Something Old, Something New for Fab Friday

For my Technique Night classes this month we are focusing on Coordinating with the new Holiday Catalogue; in other words, using our existing products and supplies from the Annual Catalogue and working them in with the new products from the  Holiday Catalogue! Each year, I hate how as soon as the Holiday and Occasions Catalogues come out, everyone forgets about the Annual Catalogue. We just don't get enough time with the amazing products in it until we move on to other things. So this year, I was determined to coordinate the new with the old! So no one is getting married, we're just 'marrying' the two catties so to speak.

My project today shares the amazing Designer Series Paper Come To Gather along with the old Seasonal Layers Dies and the new Frosted Frames Dies and wraps it up with a sentiment from Painted Harvest stamp set. It makes a great combination, don't you think??

My layout comes from Fab Friday's latest sketch:

Here's a closer look:

  • The background designer paper is from the Come To Gather DSP package, but there is one more element from that paper as well. Can you guess? Yes, it's the 3 pumpkins on the front that I fussy cut to add to the project from another design in the series. These are unusual colours for fall designer paper, but they also have patterns in rich Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze, which are more traditional.
  • I die cut maple leaves and other foliage from Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Seasonal Layers dies and the  Frosted Frames dies and layered it behind the pumpkins which are adhered with glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The ribbon is Scalloped Linen Ribbon in Pretty Peacock and the little twine bow is made from the Mint Macaron twine from the Nature's Twine collection.
