Free File Friday: Fall in Love with Leaves

Yay! It's FRIDAY and at Paper Issues we are all about the freebies--as in Free File Friday!  Go check out the PI blog for a round up of projects from the team showcasing various leaves that are offered in the shop!
I wanted the leaves to be layered around my fall photo and didn't even use white cardstock at all for the cut files.  I mixed it up with polka dot texture cardstock, kraft, and woodgrain! I love how it complements the small leaf background paper from Carta Bella Hello Fall. 

This project uses three Paper Issues free cut files: Autumn Blessings 
for the title, Boo Pumpkins for the orange leaves, and Fall Fun for the kraft leaves. 
from their Creekside collection by American Crafts.

Fall is definitely a fun season full of beauty if you live in
 an area that gives way to a free color-show! 
My son had so much fun collecting leaves of so many shapes and colors! 
It is definitely fitting to "fall in love" with nature!

The paper textures are my favorite part of this project.  Carta Bella has the thickest patterned paper and it has such a lovely texture to it.  It worked so well to sew it with a slight border left around it to wrinkle, fold, bend, and tear to give peeks at the lovely golden yellow "side B" of the paper.
The Pebbles, Heart of Home by Jen Hadfield dark espresso paper with sentiments is a must.  It is so sweet and perfect for documenting family!

Download the free files at Paper Issues and play along all month long!  
I can't wait to see what you create with leaves. 
Tag us online so we can find your work and send you some love!
