American Crafts October Gallery - Love the Fall

Hi everyone!

I am back sharing more October Gallery layouts today for American Crafts using their brand spanking new Autumn Crisp Collection.  When this collection arrived on my doorstep I squealed.  Fall is my favorite season - and the colors, textures and embellishments in this collection are amazing!

Love The Fall Layout

My inspiration for this layout started by cruising the Silhouette store for some fun fall files.  When I am stuck on a project or just don't know where to begin, I often start there.  I found this amazing speech bubble title and these cute fall leaves there.

To give my leaves some texture, I ran them through my sewing machine, and left some of the threads hanging for a fun look.

I love the colors in this collection.  That beautiful pink gave me an excuse to try out a new spray mist that I picked up from October Afternoon called Pink Balloon (I think it is going to become a favorite of mine).  To complete the look I added some wood buttons, photo overlay, wood paperclip and fall leaves.

Also, I have a second layout to share with you today.  I couldn't pick just two layouts to share for the American Crafts October gallery so I made three.  To see my other gallery post go here.

Exploring Fall

 I loved this photo that I had of my BichPoo Roxy walking around in the fall leaves and decided that it was perfect to use with the Autumn Crisp collection.

 I cut the leaf, title and circular doilies using my Silhouette Cameo and then used the doilies as a mask to get my layout started.  I also handstitched around them using embroidery floss.  

So Fun!

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share my gallery layout.  If you love Fall as much as I do then this collection is a must have for you!

Have a good one!
