WELCOME FALL LAYOUT ... LOTS OF CRICUT

Lately I've been mostly making cards and have not done a layout in quite sometime.  I did not realize how much I missed it!  I had so much fun designing and creating this fall layout.  There's something about bringing die cuts to life that has me addicted! :)


Somehow I managed to get lots of die cuts and details and still have four nice size photo mats & a big journaling tag.  
I had to be careful adding so much to my pages as it could have easily became overwhelming and gaudy.  I think the key is choosing the right colors and patterns of paper, doing larger die cuts and the placement of the cuts.  

I will give all the details on cartridges used at the bottom of this post.  For now ...here are lots of pictures.  Click on them to enlarge.     
 I Love the look and dimension of the walk way.  It's the perfect fall stroll to the inviting little cottage.  

Love the wheelbarrow bursting with leaves and a cute pumpkin.  Of course it's not fall without a bushel of apples.  These apples are of the bobbin' kind. ;)  Then we have a cute little plane flying overhead with it's welcome fall banner.  I debated if it was too much and decided it should stay. :)

Here are some close ups ...







Now just for fun...as I plan to do it like it is...but you can switch the pages around and it will look like this...

I like it this way too...but it just looks  better to me...the other way.  Maybe because that was my original plan, but the more I see it this way I do kind of like it. :)  What do you think?

Now for the Details...Details...Details...

  
Cricut Cartridges:

POP UP NEIGHBORHOOD - AIR PLANE
NEW ARRIVAL - WELCOME FALL BANNER & CLOUDS
DOODLECHARMS - BUSHEL BASKET & APPLES
FRESHLY PICKED - WHEELBARROW
STRETCH YOUR IMAGINATION - TREE
MICKEY & FRIENDS - SIDEWALK & FENCE
PAPER DOLL DRESS UP - CORN STALKS
SUGAR & SPICE - HOUSE

I do not have all the sizes for my cuts, but the house was cut at 5 1/2" and the plane at 2"...if that helps.
Pumpkins are 1" circles glued together.  Leaves are silk leaves from my stash and are approximately 3/4".  Lots of embossing with various folders.  Other extras include ink, Glossy Accents and jute twine.
Thanks for looking!

  10. Love your new FAll layout, it is adorable. The attention you do to the detail is spectacular. There is so much to see on it, I could just study it forever. I really am quite impressed with the pattern paper that you used for the photo mat and clouds. I would have never thought to use that for the clouds, as well. But it is perfect. So clever and the blend of all is great.

  12. Fantastic design (and I agree with your placement but do like the reverse, as well!). Really gorgous leaves, wheelbarrow, and house with walkway/fence. I think I'm going to try it since your tutorial is sooo clear. Many thanks!
