Fall In Love

Autumn really hasn't started in quite the way I expected, the weather in my little corner of Britain is clammy, grey and very uninspiring. I was hoping for chilly, but crisp mornings; afternoons filled with golden sunlight breaking through the clouds and slightly blustery evenings that make me feel glad to be at home with the fire on. Oh well.

Thankfully, I've had Kara's lovely, lovely Fall in Love Class to help me make the transition from summer to autumn. (Not that I've noticed much of a difference as yet!) I finally managed to sit down and read through all of the prompts properly over the weekend and get together some of my materials. Then, with much excitement, I started working on this yesterday afternoon.

I've chosen a fairly plain palette of colours, but have lots of textures to work with including chunky cardboard, masking tape and threads - just to give it a bit of autumnal detail. I've also kept my mini-album at 6 x 4 inches, so that as autumn progresses, I can just print any photographs and stick them straight into the booklet or adhere them to the back of some of my pages with minimal fuss and effort. Less effort = more chance of finishing.


  1. Oooh pretty! I'm lifting that card! :-)

  2. Looks good. Hope fall brings the weather you like!

  3. Those are seriously cool.
    I have to say down this end of the country it's been a really picturesque autumn. I even went for a walk across a golden field while the sun was shining!

  4. This looks like a delightful project. I can't wait to see the finished mini. :)

  5. This are so cute! I wish I had heard of Kara's class sooner so I could have joined.
    Thanks for your comment! haha. I'm a bit of a man-eater, as my friends say, so I have high hopes of changing that. And thanks. Everything is already on the mends since last night. I just had a bit of an emotional spaz attack.
    Hope to hear from you more!

  6. Gorgeous colours Clair. I love autumn, summer's always disappointing here, at least you know where you are with autumn! looking forward to seeing what you come up with! :)
