This is my second post today, so be sure to scroll down to see my reveal for Sassy Lil Sketches! For a few days I thought my creative mojo had taken a vacation. I had been working with some bright colors for a project, and I am always stumped when it comes to the cooler brighter colors. I am envious of those of you who can work with them so wonderfully! But then I pulled out this new paper packet from CTMH's fall/winter idea Book, and I was ready to create again! You can click on the picture to open it and see more detail.
This paper is called Dreamin', and the it's made of up of chocolate, bamboo, goldrush, honey, and crystal blue. Oh, it was just perfect for these pictures and complimented them well. I want to tell you a few details on this layout. I cut the leaves with the new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. This set comes with matching stamp sets so after they were all cut, I stamped them with goldrush ink. From there, I heavily sponged the edges with chocolate. I finished the leaf banner by tying some chocolate waxy flax loosely around it.
The sentiment (Harvest of Memories), pumpkins and their leaves are from the So Grateful stamp set. I fussy cut those once I stamped them. I used the same sponging technique as I did on the leaves, but on the pumpkins I sponged with goldrush. The bracket is from the new Milepost Shapes. What a value these are - 48 corrugagted shapes for $3.95! On to the letters. They are cork board color-ready alphas. They are so easy to color to match your project. For this one, I just sponged the edges with goldrush ink. Then I finished off the page with some wooden buttons.
I will be entering this in the Scrappin' Chics Challenge which is to scrap with banners.
