These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

In case you may have forgotten, the Fall Seasonal Expressions catalog products are retiring this week.  With the catalogs only lasting two months, you don’t much time to allow things to sit in your cart before they are no longer available. Today, I thought I would share with you a few of my favorites from this catalog that you might want to snag before they disappear.

Hawthorn Paper, Shapes, and Complements

Close to My Heart did not disappoint this season. The Hawthorn collection had to be one of my preferred products to create with. Full of corrugated patterns, rustic fall designs, and vintage images – this collection is full of possibilities.   Can you believe that the scrapbook kit is ONLY $32.95I got myself two because I fell for the pre-printed pages and die cuts. I may not create them as shown, but I have a bunch of layouts planned.


Every Little Thing Vellum Die Cuts

The website image does not do this set justice. If you search my blog, you will find that I used these vellum die cuts on just about any project I could. Left as is, they create a simple statement. Add a bit of color, and your project pops. These 10″ sheets of vellum can be shaded with markers, inks, and watercolor pencils.


Fall Stamp Sets with Matching Thin Cuts

We had quite a few stamp sets that came with matching Thin Cut dies, and, this season, I could not get enough of the Perk-Up, Autumn Blessings, and Sunflower Sympathy sets.  I am a sucker for anything that involves coffee, which meant that many fall cards included one of those cute cups or coffee rings. ☕


Mix-In Paper Packet

MissCarriesCreations-FallMixinFor those of us who ADORE paper, the seasonal Mix-Ins are a great way to add to the stash. I truly enjoyed the charcoal plaid, roughed up designs, and beautiful fall patterns. These papers are intended to match many of our collections, allowing you to easily add them to any project without overwhelming the design.


Layered Leaves Thin Cuts Dies

I know, I know…I think I have mentioned these so many times, but they ARE MY MOST USED ITEM. I am in the process of creating a new video showing how I used the Layered Leaves Thin Cuts on TWO Christmas projects. Make sure you are subscribed to YouTube Channel so that you are notified when they are uploaded.


Many of the items may have sold out before this posted. I am hoping that you were able to get yourself a few of “my favorite things” before they were gone. If you didn’t, make sure that you grab some of the holiday items soon. Like I said, with only two months to purchase, you have to snag them quick.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

FALL-ing For Julep with H2H

Normally, you would not think of Julep as a color for fall crafting, but, recently, I have found this shade of green one that can create some beautiful autumn projects. It is an odd mix of green apple and juniper with a little splash of evergreen and it coordinates with with almost any color in our collection. For this week’s Heart2Heart Challenge, we are featuring our color of the year – Julep68760081_10156810073463089_2999619358688280576_o.jpg

As I said, the color Julep has been a great color to use for fall.  I recently used it when creating “Autumn in Wisteria” and, today, I am using it to create this adorable Falling for Julep card. Isn’t it adorable? I just love those little pumpkins and leaf shapes.MissCarriesCreations-FallinJulipH2H

Here are a few of the Julep products I used to create my card:

This card was super simple to make.  After cutting the pieces using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts dies, I layered them onto the card base, and added a few Vellum Cut-Outs.  MissCarriesCreations-FallinJulipH2H-Detail.jpg

I hope that you have been inspired to create something using our Color of the Year and that you plan to share your Julep creation with us at Heart2Heart. This challenge lasts through the month of October. Check back each week to see what other challenges you can join.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
