Make like a tree and LEAF! ;)

I have a weird obsession with Fall.  I don't really know how to describe it or defend it, for some reason the idea of the season brings such great memories and hopes with it.  Don't get me wrong, I'm a gal that appreciates all seasons but there's something about the transition seasons (especially fall) that gets my knickers a'knockin'!  The colors, the warmth and the chill (oxy-moron I know!) makes me so excited and it's what inspired this craft (and I was also inspired by this)

I purchased the frame 1/2 off at the Lobsters for $7 and then purchased the 3D Dots.  The fall scrapbook paper was leftover from my wedding as well as the leaf punch-out.

I punched out a bunch of leaves using a bunch of different papers.

I then positioned them on the cardboard found inside the frame.  The only thing that this picture doesn't really capture is the 3D effect - because I used thick dots to adhere the leaves to the cardboard, they kinda stick out.

Ahhhh!  Fall!!! :)

I've entered this into the CSI Fall Challenge
And into the Fall Frenzy Party:


  1. Your leaves look great! I love the colors! Thanks for linking my project.

  2. What a fabulous idea - I love it!

    I did something similar with butterflies in my daughter's room, but this would be perfect on my mantle.

  3. Very nice. I just picked up a leaf punch like this on clearance at Hobby Lobby because I couldn't let it sit there and be bought by someone else! Glad to have more ideas for using it!

  4. Love your idea. Looks great. I may have to copy this one. Thanks for sharing. Oh, also, I am a Karie too!

  5. What a good idea, it looks great! I will have to try something similar.

  6. Great! I linked to you here:


I love to hear your thoughts - leave me some loving!
