“Family Time”, by Becki Adams.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and fall is my favorite season. Hello Autumn is an adorable collection with an amazing rich color palette that I adore! I used this collection to create a grid layout with 2 square photos and 2 squares for embellishment and the title.

“Shellin' Corn”, by Kelly Holbrook.
I'm really into using circles on my projects, lately. Here, I liked the contrast of the monochromatic leaves with the colorful leaves on top to add some interest to the background. The largest circle is grounding my photo, the second largest is under the title, and the smallest has a couple embellishments.

“The Best Days” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Fall is my favorite season, so you can imagine how excited I was to see a new Bella collection dedicated to it! For my card, I started by layering on a couple of the new patterned papers (isn't that woodgrain pattern yummy?) together with some added stitching for texture. The focal image is a couple of the new Paper Pieces layered together and popped up. Finally, I added a few sentiment stickers.

“Thanksgiving” card, by Ashley Marcu.
Hello Autumn has some of the most beautiful patterned papers. I had to highlight one of them on my card! Once the background was set I layered Die Cut Pieces, stickers and Designer Washi Tape to finish the card.

“Autumn Love” card, by Diana Fisher.
The Hello Autumn collection is a bold fall collection with whimsical owls, unexpected botanicals and rich coordinating blue colors that really compliment the orange and tan colors. I instantly adored the owls and had to make them the focal point on this card. Even my son laughed out loud at the "owl" pun on the 2x3 card that can be found on the Daily Details paper.
