Sweater Weather 12×12 Fall Layout by Erica fields

Hello, my crafty friends! It’s Erica here on the American Crafts blog! I am so excited to be sharing with you a 12×12 layout! I am featuring the new Amy Tangerine / Late Afternoon paper collection.

To begin the process of building my layout I first selected a few 12 x 12 sheets for my base. I cut 1 inch off both sides of the cardstock to create a border. I then used a square stitched metal die to create 3 square layers and used foam tape to add dimension. I also die cut a heart frame to add another layer to my square dies cuts. I then die cut some flowers and leaves out of patterned paper and foil cardstock.

Next I layered my flowers and added buttons for the centers using the We R Memory Keepers Button press.

I am now ready to start adhering my layers. I used a frame die cut and added it to my photo. I also used some of the Thickers stickers and ephemera to decorate my layout.

Then I decided to add some simple stitching to the top and bottom of my layout. I also added the cute heart paper clip to one of the first layers of my square dies cuts.

I hope that this layout gives you some fall crafting inspiration! If you would like a closer look at my layout you can visit my YouTube channel video for more details.
