Hello! TGIF...am I right!?
Britt here this morning to share with you some projects that I made using the new fall-themed stacks: both 6x6 and 12x12 stacks called Sweater Weather!
This stack has lots of leaf themes, plaids, wood grain, photo-real sheets, and brassy foil accents.
First I made a little card using the 6x6, double-sided stack, raffia, and leaf embellishments.
Both in the 12x12 and the 6x6 stack, there are sheets of cut-apart journaling cards. I cut one of the cards out of the small stack and then I trimmed the word 'grateful' out to create my sentiment.
Next I pulled out a photo I've been waiting to scrap. I needed the perfect set of autumn-themed supplies to capture the sweet, soft cuteness of this photo.
I love ALL the papers I used from the 12x12 Sweater Weather stack for this layout! I love the way the soft, photo-real background looks against the more geometric teal plaid. I fussy-cut some hearts from one of the papers and sewed them to the layout. I also added an arrow and a banner that I cut from a 6x6 cork paper stack.
I added a few fall-themed dimensional stickers and two journaling cards from my stash along with a few buttons to round out my clusters.
Since I had to take my layout to my sewing machine to attach the hearts I decided to also add some stitches on the leaves above my photo as well.
Lastly, I had a raw wood base for a fall-themed home decor piece and I knew this was the perfect stack to decorate it!
I got this raw wood base from one of those "trading co." places and it's SO cute! First I painted the sides of each letter and let them dry. Then I traced and cut the letters from the papers I chose, attached them with a glue stick and then let that dry.
I sanded all the edges to help secure the papers to each letter. Then, I embellished each letter with a few leaf embellishments, vintage buttons, and some of the sayings from the journaling cards found in the 12x12 stack.
SO, next time you're in your nearest Joann's pick up your new favorite fall-themed stack and get ready - Sweater Weather is almost here!
