Hi lovely friends. Today I’m sharing my first fall 2018 layout with you (even though the picture is from summer… 😉 ). I saw this beautiful fall leaves cut file by Paige Evans and also this fox cut file and wanted to use them both on one layout. What better collection to use than the Auburn Lane collection?
The colors of the Auburn Lane collection are very “fallish” but I wanted to add some other, more bright colors, too. As my background I used this woodgrain patterned paper and since I knew I wanted to use this bright pink paper from Oh My Heart for the flowers on the fox, I splattered some pink, peach, and white paint on the paper.
I used the leaves cut file and backed it with papers from the 6×6 paper pad and some 12×12 sheets from the Auburn Lane collection. For the fox, I used a patterned paper from Auburn Lane and one from Turn the Page. The pink color of that last paper was too bright, so I tuned it down by smooshing some white gesso in some places. I really love the ombre effect it gave. For the flowers, I used some Oh My Heart papers and I love how they stand out from the other, more muted, colors.
Don’t mind the little sequin on the fox’s nose, I only noticed now that it must have fell on my layout before I took the pictures 😉
I placed both backed cut files on my page and started decorating. I fussy cut a bunch of the gold flowers from the vellum specialty sheet and added them all around the leaves cut file.
I used a picture from my last vacation in Italy and backed it with strips I created, using the Auburn Lane washi tape, that I adhered to a white sheet, then cut out.
For my title I used the mini foam Thickers from the same collection. I love to mix gold and rose gold and I thought that this was the perfect layout to do so. Then I used some more embellishments like flowers and hearts to place in different spots on my layout.
I really love how this layout turned out, using two cut files! You should definitely try it too, it’s really fun and your layout will come together really fast… well the idea at least… maybe not the making of it… 😉
