I'm in LOVE

There are many things that get me excited...creative-wise at least.

I've been wooed by scrapbook paper, embellishments, wrapping paper, and ribbon.

I've oohed and ahhed in a store aisle, out loud mind you, much to my daughter's embarrassment.

But there is just one brand in the scrapbooking world I keep going back to. 

They are VINTAGE. They are SASSY, they are just plain WONDERFUL.  (And no, I'm not getting paid to endorse them....although I would take their product freely!)

October Afternoon.

If you haven't encountered them, you must.  You can go here to see the collections.

Take for instance this glorious 12x12 page...
from their holiday collection, which can be bought here or here, by searching under October Afternoon.  I can totally envision a Christmas layout with this.

And these embellishments to go with it of course...

You might even check out their new farmhouse line, which I plan to do in greater length.
I mean, there are stickers that show a YELLOW farmhouse.  I HAVE A YELLOW FARMHOUSE!  (it was meant to be.)

You might even think about using one of their other lines to make this. 


They even sell fabric. 

I think I might die.  Right here.  Right now.

Ideas are swirling around in my head...if only I had the time!

So, check them out.  It's worth your time.  It's definitely worth your money.

Just don't have a heart attack in the aisle!


  1. I love the embellishments sheet.. The retro look is beautiful. What great inspiration for some holiday papercrafting projects.

  2. I went to the sites and have gotten me hooked! I saw so many things that I can use. Thanks, thank you for sharing them! I can see why you get vocal in the aisles! LOL. Hugs!

  3. I'm in! I love the retro style. Just one question - Can I find it at any stores or only online?


Thanks for commenting...I love reading what you all have to say!
