October Afternoon Farmhouse













{Reported by Ashley Harris}








With two collections with the name of Farmhouse (Crate Paper and October Afternoon) I was curious to see how alike they were in colors or design.  Well they are nothing alike.  Today we are looking into October Afternoon's collection.  So let's go!!


What I liked:
-I liked all the available embellishments and cardstock stickers!  There are a ton!
-Love the muted colors on this.  So typical October Afternoon.
-There was a good mix of tight patterns and larger patterns.  That gives a good variety to choose from.


What I didn't like:
-Nothing.


What I made:


 Supplies:  Cardstock: Bazzill Basics OP Wheat; Burlap: Misc; Pearls: Martha Stewart Crafts; All Other Product: October Afternoon Farmhouse Collection




Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics OP Wheat;  Clear Stamps: Paper Smooches; Ink: Close To My Heart; Pearls: Martha Stewart Crafts; Lace: Misc; All other Product: October Afternoon Farmhouse Collection





Supplies:  Cardstock: Bazzill Basics French Vanilla;  Pearls: Martha Stewart Crafts; Adhesive Foam: 3D Foam Squares, MyStik Permanent: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L:  All other product October Afternoon Farmhouse Collection






Where and How Much:

Manufacturer:  October Afternoon
MSRP: $0.99-$15.99

Bottom Line:  I loved this.  I truly did.  There was so much I could do with it.

A comment from a Cdn but I do love the October Afternoon collections so much I couldn't be quiet! I am trying to be patient waiting for the delivery of the Farmhouse collection and on pins and needles until I have my hands on the new Christmas papers and embellies. They are so pretty and versatile even if they are elusive to get hold of.
Thank-you for creating each collection more exciting than the last!!! :)

To be honest, I was more familiar with Crate's Farmhouse collection, so I just went to the OA website to take a peek inside their line - and I have to say I'm smitten! I remember Cath E. posted about the Gravel Road paper and said, "I live there" - it's all so charming! From the Button Box doilies to the Sunday Dinner chairs...from the stickers to the CUTE dresser mini-album...I know I want to visit Oct. Afternoon's Farmhouse now! :)

Kim H said...
