Fall is in the Air | Falloweeen Classic Kit

Happy Saturday!  Laura here with you today, I am sure that you have probably picked up on it by now, Saturday's are my days to share here!  I am so excited to be playing with a new kit, the October "Falloween" Kit is so full of goodness! If you missed it you can check out my unboxing video here on my You-Tube channel. The DT is embracing another challenge given to us by our DT coordinator, Meridy.  This week she has challenged us with a "Pumpkin Pie Challenge", so basically we can use the colour orange or a triangle / wedge shape.  You can see from my page, I jumped right in and used both!

I used the knife tool in my Silhouette Studio software to cut up a circle into pie shaped wedges to create the focal area behind my photos, then I cut each one out of a different patterned paper from the kit!

After that I added in some stitching down the centre of each wedge, except the plaid one, and then layered my photos onto a eighth patterned paper and tucked a leaf shaped doily behind it.

As you can see, I used lots of different oranges on this page!

The rustic twill ribbon in this kit is just so pretty and perfect, I used it to add some texture to my page by creating little layered loops with it.

The stitching in the ribbon is what inspired the stitching on this layout.

I hand cut a couple of leaves to layer behind this sweet wooded acorn element. 

I love these little cut apart phrases from Pretty Little Studios, I chose three that suited my photos and added little fish tails to one side before adhering them to my page.

I couldn't resist stitching "wind movement" onto my page for these cute chipboard leaves.  I knew that I wanted to do this for these leaves right away but couldn't decide what to do with a second set of leaves.

A few simple accents on the top left of my photos, adds some lovely pop.

I finished my layout by trimming down the background cardstock to 10 3/4" (ish) and added some more plaid patterned paper beneath it.  After adding more stitching, I embellished it with the other two chipboard leaves, a chipboard phrase and an epoxy button.

I have created another process video for this layout, you can check it out below or here on my You-Tube channel!
