Hey there! today I'm sharing my latest CutCardStock project, a scrapbook layout.
I’m lucky enough to have a second home up in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. One of my favorite things there, besides the beautiful scenery, is seeing the wildlife and we always have a camera ready to capture them in photos.
Creating Patterned Card Stock
I like using patterned papers/card stocks on my projects. Not having any that I liked to coordinate with my photos, I created my own.
The Basis White Card Stock was used. I trimmed a 12 x 12 inch piece to 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. Using a used dryer sheet, I dabbed 3 colors of ink to created a textured background. A 4th color was used with a dried baby wipe to add some color to the edges and overall background.
To create a coordinated pattern, I sued a leaf stencil with 3 of the inks used above.
Three photos were chosen, trimmed and matted with the Stardream Metallic Gold Card Stock.
I created frames to add by die cutting with 2 circle dies.
The layout base is formed by matting the textured card stock with a 12 x 12 piece of the Ginger Snap Card Stock.
The stenciled card stock was trimmed to approximately 9 3/8 x 6 7/8 inches. I matted with a piece of the Gold Metallic card measuring 9 1/2 x 7 inches. This piece was adhered to the center of the piece above.
Photos were arranged and added next.
The title was computer generated and printed onto a piece of Basis White card. It is framed with a negative piece of one of the circle die cut frames. A circle die cut was added with strips of the gold and ginger snap card stocks. Three strips pieces of ginger snap were added by the photos.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my layout project.

Oh my! I can not believe that summer is almost gone and fall will be here before we know it! Do you feel the same way?
I have a fall themed card project to share with you today. I do love fall with the cooler weather and falling leaves in golds, oranges, browns and reds, which is the inspiration for the wreath on my card. And, CutCardStock has a great selection of card stocks in these colors.
Knowing that I wanted a wreath to be the focal of my card, I started by die cutting the elements for it using:
DCS Discount Card Stock: Vanilla Bean Brown Card Stock, DCS Discount Card Stock: Canvas Textured Ginger Snap Card Stock, DCS Discount Card Stock: Smooth Sand Castle Tan, DCS Discount Card Stock: Canvas Textured ADOBO Orange, DCS Discount Card Stock: Textured Flame Tree Orange Card Stock, Basis GOLD 80lb Cardstock, Basis BURGUNDY Cardstock
Using 2 sizes circle dies I cut 5 frames out of the Vanilla Bean Brown CardStock to use as my wreath base. The other colors were used to cut various sizes of foliage.
Once I had all the foliage applied, I added a die cut sentiment and bow.
My wreath is complete and ready for the card.
I used the Classic Crest Natural White Card Stock to make a 5 x 6 1/2 inch card base. A piece of the Ginger Snap Card was cut to 5 x 6 1/2 inches and adhered to the card base. Patterned paper cut to 5 x 2 1/4 inches was added to the bottom of the card, An embossing folder was used on a piece of the natural white card cut to 4 3/4 x 4 1/4 inches for the top of the card. Vanilla Bean Brown was cut to 1/2 x 5 inches and added as a border.
The wreath was adhered to the card and my design is complete.
I hope you have enjoyed my “Hello Fall Card” project!
