Fall Leaves are Falling....


BBTB2's challenge this week is create something on your cricut with Autumn Leaves, Fall Leaves are Falling, love this time time of year! The best leaves that I found in my cricut collection are from the Scarecrow seasonal cartridge. I used gold and copper metallic paper and knew these leaves needed something more...so I took out the beloved Cuttlebug, found a great embossing folder that would give these leaves a crackled look...


And my Cuttlebug died in the middle of my project. DIED. I put my plates and embossing folder in and turned the arm and nothing rolled. I called Provocraft and they helped me troubleshoot the machine, and it looks like I have to get a replacement.



So my leaves are now slightly embossed. Making the most of what you have, right?

  1. Oh my Laura, this is just beautiful! I love the papers you have used and I love your leaves. I'm sorry your cuttlebug broke in the middle of your project, but I can see the embossing and it looks fabulous. I am loving that frame, it is a punch around the page punch?? Love, love, love this! Hugs!

    1. Thank you Brenda! Yes, it is punch around the page -- I love it even though I can never quite get my corners and border to meet perfectly.

  2. Laura, your layout is great! I love the papers you used, and your leaves still look great! Sorry about your Cuttlebug :( I have heard, though, that in a pinch you can use a rolling pin? Haven't tried it, but until your replacement comes, give it a whirl. I am excited to be on the DT with you!
