Fall is such a fun time for our family . . . we take Fall Drives, visit local pumpkin patches, roast hot dogs and marshmallows in the backyard, bake fall treats together in the kitchen, and more! We love it!
I adore the new Fine & Dandy collections by My Mind's Eye! The gold, orange, brown and aqua colors in the Fine & Dandy "True Blue" collection were perfect for scrapping these pictures of my kids posing at the pumpkin patch. I used the patterned papers, 6 X 6 paper pad (leaves), trims, gems, chipboard, dimensional stickers and decorative brads for this 2-pager.
I created faux stitching on my page by using a paper piercer to punch holes along the edges of my page and the tree shape. Next I used a black gel pen to connect the pierced dots. I love to use this technique when I have curvy shapes (the tree) and want them to appear as though they have a perfectly stitched edge . . something that can be difficult to a achieve on a sewing machine. This is also a great technique to use if you don't have access to a sewing machine.
Supplies: My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy "True Blue Collection, Cricut Expression, Cricut Straight from the Nest cartridge (Fall), Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge (tree).
Have a great week!
