While your layouts will be trendy, the classic pattterns will ensure your layouts look beautiful through the years.

Give it a try on your next autumn layout!
Add a pretty touch to your spooky layouts with the gothic-inspired paper and stickers in the Haunted Hallows collection from Teresa Collins Designs.
