Hello Fall - September 2017



It's time for the September edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions!

We had a cold, wet summer where I live and mid August it seemed that fall was in full gear, but this last week we have been having temperatures in the 90's! We didn't have one day that hot all summer. Then I woke up Thursday morning to a perfect fall day, sunny and seasonably cool! So perfect timing to create with the Hello Fall kit that was sent out to the team by designer Marybeth Lopez! It is always so fun to see what each member of the team picks to put into their kits. It give you a glimpse of their creativity and always such a surprise. I am always so excited to see what Marybeth has packed into her kit each year and this year she didn't disappoint! Just the right amounts of gorgeous, co-ordinating patterned papers, stamped images and embellishments. With Canadian Thanksgiving only a week away this gives me the chance to make some more cards for my family. I made four cards with the kit but lots of supplies leftover to make more. In fact two are almost ready to be adhered together...

Head over to the 12 Kits blog to see what the rest of the team has done with this fabulous fall inspired kit!

I am submitting my cards to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes this week!

Gorgeous cards, Tracey! LOve your smooshed background created for our friend the scarecrow - he's dressed and ready for Dorothy's arrival! The orange plaid paper was my favorite of all Marybeth included... think she has more? xx

Lovely cards fall themed cards, we were the opposite of you on the west coast of Canada, we had your winter and summer, 90 degrees every day for 4 month, I was doing a rain dance every day but we didn't get it until last week, you probably know that the interior of BC was on fire since the beginning of July and many many people were displaced and houses burnt to the ground! We were lucky on Vancouver Island, not too many fires here. You must be in the Ontario area!

Tracey, love them all, but the maple leaf shines... literally! Just beautiful. Hugs!

Tracey each one is a joy to look at! I fell in love with that scarecrow card and gorgeous background ! You still managed CAS with patterned paper sometimes hard to do.
Hope it cools down for you soon. We had a taste of fall then heated up as well.
Love the plaid with the cart and pumpkin! Always love seeing what you make with each kit!

An array of gorgeous fall-themed cards, Tracey! From the cute scarecrow standing watch over his pumpkins, to the pretty leaf wreath, to market cart nestled on that fabulous orange background: all are truly amazing. The show-stopper for me: your maple leaf! LOVE LOVE and LOVE!

Excuse me while I gaze at all of the autumn prettiness happening here!! The coloring on your scarecrow is super cute and the background looks awesome. My favorite is the card with the large leaf and pretty autumn tree paper. Fabulous cards!!

Sharron said...

Oh, I love the scarecrow card with that fabulous background! You used the patterned papers so well, still keeping the design CAS. The wreath looks wonderful and the maple tree with the trees is stunning! Guess we were thinking alike with the cart of pumpkins!

A lovely breath of autumn, Tracey, all four cards are fabulous ... the patterns and colours are so beautifully put together! I was particularly taken with the background to the scarecrow, there's such a fantastic depth to it! Hugs, Anita :)
