More Fall

the leafs are still hanging pretty at our mantel

and I was ready for more fun with leafs

 mini paper leafs this time

cut out of color paint sample cards

out of the craft room came the boxes

filled with yummy materials

I am sooo happy we took the effort to ship all of this

after one little mood board with shades of red leafs

my appetite for color combinations was not fed yet

so I made one more

with a little hint to Christmas

how much fun can you have with stamps, paper cards, paper cutters and some ribbon?

as for me: tons of fun

the little vintage Christmas ornament is one of several I found at our local thriftstore

the finished moodboards of today

hopefully a source of inspiration to you

some quick ideas with these paper cuts and stamps:

embellish the cut out figures to your gift wrapping

decorate your Christmas cards with them ~ along with some stamps

~ have fun! ~


  1. What great inspiration, love the tiny leaves!

  2. Those teeny tiny leaves are too cute! Love all that red!

  3. Canada obviously agrees with you. Lovely photos and really loving how you put them all together; inspiring!

  4. Playing with paper, ribbon and stamps is one of my favourite things to do too. Thank you for the beautiful inspiration. x

  8. Thanx!!! Wil juist vandaag meer 'herfst' in huis gaan aanbrengen en op de één of andere manier vind ik 'herfst in huis' altijd het meest lastig... Dusss, komt helemaal goed uit dit! Leuk om te volgen dat jullie het naar je zin hebben in het verre Canada!!

    Fijne dag!

  9. Dear Maaike, your hunger for colors makes me happy on this foggy Tuesday!

  10. Jeetje wat ben je toch een creatieveling!! Echt super leuk om je blog én foto´s te bekijken!!
    Ik heb op het werk iets van je nagedaan: die herfstbladeren verzamelen en ophangen (net ietsje anders, maar jij was mijn inspiratiebron haha!).
    Liefs Renske

  15. Hoi Maaike! Op de blog Blue Velvet Chair van Michael mocht ik iets over mezelf vertellen en daarbij mocht ik drie blogs noemen die in mijn favorieten lijstje staan. De jouwe staat er natuurlijk tussen! Als je het leuk vindt, kijk dan even hier om te lezen wat ik over je schreef:

  16. Heeej Maaike,

    via via kom ik op je blog terecht. Wat maak je mooie dingen! Ik ben helemaal weg van alle frisse kleurtjes en patronen in je dekens! Ik kom vaker langs! xxx Evy
