Happy Fall

Well, the weather had heated back up here in North Texas, and for a while I thought it had forgotten about fall.  Until today.  I think it's coming back!  We have a cold front coming through and it's going to drop our temps to where they should be this time of year.  I can't wait, and just in time for Halloween!  So with fall on my mind, I created a little something using my TOP DOG dies and a few stamps from Reverse Confetti.

Top Dog Dies
I had been inspired by this creation I found on Pinterest and decided to make a sweet little foldable book/card thingy.  It's going to go on top of a glass curio cabinet that I've filled with all things fall and Halloween. 

I just had to get out the new FALL FOLIAGE DIES again and play some more with them.  They are my favorite leaf/acorn dies I've ever used!  Y'all need them.  Just sayin'.

I paired the leaf theme with the Forever Fall stamp set from Reverse Confetti. I used the "mat" part of the sweet SCALLOPED FRAME AND MAT DIE SET from Top Dog as a couple of the backdrops for my focal points on a few of the "pages". 

I cut them to be able to fit different angles and aspects of the die cut onto my small "canvas". 

It has been such a pleasure being a Guest Designer for Top Dog Dies!  I loved doing it and sharing my take on some of their products.  If y'all get a chance, put in a good word for me with them--I'd love to do it again!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  So as not to use too much liquid glue and chance that I might warp my fun little project, I used my ATG gun to adhere the main pieces together to make the base of my card/book thingy.  The leaves and the rest of the pieces were glued on with my old standby...Scotch Quick Dry.  LOVE that stuff!
