Scrap the Challenge: Focus on Fall

Mari and I decided to focus on fall for this week's challenge. Fall is one of my favorite seasons for so many reasons, so I thought that it would be neat to document it. I used this shape from the Silhouette design store by Felicity Jane. I bought it when the silhouette store was having a sale because I knew that I would most certainly use it. I also pulled out my kit that I made for the Counterfeit kit challenge for this month. 

 I am really trying to make an effort to use more patterned paper as backgrounds, and I love the way the cut file looks on this paper. The pink just makes everything pop off the page and I couldn't be more thrilled with the way that it turned out.

 Instead of journaling in sentence form, I typed out several things that I love about fall and then placed them randomly on the die cut. I then sewed through the strips with gold thread to add a bit more gold to the layout. Adding more gold is always a good thing!

These Dear Lizzy Thickers are some of my favorites for their size. The height adds impact and the width allows for a longer title without taking up a lot of room on the page. 

The papers used on this layout, the leaf clip, and the die cut pieces are all from the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane collection. I'm not 100% sure where the fox flair is from, but I think it is Freckled Fawn. I'm linking the process video below in case you'd like to take a peek at how the layout came together. Be sure and check out Mari's video as well. As always, suggestions for future challenges are always welcome :)
