September SOTM: 12x12 Layout

12" × 12" Pick o’ the Patch Page

Helpful Hints

To create the techniques featured in this artwork, follow the helpful hints outlined below. Then use the pattern (Make It from Your Heart®: Pattern 17) found on page 38 of our how-to publication Make It from Your Heart® for inspiration.
  • Cut the title letters at 1 3/4" using the Cricut® Artiste cartridge. Cut the small tag at 1 3/4" Shift+Accent 3 <&>, found on page 37 of the Artiste booklet.
  • To create the watercolor effect on the pumpkins and leaves, color with the marker sets until desired look is achieved. Use the blending marker, as desired, to soften the colors.
  • To create the shadow effect on the title, simply cut your title letters in a light color and then again in a darker color. Then, offset each dark letter under the light letter.
  • Embellish with stamped accents, paper accents, and accessories, adding dimension with 3-D foam tape as desired.
