My scrappers will be putting creating this two page layout a week from today. I just love the way this turned out. The 12×12 card stock base is Soft Suede. There’s a strip of green at the bottom from the Specialty Designer Series paper pack called Autumn Spice. You can see some Tasteful Trim accent pieces. Oh, how I love that die!! It’s a dream die for every scrapbooker out there – four different trim pieces a full 12″ long.
Occasionally, I get e-mails wondering about the size of my mats. They are usually standard picture sizes either 4×6 or 5×7. If you see a smaller one, it’s usually 4×4. I try to keep it simple. The mats are always adhered with dotto until pictures can be fitted to them, or perhaps removed completely depending on what is needed when it’s time to put the pictures on. If you see a frame around the mat, it’s always a 1/4″ bigger than the mat.
Isn’t Mr. Turkey a cutie? He is made with that long leaf in the Leaves #2 Die. Even his beak and wattle are made from the leaf die . . . isn’t it nice when you can create so many different looks with one image? The turkey’s body and head are created with circles are from the Circles #2 Die and the feet are from the Snowflake Punch.
There’s just a tiny bit of stamping on this project using the stamp set called Falling Leaves. You could also decorate this area much more minimally and use it for a journaling box. How do you like the Soft Suede Frame? I made it with the Scallop Oval Frame Die. Just center a 3″x4 1/2″ piece of paper over the die and when you cut it out, it looks like this. I discovered this by accident when I needed just the oval for another project I was working on.
Here’s the title. I just got the alphabet die set called Simple Letters so I was anxious to use it – – – totally fun. The maple leaf is from the same die that I created the turkey from. If you click on this picture so that it is enlarged, you will see the spots and speckles on the Soft Suede. It’s Smooch Spritz and it’s really fun to use it on your scrapbook pages.
