I have an Autumn Song layout up on the BoBunny blog today called Wonderful Fall. I made that layout and the one I am sharing with you here called Fall Time on the same day. It was actually while I was scrapping with my new scrappy buddy Tracey during one of our monthly "scrap-togethers"! I was having so much fun playing with this collection that I couldn't stop myself. I made the Wonderful Fall layout first. I cut out the leaves that I used on that layout using my Silhouette and the cut files 3 Fall Leaves and 4 Leaves by Lori Whitlock.
I realized after I cut out the leaves that the left over paper might make a cool background for another layout so I didn't trash it or cut it down (keep reading below for a tutorial on how I did this). I decided to put it to the side for later, which came very soon because I was on a roll that day with Autumn Song! After I finished my Wonderful Fall layout, I was ready to try using the negative piece for another layout. I started putting different patterns and colors behind the cut outs and finally settled on using a piece of green patterned paper which helped make the cut out shapes stand out against the red-orange patterned paper that I cut them from.
TUTORIAL | Die Cut Leaves Background
Open the 4 Leaves file and place them on the cutting mat in the bottom left hand corner, keeping them at their original size. Open the 3 Fall Leaves file and ungroup them images. Place them as shown in the image below, again keeping them at their original size. Make sure to position them so that there is some space between each image. Now you are ready to cut your fall leaves background image!
I then added my photos and embellishments, along with some cute ribbon from the Autumn Confetti Dots Grosgrain Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.
