It might be scorching hot in Southern California right now, but that won’t stop us from falling in love with fall!

MakeItMondayCircle-FALL2015Welcome to another Make It Monday! I can’t believe we’re rolling into fall already! My girls start school this week and I’m excited for my favorite season of the year to begin! It’s been unbearably warm at times here in San Diego, but getting to play with these gorgeous fall dies from Top Dog Dies has me ready for the cool days of autumn!

I love using what I have and creating something totally unique. That’s probably why I like using a couple different die sets on most of my projects! On this fun “Fall in Love” banner, I’m using two super adorable new dies: Make a Banner Die Set (pennants) and Pocket Page Fall Die Set (leaves and squirrel). Look at the super cute details!

I hope you’re inspired to create something with these dies! The quality is amazing – they cut like butter!

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?!
