September 2021 - The Leaves Begin To Fall

 Welcome to our September Challenge. This month the theme is "the leaves begin to fall" chosen by the lovely Jane


  Welcome to September, wow autumn is just around the corner now.  I am delighted to be the host of the brand new challenge. I thought that I would chose, "the leaves begin to fall" as the theme for this month. Autumn is now just around the corner and the leaves take on their autumnal hues and begin to fall.  So I would like to see leaves as a main part of your project, either as the main background, or as the focal. No tiny single leaf in the corner of your make please!

Here is my make, yes those naughty snarky cats are up to mischief again amongst the falling leaves. 

I used both stenciled and die cut leaves for my background. If you would like to see how I put this together just pop on over to my blog here; where all is revealed. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone's makes for the month. Even if I don't have time to comment I will be visiting everyone and I will enjoy seeing the leaves beginning to fall. 

I will  back on Friday with my 2nd make.

Bye for now,

Hello all! It´s September already - I can´t believe it!For the falling leaves theme this month I made an art journal page. I used the pretty Tim Holtz thinlits die set for all the leaves.If you want to see some more, please hop to my blog.

Happy September!


When I think of September I think of  darker nights and Autumn.  I love seeing the leaves on the trees changing colour.  The leaves challenge has made me long for cosy nights when there is every excuse to craft!

Here is my first project:

Join me over on my blog to see how I created this card.

I can't wait to see your leaves related projects.



Hello there - I had a lovely time making this card for the challenge starting today - I know zebras aren't really in the jungle, and maple leaves aren't either - but I like them together! Leaves - what a perfect topic! I do hope you can join us! You can get more info on my blog here.

Hello everyone and Happy September! For this month's challenge I was inspired by happy memories of our travels to New England to see the Fall colours.

I used lots of Tim Holtz products to create this art journal page; to see how it all came together, please visit my blog Let's Art Journal. x


Leaves do not fall in tropical latitudes.... well not all at once!

Beach scene created with stamps and dies

If you want to know how I created this page, do come and visit
 me on my blog to see the sun set over my beach scene...


This challenge was just the push that I needed to use a die that had yet to come out of its packet.

If you would like to see how this came together, there are more pictures here on my blog. 

Take care and have a very happy month x
