Be Inspired By Fall

Fall is here officially, and before we head into the holiday season later this year, we have some great time to just enjoy all that Fall. Don't forget one of the big events of Fall....the Scrappin' Happily Ever After Fall Yard Sale!  The yard sale will be on Saturday, October 13th, and you will want to be there early to get the good stuff!!!  Ivy has updated the calendar here on the blog with all the information on the yard sale consignment dates and times.  Start gathering, labeling, and pricing your items now. back to Fall and all the changes Fall brings...cooler temperatures, changing colors on the leaves, and soon we will see the pumpkin patches and corn mazes open.  Fall in South Carolina is one of my favorite times of year. I am hoping to use some of my wonderful paper and crafting supplies from Scrappin' Happily Ever After to make great seasonal home decor items this Fall.  Ivy has stocked some great fall lines including the new Simple Stories lines: Harvest Lane and Take a Hike.  There are too many great Halloween lines and papers to list, and they would be great for many of Fall and Halloween home decor projects.  

I thought I would check out Pinterest to see what was out there for inspiration.  Of course, I found way too much inspiration, but thought I would share a few items with you all to get your creative juices percolating.  

There were some great Fall wreaths that could be made with paper.

I love this paper pumpkin!  It would be super cute using some of the Halloween Paper Lines or the Harvest Lane paper line at S.H.E.A.

Who doesn't love owls?

Framed art 

The idea of framed art inspired me, and I just may have to try this, only I thought it might be cute to have a framed piece with several small pumpkins and/or leaves all cut out of different patterned papers and organized in rows. 

Some of these projects could be made quite easily with the Silhoutte or Cricut, or using punches and templates.  Check out the great Fall and Halloween lines at Scrappin' Happily Ever After and get crafting for Fall! Also, don't limit yourself to paper lines specifically for the season.  Consider the colors you want to include, check out the backsides of some of the other paper lines, and you might find the perfect paper to compliment your project.

What Fall or Halloween crafting projects do you have on your to do list?
