Hi All, it’s Sarah here with you today sharing a layout created using the fab Pumpkin Large cut file (pre-cut option here).

I cut the pumpkin in it’s original size on smooth white cardstock. I thought about backing it with patterned papers, but instead I decided to paint it. I used my Jane Davenport liquid water colour markers and spritzed the whole cut file with water to get a more colour washed effect.

I trimmed another sheet of white cardstock down to 11.5×11.5 and gutted the black check paper to create a border. Once the cut file was dry I stuck it directly to the white background and flicked the main body of the pumpkin with gold Heidi Swapp Colour Shine.  I mounted my photo on a green floral paper and stuck direct to the back ground. I then used some acetate leaves by Hip Kit to embellish two corners of the photo.

I added a couple of Jen Hadfield puffy sticker leaves and a word sticker.  I added a couple of strips of patterned papers at the top of the layout, I then added a puffy word sticker and some wood veneer leaves from Hip Kit. I added a few extra puffy sticker dots and enamel dots as extra embellishments.  I used gold Thickers for the title.

See you again soon!

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
