Live Simply

Fall is my absolute favorite season and I am so excited about the recently released Leaf Pile background cut file from The Cut Shoppe!

For this project, I paired the Pinkfresh Indigo Hills collection with a photo from my backyard that I printed in black and white.

Because I was using a black and white photo, I decided to use a muted background while keeping the cut file mostly white. The Pinkfresh paper is very thick and cuts nicely; however, be sure to set your blade at about a 5 to cut all the way through.

I started by backing my photo with yellow paper for a pop of color and followed that with various die cuts and stickers.

Next, I cut the sentiments using a font in my word processing program and attached them with machine stitching.

I followed that with a few more embellishments to finish it all off.

The completed layout is understated in terms of the color palette, but packs a punch thanks to that fabulous Leaf Pile 12x12 background cut file.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you have been inspired to create!
