Missy Whidden literally dipped the Dipped Leaves cut file in gold! AHHH! LOVE!

Hey, friends! Missy here, and we are featuring leaves again this week on our projects. I knew right away I wanted to use Paige’s Dipped Leaves cut file available in the Silhouette Store. I also went for a softer color scheme for this so I chose three lighter patterned papers from the Turn the Page collection: Paper 01Paper 16, and Paper 23. I cut several leaves in each color and heat embossed the ends with gold powder. I wanted to create the idea of leaves falling all around the photo so I scattered them around the page. I used several floral stickers from Paige’s new 30 page #StickerBook to embellish.
I did some watercolor work on the white background using some pinks and corals and I used quite a bit of gold Color Shine. I used the packaging technique and created lots of splatters with my brush. I lightly glued down the leaves and machine stitched through some of them using gold thread. They turned out beautiful! All these pink floral stickers are from the new Paige Evans #StickerBook.

I used the scraps from the leaf cut files to add layers behind my photo. I distressed the edges and tucked in some light pink thread for added color and texture. I highly recommend heat embossing. It really makes these cute leaves sparkle!

I used more of the leaves to create a cluster on the left side of the page. I used a Turn the Page Chipboard Sticker here as well as more florals from the #StickerBook. I also hand cut some leaves from some of the Turn the Page Ribbon and machine stitched through them. The gold looks so pretty against the cream crochet leaves. I tucked my title in here, which is a combination of Turn the Page Thickers#StickerBook alpha stickers, and a fussy cut “hooray” from an Oh My Heart 6x6 Paper Pad paper. I finished the page off with using a gold pen to write my journaling.

I hope you’re inspired by this page! This is the perfect season to use leaves on a project and there are so many possibilities. Be sure to check out Paige’s cut files in the Silhouette Store for even more inspiration! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll check out my process video:

I seriously have no words to describe just how much I love this layout! From the crocheted ribbon leaves to the leaves dipped in gold embossing power, from the the beautiful mixed media background and everything between... Missy Whidden is a rockstar!
