Nathalie with you today with a new project that marks the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year, FALL!! I love Autumn, it is my favorite season and the new Fall Farmhouse collection from Simple Stories is just perfect to document some of our Fall traditions, Apple Picking.
As soon as i saw the collection, the idea for this page formed in my mind as i wanted to use many of the designs in one page. So what better way to bring the farm feel to the page than a simple quilt design.
First i used the Leaf It To Me cut file from JustNick studio to create the large leaf from white cardstock. Then cut 2"squares from various Fall Farmhouse collection to create the design. I used the leaf to mark the area on the Peach Dots paper (Basic set) and then covered the area with the squares leaving about a 0.25" frame around the page. I stitched each square and then ruffle the edges of the paper a bit.
To assemble the page, first i stitched around the perimeter of the leaf image (using the negative part of the cut out) and then used foam adhesive to attach it on top of the quilted papers.
I used stickers, bits and pieces, chipboard from the Fall Farmhouse collection to embellish the layout by creating little clusters inside the leaf. A large cluster was placed behind the picture.
To finish this page, I mixed some of the embellishments to create the title of this page. I LOVE how this turned out, though it took a bit of time to construct, it is the perfect way to document this family tradition. I hope this inspires you to check the Fall Farmhouse collection, you are going to love it!!!
Til next time,
