Pumpkin Patch Cutie Layout

Hello crafty friends,
Hope you had a fun and crafty weekend! My name is Melinda (Melin) and I am so excited to be here with you as one of the new "Fab Four" team members.  I look forward to sharing with you each week along with the other super talented girls! is an online retailer with a huge selection of dies, copics, papers, adhesives and all the other fun stuff that makes our paper crafting so much fun! So let’s get to my simple and fun project.

Here is a view of my layout. I used the Classic Doodlecharms cartridgewith my Cricut Expression. The bear, pumpkins and brown charms were created with the cartridge. The patterned paper I used is from the DCWV Sweet Stack. I think this has to be one of my top 5 favorite stacks. I added a pretty strip of American Crafts Ribbon to the photo with a sweet little bow at the bottom.
Here is a closer look at the cute little bear. I “paper pieced” her together all from cuts in the cartridge.
I added a cute little button and some twine to the center of the little flower on her head. I inked her edges with Cocoa Cat’s Eye Pigment Ink. If you would like to see some of my other "Cricut Paper Piecings" you can visit my blog and find them HERE

Here is a view of the entire title. I used small doodlebug brads to fasten the 
charms to some burlap cord.

Here’s a closer look at the lettered charms. I created the title charms in Adobe Photoshop 
and sized them so they cut out with a 1” circle punch.
I layered the lettering on a green, 1 1/8” circle punch and a white 1 1/4” scalloped punch.

Here’s a closer look at the pumpkins. I inked the outer edges in someMango Tango Colorbox pigment ink and then used some Pebbles Basic Brights 10 pc. Chalk Ink to add some color to the leaves and the pumpkins. I also used my Copic E23 Hazelnut marker to add a little brown to the stems.
