Autumn Banner


October is almost half way done and FALL has finally found its way to my house. I love FALL - the fresh air smell, the cool breeze, the beautiful colors for pictures, and so much more. The only thing I don't like about FALL is all the rain!

I've slowly started adding a few FALL touches around the house. And my latest addition was this AUTUMN banner. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, just wished I would have used a slightly bigger font.

Cricut Expression; Cricut Design Studio; Banner .cut file; Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge; Sesame Street Font Cartridge; Bazzill 'London Fog', 'Bitter Chocolate', 'Sun Coral', 'French Vanilla' Cardstock; KI Memories 'Grateful Multi Stripe', 'Grateful Tree Farm' Papers; Wausau 'King Gold on Golden Crown' Cardstock; Lasting Impressions' Embossed Die-Cuts; EK Success Phrase Cafe 'Autumn Greetings' Stickers; Misc - Brown Sheer Ribbon, Walmart Fall Papers, Ink

I was inspired by all Halloween banners I've seen lately and decided to do a Fall one for my living room. And of course, I don't own a single cart that contains the new banner cuts, so put my Design Studio to work and design several of my own banners - details on this here.

For this banner I used the Scalloped Triangle(A) and Plain Triangle(A) found on my Banner File - available via comment request. Each Scalloped Triangle measures roughly 5 3/4 by 6 3/8. And the matching Inner Plain Triangle measures roughly 5 1/8 by 5 3/4.

I layered a 1.5" Paper Rosette - which also has an available .cut file - inked the edges and added a Distress Stickles border to each of the rosettes.


Through out the triangle, I used Lasting Impressions' die-cuts I purchased on ebay more than 2 years ago from Lynng704.

The letters that spell out 'autumn' were cut using the Sesame Street Cartridge at 2.5" in Wausau Metallic Cardstock. Each triangle was then embellished with an embossed Lasting Impressions' die-cut or Phrase Cafe Clear 'Autumn Greeting' sticker placed on a piece of Bazzill French Vanilla.

    Could you send me the .cut file for the triangles with matching inner traingles as I would like to make something similar for my son's birthday banner. It is a sports team so I
    would be using different colors. My email is mani_and_me@hotmail.com

  4. I love your banner. I have been going to attempt to make a banner for a while now, just haven't taken the time to design one. Thanks so much for being willing to share your cut files, I would love to have them so that I do not have to reinvent the wheel.
    Now I will have to learn to convert from a cut file to a gypsy file. I have a gypsy and my daughter now uses my design studio program.

    Thanks again for sharing!
