Hello crafty friends,
Jenny of Jen's Crafty place here with you today. It's my turn to share and today I am sharing this super cute Autumn layout.
Create this fun and easy two page layout with images from Carving out Memories, Autumn Title, and Bear in Sweater with Apples all from papercraftingworld.com
I also used leaf dies from Prima to add an airy feel. The solid papers were from Recollections found at Michael's and the decorative papers were from "The Fall Stack" by Die Cuts With a View found at JoAnn's. (I think it has been discontinued so use any fall papers.)
After cutting the pieces out with my Silhouette, I inked them all with Distress Inks. Optional, use a white gel pen for highlights.
I cut my mats for my pictures and ran them through my Sizzix Big Kick for a little added texture. I used the a swirl folder from The Paper Studio found at Hobby Lobby. Each mat was backed with a tiny bit of black paper to help them stand out from the background papers. Lastly, I cut some strips of decorative paper in a wave to add movement to my layout and placed them behind my mats and title. (Before you glue anything down, you should lay them all out where you think they should go. I usually walk away at this point and then come back later to see if I still like how I have my items arranged. This is always a good idea to get a fresh pair of eyes on your project. When I come back, if I like it, I adhere it all down or I move stuff around then adhere.
If you already have photos you know you want to use, mat them first. Then lay them out to fit on the two pages and once you have all the photos placed add the die cuts. I print my own pictures so I can make them fit any size mats that I make.
If you make this layout please submit it to our October monthly challenge page. October's challenge is "Anything Goes" and the "Twist" is use a pumpkin or leaves. This uses BOTH!
I hope you were inspired. Be sure to visit me on my blog for more fun projects. Thank you so much!
