My Little Pumpkin Turns One

Pumpkin Patch Birthday Party

On evenings when my little guy, Henry, decides to sleep well, I enjoy the occasional paper piecing. Granted, they make the scrapbook layout-making process much longer (this double-page layout took me a little over 2 hours), however, I am always so pleased with the results.

I used the Miss Kate Cuttables Pumpkins in Wagon SVG for my Cricut. I originally incorporated the eight layer pumpkins into my invitations, and then realized how perfect they would be on the scrapbook page as well. I used the invitation as my main embellishment, since it already contained all the party details.

We had Henry’s birthday at the Country Mercantile pumpkin patch, so it was perfect!

The burlap craze continues over at Craftaholics Anonymous! I’ve seen these wire frames at Michael’s and have always wanted to try this technique. I think it would make a fun kid’s craft, too.
