Autumn Colors Blooming in Pathfinding

Autumn is arriving and with it the beautiful colors of fall.  Perfect inspiration for my layouts using the beautiful Pathfinding papers.

Full Layout #1 (click on photos for larger view)

I used accents mats from the Close To My Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  The actual image creates interlocking circles.  In Cricut Craft Room I elongated the image which created ovals. 

Left Page Layout #1

I trimmed part of the mat away for the border on the left side of the page, eliminating the frame and one strip of the ovals.

Right Page Layout #1

The mat on the right hand page was left intact.  Embellishments are from the Pathfinding Complements and the Pathfinding Assortment.

Full Layout #2

For my second layout I wanted to bring in some of the blue that accents the prints. To keep it from being overpowering I cut more mats with the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  To keep the small scale of the cut I cut four smallish mats and paper pieced them together.

Left Page Layout #2

The round chip board pieces in the upper corner imitate the print of the paper next to them.  Isn't the little fox adorable?  

Right Page Layout #2
Foxes and owls are so trendy now and so cute for these pages.  The Shimmer Trim between the papers helps tie these two pages in with the first layout.  

Classes are available to create these four pages.  Click on the Workshop, Classes & Crops link above for more information.
