What’s your favorite season of the year? Mine? Well, of course it’s Fall Y’all. The Beautiful Autumn and Love of Leaves bundles coordinate so beautifully. I couldn’t resist racing ahead to the fall season to give you a sneak peek. Both bundles are a new product offering in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.

Because the Gilded Autumn Suite is filled with so many beautiful new goodies, I almost don’t know where to start. Well, first things first I guess. Look at those lovely new papers. The Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP has elegant desgins in earthy colors. Not only that the sheets are filled with copper and gold foil.

But wait, I spy with my little eye, new Brushed Metallic cardstock.Yep, that’s right. The pack is a 12″ x 12″ format and contains 2 single sided sheets; 2 each of 3 colors, bronze, copper and gold. And I’ve stepped it up a notch by embossing it with the Greenery Embossing Folder.

Cajun Craze is my favorite Fall color of all time. No wonder I chose it for my card base. The color palette also includes Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Mint Macaron and Very Vanilla.

Even more special, the Beautiful Autumn bundle includes a trio of punches. That’s right a trio! There’s a little leaf, sprig and acorn punch that match images in the stamp set.
