Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful week and are headed into a weekend of relaxing fun! The weather is getting chilly here but this is my absolute favourite time of the year so I am loving it. The wind has been blowing and the gorgeous red, orange and yellow leaves are starting to fall. And seriously, there is nothing as wonderful as jumping into a big pile of crunchy fall leaves. Even at 2 and 4 years old, my kids had realized how much fun there is in raking a pile of leaves only to jump into it, throw the leaves up high and make a mess that needs to be raked up again. It is memories like these ones that should be captured in your albums and remembered in your heart!
Last weekend we celebrated Thanksgiving in Canada. For the occasion, I created a wall hanging using the brand new Autumn Day collection by PHOTO PLAY PAPER. Let me tell you that I really enjoyed working with these papers. It is wonderful when you go to create a project that is not flat to have paper that is nice and sturdy and holds it’s own.
To create this project, I cut the 12×12 papers into 6×6 squares and rolled them into cone shapes. I then attached the smaller ends of the paper cones to each other in the center using glue dots. I fussy cut the ‘Give Thanks’ sentiment and attached it to a circular coaster to give me something sturdy to attach the embroidery thread for hanging the decoration. I love seeing all the different patterns of the collection placed together. Happy Fall!
I have a few other projects to share with you this week using this collection. Beth Kingston from Kingston Crafts created a Fall banner. When I saw Beth’s banner I knew I had to share it with you. I love how she used different papers for the lettered pages and then added a card to each end.
These next cards by Karen Petersen are also created using the Autumn Day collection using the 4×6 and 3×4 cards cut from the patterned paper combined with additional elements from the collection.
As you can see, this collection is perfect for the season. As someone who loves striped paper, I also really like the various patterns that are included in this collection.
Our friends at PHOTO PLAY PAPER would like to give the Autumn Day collection pack to one lucky Scrapbook Expo friend.
