10 undeniable reasons why Autumn is the best season.

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – 10 undeniable reasons why Autumn is the best season

The summer days are drifting away, the nights are drawing in, there’s a chill in the air and even the die hards have been seen wearing trousers and shoes instead of the usual shorts and flip flops combo. That’s right, it’s Autumn. But there’s no need to let the change of season get you down – here’s a list of reasons to love this time of year.

1. There is nothing more beautiful than watching the leaves in your garden turn from green to yellow, to orange and then if you are lucky deep red

2. It’s time to wrap up warm in scarves, hats, gloves and comfy knitted jumpers. AKA a  perfect excuse for a whole new autumnal wardrobe

3.  Soup, homemade stews and hot chocolate topped with marshmallows and cream. Enough said.

4. Halloween – a night when we get a free pass to carve lanterns out of vegetables, watch spooky films, dress up, eat loads of sweets and generally act like a child again.

5. It’s too cold for a night on the town, so it’s a good job there’s plenty for you to watch on the box. Autumn boasts the return of The Great British Bake off and Strictly Come Dancing

6. There’s just nothing quite so satisfying as jumping into a pile of really crisp, crunchy leaves. Again and again and again.

7. Bonfire Night. Fireworks, hot dogs, treacle toffee, & sparklers… what can beat it?

8. Taking cold, crisp morning walks. Refreshing and a great way to clear the cobwebs.

9. Darker evenings mean there’s more time to cosy up by the fireplace with your loved ones, pets, aforementioned mugs of hot chocolate and Paul Hollywood – on the telly, of course!

10. But really at the end of it all the best thing about saying goodbye to summer for me is the launch of our Autumn/Winter catalogue!

Christmas in July – Swing panel card

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Christmas in July – Swing panel card

Happy first of the month to everyone.  Today’s card is final card from my recent class ad probably the most complicated. Having said that once you break the elements down its a really simple concept.

On the front I cut out the window frame before embossing the rest of the piece with the brick wall TEF to create a log cabin effect. I then loosely fussy cut another piece to create the stack of logs under the window

The window piece has the sponged scene attached to the back and when you open the card you start to see the effect.

Inside I used more of the elements of the new Carols of Christmas bundle which ia available to buy from today. Yes that’s right TODAY!

The bundle includes these really cute decorations and you can die cut the same shapes which I raised with the new mini dimensionals. No sticky snips anymore. My class attendees loved them.

So did you spot the sweet little holly sprigs? They were so easy to make and once I started I just couldn’t stop stamping and die cutting. Bu then again its a Christmas card so can you really have too much holly?
