Feels Like Fall with Kat Benjamin

Hello, friends! It’s Kat here today to share a new layout that I’ve created with the September kit and extras. Admittedly, it’s been a little difficult to get into the “fall spirit”, as we’ve been going through a terrible heat wave. However, these products certainly helped, and we finally got a cooler day last week! All the leaves were falling and my dog had a little spring in his step because the temperatures had finally dropped. I was struck in the moment that it is starting to feel like fall, so I snapped a quick pic of my pup surrounded by the fallen leaves and made that photo the focal point of my layout today.

For me, fall means a lot of layers and textures, so I wanted to find a way to incorporate a lot of layers and textures on my layout. On the left side of my page, I layered strips of patterned paper from the Thankful and Love You paper stacks, September Kit journaling cards, an Autumn Chipboard Sticker, a Gold Star Paper Clip, an Orange Puffy letter ‘M’ (for Moose), and my photo. I tried to add a little texture to one of the patterned papers by punching out a few circles from one of the papers.

I loved the look of the “negative” circles, so I decided to use that technique for my title, as well.  I used the Medium Jane Alphabet Metal Die to cut out the word “fall” and then used the negatives to make part of my title.  For the other portion of my title, I used the Orange Puffy Alphabet Stickers.

I finally added the last bit of texture to my layout by sprinkling around some mist and ripping the edges of my layout.  I backed the rips with one of the 4 x 6-inch journaling tags from the September Kit.

And voila—a layout that feels like fall! Have you started using your September products to document your fall memories? Make sure you tag us on social so we can see all your projects!
