TSF Autumn Colours Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Autumn Colours Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends!  You should have arrived here from the Two Scrapbook Friends blog.

As soon as the Harvest Lane collection arrived at the store, I just knew I had to create something with it.  I found these photos from a few years ago and they were perfect for what I had in mind.

I created my own title using my Silhouette!  The 'Thankful' word is cut from paper and then shadowed with cardstock.  I used the Silhouette pens to write 'so very' and then positioned it perfectly on my layout.

These awesome trees are also cut using my Silhouette.  I added some stitching with coordinating floss to give them some dimension!

I added some copper brads along the striped strip and added stitching to some of my leaves.  The leaves I didn't stitch on, I popped up using foam adhesive.

I used my Silhouette to add my journaling to my page too!  The pens are so much fun to used and it sure beats my handwriting.
