Fall is my favorite season and the Cedar Lane collection is definitely one of my favorite fall lines! I love the pretty fall colors of the patterned papers and the fun designs of the embellishments. I wanted to incorporate several patterned papers for this layout, so I started my layout with a large die cut leaf.
I used a white cardstock background for the layout and also cut the leaf from white cardstock. I love the tone-on-tone look with the contrast of the pops of color from the patterned papers. I trimmed three patterned papers from the collection to layer behind the leaf cut file. I placed the die cut in the center of the layout and then stitched around the edges with my sewing machine to add texture.
I wanted my photo, title, and embellishments to be clustered and layered over the leaf die cut, so I placed my photo in the center of the design first. Then I used the gold and silver Thickers from the collection for my title. I love that you can shape these foam Thickers and I was able to curve the words around the leaf shapes. I didn’t want to cover much of the patterned paper and leaf design, so I created a couple of embellishment clusters around the photo and used one of the fun arrow embellishments from the collection above the title.
I hope you’ve found some inspiration today to go all out for fall on your next layout! If you’re out of the Cedar Lane collection, grab some of your other Pink Paislee collections and create your own fall color scheme by pulling out teal, yellow, pink, and brown papers. Then incorporate a fall-themed die cut and you’re all set!
