adhesive on them at all.

You can use clear glue as well that will dry and not be tacky. It might be a bit shiny if it shows through the leaf though so maybe use a dash of Mod Podge and allow to dry thoroughly.
