Happy Monday Everyone!
Last Friday, September 23rd was the official start of the Fall season for many of us on the Northern Hemisphere - I think. You can already start to feel a few cooler breezes, the smell of fresher air and the leaves start to fall. And that is why this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #79 is all about FALLING LEAVES!
I started out with a GREAT idea to make an altered frame - of sorts - with LOTS of cruchy FALLEN LEAVES. But as I went along the frames started taking a life of their own and didn't quite turn out how I had planned. However, I was able to fit quite a few different LEAVES in there.
In the "F" frame, I made a cluster of 4 different LEAVES. Can you tell what cartridges I used? If you guessed Accent Essentials(red), Create-A-Critter(center floral), and Doodlecharms(orange, green, yellow, blue) then you're right. These were cut at around 2", inked edges, doodled and then wrinkled for a "crunchy" look. The little acorns are also from the Create-A-Critter cartridge, cut at about 1-1/2".
The individual letters were cut from the Pooh Font cartridge at 4-1/8".
For the "A" Frame, I used some of My Craft Spot's "Harvest Wine" & "Pumpkin Spice" Crinkled Ribbon from the "Color of Autumn" Bundle Set. I just love how these two colors match perfectly and give a warm feel. I added a LEAF brad I had in my stash to the center.
LOVE the papers you are seeing? Well, they all came in Artful Delight's September Kit! The kit includes the entire paper line of Crate Paper's Farmhouse Collection, a few sheets of the Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Collection, coordinating Bazzill Cardstock, and soo soo much more.
Just look at the ADORABLE pumpkin embellishment Delightful Designer Debbie created and is included in the kit. All I did was add a few extra LEAVES from the Doodlecharms Cartridge and some Lt. Green Memory Thread.
There is currently ONE September Kit left, so hurry on over to the Artful Delight Store for your kit now.
Each letter was adhered with some Homemade Dimensionals so they would stand out a bit more.
Ok, NOW its your turn! Create a project with a LEAVES and link it up to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog by Sunday, October 2nd 11:59PM EST for your chance to win this week's prize.
