Finding Fall Colors with We R Memory Keepers & GlueArts

Each time I take a drive or step outside I can't help but notice the beautiful fall colors that surround us this season.

The cooler temperatures and falling leaves beckons me to sit with a good book (or a good movie) relax and spend time with those I love most!

Today Designer Lesley Langdon celebrates finding fall colors in her neck of the woods with a colorful layout! GlueArts U Cut It Foam gives embellishments the perfect lift for added dimension.

Designer Patti Milazzo has an amazing fall tri-fold screen that would look beautiful on a mantle or table! Lots of details that stand out thanks to GlueArts Adhesives!

“Autumn Splendor Tri-Fold Screen” Home Decor 
GlueArts Designer: Patti Milazzo


Supplies: 

Glue Arts- 
Glue Glider Pro 
1/4 High Tac PRO+ Cartridge Refill - Pro
U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam
Extreme Adhesive Squares
Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares



We R Memory Keepers:
Autumn Splendor Designer Scrapbook Pad and Textured Cardstock Pad
Autumn Splendor Embossed Die Cuts – Love About Autumn, Cozy Nights and Pumpkin Patch
Autumn Splendor - Paper Flower Kit, Embossed Cardstock Stickers and Layered Chipboard Tags
Brad Setting Tool



Instructions:
1. Cut 3 – 5” pieces of pattern paper. Ink and distress edges.
2. Cut 3 – 6” squares of brown cardstock. Ink edges. Then adhere the pattern paper to the brown cardstock squares and machine stitch around borders.
3. Cut 3 – 6” pieces of chipboard. Ink edges and adhere the stitched paper squares to the chipboard pieces.

4. Adhere 3 Embossed Die Cuts to the front of each square using U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam. Attach a “Fall” sticker to the front of the “Autumn” die cut again using the adhesive foam. 
 5. Flip the squares over and attach pieces of ribbon to the chipboard backs with Extreme Adhesive Squares. I used 4 - 3” long x 1 ½” wide pieces of brown ribbon. I spaced the boards about 1/4” apart and positioned the ribbons about 1” from the top and bottom.
 6. Once the ribbon is secure, cut 3 more – 6” squares of brown cardstock to cover the back of the chipboard.
7. To further embellish the front of the screen, create a flower using the Flower Kit and a few flower punches. Ink, distress and layer the flower. Using the Brad Piercing and Setting Tool to pierce 2 holes in the center of the flower. Then separate the prongs of the mini brad as shown. Position each prong through the holes of a button and into the flower. Press down the prongs in back to secure.
 8. To create the bows for each square, tie a knot in a piece of 1 ½” wide ribbon, trim ends and secure to top of a tag with Extreme Adhesive Squares. Use the Extreme Adhesive Squares and Micro Squares to adhere the flower, leaf punches and “Happy Thanksgiving” banner made from a sticker and cardstock.
9. Punch 1/8 inch holes in the Chipboard Tags and string with hemp. Attach these to the bow – tuck under the knot – using Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares. Finally add a couple of silver buttons with hemp to each of the bows on the left and right squares.

    I love the fall because it is the beginning of the holiday season. When it starts getting cooler and the Daylight Saving ends, it just reminds me that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just right around the corner.

  18. We moved 8 yrs ago from a state where the leaves on the trees changed to a state where the leaves go from green to brown. We went to New England in Sept to see the changing colors. So that would be my fav thing. Also no more 100 degree temps.

  19. Patti's fall tri-fold screen is gorgeous. It would be the addition to a hostess gift, perhaps for Thanksgiving. The think I love most about the fall season is the spectacular colors the trees change to here in New York State.

  42. Fall is my favorite season. The trees glow with colour when the sun is shining and the sky is often the most glorious shade of blue. It's not too hot or too cold, and the air has a wonderful freshness to it. I just wish it lasted longer.

  59. The more I look at this 3 page creation, the more I like it.. Beautiful..

  60. I love fall for showing us the bog of 64 crayons.. any color you can image.. you can find.. anywhere.. just open your eyes! its also a time to put it into 5th gear.. and a time to sort out all the tings that one has stuff the brain in.. it always seems to get down after fall starts!

    Which is why fall creations are usually THE BEST of the entire year. Cards, Tags, banners.. its the one time of year you get to use almost all your colors.. if you have lots.. if you just have a few of a few.. they always seem to work out.. like the fall button banner.. just bits.. that work together cuz they follow the world!!
