I was up on the Hip Kit Club blog with another layout this week. We are talking about gratitude this week, and I have so many things to be grateful about. For this layout I chose "autumn splendor" as my thing to be thankful for. This photo was taken about three autumns ago, and the maple trees are simply beautiful (and match that Pinkfresh Studio paper perfectly).
I used this fabulous cut file by Kim Watson to cut leaves out of several different patterned papers from the October Main Kit. I used the same papers for various sizes of rectangles to put behind some of the leaves to create a grid. I stitched around all of the rectangles as well as around the border of the page to add some texture and definition to the shapes.
I used the exclusive alphas from the main kit as part of my title and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word "splendor". I actually cut the file out twice and glued them together to give the word a little more thickness.
And I made a process video if that suits your fancy.
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
