This is Anne’s last week in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say what a great pleasure it has been having you along with us! Thank you so much for all of your wonderful creations over the past weeks and we hope we get to do this again soon!

When Anne thinks of Fall, her thoughts to straight to Halloween. She has created a spooky piece of Halloween home decor – Mr Sherlock Bones – with some of Tim Holtz’s latest release, including Mr Bones Cling Stamp Set and the wonderful new Diamond Shifter Layering Stencil, along with lots more Tim Holtz products.

Andrea created a tag trio featuring abstract Fall trees made with Dina Wakley’s For the Love of Circles stamp set.  She made the tag backgrounds using a Gel Printing Plate for the first time and added some bold gratitude sentiments using Reverse Confetti’s Grateful Thankful Blessed die.

Anna-Karin made an autumn birthday card, featuring the lovely Simon Says Stamp Brushed Branches tree stamp. She embellished the card with dimensional flowers made with Tim Holtz Sizzix Funky Floral 3.

Barbara has created a little autumn house with  a lot of dies by  Village series by Tim Holtz SizzixTim Holtz Sizzix Fall foliage, Tim Holtz Sizzix Planks and Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed media 3. She colored her work with Distress oxides.

Cheiron‘s favorite fall holiday is Thanksgiving. She created a piece that reminded her of visiting her grandparents for Thanksgiving when she was a young girl. She used a Mini Framed Panel, Distress Doily On the Edge Die, and leaves from the Fall Foliage Thinlits. A sticker from the Idea-ology Quotations Metallic Stickers was the perfect sentiment to finish her projects.

As Emma‘s favourite season approaches, she was inspired by her long walks on a crisp autumnal morning and created a mini etcetera tag that was decorated with Fall Foliage and little ladybugs from the Entomology stamp set, playing amongst the leaves.

Kath decorated an Idea-ology Small Etcetera Tag with Autumn in mind using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Leaf Prints, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Fall Foliage and Alphanumeric Thinlits, an Idea-ology Paper Doll ready with his Broomstick (yard broom) to sweep up those fallen leaves.

Lols made a Fall card using Distress Oxide Inks, a Tim Holtz Leafy Layering Stencil and a Simon’s Exclusive Leaves and Scribbles Stamp and Coordinating Die Set along with a Thankful Die Set.


Macarena gave her card a very autumn and warm colors using lots of Distress Oxide Inks on her base with Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Leaves die. She also created a frame with leftovers from Tim Holtz Sizzix Ornate Frame die and colored it with Paper Artsy The Sage Infusions.

Maura was inspired by the Autumn bird migration to make her tag. She used Tim Holtz’s Autumn Layering Stencil, Carabelle Studio Les Oiseaux, and Simon Says Stamp Ornate Leaves.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix Fall Foliage Thinlits Die for the leaves and embellished the tag with Idea-Ology Photo Booth Vintage Photos.

Sandra went for the autumn colors for her card, using Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade for her background. For her focal point she chose the Layered Leaf and used GoPress Grey Foil on the edges.

Zoey used a bunch of distress paint and Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves covered with Tim Holtz Rock Candy Distress Crackle to decorate this warm toned tag
