Whether you’re looking for the perfect papers for your fall journal or planner, or if you’re simply a fan of everything that autumn brings, we’ve got you covered!


Felt Halloween Decorations

As Halloween is celebrated in October, we decided to create these adorable DIY Felt Halloween Decorations! We gave you a great selection of ghoulish ghosts, brilliant bats, and spooky pumpkins to really add some fright-factor to your Halloween décor!


Kathy’s Make a Wish gift Boxes

The way you wrap a gift can really show someone you care. Kathy showed us how to raise our gift-giving game with these super quick, yet very effective gift wrapping ideas and one-of-a-kind toppers!


Elle Baking Feature – Cinnamon Buns

For this month's baking feature, Elle has shared a delicious recipe for Autumnal Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns! These amazing treats definitely tick all the boxes for warm and cosy baking and are perfect for the first autumn chill.


Michelle’s Christmas Countdown

For us the Christmas countdown starts the day after Halloween. There’s nothing quite like the build up to the big day and with Michelle’s tutorial you can create your own Christmas countdown to keep track!


Halloween Pumpkin Tins

We loved creating these spook-tacular Halloween tin decorations! They are a super easy way to add a fun and creative touch to any party. Even though Halloween is over, these are so easy to adapt into other autumnal elements for the rest of the year!


Halloween Wall Art

In keeping with the Halloween theme, we created this lovely Halloween Box Frame Wall Art. This gives a lovely glow creating a calming ambience for the autumn months. We created a Halloween template but why not change it up and create something different?


V&A Collection Phase 2 Notebook Video Tutorial

Learn how to make your own beautiful pocket notebook using our lovely new V&A papercraft collection. It’s the perfect size for jotting down your lists, thoughts, or other messages and it will be extra special as you can say that you’ve made it yourself!


Kitchen Roll Tube Gift Boxes

Are you looking for a box for a small gift, such as jewellery, a pin badge, money or a gift card? Look no further! Transform a used Kitchen roll tube into a cute pillow box that will be just perfect. It only takes a few score lines to create so why not give it a go?

There has been sooo many amazing project ideas this month and sooo little time to make all we wanted, but the girls have been making some of the phoneholders here earlier, and we have made several animals and boxes out of paperrolls, something we´ve done for years, so it has been a bit of crafting, even not nearly as much as we all wished. Biiiig congrats to all the lucky winners here, please enjoy your amazing prozes ladies.
