Layered, Embossed Wreath Card

When we think of the colors of Fall, they usually include reds, oranges, yellows and dark browns.  My project today goes in a little bit of a different direction.  I was inspired by this little embellishment from Carta Bella’s Fall Break ephemera pack.  This and some of the stickers and other elements feature teals with oranges and yellows with an off-white background.  I loved this alternative to the traditional Fall palette and decided to create a card using these same colors.

Cozy Fall Card

A cozy fall scene makes the perfect focal point on a greeting card.  For today’s project, I was inspired by the little house tag in Carta Bella’s Fall Break ephemera pack and wanted that to be a part of my card.  Since I was not doing any stamping, I wanted to add a stenciled layer and a leaf layer for the tag to rest on.

Traveler’s Notebook Fall “To Do List”

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

With school back in session and the weather getting cooler, it’s time to start thinking about Fall festivities.  There are tons of things I like to do this time of year, and as a scrapbooker, documenting is half the fun!  New themed scrapbook supplies make it even better.  For today’s project, I thought it would be fun instead of a Post-It, to write my Fall “to do” list on the pages of a traveler’s notebook.

Same Stamp, New Season

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

When you see a floral themed stamp set, do you usually think spring and summer?  I know I do!  I love getting out bright markers or paints and creating bold blooms that “pop” against white card stock, but there’s no reason to tuck those floral stamps away when the cool, Fall air hits.  My project today shows how to bring a floral stamp you might have a tendency to use for more bright and Summer-y cards into Fall.

Acorn Crafts

At my school, the acorn is our second mascot. Though this may sound weird, due to the old oaks we have and a perpetual fear of being hit by a fallen acorn when walking to class, the acorn has become a symbol for our school. Needless to say, I am fond of the acorn, which is why the recent craft trend of acorns brings a smile to my face. Here are just some of the acorn crafts I have seen and wanted to make for myself.

These cute candles won’t burn for long, but would make for a great decoration at any fall party you might be hosting. You can also make a ton with not much wax, so replacing them throughout the night would be easy.

Falling for Leaves

By Craft Trends Contributor, Lacey. Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

As fall comes into full swing, the colors and designs of fall leaves have started to be integrated into the craft world once again. Fall is my favorite season with brisk air, new classes, and hot chocolate. Not to mention the colors of the changing leaves I’m fortunate enough to be surrounded by in the Pacific Northwest. Not surprisingly, people draw inspiration from these changing colors in many ways. One of my favorites is through crafts. Here are a few of my favorite crafts highlighting the changing colors of fall.

Made with a hula hoop, this wreath is an inexpensive craft to highlight the colors and general feeling of fall. I love the look of the fraying burlap and that this wreath is perfect for the season. A perfect, fall, way to welcome people.
