Pumpkin Heads layout for Doodlebug Design

Tuesday, November 22, 2022

Do you love the warm colors of Fall and the soft sliding into winter...? Well, with this amazingly beautiful collection, you get all oft that. No harsch and cold colors yet, even if Winter is almost here :) 

For this project, I chose to create a very simple, yet colorful and happy layout.

To start, I chose almost all of the patterned papers and cut thin, around 1/3 inch wide, strips. I didn't really take care to be precise while cutting, I just wanted strips with different lengths and approximately the same widths. Then I took a white cardstock as my background and started stitching all of my pieces onto the paper. I used different stitching styles, varying zig-zag stitches and straight stitches.

Then I distressed the edges of the stripes, which I recommend doing BEFORE stitching...;) I went through the die cut pieces and chose flowers and leaves that I placed onto the layout, trying to match the colors a bit with the background stripes.

My photo was already matted with an older orange paper that I had used months ago and then, it had ended back up in my photo collection. I adhered it, using foam tape. Then I adhered all of the florals and looked for a title. I used one of the Chit&Chat die cuts and added some gold Abigail alpha stickers.

Then came the best part of course... adding all the cute embellishments. I used jewels and enamel bees, dots and hearts. 

That's it. All done :)
Super easy, but pretty.
