Hello Pebbles Friends! Happy Wednesday!
There are so many fun ways to celebrate the changing of seasons and Fall is no different! I especially love the challenge of using beautiful themed collections, because living in the southern hemisphere, I get to reflect on the season from six months ago! Documenting Fall Traditions is a beautiful and simple idea to help motivate and record your stories from earlier in the year. Today I am sharing a layout that showcases what our family loves to do, as soon as the weather turns cooler.
We go camping!
I have created this layout using Midnight Haunting as my inspiration. There is no reason not to use a collection just because it has been designed with a particular theme in mind. If the colours are suitable, I will play along without restrictions.
The patterned papers are glorious in their fall colours. I wanted to highlight them using several different choices in my title work. To recreate a similar title for your page/s, this is how it is done:
step 1. Silhouette Cut file Alphabet
Choose a font suitable for your layout. I have selected Ashley Horton’s Open Letter Alpha cut file from her shop. Create your title in the Silhouette software program (or alternatively, hand cut your own alphas).
Remove the inner cut pieces from the border outline. Use these pieces to trace around the outside edges of each alpha onto a different patterned paper.
Trim and adhere to the reverse side of the cardstock border cut file. If you are using wet adhesive, allow the title to dry before adding it to your layout.
If you wish to complete a layout similar to mine, create a patterned paper grouping and use it to mount four (4) 3″x2″ black and white photos. This is a great way to use up leftover pieces of patterned paper. Position the title below the photo cluster and use it as a guide to prevent clashing colours.
Add some fussy cut details and journal about your Fall Traditions on paper strips.
Complete the look with a few small splashes of black paint and cardstock sticker embellishments from Midnight Haunting.
I hope the title work on this page has inspired your to focus on documenting one of your fall traditions. I can’t wait to hear about the different ways others celebrate the changing of seasons. Thanks for visiting.
