Celebrate The Occasion Challenge #36: Fall Theme

Hello Everyone,

My family and I have now moved into temporary housing in California. I am missing my old home and my friends terribly, but I am loving this CA warmth. We won't get our household stuff (and my scrapbook stuff ) until mid November. I am having weird withdrawal symptoms, but I am really excited because the home we will eventually move into will be walking distance to JoAnn's!

This project I made a few weeks ago for our weekly challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion. Our theme this week is Fall! I made my first shaker card for this challenge. The idea is you are inside looking out of a window with a oak tree outside and the leaves blowing about.

I used my Gypsy to make the base of the card and used strips of pop-dots to keep the layers apart so that the little leaves can move around when you shake the card.


I found the cutest little poem on line that I printed and put on the inside of the card. I found it here.

Falling Leaves
Little leaves fall softly down
Red and yellow, orange and brown
Whirling, twirling round and round
Falling softly to the ground

Little leaves fall softly down
To make a carpet on the ground.
Then, swish, the wind comes whistling by
And sends them dancing to the sky.

What was used:
Cricut Gypsy
Cricut Christmas Solutions (Window)
Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls (Leaves)
Cricut Paper Dolls Dress Up (Tree)
Recollections Basics Light Blue Paper
Cardstock: Recollections, The Paper Company

Happy Scrapping!
