MakeItMondayButton-Fall-2Welcome to another Make It Monday! Do you know that Fall is my absolute favorite season? Kinda crazy considering San Diego is in a perpetual summer, but it’s true… I absolutely love Fall!

In the US, we still have Halloween this month and most of the month of November before we celebrate Thanksgiving on November 27th, but I’m creating samples for a class I’m teaching next month, and thought I’d go ahead and share these creations as Canada is celebrating their Thanksgiving Day today. Cheers, Canada!

PROJECT TIP: Get cohesion in your choices! When I was conceptualizing my projects – selecting colors and papers for these banners – I had the fun idea to add texture to the kraft paper. But what type of texture? I let the theme of the papers lead my decision… leaves and trees, so adding wood grain texture to the neutral kraft cardstock seemed like the perfect fit! Did you notice it on the banners? What do you think? Pretty cool, huh?!

    What gorgeous banners Connie. I can’t believe you used a die to cut all those out. My new Cricut Explore should be here today so I was thinking about making some banners but with my Cricut.
