Pumpkin Patch


Warning: This is not a 15 minute layout!

I seen another Close To My Heart consultant (sorry cannot find it again) made a layout similar to this one and I just had to scrap lift it. I used a lot of the same things she did but I did make quite a few changes to mine.

I used the Dreamin paper packet for this layout but I did not have any of the blue patterned paper left so I made my own. To do this I used plain Pacifica cardstock and the square dotted stamp that came with the Dreamin Workshop on the go stamp set. I inked up the stamp with colonial white pigment ink and randomly stamped onto the cardstock. I then took my Clear embossing powder and sprinkled it all over the piece. Heat set it with my heat gun, and my very own patterned paper was created.


For the title “pumpkin patch” I used the art philosophy cricut cartridge exclusive to Close To My Heart and cut out the letters onto desert sand cardstock. I wanted them to have some texture so I used the same stamp as I did on the blue background piece and stamped onto the letters with chocolate ink. I then placed my brads into the holes that were automatically cut with the cricut. (This was very time consuming but made the letters stand out so much) I then took my Desert sand marker and traced around the letter edges to define them.

I also used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the leaves then used the stamp from Harvest happiness, to stamp directly onto them.

The bracket around my little pumpkin Novalee was also cut with Art Philosophy.

The pumpkins and attached leaves were stamped with the Harvest Memories stamp set and cut out by hand.

All papers were distressed with Chocolate Ink and a finger dauber.

  1. Oooo Laurie! This LO is adorable (especially your "little pumpkin"!).... Seriously LOVE your Pacifica custom patterned paper you made :) as well as the texture on the letters. While it may not have been a "15 minute" LO, the final result looks like it was worth every minute of your labor of love! Beautiful!
