Fall in Love with Autumn Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to “Fall in love with Autumn” blog hop.

Let me just start with how much I fall means to me. Leave’s turning gorgeous shades of orange, red and brown. The sweet aroma’s of hot cocoa and mulled apple cider coming out of the kitchen. Anything to do with fall fashions, boots, sweaters and pretty scarves! Oh, I can go on and on! Well with that being said I have a treat for all of you today I have a group of talented ladies that can’t wait to share with you their fall wreath that they created for this gorgeous season. We hope to inspire you and “fall in love with autumn”! Enjoy!


There is blog candy given away for this hop. The grand prize is a $20.00 gift card to Michaels or Joanns! You choose! The rules are as follows; you must become a follower of each blog and leave a comment on every stop. Winner will be selected on 9-17-12


If you have strolled over from Lucy's blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened here don't miss out on any of the beautiful projects, go back and start at Lluvia's blog.

For my project I used both an SVG file and a Cricut Cartridge. I started with the Cricut Cartridge Ribbons and Rosettes. I cut 6 sections of the Bird3 rosette found on page 68 at 4 inches. Then, I added some fall leaves from the Nuts 4 Fall file that can be found at Scrapping with Lisa Designs.


That file includes a lot more, cute squirrels, nuts (of course) and a tree! Check it out. I dressed up the leaves by adding some brown with American Craft stamp markers. Then, to give the feeling of a birds nest and add some pizzazz I used the Orange Truffle twine from Trendy Twine and some copper colored ric rac. I am sorry about the quality of the photo. The colors are much more vibrant in real life...


The next pile of leaves for you to jump into can be found at Jillian's blog. Enjoy the cooler weather!
