Fence Die Cut for SOUS

Here is a layout using my Cricut/Gypsy and the cartridge- Heritage- for all the cuts on this layout including the fences. I was visiting my daughter-in-law and granddaughter this summer for a few days and we went to Amana Colonies one afternoon. I really enjoyed the specialty shops and all the history in this little village. The best part of the day was going into the oldest working wool mill- and actually seeing them weaving rugs and blankets while we were there-very interesting and amazing at the same time. I just had to buy a wool blanket when I was there for myself.
The paper (kraft color) is by My Mind's Eye which I just layered on the pics with small white borders and cut out some places that we visited from a brochure and inked them with Tim Holtz distressing ink-" old paper". I then hand stitched with cream embroidery floss some x x x scattered on the poage. and journaled in the red barn cut in the middle of the page.
This is kinda a plain looking page- but I wanted it to look that way since life was so simple at  Amana  Colonies.
I will be applying this layout over at Stuck on You Sketches this week for using a fence on a layout.


  1. Love all the images you cut from the Heritage cartridge!!! Love the corners and hand stitching!! Hope all is well with you.

  2. Great lo Debbie! I agree that simple is better for this one. But hey, look at all those awesome Heritage cuts! Love the lamp post!

  3. Great LO, Heritage is one of my favorite carts! I'm so glad you shared it with us over at SOUS!

  4. This looks like I place I would love to visit! Love your simple layout - very appropriate.

  5. Oh Debbie...this is great!
    What perfect touches for this page!
    I wish we had something like that around here..
    I really find "old America" one of the most interesting things ever!
    I am certainly NOT tough enough to have been a woman in that
    time but there's something it does to me to remember that time,
    read stories, etc. I am glad you shared this with us!!!!
    Hope your week is going well!
