Fall Is here and it is so colorfilled!

Fall is Here, Color Everywhere!

So often people think of spring as the season of color. Well coming from a place that is basically green all year round. By the way where I am from we have two seasons Hot and Hotter… When I recently had the fortunate to experience the change of season I was a child again! I ran through my yard with arms filled with gold, purple, and blood red leaves. I carried them around collecting more and more until my arms ached from the load. I was afraid they would blow away unless I collected them.
Well  I tried everything to preserve them but nothing could capture the color, until I realized that I could save them digitally. So take out the camera and save!
Well I want so much to show my Grand-daughter the beautiful colors of fall. I could ship her some leaves, but I decided to make her a little tote that she could carry with her. I decorated it with photos of  my beloved leaves!
I had the best time using both my CraftwellUSA eCraft and my newest love my eBosser for this project. I love them both.  I also used’s 8.5" x 11" Opaque Dark Inkjet Iron On T-Shirt Transfer Paper. This transfer is really great and you can’t see through like other brands.
I used my inkjet printer to make a montage of all of my leaves and then printed out a sheet of them. I was able to cut the lettering out of my eCraft I used a very light pressure setting of two and it worked great for my “Fall”.
Then off to the eBosser to make my leaf shapes. I used thin metal dies made by Sizzix and they work wonderfullly in this machine.
I actually left the dies attached to the card and was able to cut them at one time. I love this so that I don’t misplace a die (I know you never do that right.) I am in love with my eBosser.
Can’t wait to get this in the post for my girl. Well have you gotten your eBosser yet? Please leave me a comment and let me know how you are using yours. I would love to hear from you! Happy Fall! Debi
