My favorite season is officially here…autumn! Cooler temperatures, sweater weather, pumpkin spice everything, apple picking, and the colors of the changing leaves are just a few of my favorite things about this time of year. Those cooler temperatures are bringing us inside more often and I cannot wait to bring fall colors into our home. While my daughter and I were decorating for Halloween, we might have snuck a few orange and red leaves into the mix knowing they could be left up thoughout the season!
As the weeks progress, we will be adding more brightly-colored leaves to our home and to our crafting projects. Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch will need to be documented along with all of the other fun seasonal activities we have planned. The easiest way to add a touch of fall to your paper crafts is to add a few leaves because nothing says autumn quite like the bright hues of the changing leaves! Adding just a few to your card, layout, or home decor project will instantly give it a cozy feel.

Cards & Scrapbook Pages
Along with autumn comes fall photo opportunities. Between the pumpkin patch, apple picking, and other fall activities, there will be memories created that will need to be scrapbooked! Invitations, DIY birthday cards, and thank you handmade cards can reflect the season as well through the addition of leafy embellishments.
