My Fall Fave with Jennifer McMurtrey

Autumn is just around the corner, and there are so many reasons to love the change of seasons—cooler days, a change in our wardrobe, or our favorite sweet treats! Today, design team member Jennifer McMurtrey is documenting her favorite fall treat in a beautiful fall layout using our September Kit and add-ons! Let’s take a look!

Hello Elle’s Studio friends! Fall is just around the corner and it is my absolute favorite time of year. There is something about the season that makes my heart happy. Perhaps it’s the cool, crisp air, the changing leaves—or the fact that pumpkin spice lattes are back! My daughter has informed me that I’m “basic” because I love them so much, but it doesn’t bother me in the least. In fact, today’s layout is dedicated solely to my love of PSLs.

Supplies | September 2019 Kit, September 2019 Digital Cut File, Happy Moments Puffy Stickers, Home Sweet Home 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, Good Times Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – Outline, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die, Here and Now Stamp, Happy Heart Stamp, Oh Happy Day Stamp, Title Builder Stamp, Title Builder Vol. 2 Stamp

The September Kit and add-ons have so many wonderful elements and the digital content this month is amazing. As soon as I saw the flowers and leaves included in the September 2019 Digital Cut File, I knew they would make an appearance on a project. With this layout, I enlarged the flowers and leaves and cut several on my Silhouette using the patterns in the Home Sweet Home 6 x 6 Paper Stack. To keep the color scheme simple, I used three colors of patterned paper and printed my photo in black and white so it didn’t clash.

The idea of keeping each color clustered together came to me after I began playing with the placement of the flowers on my layout. I love the look and decided to create the title in the same manner using the outline Large Jane Alphabet Stamp and Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die.

Because the alphas were all outlined, I went back and used my favorite Elle’s Studio Sharpie pen to doodle a border around each flower and leaf to keep everything cohesive.

The title was a true labor of love and did take quite a bit of time to complete. After the alphas were stamped and cut, I began laying them out along the bottom of the page. Clearly, the letters do not stretch across the layout, but I really wanted the words to line up underneath their corresponding colors. In order to do this, I pulled out several different stamp sets and began adding sentiments between the first two words. I totally love how it turned out and it even matches the bold black of the writing on my coffee cup!

To give the layout a bit more texture and color, I added several of the Happy Moments Puffy Stickers among the flowers and underneath the title.

Today’s project has been so fun to create and I am still inspired to dig into the September Kit and add-ons to see what else I can make. I hope you are enjoying the amazing products this month as much as I am!
