Autumn Layouts and ATCs

One morning last week I signed into FB and read that my friend Penny had Autumn sitting on her porch flirting with cooler temps and a break from the humidity. It was so nice to have a break in the 100 degree weather even if only for a day. Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year, and I am trying to WILL it to come now. :) It makes me happy to find the store   shelves filled with Fall, Halloween, and even a bit of Christmas.

These pictures are actually from the 4th of July, but I thought the creamy neutrals went so beautifully with her dress and the deck. (Boohoo, can't believe how much my pixie has grown in a year!)

Notice the new fabric Primas? I love the mix of textures and colors.

I'm so sad I forgot to get a full shot of this layout. I love how it turned out. These papers are GORGEOUS. They are a great mix from several of the new lines. Sherri does a fantastic job kitting it all.

I like how my Maya Road leaf turned out. First I stamped it with a background stamp. Then I inked it with chalk inks, and added diamond glaze over the top. Made it look like a grungy fallen leaf. :)

I mixed the new Primas with handmade flowers and cute stickers from Karen Foster. 

This next kit was brown and grey and I added a touch of green. It's just pictures of me and my little ones playing out front enjoying the cool weather last year. 

I do like how my leaves turned out. I layered the chipboard leaf over the adhesive-backed felt leaves, dry embossed the chipboard, layered it with new Maya Road trim, and a butterfly cut from 7 Gypsies new paper. 

 I love this star embossed paper from Jenni Bowlin. That was from my stash. I'm getting better at the not hoarding thing. (Sort of :P)

I used the rest of the kit to make these ATCs. 

Yes. I do love them. Yes, they will cause problems with my resolve not to hoard. Fear not. I have already turned them in. I promise not to weep if someone swipes them. ;)

The bird is from 7 Gypsies paper, the twig is new from Prima, and that's the MR trim again. I was feeling very Darwin at the Galapagos as I made this. 

 This ATC was inspired by the tag I made for the Artistic Journey last week. I used Martha Stewart's new microbeads around the window. The only thing I don't like about the microbeads is I can't go torment my hubby by wiping them on his face like I usually do with glitter. :D 

Eeeeee. I still love it. I used a Maya Road chipboard window, and maya-misted the different pieces with buttercream and bronze. It came out very soft.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Scrapping! DeeDee
