Hello! Michelle here with you today for the fifth day of The Cut Shoppe and Simple Stories Product Swap Week!
I counted myself super lucky to get to work with the new Pumpkin Spice Collection from Simple Stories because now, after having completed two layouts using the autumn themed products and cut files, I am officially in the mood for all things fall! Yes, bring on the PSL and sweaters!
For both of my layouts, I used newly released cut files from The Cut Shoppe. This first one features the fun Leaf It To Me cut file:
In my opinion, fall scrapping isn't quite complete without my annual falling leaf layout. There is just something so fun and whimsical about leaves floating down a page. Mix those leaves with the autumn colors of the Pumpkin Spice patterned papers and you have a recipe for a delightful fall page.
I like to layer my leaves to mimic how you would find them outside. To keep them from looking flat I use a minimal amount of adhesive-just enough to keep them from falling off the page.
For my second project, I wanted to feature the fun new I Heart Plaid cut file.
I decided to use the heart as a focal point to bring the attention straight to this photo of my little daughter. To do this, I resized the cut file in my Silhouette so that it was roughly the size of my 3x4 photo. By simply layering it under my photo the eye is drawn straight to where I want it to go.
Besides the fun colors in Pumpkin Spice, I really enjoyed using the co-ordinating stickers and die cuts, particularly the pretty vase and flowers.
Now don't forget, in celebration of this fun team up with Simple Stories, we are having a giveaway. Yay!
