hello fall

Welcome to the last october challenge at Lasting Memories: Anything goes with a fall or halloween theme.

I decided to create a fall themed layout. The pictures with this funny mushroom in the middle of the log of wood were perfect for this. I found an older paper pack in my stash and used it to back the leaf cluster cutfile from just nick.

Hope, you join in to our challenge!

Thanks for your visit!

The challenge of todays mixed bag challenge at Lasting Memories is to use torn edges. 

In der heutigen Challenge bei Lasting Memories wollen wir gerissenes Papier sehen. 

Ich habe graues Papier mit weißer Stempelfarbe und den Stempeln von creative depot bestempelt. 

I stamped onto a grey paper to create my own patterned paper.

I love these fishes from creative depot. I stamped them on grey paper and embossed them with white embossing powder.

Ich liebe diese Fischstempel von creative depot. Hier habe ich sie auf graues Papier gestempelt und weiß embosst. 

Für den Titel habe ich mir ähnliche Schriftarten wie auf dem Stempel raus gesucht und ihn dann mit der Cameo ausgeschnitten. Im Hintergrund habe ich mit einem Stencil und transparenter Strukturpaste Schiffchen aufgetragen. 

The title is cut out with my cameo. I tried to find similar fonts like these on the stamp. For more texture on the background, I used a stencil and transparent texture paste to create these boats.

summer days

The last "plants-challenge" at Lasting Memories comes with fruits!

I used a pineapple cutfile from the silhouette designstore, cut it out with my cameo and backed it with several patterned papers. The title is a cutfile, too. I think it is from misskatecuttables.

Here you can see the backed pineapple a bit closer. It took a lot of time, but I love how it turned out.
