During the month of September, I will be creating weekly projects using the Feel So Blessed stamp set so make sure to visit often. This week, I have created an autumn themed layout with our New Fundamentals papers to express what I am truly grateful for. As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this project at the very bottom of this post.
Paper Needed: (2) 12″ x 12″ Cardstock (Toffee), (15) 3″ x 3″ B&T Paper (Enchantment Fundamentals), 6″ x 8″ Cardstock (Nutmeg), 6″ x 4″ Cardstock (Nutmeg), 6″ x 6″ Cardstock (Toffee), 4″ x 4″ Saffron Cardstock, 4″ x 4″ Fern Cardstock, 3″ x 3″ Pomegranate Cardstock, 6″ x 6″ Gold Glitter Paper
Techniques Used on the Layout:
• The Enchantment Fundamentals squares were adhered to the pages about 1½” from the top of the page. I did not put paper behind the photo mats (I like to save when I can).
• The Leaves were cut from Saffron, Fern, and Pomegranate cardstock using the You Are Here Cricut® cartridge. I added texture to the leaves using our new Leaves Embossing folder that can be found in our Holiday Expressions catalog.
The Title was cut from Gold Glitter paper using the You Are Here Cricut® cartridge. You can view the Cricut® Design Space file here
, but you must own the cartridge in order to cut out the images. You can purchase this amazing You Are Here Cricut® cartridge bundle from my website
I used Nutmeg Ink to stamp the “For This”, “So Blessed” and number images onto Toffee cardstock. I used our 3-D Foam Dots to attach the numbers to the journalling strips to create a list of the things I am grateful for.
