Challenge 73 - Autumn

Hi everyone, Emma here with a brand new challenge for October and my challenge for you is:

We're really looking forward to seeing all your lovely autumnal projects and should you need any inspiration, then here's some fabulous creations that the Design Team have made.

I used the brown spotty paper and the "Autumn"wording all from the gorgeous new, Farmer's Market kit. I printed Autumn onto acetate and then used this in my die cut aperture window. I added a huge handmade flower, which I coloured myself with Distress Inks and some die cut leaves to complete my autumnal card!

I used the Back to School kit to make a cd mini book. Details can be found on my blog. 

I used the new Farmers Market collection to create an Autumn themed computer desktop background.


I created a little woodland scene using an old tin with an acetate lid that once contained chipboard letters & Sarah's Storybook Collection. I've used foam pads to create dimension inside & outside the tin.

I used the Farmers Market kit to alter a chalk board. Details can be found on my blog


I made a note holder with this wooden hanging block. The owls and branches are from Woodland Whimsies2 and the leaves from Farmer's Market. I used the alphabet cubes from Curio.


I used Farmers Market to create this autumnal scene, I have 3d foamed the trees to add some dimension to my card.

I've used Farmers Market and some alpha tiles from Scrapbook Basics to create a digi scrapbook page.

In this altered frame I used  Farmers Market, Curio,
and Documented 365 lines. I also used a little bit of  Hydrangea Hippo
florals along with Prima. Blessed accent was drawn out by hand and
then cut out with swivel knife.

You have until Sunday 28th October at midnight (GMT) to submit your entries, all the winners will be posted here next, good luck everyone and see you again soon!

  1. Hi! I just found your challenge and now following. I entered my digital card front. Here in Ontario it's Thanksgiving this wknd, so my card reflects that as well as the Autumn leaves. Gorgeous inspiration DT and look fwd to next challenge!

  2. The DT members have all captured the essence of Autumn but in different ways, with varying aspects. I recall setting Autumn as a writing topic in school - what I could have done with, as a prompt, is a set of images like this!

  3. Great inspiration from the DT members reflecting Autumn in all it's colourful glory. Love this time of the year. Elizabeth
