Fall is in the Air!
On my Stampin with Crafty Klock Facebook page this week I asked if people were Team Summer or Team Fall. Suprisingly, the overwhelming answer was Team Fall – who knew? I know I love fall because of the cooler weather, leaves crunching under foot, good comfort food, and fresh apple cider! I mean I do love summer too – hot sun, cool dips in the pool, more daylight and just a generally more relaxed pace of life.
Yet as the weather begins to cool (here in Virginia we are currently experiencing what I call “false fall” – it’s been unseasonably cooler and I love it but it’s a little too cold for me to get in the pool!) I know the holidays can’t be far behind and I am so ready to switch to fall themed crafts!
You’ll Love the new All About Autumn Suite
That’s why I am so excited to give the new All About Autumn Suite from the new mini catalog a chance to shine! Let’s take a look at what this suite includes (all products will be available for purchase beginning on September 6, 2023:
- Autumn Leaves Bundle (stamp set and matching dies)
- Adhesive Backed Speckled Dots
- Copper & Natural Ribbon Combo Pack
- Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder
- Oxidized Copper 12 x 12″ Speciality Designer Series Paper
- All About Autumn 6″ x 6″ Speciality Designer Series Paper
This past week I featured this Suite in both my Tuesday Lesson@Lunch video (you can read more about that here) and for my Thursday live demonstration over on my Crafty Klock YouTube channel. For my live demonstrations I like to do a simple stamping card for those just starting out and a second card that is a little more stepped up. Here are the two cards I made this past week – can you guess which is which?
And while I didn’t actually demo this card during my live I did want to show it as a way to use scraps to create even more cards. This one uses scraps of the All About Autumn Speciality Designer Series Paper to jazz up the front.
Between all three cards, I managed to use every product in the All About Autumn Suite What do you think – are you loving this Suite as much as I do? Can you see yourself giving these beautiful cards to family and friends for the holidays? You watch how I made the first two cards from my YouTube video.
Looking Ahead to September
I love this Suite of products so much, I am using it for my September workshops. Every month, on the 3rd Friday/Saturday I host my monthly workshps. The third Friday is the virtual workshop over Zoom and the third Saturday is my in-person workshop in my home studio here in Middletown, VA.
So what’s included in a workshop you may wonder? Well we always make a total of 8 cards, 2 each of 4 designs. In addition to the card kits, participants also get a goodie bag with fun Stampin’ Up! products to use for the class with plenty left over for additional products. For example for my August Workshop participants received 1/2 package of 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper, a package of 2022-2024 In Color Dots, a Wink of Stella brush, a sponge dauber, and a little sweet treat! The registration also includes shipping for virtual participants.
When we stamp together we always have a fun time with lots of laughter and good natured ribbing! I mean after all, the BEST part of stamping is doing it with a comminity of friends!
