A Cherry on Top October Blog Hop | Pumpkin

Hey friends and welcome to the A Cherry on Top October Blog Hop! You should have arrived from the Cherry Blog! This month the team decided to create using pumpkins as our inspiration!

I really wanted to use the brand new Pumpkin Spice collection from Doodlebug Design and a fun cut file from Jillibean Soup available in the Silhouette Design Store! The collection and the cut file are the perfect match and I had so much fun backing this cut file using the Pumpkin Spice 6×6 paper pad! I picked out a handful of patterns I wanted to use and stuck with those papers to back the cut file. I try to pick out my papers before I get started and I usually stick with 3-5 different papers so it does not get to crazy!

I love using big title cut files like this on my layouts. It helps me to use a lot of different pattern papers and colors and make a big statement on my page.

I had some fun selfies from when I had my first pumpkin spice latte of 2020! I just had to take a photo right!? I also tried one of the Starbucks pumpkin cream cheese muffins! YUM! It was so good! I printed my photos at home and they are just under a 2×2 size. I added them to the top of the cut file and added in some Pumpkin Spice stickers and die cuts to each side of the photo.

I tucked in a couple stickers at the top of my photos that came from the 12×12 Pumpkin Spice sticker sheet. I love all the adorable faces on the Doodlebug icons! I really like to have some stickers or die cuts peeking out around the cut file so I used the Pumpkin Spice mini icon stickers to add around the cut file!

I think it is so fun to see the little faces on these icons peeking out around the cut file! I had so much fun working with this collection! It has the perfect color palette for fall photos! Here is a look at my completed layout!

Good Times | Jillibean Soup

Hello Everyone! Today I am sharing a layout that I created for the Spiegelmom Scraps & Scrappin Happy Studio Instagram Hop! I love both of these ladies and the products they offer in their shops! I was very excited when Jody asked me to join them in this hop!

I pulled out my Good Times cut file that I gave out to my February crop attendees and some Jillibean Soup Garden Harvest collection! The colors in this collection make my heart race. They are just gorgeous and can be used for so many projects! I wanted to document the group at my crop so I printed out one of the photos we took in black and white since we had so many colors going on in the photo. 

We had so much fun at the crop and I am so thankful for all these wonderful creative ladies! I used some American Crafts smooth white cardstock to cut my file and also as my background paper. I pulled out some Catherine Pooler inks in coordinating colors and adding some splashes of color to the white cardstock. I then picked out the patterns of paper that I wanted to back my file with. It is super simple to trace the letters and cut them out to add to the cut file.

I love to add the die cuts tucked into my word cut files like this. The Jillibean Soup Pea Pod Packs are jam packed with beautiful pieces! I also added some tiny black heart sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps and an epoxy heart from Scrappin Happy Studio!

To last thing I did was add one of the washi stickers from Jillibean Soup to the bottom of my page and some fun tabs to the top of my photo. Here is a look at my completed layout!
