Take time to watch the leaves turn

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Happy September, everyone! Crazy to think that summer has already pretty much come and gone, huh? The first day of Autumn for us Northern Hemispherians comes September 22! That's soon! One great thing about living here in Utah is that Fall time is gorgeous. The leaves turn all sorts of vivid reds, oranges and yellows and there's just something about the air that's crisper. Not only that, but it's a wonderful time to do some home decorating, scrappin', and card makin'!

**We interrupt this normal blog post to bring you exciting news**
Did you know that right now we've got a contest going on for fall-time home decor? Send us a picture of your projects (soon! The contest closes later this afternoon) to lana @ ohmycrafts . com and you could be eligible to win the Leafy Branch Cuttlebug embossing folder and the November 2008 Scrapbook Trends magazine. (Plus, we might just publish your project right here on our blog...)
**Back to the blog post**

We've done some digging and rounded up several Autumn-y projects by several of our fav companies.

First, have we mentioned why we love Sizzix? Well, among about a bazillion reasons, they're always on top of some great seasonal decorations! (Psssst....we've got a Sizzix sale going on NOW). Check out this darling pumpkin:




























And how simple would it be to recreate a candle with a fallish look like this? Bless you, Sizzix.




























If you haven't gotten much use with Ranger Ink (the wonderful company that makes Stickles!!), we would definitely suggest putting that on your list of things to do! There are so many amazing looks you can achieve. Look at this elegant design:




























And QuicKutz always has supreme designs to learn from (and to view nearly a gazillion more project ideas from QuicKutz, click here. You could spend all afternoon browsing through their ideas, and we know you wouldn't regret it!)
















































As usual, we've got a couple of lovely Cricut designs to throw into the mix. This first decorative plaque uses Doodlecharms.




























And this fun-filled scrapbook page was created with Stretch Your Imagination. A Cricut beauty, indeed.





























And not to worry—we've got plenty more to show off in these coming weeks. PLUS some super-cute ideas from our very own craft room.

Happy crafting!

What great inspiration! DH and I took a road trip yesterday, and were a bit surprised at that leaves had started to turn already! I love fall! But where did the summer go?
BTW, I have posted an new challenge on my blog (addy in my siggy) for your consideration. The prize this month is a huge selection of *purchased* embellies (as opposed to ones I make....). The more people who enter, the more I'll add to the goodie bag! Fly on over and check it out! (Some of these came from OMC!)
