Happy Fall Y’All! | Ali Skifton

Hi my CTY friends! It is Ali, @funadventrueswithali here with you today sharing a Fall layout using the new Autumn Acorn cut file. I had so much fun creating those acorn shakers. I feel they compliment the cute photo of my Aunt and Uncle attending Oktoberfest.

I first backed the leaf since that was an easy big piece to do. I then backed the top of the acorns and proceeded to cut some acetate out for the front of the acorns. Once the acetate was glued, I used thin strips of foam tape to outline the bottom halves of the acorns. I filled them with pretty fall sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps. After making sure they were filled enough I sealed it with more of the wood paper I used to back the tops with. I just adore how these acorn shakers turned out on this page.

I used the Fall collection from Echo Park Paper and had fun adding little enamel white dots around the acorns and leaf to pop them even more. For the background I used a mixed media cardstock from Vicki Boutin that matched the colors I used for the cut file.

I matted my layout four times, just to bring in all the colors that are in the leaves paper I used. I added a heart flair from Scrappin Happy Studio that says Feeling of Fall. This is my favorite season and I just love all the color changes that happen during this time.

Happy Fall Y’All!

Love, Ali xoxo
