For all my new followers, I wanted to thank you for stopping by and to my "oldies" thanks for coming back! Just a quick little note, I am on the SVG Attic design team. I work with a bunch of great ladies on the team. There's a few new DT projects a week so make sure you check SVG Attic's blog for all the latest. I post my projects the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month.
Let me get on to the stuff you came here to see! My project! In my last post I mentioned I was scared of layout. I started off making layouts way back when I got into scrapbooking (haha, only a year ago!) but since then I found I loved making cards. I got so used to making cards that making a 12x12 layout seemed like way too much for me. How the heck do you fill a 12x12 page? Somehow I figured it out and now I am loving layouts again...as long as they are one page layouts! I haven't graduated to two pages layouts yet. With all that said, I bet you can guess what my project is!
I used the Fall Leaves SVG collection as my inspiration and starting point for this project. I mix and matched the colors and used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distressing ink to make them look a little dirty and not so bright.
I used the super cute Apple Picking collection for my barrel of apples and of course the apples themselves. I embossed the inside piece of the barrel with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder. I then used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distressing ink to give it some additional depth.
I also used the same embossing folder for the yellow frame around the picture. For that part for the layout I used my Zutter Distress-it-all to distress the edges and again used the Tea Dye ink to make it look older and ragged. I add red eyelets to the top using a Crop-a-Dile.
The patterned paper is DCWV's Harvest Gathering stack.
On the left side I framed in the boarder with Trendy Twine's brown and orange fall twine. Its kind of hard to see but it's there.
I created the title in Make the Cut. I love how you can use any font on your computer. In fact I cut all the SVGs using MTC.
The finishing touches on the layout are the three cute little brown buttons on the right side. I tied off some hemp on the buttons to add more color.
I hope you enjoyed this project and hope you come again!
