autumn splendor | main kit only

Hi Friends! Orange Gearle here today with a layout using the October Main Kit.  It’s all about gratitude this week on the Hip Kit Blog, and one thing that I do not take for granted are the lovely colors of autumn! This is a photograph of my daughter three years ago and the colors of the maple trees were at prime perfection on this day!


I used this fabulous cut file by Kim Watson to cut leaves out of several different patterned papers from the October Main Kit. I used the same papers for various sizes of rectangles to put behind some of the leaves to create a grid. I stitched around all of the rectangles as well as around the border of the page to add some texture and definition to the shapes.


I used the exclusive alphas from the main kit as part of my title and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word “splendor”. I actually cut the file out twice and glued them together to give the word a little more thickness.


Just a few pieces of ephemera from the Pink Fresh Studio ephemera pack included in the kit as well as some Bella Blvd blue stars sprinkled around the page and I was done!

I also made a process video, if that suits your fancy.

Thanks for stopping by!
