Fall is upon us here in Canada and all I can think of and see around me are leaves. Leaves of every color and shape. I was inspired to use a non-autumn themed collection on a more autumn themed page.

I chose a few papers from the Life is Beautiful 6×6 paper pad and die cut them from several different leaf cut files.

I diecut each leaf shape from a different pattern of paper and layered them all around my fall photo. I used a few multi colored patterned papers to bring the various colored leaves together on the page.  The hardest part was choosing which lovely patterns to use for each leaf shape! All I needed to do now was add a title, and so I used the pretty gold puffy script stickers from the Millie & June collection.

I also had a ton of leaves left over from all my die cutting, so I put those to good use by pulling together a quick card also!

You can see that I simply used a label die cut from Happy Place and tucked the extra leaves behind the label diecut shape and added a multi colored strip of paper along the right edge of the card front.
